    Your bike can take you anywhere, anytime, over any terrain but, you have to force it to GK 2004. BB1, who started it?

    Hey, Minkhiller. That is a beauty of a Yeti. Is that orange? Is that a special order color for 2004? I didn't see it listed as an option this year.

    It is the red that Yeti has had for a while. I ordered the 2004 frame in Nov. before they had the new colors listed. Yeti told me that there are a few red frames available for 2004. They also have a red/polished frame that can be special ordered.

    That is NICE. Very sweet rig. Similar at least in color scheme to my AS-R, eh? Vader style. I'm also rockin' a DH9 and I have a 4X on the way. Straight up.

    my race bike - '05 ASR sl

    This bike rides VERY well. The most impressive aspects of the frame is the stiffness (irregardless of the fact it weighs 5.38lb), braking and handling. The bump absorption is very good for medium and big hits, but not quite like my Blur for the small stuff. I am having to adjust my race style a bit to accomodate the incredible, road-bike like out of the saddle sprinting ability of this bike. The front and rear are incredibly stable under power. I've raced it twice and I think I'm finishing a bit better than my training would indicated. This bike is very fast, but as I learn to sprint better I think it will really help me. I spec'd about a 23lb build, but have not yet bought the wheels - likely AmClassic MTB 350. As is weight is likely right at 24lb. Here are a few highlights of the parts list:

    -Wheels are DT 4.1d rims on WTB laser disc; the front spokes are a bit heavy duty because I value steering precision
    -Noleen MegaAir fork
    -Stansified Marta brakes (Al rotor on rear only)
    -Dura-Ace rear der. and 12-27 cassette, KMC 10 speed chain
    -Turbine LP cranks with 20/30/42 rings

    Good job! My first Yeti

    Well firstly im gonna start by saying a BIG thank you to Howard and Damian from Bromley Bikes who helped get this Beauty up and running.
    I have been out of the Mountain bike scene for a number of years but remember the times when John Tomac rode a Yeti, Missy Giove rode a Cannondale and Ned Overend rode a Stumpy, I had their posters on my bedroom wall. Anyway, I had always dreamt of owning a Yeti but knew I couldnt afford one or even knew where to get one from. Then, a month or so ago I decided to get myself a "Dream" mountain bike and to my surprise found out that Yeti's were still being made and sold. (remember, I have been out of the scene for a long time).

    So a couple of phone calls to Bromley Bikes led to my "Dream Bike" being made.
    Spec includes :-
    Fox Float RP3.
    Fox F100 RLT forks.
    Carbon rear end.
    XTR hollowtech II chainset and front mech.
    Sram X.0 shifters and rear mech.
    Mavic Crossmax SL wheelset.
    XT disk brakes.
    Thompson Elite Stem and Seatpost.
    Crank Brothers Eggbeaters.
    Yeti ARC R1 carbon riser bars.
    Goodridge brake hoses.
    WTB Yeti Team saddle on order.
    Chris King headdet.

    New to the forum and Yeti! Just picked up my ASR-SL! Photos!

    I am new to this forum and Yeti cycles and I have been reading many of the posting and learning a lot about my new Yeti. This is a great forum! I am am old school mountain biker and racer back form the late 80s and my bikes have been old school as well. I thought it was about time for me to get up to date so after a lot of looking I decided on a Yeti AS-R SL for mountain bike riding/racing. When I picked the bike up on Friday I was so happy! I told Yeti that I wanted the 05' paint and they put on what appears to to be the 06' components :

    I am posting a few photos of my bike. The bike is too clean now and I can't wait to get some dirt on it!

    Smooth ASR. I just bought the same Tacx Tao bottle cage but haven't put it on yet. I'm glad I bought it, it looks great on your Yeti. 37 grams for the cage!!!

    I don't get it........I see several very setups to mine that people are claiming weigh around 25-26 pounds.

    My bike weighed about 27lbs at the shop, and I don't really have heavy parts.
    I'm not totally sure about my fork...........Duke Race.........it may be on the heavy side, but I need to take it off and weigh it.

    Otherwise, I have mostly XT parts, and some Mavic Crossrides.....which aren't that heavy.

    Almost 4 years later and this ride is still my main squeeze...here in New England that means durability. The only things that have changed from day one are the fork and tires. Says something for the Sram group also!

