    ASR-7 Build Thread

    Okay, I guess I'll start. Post your Seven builds.

    XO rear der., and Twist Shifters, XT cranks, e-13 DRS
    Juicy 7 brakes, Gravity Dropper seat post,
    Hope Pro II with ZTR Flow

    For suspension, I have different XC and DH configurations.
    For DH I use a Vivid 5.1 and a Totem Solo Air.
    For XC I use a Monarch 4.1 and a Lyrik Solo Air (modified for 176 mm travel)
    With the Kenda tires I'm using the XC build comes in at 28.9 lbs. I haven't weighed the DH config.

    How do you modify a fork to get almost 20mm more travel then intended??

    That's a sweet build though... insanely light for 7'' travel.
    Speed has never killed anybody. Suddenly becoming stationary... that's what gets you.

    I actually tried to get more travel initially, but didn't think about the too-short rebound damper rod. I posted the mods on the Shocks and Suspension forum. There are still some questions about durability, but I'm pretty optimistic at this point.

    BTW, the weight I posted was with a Thompson seat post. I think the GD adds about half a pound.

    Best brakes I've ever had. I ran than for 6 months on my 575 and put 'em on the 7.

    No issues installing the Hammerschmidt. I called Yeti and asked them about it---while they wouldn't come out and say anything officially they alluded that you could just bolt on the Hammerschmidt and avoid any of the cutting the hammerschmidt manual talks about. The BB and ISCG tabs are already faced and aligned. I did need to use the spacers that came with the kit but not biggie.

    The shifting is unreal. Can't wait to test it on some real stuff.

    Wow, these 7s look so serious. I'd love to know how they perform with the RP23.
    I am not a weight winnie but in summer time I like my bikes light. It's getting so dusty and hot (and I'm not getting younger eighther) here that it's just not that fun to peddal up hill. After retreating to my HT during the summer, I find my 575.............................heavy?.

    I was pretty unhappy with the RP23, since it seemed to bottom out very easily, even when I used less sag than recommended. I switched to the Vivid which I liked very much, but caught the weight weenie bug and switched again to a Monarch. The Monarch is "okay", but it still bottoms out pretty easy - not as easy as the RP23, though.

    I started thinking I might pickup another RP23 (I had already sold mine) and get it Pushed. I sent them an email asking what they could do for me, and here is the response:

    The biggest problem with running the air shocks on the longer travel bikes is the fact that Fox only offers those shocks with the high volume air sleeves. These air sleeves are the source of your problems causing the need to run excessive air pressure and they bottom out too easily. I would hang on to the Monarch because we will be tuning those shortly and offering air volume reducer kits at the same time. We do not have any ETA right now but it will be soon as we are riding the prototype Monarchs currently and as soon as it is available it will be up on our web site.
    So now I check the Push site at least once a day...

    Yes, even the early 7's had the 2010 shock. Admittedly I didn't give it much of a chance. I rode it around the house and hopped off a few curbs. When it bottomed out I added more air and repeated. It still bottomed out. Since I had a Vivid available I swapped them and sold the RP23.

    Great bike

    Fabricio - what it's your height and your standover ?

    I also would like buy this bike, but I think I'm to small. My height is 176cm and my standover is 74cm (29in)

    I posted it here. Basically, I made a shorter base plate for the air side of the fork. I tried to get the full 7" (178mm), but the rebound damper shaft was too short and made a horrible racket when the fork topped out.

    I use the air for XC and coil for FR and DH. I should really just stick with the coil shock. It is so much smoother, and never bottoms out. I think tiggs got his Vivid Pushed, and liked it even more. I was thinking about doing the same, but someone at Push replied to my email saying they were almost ready to Push the Monarch and I should wait. That was several months ago, though.

    I bottom out the Monarch regularly on XC trails. It's way stiffer than the RP23, though, and more than a pound lighter than the Vivid. It handles small bumps pretty well considering I keep the sag at about 10%. It has a certain range, say, when riding down stairs, that will shake your fillings out if you take it at speed.

    Except for the weight there's nothing about the Vivid I don't like. I swapped the DHX coil for a Vivid on my ASX and liked it so much I started with the Vivid when I got the 7. The RP23 lasted just long enough for a test ride around the house.

