    Looking to demo a Yeti 575

    Anybody know where I could demo a 575 in or around Phoenix? I am trying to decide between a Trek Remedy 9, Pitch, and the 575. So far I have ridden the Remedy and it seemed like a great bike but pretty pricey.

    Check with Rage cycles, also Yeti comes around quite a bit with test fleets during certain times a year. Like mine a lot other than it weighs 35lbs right now. Needs a 3lb diet.

    Rage has a couple 575s, but none appeared to be a demo last time I was in. Awhile back DNA in Mesa had one. Fantastic bike, miss my old one.

    Yeti sucks.
    Get the Trek
    Even though they are an evil corporation that will steal your children's souls.

    Needs more of a diet than 3lbs, there are 29lb Session 88's floating around now.

    I strongly encourage you to get a hardtail.

    Just head out to any Phoenix area trail, and you're more than likely to run into somebody with a 575. My god, I can't believe how many of those I see out on the trail lately.

    Javelina Cycles carries Yeti. Not sure if they demo them, but worth at least calling or stopping by.

    You know this already - cranks, wheels, go with a polycarb bashguard as well (I have a black Saint one that would fit).

    Cranks are pretty light actually at 939g, XT's are 863g and the new Atlas is 955g.

    Crmo Saddle is heavier, but Ti is expensive.

    The wheels are bricks at over 2400g for the pair. (If they are the MTX laced to the Shimano hubs that came on the stinky)

    I'd ditch the wheels first. Something light and UST.

    True, heavy bike training is good right? Ya, I was looking at the deus cranks but definitely wheels need to go.

    The second seatpost probably doesn't help..... maybe consider just running one seatpost?

    Yeah, I guess. I like light wheels for pedaling though

    Check your PM's.

    Is it really a "demo"? When I last called they said they don't do demos but for about $75 you can "test ride" a bike from them and if you purchase...the money goes towards that.

    Not sure how long a test ride can be.

    I called DNA in Mesa and they said they don't have any Yeti demos anymore. They will let you ride a new bike in the parking lot but that is it. I think I am out of luck as far as demoing the 575 here in Phoenix.
