    New 2011 575 owner thanks to Huck & Roll

    Well when i saw the deal on the 2011 575's Huck & Roll was offering up I simply could not pass it up. SO needless to say I am really stoked and cannot wait for it to show up at the front door. I do have a few questions for current owners if anyone can help.

    First sizing.. I have always ridden a large frame on my prior bikes (Ellsworth Epiphany, Maverick ML8, Maverick Matic) but when I compared the top tube length of my current fav a large ML8 which has a TT that is 24.09" which fits perfect. The medium Yeti 575 has a TT length of 23.8" and since I am 5'10.5" according to the sizing chart I went with a medium. Anybody out there my height and ride a medium or large? Just curious what your thoughts are.

    I guess the other question which will not be answered until it arrives and I get some miles in is how will it compare to the ML8 with the DUC32 up front. They are real close in travel and weight so I suspect it is a fair comparison. I have a much higher end build kit on the ML8 but like all things with bikes they are 4 years old so the newer technology might wash that out or come close to it. Anybody out there have seat time on the 575 and the ML8? Just curious as to your thoughts.

    I was not planning to be a yeti owner at this time even though I have always been a fan based on what I knew about the brand. But when the opportunity to do so at an incredible price you got jump before the deal sells out.

    thanks for any feedback

    Scott

    If you go to Yeti's website they give you a height range as a rough gauge for proper sizing. I'm 5'6" and the small is perfect.

    Yea that is why I went with the medium and if I compare it to the LG ML8 I have it is actually very close on most measurements and the LG is farther off on the bigger side. I think I will be fine and honestly I maybe needed to be on a medium on my other frames I have always ridden a large so that is what I ordered.

    I guess as long as I have enough room TT wise the rest can be adjusted out without hurting the ride or stability. However if I had to put a longer than normal stem on the bike it would most likely screw up the handling.

    I guess if it is too small I can exchange it for a large

    How big of an upgrade is the kashima shock? It seems strange its on the Enduro build and not Race.

Upon opening same, I was pleasantly surprised... Kashima shocks front and rear... This is "one seriously cool" looking mountain bike !!! Showed it to some of my Mtn biking friends... There response was... WOW !!! : > D

    I was told it was because thees Enduros were built later in the year and all the fox suspension now comes with the kashima.

    Is it just me or does the bike feel pretty heavy? I guess I am coming from a xc bike but still I don't remember the Sb66 feeling this much even though that was the race build. By the way tomorrow morning can't come soon enough! I also got a Reverb to put on!

    The lady I was chatting with insisted that it's kashima coated and that's how they are shipping it, shock is regular rp23, fork should have the kashima coat. Oh well I'm happy with bike time to get it dirty

    FWIW, you didn't. You did however get a steal of a deal and should be very happy with your new bike.

    Those who are not getting the coating that they didn't expect are getting the same bike many here paid 33% more for, I hope that doesn't suc, sounds kind of whiny.

    Uhhh...better tech can make you a better rider. If not, racers would be riding 10 year old stuff instead of the latest stuff (and so would we).

    Kashima coating is the latest thing and does make the fork and shock more compliant on the smaller bumps. If you can get Kashima on these screaming-good-deal 575s, good for you. I'd want it too - deal or no deal.

    LOL.

    A deal is only a deal IF you got what you agreed to buy.

    Getting a lesser-than-expected product for the same price is simply not acceptable to most - that would be called a "bait & switch," regardless of what your perception of a "deal" is, you still got duped.

    That being said, HNR is a kick ass company and I am betting that if you get on the horn/email with them, you'll be taken care of.
