    Tires

    With silly tires like the 310's or Crows, mine will be in the 20.5 lb range. I typically run something with traction that won't slice instead, so I race it in the high 21's.

    Build

    I ride the bike in many trims depending on what I am doing with it (Endurance, XC, fun). The light setup is around 20.5 with my computer, bottle cage, chainstay protector (ready to ride!):

    Frame = '08 ASR_SLC (golden made) M (4.81lb)
    Fork = '08 SID Team with pushlock
    Wheels = Stans ZTR RACE (1207g) (I also have Olympics/240/revo's (1355g) and 355/240/supercomp's (1540g) for training)
    Headset = King (changing to CB Cobalt soon)
    Rotors = Stans alum 160 front, 140 rear (I also run the hope floating rotors if it's gonna be wet and for training)
    Crank = XTR 970
    Cassette = XTR970
    Shifters = XTR 970 Triggers (ti bolts)
    Brakes = Juicy Ultimates (ti bolts)
    Der's = XTR 970
    Seat = Spec toupe for XC, Phenom for endurance
    Post = Syntace P6 (chopped to length)
    Stem = Ritchey WCS 4-AXIS (ti bolts)
    Bars = Syntace Vector Low Riser Carbon
    Grips = Titec Pork Rinds or Ritchey WCS Foam
    Skewers = DTSwiss Ratchet TI
    Cage = Torelli Carbon
    Computer = VDO 1.0+ wireless
    Pedals = Eggbeater 4-Ti

    Photo show the bike as I train on it (355 wheels, hope rotors, heavy tubeless rubber, 1-ti pedals, seatbag)

    Sweet build. Just curious, you say that your '08 ASR_SLC is made in Golden. Your frame looks different than the 08's shown on Yeti's site. They only show an ASR in Turq/Black/White, and the Yeti lettering is on the side of the downtube. Am I missing something? And what is the "SLC" ? I don't see an ASR SL listed on Yeti's site.

    Yeti took the last remaining golden made frames and painted them with a special color scheme. Basically they just took the scheme of my '07 (below) and put white instead of the brushed aluminum.

    The SLC refers to the full carbon rear end. If you look at the red bike above, you will see that in '06 the chainstays were carbon, but the seatstays were aluminum with the carbon plug. Going from the SL to the SLC shaved around 100g and made the rear end stiffer and more active, as the stay flexes better than the carbon plug did on it's own.
    For '08 they dropped the 'c" in asr-slc to avoid confusion with the ASR-C. Really they are all ASR-SLC's now as it's the same stay on both the alloy and carbon version. The cabon dogbone is the only suspension change on the ASR-C. It adds another level of stiffness to the rear end.(I had and ASR-C for half of the season)

    I'm the purveyor of worthless knowledge when it comes to ASR-Sl's...

    Do you not have a carbon frame anymore??
    If not, what did you not like about it?

    Long sorted tale...

    It was just an economic decision. I got the white ASR frame in the spring thinking my ASR-C frame wouldn't show up. I was lucky and ended up gettting bike #20... in Feb/March. When my job went to heck in the middle of the summer and I lost alot of pay, I sold the ASR-C and just raced an ARC for a while (I won the ARC in a raffle) . After realizing (for the second time) that a HT wasn't the ticket for me. I swapped everything over to the ASR-SLC frame and rode it for my endurance races in the fall.

    Overall, I am perfectly happy with the Alloy, and don't intend to go back to a carbon. The carbon was a better XC race bike, but I am going to be doing more ultra endurance racing from here on out. The alloy bike is less punishing on my body and is more durable/easliy replacable if I crash it in the middle of nowhere. My ego will survive not having the bigger/better/fastest/newer for now.
