    The ASR 5 build/picture thread

    It was called to my attention that the index was missing a link to the ASR 5 thread, so here it is

    most of the asr-5 is actually in another thread. Would be great if mods can combine them!

    Haha... i guess Yeti is "trying" to mix and match the colors? no? Could be cost as well since the rear triangle is naked carbon with a clear coat.

    Can't comment on the wheels yet as they haven't hit the trails yet but on initial test within the city, it holds up well to curb side jumps and such. The weight is pretty light, 1480gr... of course they are pure XC wheels but i don't ride any heavy stuff over here... just trail riding with some light AM. Competitive cyclist tried them on heavier stuff and it held up... i guess if it works for them... should work for me too. I couldn't find the max. tire size reference in their manual.... maybe there isn't one? There's only user's own weight limitations though... price? Cost quite a few penny...

    I don't have any close up shots of the hoses but the brakes, yes... here ya' go:

    So how about those Hopes? Do they go squeak, squeak, squeak, every time you try to slow down?

    I love Hope brakes and I've been running them for years. The modulation and stopping power are top notch, but I did experience some fade (once) while descending the upper part of the Ribbon in Grand Junction. I have a newer set of Tech M4's (at least I think that's what they're called) and they squeak some too, but not as bad as my older M4's. I am considering a new build and am on the fence between Hopes and Formulas. What say you?

    Any thoughts on sizing on these? Alloy model mainly. In just looking at the numbers, I'd come in on an XS on this bike.
    Comparable to most other mfr's size Small offerings.
    True for a lot of you to size DOWN when you purchased?

    My wife is 5' 3" and a small fits her perfectly. I am 5' 11" and I ride a med which is a tad small but that's what I always ride.

    Oh...and I changed mine to a 1x9 recently. It is now a little under 24.5lbs.

    Donnacha - sweet build!

    http://forums.mtbr.com/attachment.ph...1&d=1311657249

    Are you running the fork at 130mm and if so how do you like it? Which white cables did you use with the XTR shifters and brakes? How do you like the 180mm rear rotor?

    Hopes don't normally squeak like that unless the pads are infected. I had some infected pads that squeaked for a bunch of rides then they wore in and the noise went away.

    That Upper Ribbon kills almost all brakes. Keep in mind that trail is not your normal XC fare. It's more of a DH feature that requires DH level brakes to keep the fade away. We had a crew of 13 when we went down and the only brakes that really held up were my buddy's V2's. So the Formula's would probably handle that feature better than the Hopes. I found the Forumula's to have an all or nothing feel and are very grabby. I also don't like how close to the bar it takes for the brakes to activate. But each to their own.

    Thanks for putting the photo up Shane!
    The brake hoses are Shimano Yumeya anf the gear cables are Gore-Tex Ride-On.
    I'm currently running 160mm rear rotor and 180mm front - the rear braking isn't great at the minute but I think this is because the pads got contaminated during the build. New pads are on the way.

    Great. Thanks. Are you running the fork at 140mm or did you lower it to 130mm and how are you liking it?

    It's actually the 150mm fork reduced to 130mm - the shop couldn't get hold of the 140 model.
    130mm seems ideal for me (although I'll be removing all the spacers under the stem) and it is what the UK importers recommend. I still need to tweak the compression dampening a bit but my biggest issue is the brakes are not sorted yet.
    My overall impression is how fast the bike is; I think it is a combination of the suspension, light weight and Chris King hubs.

    OK We need more asr 5 pictures.

    I am in the process of rebuilding mine. Slightly chunkier wheels as i found the alpines a little wanting from time to time (not really that often). Still will keep under 10.5kgs though! maybe a reverb post eventually when they fix all the issues or maybe a fox doss?

    Great looking bike! How are those wheels working for you? I'm looking at some American Classics for next year.

    Cool thanks,

    I've had this set of wheels for a year now and love them. They more XC orientated, than All mountain but I've hammered them pretty hard and they have stood up to the punishment.
    They light, stiff and look great.

    See my Yeti ASR-5a in slate grey

    Been running this baby for the last 9 months and still loving every minute of the ride. Check it out:

    - Stans ZTR Alphine rim with HopePro II hubs and Kenda Nevegal tubeless 1.9 front - 2.1 rear
    - Chris King threadless headset
    - Thomson x4 stem 80mm
    - Shimano 2011 Deore XT Groupset with XT brake

    - 2012 Rock Shox Reverb Seat Post (just got it less than a month)
    - in photo, it is still in Thomson Elite Seat Post

    Total weight= 26lbs
    $$ to build = US$4500 every penny well spent :-)

    My stock Sram XO ASR5c (large, 25.6 lbs) doesn't belong on the same page as some of these builds, but here it is:



    Will probably add some weight to it. RockShox Reverb post and Chris King/Stans wheelset (15mm front/12x142 rear).

    Nice! I'm assuming this is the Competitive Cyclist XO build. I just ordered the same bike in XL, can't beat that deal.

    One more question, you are on a large. I'm usually an XL on bikes at 6'2 with a 35 inch inseam but these things seem to have pretty large top tubes. How tall are you?

    ARG can't wait. I ordered my ASR -5 allow last week from my LBS. Should arrive today for them to build up. Hoping to have it by this weekend! I got the 2012 frame, Tercouse (sp) with the Enduro build. LBS was great, they got them to ship the 2012 frame with the 2011 through axle in the front instead of the QR.

    Thanks, ordered the XL from competitive cyclist. Now just waiting for their backed up arses to ship the dang thing. They had Formula "The One" brakes on sale so I swapped out the XO's. Will post pics when it arrives.

    My 2012 ASR 5 Alloy Enduro did come into my LBS yesterday. They let me come in and unpack the box. It was like Christmas!

    Super happy with the frame color:

    They cut the color selections down to blue, seen in my pic, black, anon black and white. The bike is at my LBS, I will get a pic of the graphic when I can. The price was the same as listed on the web, MSRP $3200 for the Enduro build.

    Sorry I didn't see this before. I'm 6'1 and using a 90mm stem on the Large. Coming from my 29er, I specifically wanted something a bit more compact feeling. Very happy with the fit.
    Very interesting, we're in the same boat. I ditched an XL Niner RIP 9 because it was just too much bike, hard to flick around. I hope I end up happy as well, I ended up going with a large too.

    In an effort to find a video review of the ASR 5 I came upon this one showing start to finish a complete build up of an ASR 5. It is sped up and edited. I found it interesting, since I really don't know what goes into building up a bike.

    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?

    That must be the bottom of Methusalah :-)
