    yeti 4x

    i am thinking about building up an yeti 4x and i was wondering if i could run a front dearailer and how thing would do on climbs? i know it wont be like a dedicated crosscountry bike but still i would like to do a little climbing

    just get a 575, the 4x geometry really wont feel good on anything but a 4x course, thats all its really designed for, something with long swoopy berms, nice doubles etc. The 575 would probaby be a better choice if u arent to serious about racing but just want a fun, beat around bike.

    you'd need to come up with a hell of a seatpost. I've never taken a pedal stroke on my 4X sitting down. I suppose anything is possible, but the enduro kit 575 would probably kill it going uphill. just my 2 cents. scott

    Not to take anything away from Yeti. We lov'em at Go-ride. However if you want a Pro level 4X bike that can also be ridden XC then consider the Ventana X5. It is the bike our Pro team is racing and I have one myself. You can get the X5 with a 4" travel link that lowers BB height and slackens the HA. This bike already has cable stops for a front drlr and makes a great XC bike. You could even order an additional 5" link to make a great off-season trail bike.

    Here's a pic of mine.
