    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!

    Heres mine.

    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...

    Yup... the fork is 9mm, QR15 is a bit of a hassle... and i want to use them red Hope skewers.. This is the new 2011 model with Kashima coating. I got a really good price for the wheels since I'm a regular spender in my LBS... will pm you about it.

    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.