    My ASR updated

    As my photo has disappeared and I've changed the spec anyway.

    Here's mine again now with X0 twist shifters and Magura Durin forks instead of X9 triggers and Rebas

    MY 2008 ASR



    This is built up with the Yeti Australia 'Pro' Build kit. XTR, XO, Chris King, Thomson, Easton, Mavic, Maxxis, Crank Bros, Stan's, Fox Shox, Avid... All the good stuff. Just under 11kg.

    It was a pretty straight forward build, except for having to re-bleed the Avid Ultimates as one of them was leaking when i unpacked it.

    First ride tomorrow morning, Can't wait. Forecast is for heavy rain.

    Gravedoja and toydeluxe:

    I'm running an 01 ASR and I upgraded from the shock in the rear to a Fox RP23 (propedal at medium settings). I'm finding that because the original ASR was designed around a shock with little to no platform (one would assume it was dealt with by the ramp up of the linkage) that the medium damping is waaaay to harsh. Setting 3 is basically locked out, setting two is very harsh ride and setting one is unpleasant but I guess I might maybe use it for race if I was so inclined towards efficiency. (at present I run the shock with all of the propedal in the "off" setting).

    Either of you folks running a newer shock on your old frame and if so, how have you got it set up?

    FWIW, the change from the old float RL to the RP23 (even when set to propedal off) was a huge step forward.

    Obviously the 01 frame was designed around a whole different set of shock technology. Any advice?

    It was a pretty straight forward build, except for having to re-bleed the Avid Ultimates as one of them was leaking when i unpacked it.

    First ride tomorrow morning, Can't wait. Forecast is for heavy rain.
    Looks nice! I can now see what my bike would have looked like. I had the same frame color on order (also same fork, wheels, stem, seatpost, etc.). However, after being jerked around by Yeti, I cancelled my order. Every two weeks they told me "two more weeks". Finally after three months, I said forget it. They make nice frames, but have really poor customer service and shouldn't give out ETA's if they have no idea when a given frame will even arrive.

    It was a Ti hardtail, and weighed 18.7lbs. I am figuring this ought to build a light XC bike out of the Yeti frame, and be more rideable in the Maine woods. Pics will be up as soon as the frame arrives, barring issues, and I doubt there will be any, the pics are great. Anyone do a sub 20lb. ASR SL-C Team Medium? It doesn't seem impossible, and this looks to be a good place to post pics or descriptions...

    It is here!

    Well, it arrived, and other than needing a little carnauba wax and a few seconds with an orbital polisher, it was in pretty new shape. A medium ASR-SL from 2006 in Team stripes of red and silver. Build compliment is:
    Headset: Chris King NoThreadset 1-1/8" Red
    Stem: Syntace F99 90mm 1-1/8" 25.4mm
    Spacers: Chris King 1mm x 2 Red / CarbonLight 4mm
    Fork: 2007 RockShox SID WorldCup
    Wheelset: Spinergy Xyclone Race Disc
    Brakes: Hope MonoMiniPro w/ Floating Rotors Red Bore Caps and Rotors
    Levers: Hope MiniPro Red Caps and Lever Blades
    Shifters: SRAM X-0
    Front Derailleur: 2008 Shimano XTR Clamp-on
    Rear Derailleur: SRAM X-0 w/ Ceramic Pulleys and Carbon Inner Plate from RSP.
    Cable (Brake): Goodridge Stainless Braided
    Cable (Shifters): JagWire GoldMedalSterling Stainless Braid w/ PurelyCustom Red Caps
    Cable (Shock Lockout): JagWire GMSterling Braid w/ PC Red Caps
    Rear Shock: Fox RP23
    Cassette: '08 Shimano XTR
    Chain: KMC X9-SL Silver
    Seatpost: Syntace P6 400mm /27.2mm
    Clamp: Hope Non QR Red
    Saddle: Selle San Marco Monocoque Carbon Superleggera
    Grips: Oury Lock-On Black w/ Red Locking Collars
    Plugs: PurelyCustom Red Trumpet Horn End Plugs
    Tires: Conti XC Pro Kevlar or Maxxis MaxxLite310 (ride or race)
    Tubes: Maxxis FlyWeight
    Valve Caps: PurelyCustom Red
    Skewers: Hope Stainless Red
    Crankset: Adventure Components Carbon Cobra 175mm ISIS
    Pedals: Crank Brothers Eggbeater SL (I don't trust Ti pedal spindles at all)
    Bottom Bracket: Crank Brothers Cobalt Ti Ceramic ISIS 113mm-68/73mm
    Crank Bolts: SRP Ti w/ Token Red Dustcaps and PurelyCustom Bolt Plugs Red
    Other Hardware: Red and Ti Bits From PurelyCustom and TastyNuts/ProBoltUK (a Formula 1 motorcycle supplier).