    About the shock, they offer a Fox RP23 BV or DHX RC4....Interesting ..??
    We ask for the total weight of the bike ....
    I see 67 saddle tube is a position very near to DH.No seems little comfortable to pedaling on AM use.Make routes of 20-25 miles without pain in the kidneys.
    I change my Nomad (71 in saddle tube) and I will not commit great mistake...
    I understand that the geometry is different but if the Seven moto is capable vs the Nomad 2007 for All Mountain use.
    Thank you.

    I didn't like the RP23 BV at all. I haven't tried the DHX RC4, but I've heard it's a nice shock.

    With the Monarch and light tires the bike sits at about 29lbs. I think the Vivid is a little more than a pound extra. I usually run 2.5 or 2.7 DH tires, though, when I run the Vivid, which adds 3-5 lbs.

    I haven't ridden the Nomad except for a few parking lot test rides. I can't compare them. I do go on 20+ mile rides with guys on hard tails and XC FS bikes. No one has to wait for me.

    After another awesome ride on my seven, I can report that it is very stable in the air.

    well I jus used the rear Goodridge brake line and cut it to the XT size from the stock brakes, the line doesn't need to be too long, it go very tight to the frame, I'm out of my country now, when I arrive I can send you a mail with the two sizes if you doesn't have the information yet.

    I get the impression that lately the ABQ riders have left the tough PHX group behind (hopefully we will get some videos and shots from AZ now )

    Ray, I made the stickers, I'm not a fan of the overly simplistic style of the 7 graphics so I added a bit too them, they are overlaminated with a texture to look like the ano frame aswell.

    Tim, HOPE seat pin is a test item, they made a few to run them for a few months before production starts, this is one that was on the EUROBIKE stand, I have to ride it for a bit and give real world feedback. I can tell you that the wait - which has been an ETERNITY! - will be worth it as the seat post is really good and really light & tough too. The tube is made of a special alloy with various other elements to give it strength.

    Thanks for the feedback on my ride so far...

    RACEPACE, that's the nicest AS7 I've seen to date. Nice updates to the graphics and I love the black/blue/white color scheme.

    as far as I know HOPE only made 2 sets of top caps, it was something that they looked at doing not just for YETIs but for other brands but no one seemed to be bothered about them so it never took off.

    The runs of these need to be in the hundreds to make it worth while stopping what they need to be making to keep up with orders they have already, so you can see why they are reluctant...

    HOPE do a really cool adapter to mount SRAM X* and Shimano SLX-XTR shifters direct onto the TECH lever assembly...

    The one shown in this image is the SRAM version...

    Mine with the DHX air goes up technical stuff better than a 575 with an Pushed RP 23, has alot more grip and compliance to get up un-even ground. Also the longer wheel base helps keep the front down. On a long less technical ascent the 575 is better due to the more effective PP circuit and the lower weight. I guess you need to be very clear about what sort of stuff you ride.

    Both bikes have a huge grin factor though just in different ways... not sure I can choose a favourite.

    big guy on 7

    Hi Yeti

    At 6.5 and 250lbs (110kgs) l need my bikes too be big, stiff and l need larger forks to handle my heft. I dont drop anything bigger than 4 foot (at the moment) but like to jump everything in sight. Owned an 07 575 which was too flexy and could not handle 160mm forks. I currently ride a Spot with CCDB and 36er (06 model - 150mm).

    Why isnt Yeti doing an Extra Large size Seven. I have a full build ready to go but feel the Large is too small.

    Any thoughts gang.

    Well I see that they list X-Large in the sizing, but not in the geometry. I'm wondering if they XL is an option?

    Cool, I was just wondering, I am going to be testing with a RS Lyric Solo Air 170 and a Marzocchi 55 RC3 Ti (coil 160) on my ASR 7, and in addition I have a chance to try either the new 2011 TALAS 160 or 180. The 180 can be lowered to 140. I have only ridden the ASR 7 with the 2010 TALAS 160.

    I've got a Totem 180mm on mine and I love it. I noticed that Fox is releasing a 180mm 36 but it still doesn't have a lock-out like the Totem. I'd love to try the Fox product, but, I need the lock-out for the amount of climbing I do on my 7.

    Any Seattle Area ASR 7 Owners?

    ASR 7 is on my short list. Anyone know of a LBS with 7s in stock? I'm 5'-11" looking at Med. or Lg. Or any chance for a parking lot standover test? SO is 32" on both, but there's always top-tube lenght to consider. Post a reply or send a PM.

    So you don''t think I'm a total loon I'm active trail-builder with moderate riding and digging skills. With proper meds I function normally most days.

