    Let me see,

    Large frame (am 6th)
    Fox 2011 40s with kashima (very sweet)
    Sunline 745 bars
    Straitline stem
    Thomson post
    Saint with 38t e13 ring & 11-28 saint cassette
    Yeti wtb Devo saddle that Yeti gave me(cheers guys)
    Saint brakes with 200 rotors
    Saint cranks with spds, really I can't do flats.
    Some old dt 5.1 on dt hubs that were on an old team bike I had.
    Schwalbe big Betty tyres.

    Think that's about it?

    There is a test in the latest dirt mag too.

    I think it's about 40lb, will get it weighed next week at bike shop.

    Rides awesome, much nicer than my old 303. I think going to a large helped too. Jumps better, feels stiffer and one rail is easier to look after, even though they are super simple to care for anyway. Bit if grease and away you go.

    The forks are the biggest jump over my old 40s on the last one.

    This bike is a keeper for sure. As it's a special one, I'll look after it, but it's going to get used.

    Yes, they made 100. Mine is no 17

    Each frame is made in the Yeti factory by the guy who welds the team bikes, so essentially its as close as you can get Aaron Gwins/Joey Schuslers bikes apart from the stock shock on ours.

    Infact the customer bikes had a tiny little alteration the team bikes did not, and now this years team bikes have it too.

    I spoke with Yeti when I was over there last, and they told me they did not see this bike becoming a cheaper far east produced frame. So if you want the luxury that the 303 25th gives you, its gonna cost!!

    I know there are 2 left in the UK, but elsewhere I am not sure.

    Yoursoma- looking forward to seeing it built up!

    here is a few team bike pics for you all............ (switch your eyes to wiiiiiddddddeeeee screen)

    thanks a lot for the extra pictures

    mine will be built somewhat different,
    E13 cranks, BOS Idylle up front, 2011 Avid Code brakes, Deemax Ultimate wheels, SDG seat and post, did not aim for the factory replica look.

    really looking forward to riding that thing, gonna be my first Yeti

    That will be a cool build. I have heard nothing bad about the BOS forks.

    Mine looks a bit like a factory copy I know. I just like the Shimano stuff over anything else.

    Be cool to see what you think when you get it.

    The Deemax wheels are perfect for the anniversary paint

    finally i got around to ride that thing some more.
    so far i am really happy with the pointers i got from JohnP @ yeti or better one of their test riders for the RC4 setup...

    i started to play around with it but always went back to the original setup...

    the only complaint so far is the really shoddy paintjob...
    that's the most expensive frame i ever bought and the paint is the worst...
    will i get a free respray at the end of the year or what?

    YourSoma- i have been thinking the painting on the 303rdh isn't all that great either.. my black 303 just looks worn since the paint/clearcoat/etc just looks beat after just one season oh well i still enjoy riding it.. i just wish maybe we could figure out a better paint solution. //g