    Total bike weight is 21lbs. Unfortunately my pics are kinda sad, since I had just built the bike, and wheeled it into the kitchen without having completed the drivetrain cables. I had transferred the build kit from another frame, and the cable housing was about 1" short for both derailleur cables at the rear triangle/front triangle junction bridge. No biggie. A quick call to my LBS has more JagWire Sterling GoldMedal housing on the way. It will also be nice to C-Clip the cable properly. I kinda wonder what a really light wheelset would feel like. A sub 20lb FS rig would probably feel like it is made of paper. It is already pretty crazy. I had an IBIS Szazbo which at 24lbs felt rediculously light. Going to a Ti hardtail at 18.7 was really weird. This feels perfect. Needless to say the suspension is better on this Yeti... It really is magical. It almost feels like it is doing some of the pedalling. Next pics will be taken with a camera and not my phone!

    Here's the goods:

    03 ASR-SL frame
    pushed 03 float rear shock (no lockout!)
    08 Manitou Minute MRD 20mm axle 100mm travel
    king rear hub
    hope pro 2 front hub 20mm
    stans olympic rims
    stans goo, yellow tape
    maxxis crossmark 2.10 tires
    king headset
    03 stylo team cranks
    egg beaters
    USE alien seat post
    terry fly (manganese)
    weyless 100 stem
    maxm mx-5 bars
    08 hope mini front (post mount)
    03 hope mini rear
    XT cassette
    XT derailleurs
    deore shift pods ('deleted' shift indicators)

    weight 25.01 lbs.

    I just upgraded the fork and wheels, I'm pretty psyched about that. The fork is awesome compared to my old marathon sl.

    Got the rear float pushed this year too, a big improvement there too, filters out the bob very effectively.

    I'm thinking about a few more upgrades, some research on weights and prices yields this handy table of upgrades vs their cost per gram. I can't figure out how to post a table on this forum, so here it is comma delimited. Right now the frontrunner is a new hope disc for the rear.

    upgrade, old component, grams saved, $ per gram
    xtr cassette, xt cassette, 49, 2.96
    xtr crank, stylos+race face bb, 82, 5.73
    next sl crank, stylos+race face bb, 145, 4.42
    xtr rear derailleur carbon, xt der, 65, 2.74
    ti egg beaters, regular Ebs, 119, 2.52
    ti egg beaters, my ti egg beaters, 63, 4.76
    my ti egg beaters, regular Ebs, 56, 0
    plastic water bottle bolts, steel bolts, 10 (guess), 0.05
    selle italia SLR, terry fly, 94, 1.28
    new hope disc (rear), old hope disc, 41, 1.34

    I haven't actually weighed a DT SWISS carbon shock but based on the listed weight and what others tell me it would be around 50-60g savings. Just want to make sure what size of bushings I should get before I order the shock. Or if anyone knows of a lighter alternative to a DT SWISS I would gladly hear it.

    Forgive my ignorance but what's that? Sounds interesting. What model is it? Is it lighter than the regular DT SWISS XR Carbon?

    its the
    shock that comes on the scott spark has a 3 stage tracloc lever that has lock out, 75mm, and 110mm options, when used with a spark, if it would work with a yeti, im not sure, but id like to try...........

    My 09 ASR. Current weight is 20.95lbs. I plan to change the shock and rotors to make it a bit more lighter. Sorry for the sad camphone pics.

    Does anyone have pics of the white and turquoise frame Jenson has on sale? Looks to be a 07 frame but they have it under 09.