    Peace

    HELP PLEASE!!

    hi guys

    need to get my 7 ready for the mega. Trying to fit a DRS 05 iscg (does seem correct one for frame??) but does not align on tabs. Friend said he can fit it but needs to cut several bits off, the bit that has the 2 holes near the mech mount and the lower part with the pulley which will touch the back part unless trimmed away.

    is it necessary to do this to get it to fit? any advice appreciated.

    I do have dual saints on and I was told that this is the correct kit for it.

    hi

    do mean cut the top part off thats near the mech (cant bolt through mech since tabs not aligned correctly) and also cut a bit off bottom so fits around chainstays?

    do you have a pic of this so I can see what I'm supposed to do - I just dont want to mess it up?

    thanks,

    Hi MM111:

    I think you have this http://www.e13components.com/product_drs.html, I have this http://www.e13components.com/product_ds.html, I just removed a part of metal on top where the pulley is fixed, that part of material doesn't allow me to move completely the chainguide to match the best angle. Just removed like 1/4" (6mm) of the top part of the "leg". I think that maybe you will have a problem with the E-type fixing holes of the same piece. I haven't my bike here, I'm far from home and ride just on weekends :s . My recommendation if you have enough time, request the piece that I have and cut the part that I told you. If time is an issue, remove it from the piece that you already have.

    Hope this help you at least.

    A couple of questions for my fellow 7 owners......


    1. For those of you with 180mm forks---how does it climb? Have you ridden yours at 160mm?


    2. For those of you running a coil.....how does it compare to an rp23? What are the good and bad about coil vs. air? I imagine a coil weighs more but what about the ride?

    Sorry to hear about your frame . Now i'm a bit worried about mine ...

    About the questions :

    1. I run a BOS N'Dee , at last the bike feels completely balanced and still climbs great . I came from a 2010 36 Float FIT that i hated . Try it and you won't look back , i'm sure

    2. i plan to run a DHX 5 coil soon , i'll let you know ...

    Let us know how the warranty went .

    thanks Fabricio

    My friend finally managed to fit it after cutting off the top bit and the bottom plastic bit and then grinding down the bolts 0.25 mm - fit's like a dream now

    I've got 180mm Totems on my 7 and the lock-out is essential for smooth, out of the saddle climbing. I'd spew if I had to climb for any decent amount of time with an active 180mm under me!

    I thought i'd post my most recent pic of my 7 in its current incarnation.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/29406090@N08/4708440304/" title="29476_400336956989_532201989_4967582_964475 _n by Wembley Cycles, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4071/4708440304_2f0b952111.jpg" width="375" height="500" alt="29476_400336956989_532201989_4967582_964475_n " /></a>

    The only changes since I first posted are red pro-taper bars and a Joplin remote seatpost. I love this bike, next update is a tubeless conversion.

    Today I got to demo a 7 and really like it, so much it got me thinking. I currently have 2 bikes, an Enduro SL and a Vp Free. I don't really do much DH like I thought I would, so the thought of a slightly burlier bike to replace both of mine is tempting. If I did, I would prob have both an air and coil, and 2 wheelsets.
    Couple ?'s

    1: Anyone with a 2011 Fox Talas? I think this would be a great choice for a do-it-all bike. Run it at 180mm for FR/Light DH, 140mm for XC (my exercise rides).

    2: Could a 1/4 shorter coil shock be run on this bike? I do this with my Free and it slackens the HA and drop the BB slightly (would that lower the BB too much?). Or, how does a coil running more sag effect the bike on the steeps?

    3: Can the bike even handle light DH duty? I wish it was a tad bit lower bike, prob help on the fast steep descents.

    Overall I was super impressed with the bike. I thought my S-Works Enduro SL was sweet until I rode the 7!!! I wish it had multiple shock mounts though like my Enduro does. The adjustability is super nice.

    Took mine to Highland a couple weeks ago and only twice did I ever wish I had a full DH rig. And those times were probably due to me not being comfortable with the trail more than actually needing a big bike. The bike rips DH, don't worry about it.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    yeah I'm guessing with some heavier wheels/tires and coil it would do pretty good. Just wish the HA was adjustable via multiple shock mounting holes. It's amazing how 1deg of HA can totally change a bike!
    I was out riding my S-Works Enduro today and all I could think about was my hour long demo of the ASR-7. Is that sad or what
