    Good job! "props": to University Cycles in Austin TX

    For spending a protracted time with a future Yeti rider, but who could not do the transaction with them (I told them early on).

    Spent a fair time talking about the SB-66 and SB-95 and getting sizing and other advice, and sharing some general knowledge of what's up with them, et. al..

    Very very cool, super appreciated.

    Thanks gents. ;^)

    I'm pretty sure it was Mark who I spent most of my time with (larger guy), but I'm horrid with names. ;^(

    They are good people, I went there to test ride the SB66, ASR-5 and the ASR-7. Mark and Justin were great, very helpful and generous with the test rides and getting the bikes setup. I did end up walking out of there with an ASR-7. I would recommend them to anyone in the area.

    Good people indeed. And they are one of the old-Austin shops.

    +1. Mark is a great guy and really knows the Yeti brand. All the staff are good, and the service is second to none here in Austin.

    Do they rent Yetis? I come down from time to time and usually rent from the shop close to Barton Creek, think it's Bicycle Sport Shop.
    What, me hurry?

    Was a good time out at Walnut yesterday Yeti Demo Day, got my new wish list together. Now just have to find a way to fund it.

    Thanks to Brian and The University Cycles crew.

    Wow, they had an ASR-7 still in stock? Don't know why Yeti discontinued it. Great FR/light DH bike.

    Stopped in today, picked up a T-shirt, and saw that their new Demo Fleet will be SB-95's with the RS fork. Just an FYI for anyone in the area that may want to demo one.
