    Thanks, Seth (Yeti's customer service kicks ass)

    Last August I was forced to retire my ASX because of a crack between the bottom bracket and the seat tube. It was a 2002 and the warranty had expired. Anyway, Seth hooked me with their crash replacement program and I ended up with this 575 w/ carbon swingarm, ti bolt kit, and a dhx air.

    and thanks to Larry @ Mountain High Cyclery for the killer deal on the components:







    wheels : chris king/mavix 823 ex rims/front-2.4 advantage/rear-2.35 minion dhf
    brakes : juicy 7/8 inch rotors/goodridge hoses/galfer pads
    drivetrain : 2007 xt/truvatuv stylo carbon cranks
    fork : 2007 fox 32 talas rlc
    other : truvatuv holzfeller stem, team riser bar, team carbon double clamp seatpost, chris king headset, and garmin edge 305 gps.

    Great looking bike. I recently had some correspondence with Seth myself, and I agree, he's a pretty cool guy and in my opinion he makes Yeti seem like a very cool company (well, among many other things too i suppose).

    Very sweet build!

    Just a question .. you are running a 8" rotor in the rear and 7" in the front? if so, any particular reason for that?

    Thanks, Crisillo.

    I meant for the brakes to read JUICY SEVENS w/ 8 inch rotors. I pulled them from my ASX. It might be overkill for this bike, but I can't justify spending the money to go to 7 inch rotors & adaptors for the pinner weight loss. As you can see from the build, I sacraficed weight for more beef. Although it's not intended for it, I huck this thing.

    How much clearance is there between your 2.35 and the carbon stays? Apparantly, you don't want to let a muddy tire start scoring the carbon.

    Don't want to make you nervous, just wondering. Gotta pic of it from above?

    Nice, that's about how I'd want to build a 575...definitely on the burly side. One of these days that bike may have to replace my trusty FXR.
