    Here's my new 5

    Vanilla build with XT drive train, XX Rev, GD post and Oozey wheels. No ride time as I just built it up yesterday but it feels good so far. Can't wait for the ifrst ride tomorrow... now if the rain will hold off.

    Thanks. I was worried how it would look if I went with the blue frame. Hoped for an Ano Black but this is all that was left. I would have bought it no matter what color it came in though. My rear brake line was a bit too short so had to improvise with the routing until the new line comes it.

    I also went a little crazy with the frame tape on the rear triangle... Not much bare carbon left back there.

    I did the same. I also do like the chainstay protection Yeti installs from the factory.

    Any bigger riders on a 5 that can chime in on Psi of the ctd? I'm 200lb and running a 1/2 inch sag, should be spot on 25%, which for me is 195 psi. I had this on its maiden voyage today and it tended to blow through the mid travel. I was a bit surprised because I though the bike was supposed to have a more firm mid stroke. I was thinking that it might be initial stiction on the shock that is causing it to show 25% sag when it might really be softer but I'm rocking around a bit and then resetting the o-ring so it should be correct.

    What is your weight and what psi you running?

    Btw, the bike rides and climbs well with the zero stack bottom cup I'm using and the Rev at 130mm. Gets hung up on the chunky stuff during steep climbs a bit but no more than my old motolite. Really flickable and fun bike. Digging it so far.

    Lots of beauties posted recently. Love these bikes. I've noticed on mine that the difference when I switch from the 29er to the 5 are not as dramatic. Not sure why, probably head angle or something, but couldn't be happier with the turquoise baby!

    CC should give the total build weight at the bottom of the order page.

    Ya it said 25.88 pounds, just seemed a hair on the light side for an aluminum frame with a 140 on it. Stoked if its really that light!

    Not sure what you mean here either, but, on all my bikes, I've always had chips and chain slap all around where the green arrows are, so I wrap both the chainstay and the seatstay with extra handlebar tape or cut an inner tube down the middle and use it for wrap.
    Sorry for the late late reply. Here is where the chainlsap is. Don't know how to put those fancy arrows on an attachment but if you blow up pics you could see nics. The ASR 5 build/picture thread-lower-chain-stay.jpgThe ASR 5 build/picture thread-upper-chain-stay.jpg

    Ok so on Pic 1: have a piece of stick-on frameguard there now. You could even use 2 layers. This is needed pretty much on every bike I have ever had, even my other bike with a MRP G2 chainguide. Don't know how it gets up there but it does. And, even if you used a chainguide to reduce chain slap, one day you'll probably get chainsuck up there on a muddy day, so best to protect it.

    On pic 2: I think this is a pic of chips on the bottom, outer edge of the chainstay, right? This is most likely chain slap and unavoidable. I highly recommend wrapping the entire chainstay as in my pic, with bar-tape or an inner-tube cut down the middle. This has also been a necessity on every bike I've owned.

    Thanks for the tip. Have a piece of vinyl tape for temp. Need to get some of the Lizard skin silicone tape pieces. Just trying to keep it clean looking as possible so trying to avoid a big wrap of some sort unless I can find something cool looking.

    How does the chain get way down/over there on pic #1? Are you sure it's not from rocks being thrown up from the front wheel? As for the bottom pic, I put a piece of black electrical tape right there on my frame, and there's not a scratch after a full season of riding. Maybe a Shadow+ or Sram type2 would help....

    Yes, not rocks. It happens while in the small ring. I have a spacer on the drive side of bottom bracket so can't move it out anymore. Just have to keep protective tape on it. Bikes worth it though.

    Here is my first ASR5:

     photo YetiASR5_zps4eeed560.jpg

    Here is my second ASR5, doing a spot of riding in Les Arc:

     photo IMG_0669_zps41205764.jpg

    ...and back home after a bit of a clean and refresh:

     photo IMG_0958_zpsedfa9467.jpg

    .... and here is the current one:

     photo IMG_0316_zps50d3eb4c.jpg

    All different builds - but some parts have migrated from one bike to another. Each done lots of miles and the current one is in bits waiting for some suspension bushes to arrive. Now has a dropper seatpost on which is great fun....

    Took her out for a first ride yesterday and I'm very happy. Guess I can now officially say I"m glad I joined the tribe. So much more nimble than my last bike for the slow, techy, twisty, rocks and roots sections we have in New England. Tight up and downhill turns are a breeze compared to what I was used to. The only thing I need to get used to is getting the front up. My last bike was too easy, and I don't mean in a good way, so that's just what I'm used to. I'll need to change my technique, put a bit more oomph into it. I had been thinking of going back to a hardtail but this bike should be perfect for what I need. The rear end is very firm, easy to pedal, but takes away a lot of the big hits.

    The bike is mainly X0, Cane Creek Headset, Easton Haven stem, American Classic wheels. Fork is a Fox Talas 110-140 which is great to have on the techy sections. In fact most of my riding is on the 110 setting and the rear suspension on this bike is nice and firm so pedal strikes were no issue, and on our trails that's important. The Ritchey bars and Shimano pedals are about the only thing that will be changed once I figure out what I want.

    Love those less-than-common colors. The slate gray ano, blue, and orange look fantastic!
    I live with fear and danger every day. And on the weekends she lets me go mountain biking.
