    Full Suspension XC Race 29er from Yeti?

    Maybe I'm out of the loop, but it seems to me at least that there is but one open gap in Yeti's line-up. Does anyone know if Yeti has something in the works to replace the venerable AS-Rlc of yore? Maybe a short-travel full suspension XC race 29er of sorts? Thank you

    real men race hard tails...



    seriously though, I'd like to see something to compete/beat a Specialized Epic, Trek Superfly, etc.

    FWIW, I race the sh!t outta my SB-95. Not light, but it's fast here in CTX.

    Hey Slim, I'm with ya on this one. I'd love to see a 29er racer 4" bike from Yeti. Currently have a Scalpel Ultimate for that duty, which ain't too shabby for racing. Have a hard tail for short XC and a first gen Big top SS for smooth courses.

    yeah slim , I am looking for a 100ml dually XC race bike at present as the back is getting pretty trashed on the HT, esp after a few weeekends in a row of racing. what else is around? have been looking at the turner online but can't source a test ride.

    I'm just wondering what happened to all the people who used to race their 26" AS-Rs. By now, one would imagine that they've moved onto bigger things, literally.

    Been thinking about this too. The Turner Czar looks really nice with geo etc. I like a bike that can do it all - trail ride, stage races, 50 milers, xc race (mid pack racer). Right now I use my 5C for this - and it does a great job. I'm thinking the SB95C will probably be a bit too much bike for my needs. Would like to see another option from Yeti.

    I went with a cannondale f29 before I knew about the arcC! It's been a lot of fun going to a hardtail and my blown out spinal disc seems to be coping and maybe even getting better?!?!? My ASR-C is repaired and in great working order but I haven't needed to give my back a rest yet...

    Chunky - good looking out. I'll have to check into this Czar you speak of
    Sasquatch - in a perfect world, we'd all have an ArcC in our stable. Glad everything is working out for you, though :-)

    I've been thinking about this a lot as well. I love my ASR5c. I ride and race the snot out of it. I have raced on short technical course, 40 milers, 6+ hour courses... it is a great bike. I would love to see a similar handling/feeling bike from Yeti with bigger wheels. I already have approval from the wife to purchase it once Yeti makes one.
