    I'm a bit late to the game, but just got finished (more or less) my lightweight ASR5C build:

    19lbs, 5ozs

    Well done, fantastic weight. You could go even lighter with a 1x11. Just sayin'.

    Mine's still in the 26lbs arena with my Haven build. :P

    I'd die with a 1x11 on a particular race that I participate in every year - Squamish Test of Metal.

    Looks like you have a 24t granny? And I assume a 11-36t rear?

    So:
    Your current lowest gear would be 24x36 = .7
    1x11 would be 30t front x 42 rear = .7 as well.
    ( I'm using BikeCalc.com - Bicycle Gear Ratio Chart )


    But, just jokin around, not trying to convince you to go 1x11. Its still pretty pricey, my bikes are 2x10 and 1x10.

    You're right in that there wouldn't be a big diff on the low gears from my build to the 1x11 (I'm currently 40/26 at the front and 11/36 in the back). I get .72 and if I went 32 front and had the 42 rear I'd be at .76. However there are some long fast downhill sections too and I was spinning out the last time I rode the race with a 42 front, so it'd be nuts with a 32 front. I need the range of 2x10 for that race.

    Hi guys , some lovely looking bikes here. I've just posted a couple of asr questions here which I'd love to get your opinions on:

    Yeti asr 5 from stumpjumper elite

    Thanks!

    My 5c, after riding it for about 6 months with the 120 fork I have changed to a 150 to see how it goes, hopefully I haven't ruined it! I ride it uphill to go downhill though and have lightly beefed it up somewhat to suit.

    Medium frame
    XT drivetrain and brakes
    32t chainring and bashguard
    DT swiss 350 32h / ZTR crest wheelset
    Fox factory 150 ctd fork / 130 rp23 shock
    50mm stem, 720 bars
    Fox DOSS dropper
    12x142 rear axle
    Rock razor rear / Hans Dampf front

    Weight unknown, somewhere in the 11kg range I'd say

    DU bushing alternatives

    My ASR-5 has a hunger for DU bushings... I recall reading in the past about others changing to a pin-type busing (similar to the polymer versions), as well as using RWS needle bearings, but I can't seem to find those threads now, and can't find applications for the 23.5mm size (which seems to be proprietary) in either option.

    So... those that have made a conversion, any conversion, what did you use, and how has it held up?

    I used the RWS needle bearings originally which worked great. I ended up converting the suspension front and back to BOS which was a huge improvement all round, so I'm running the BOS Viper out back which is so sweet and smooth. They sell their own needle bearings to fit the shock which I found to be a much better/tighter fit than the RWS needle bearings. Feels nice having the needle bearings on the suspension making it all buttery smooth.

    Do you remember what size you used? The guys at RWS aren't even sure, since they don't have a direct application for the ASR-5.

    Spacer measurements are found in the online manual for the ASR-5 in the exploded parts diagram. link below. Look on page 13 (or 26 actual number on the bottom left corner of page)

    http://www.silverfish-uk.com/DocumentHandler/12409

    The top spacer is 22mm and the bottom is 23.5mm with a 8mm inner dimension for the bolt.

    Awesome, thanks.

    Has anyone tried the Fox polymer bushings on the lower/rear eye? Matt at Yeti said it won't work, that it would fail, but no explanation... I don't see why the DU bushings with the aluminum reducers ("hats") would be superior in that application... Tempted to try it anyway.

    Unfortunately the 23.5mm is a proprietary size; fox does not offer it (this is per both Fox and Yeti). That's where the challenge is.
    Fox makes a 23.36mm kit for the polymer bushings, but Yeti says it won't work, that I have to stay with the old style 3pc (I'm skeptical) that I have to get through a Yeti dealer.
    RWS says they don't have a direct fit on file for the ASR-5 (probably for this reason), but that we can probably make something work, so we are still trying to determine what to start with; their .5mm shims will cause an offset (that's why I was hoping you had a part #, since I know that worked).

    I remember that the BOS lower spacer was to wide so just slowly sanded each side as equally as possible till it fit flush. Didn't take much effort and was just like taking the anodising off. I've had zero problems in 2 years. I used Custom shims made by local machinist to fit either side of kit to make up to 23.5 with the RWS kits, was quite fiddly if I recall, but worth it. I think you can get them made on eBay as well for very little money.

    You can get the little guide pin tool to help line up the bolts/spacers which makes the job easier. Link below

    There's always the BOS kits, I'm not 100% sure the needle bearings are the same size to fit Fox shocks.

    Hmm, at $99 shipped to the US, I think I'll explore local (US) options. Haven't heard of BOS, I'll google some and see if they are available in the states. Having some shims made for the RWS bearings might not be a bad idea, in fact, I might even be able to face-down the RWS shims, only need to go .18mm on each.

    Okay, new theme; I need motivation I've seen a lot of photos of pretty ASR-5s posing in living rooms and garages, back yards etc, details of parts...
    Let's see some in context; in their element, doing what they do best...
    Here are some of mine from last fall, from an enduro and a trip to AZ:

    Could say the exact stack height for heatube plus headset for a medium asr 5? It looks like all the models use external headsets. I'm keeping my eye out for a medium frame, but now I'm thinking my fork's steer tube will be too short which would jam up my plans.

    thanks

    Well, already bumped the thread once. Its been a while since this conversation, but I would love to know how you felt about the 13 fuel ex.

    These are the two bikes I'm considering. 5'10" and currently on a M devinci dexter, which is bad ass and fun; however, my fork is a marz 44 rc3 ti (the 140mm version) and I'd like to get a frame to suit that fork rather than find a shorter fork to fit that frame. My build is a lot more trail than XC, anyways.

    I'll measure when I get home. Mine's set up with a combo of parts for the headset to keep the stack height as short as possible (Lefty PBR130). However, it's also a straight 1 1/8" steerer. Is your's tapered?

    I have a straight HT. If you have a tape measure handy I'd appreciate it, but at the moment I'm leaning towards a fuel ex mainly since the suspension layout is fairly similar to my current bike. So I shouldnt be surprised by a different feel. So no need to go to any trouble if its not right there at arms reach. Thank you!
