    New Yeti 4X

    Spotted the new Yeti 4X in Willingnen for the German World Cup.

    Really nice paintjob,

    Frames uses 575 tubing, and the production model will have different colors, frame is a pound lighter then the limited production model.

    I just spotted the one I just bought a few hours ago...

    Damn I am such a dumbass. No self control whatsoever
    I guess it will go well with the 303



    Slightly different paint job but still pretty damn cool!

    Yes It is a small production frame. I just picked it up a Go-ride at lunch time. Full on impulse buy. They had a longer one too that looked just the same.
    I weighed mine at 3135g. Really cool frame, a few ti bolts here and there.
    I cannot wait to try it. May be tomorrow if I am not to much of a slacker tonight.

    Anyone want to buy a Turner rail?

    I'm stoked! No 303 Yet, still waiting but I'm told another 2 weeks on it, but At least I got a new Yeti 4x just in time for MSC Nathrop Chalk Creek Stampede!!

    Quick question: did the mini fit right on or did you have to file the frame?
    It seems the frame is not compatible with hayes unless you do some "tuning".
    Everything else appears to fit: avids, shimano... I ordered some minis since I saw your had them but I hope you did not have to go at it with any tools!

    The Mini Bolted right on! I'm so glad I have them! Someone told me that Yeti is going to recall the 4x frames for this reason, I'm guessing they will just switch out the rear end. I don't need to, I'm good.
