    Came in at 28.8 lbs with slime tubes and XT SPD pedals.
    I got the enduro kit from Yeti. So:

    Fox 32 140mm FIT RLC
    Cane Creek Head Set
    SRAM x-7 crankset tripple
    SRAM x-7 front DR
    SRAM 10 SPD 12-36 cassette
    SRAM 10 SPD chain
    DT SWISS M19 front 15 through axel / QR rear wheels
    Avid Elixir 5 160 mm brakes

    MSRP $3200 before tax at my LBS. I know that is high compared to online but i love supporting my LBS, it is a one man show and he is a friend of mine.

    Took her on her maiden voyage today. Impressed as hell. I came from a steel 29 hard tail. Loved the full sus and how flickable the bike is.

    Did Yeti add a bottom chainstay yolk protector on the new frames yet? The exposed carbon under the BB is a rock magnet.

    29ers are great but my ASR5 is much more nimble on tight trails then my Lynskey was. Switchbacks and stuff. Not a big deal, but a fun change.

    Everything from 29 HT to 26 full sus has been positive. The only slightly negative thing I can think of is on long flats I notice the difference in keeping momentum. Once you spin up the wagon wheels they tend to keep going. On the 26 on the flat straights I found I had keep my effort up a bit.

    There is still nothing on the bottom of the carbon yolk. The chain side has some nice protective plastic on the bottom, inside and top of the stay.

    Great photos monkeynuts!

    Here is a quick cell phone snapshot of mine:



    RockShox Reverb. With creative routing. Worked perfectly during a quick 1hr ride.
    Steer tube trimmed.
    Crossmax ST Wheelset setup tubeless.

    Will try and get some better photos tomorrow.

    All bike frames can break or be destroyed. I've trashed high end steel, titanium and carbon frames. I've also broken bones and torn skin. **** happens.

    Why is your bike almost a pound lighter than mine? Did you list your build?

    Those pictures are awesome. I can't seem to ever get a good picture of how the carbon looks in the sun.



    I just changed from a 1x9 to a 2X10:

    Sawi, I love the black fork! How'd you get that? Mine came with white and I didn't realize it was available in black.

    Hey Salt Yeti,

    Thanks, it's a Talas, so that's why it comes different; do not know if you can get the Float in black too. (although I've seen some other pics of Yetis with black forks maybe they are 2012 Floats).

    Cheers!

    Nice bikes. On issue of forks, in Fox catalogue seems all the Floats are white. Interestingly, I've come across this 130 Float - black - at Competitive Cyclist. I suspect this might be the same ones that come on the Santa Cruz TRC. I'm tempted - I'm running a 120 mm fork now on my 5C, and am think of going to 130 mm.

    First ride on new ASR5C

    Finally had opportunity to ride the new bike. It's the Competitive Cyclist X0 build. So much better than my older Gary Fisher Sugar 3. Didn't lose traction once today, even in the snow.

    Built my ASR5C!

    Got the frame on fire sale a few weeks ago. Spent the next few weeks buying up parts, and viola! Sorry for crappy cell phone pic.

    • -Complete Sram XX drivetrain (bought one part at a time from eBay, probably some hidden takeoffs in there)
    • -Joplin 4R seatpost
    • -Gore Rideon cables
    • -DT Swiss Tricon M1700 wheels (again, takeoffs from eBay $450 total, can't believe I got them for that, waiting for one to taco)
    • -Formula R1 brakes ('Used 50 miles' aka several hundred miles - had to have the rear caliper rebuilt but, worth the price)
    • -Easton EC90 bar with Haven stem (added after this pic)
    • -XTR trail pedals - added after this pic


    My goal here was light in the right places, little beefier where it matters (wheels, pedals). I hope I am somewhere mid 24lbs with the Joplin . . . gotta find a scale

    To Do:
    I have the chipset for 12x142mm thru axle rear, waiting on the axle and hub endcaps to come in and I will be 'done done'.

    I love this bike, its light, stiff, fast, softens up when you hit the big stuff hard. Oh and light. Did I mention light?
