    New to the Yeti fold...

    ...or cult And I mean that in only the nicest way!

    I have a ways to go getting it set up just right. Coming from an urban/park/street riding on 24" wheels background, gears, chain guids, front brakes, etc. take a bit of getting used to. I suppose I'll manage



    My first mtn-x race is coming up next weekend, any general set-up tips?

    And when the parts have gone I can take that frame out of your hands....

    Sorry, no tips. My favorite LBS is taking its time (doing it right) building my first Yeti (AS-X) which is also my first FS bike.

    To be clear, we think you have a pretty neat bike there. Now you should go and ride it hard.

    I think Yeti has some tips about setting up the suspension (in the manual and their website). People seem to have so different ideas about how they like their suspension. Firm vs. soft, different amounts of damping. You are going to have to experiment to see what you like.