    Feltbee,
    I purchased 2 of these ( for my girlfriend, and then me - yikes!) - they are 2008, CO-built frames - 27.2 seatpost, "8COxx(size letter - S, M, L) serial nos., top-pull FD, etc. built w/a 2009 kit. they are a sweet deal - I jumped on this when I saw the price - incredible deal. The DT wheelset is very nice - light and, so far, bombproof (I have a little over 100 miles on it - no probs). I'm also impressed w/the SLX brakes - much better than the Hayes Carbon HFX-9's on my 2005 AS-R. Weighed 24.9lbs w/out pedals when I finished assembling it.

    Sounds sweet JoJo. Yeah I guess my original posting is a little confusing asking for pics and then I post a link to Jenson's picture! What I meant was if anyone had any pics of it built up. Got any you can show of yours or your wifes?

    I don't have one right now, but Jenson's pic is accurate on their site - my guess is they built one up and took a pic. I attached it. Note the top-pull FD - a giveaway it's a 2008 Colorado frame (the 2009 taiwanese built frame went to a bottom-pull FD and 31.8 seatpost).



    The pic is exactly what I have - color, decals, components, etc. I believe the 2009 frame has a more relaxed 69 deg head tube, whereas this one's 71 deg. The bike's a gem - it's a steal at this price. I think they only have Large's left. I noticed they lowered the price another 50 bucks today to 2299. This is truly a bargain. If a large fits you, get it!

    Jenson has plenty of '09 frames left, though.

    Yeah I guess I should have checked under their full builds. What a sweet looking bike. Here's hoping that they'll have a medium frame left at tax time!

    Hey...hangon a tic....the steer angle is DIFFERENT ???

    The ASR frame that has a 27.2mm seat post vs the 30.6mmm seat post have differing head angles - 71 vs 69 respectively???

    This is somewhat interesting....I want the 69 degree head angle!!!

    Anyway of confirming this.....thanks guys....LC

    whoops - I believe (from the catalogs I downloaded) the 2008 is a 69 head angle. My older 2005 ASR-sl shows a 73 head angle.

    Stoked to finally be a part of the tribe! Here's my ASR I picked up from Jenson. It has a Fox F120 on the front. Just need to get housing and cables ran, the steerer cut down, and to set up the tires I have ordered as tubeless when the team order gets in. It should be quite the change from the Felt I've ridden the last couple years (hardtail and 80mm Dart 1). Can't wait to get it out on the dirt and to do some racing this year.

    I believe it is a 07. It's got the skinny seat tube, top pull FD, etc.

    On another note, the 07 yeti catalog says these frames have 70degree HTAs.

    I'm loving the paint as well...


    should come out to under 23lbs

    Built it for my son....22lbs 10oz

    $969 from Jenson - Thanksgiving Weekend price.

    Could change this into a 1X9, and lose a pound and get into the 21lbs range.

    highlights:

    10mm solid rear axle
    15mm QR front axle
    custom wheels from CRC, DTSwiss Rev, Sun EQ21, Hope Pro II
    Ceramic BB from Enduro - wheels will be next for the bearing treatment.

    Hey, glad you like the biuld, but I really dont have he wieghts of all the parts...sorry about that chief!

    I can list off the entire build;

    Crank bros directset
    Foam gips on the RaceFace Next Sl bar - 25.4mm with 100mm Thomson elite Stem.
    X.9 triggers with X.9 RD (mod with ceramic pulleys) XT FD
    M960 crankset, with Enduro ceramic BB, CrankBros 4Ti Eggbeater pedals.
    Elixer CR brakes, nice avid G3 160mm rotors.

    The frame is wonderful at around 4.5lbs (size small), really solid and reliable build....it could be a 20lb bike with some crazy light tires, X.0 twister, Extralite stem, bar.....but really, this bike needs to be HUGE FUN, strong and reliable....LC(thx)

    My ASR-C

    Hi,

    Here is my 2010 ASR, i havent been able to use it much because on the 4th ride I broke the derailleur hanger and its been a pain in the ass to get an other one because I live in Mexico but the frame is a work of art.
    And yes...I know I need longer hydraulic lines but is really hard to get them... I hope they get here before the derailleur hanger

    That's a sweet looking bike Jim! Love the Black/White version over the Black/Turquoise and those cobalts.
