I have never ridden a Yeti, but had seen a few on the trails, and admired them in various Passionite posts here on MTBR.
I was at a LBS yesterday, and they had a 575 frame hanging there.
I took it down, and was truly blown away by the build detail and quality of this frame. This coming from an owner of 3 Ventanas. Simply beautiful in person...photos do not do it justice.
The complexity of the tubing, and construction quality are a testament to what Taiwan can do for your money now a days. All this in a package that is $700-800 Iess than a comparable Ventana frame.
I fear for American frame manufacturers.
I hope they ride half as good as they appear to be designed and constructed.
I also hope they put out a 29'er soon.
