Given that I can ride rather infrequently due to my health I decided that having a Scott Spark hung the garage on the off-chance of a ride was too much money just 'hanging' there.

I've sold off the Spark and replaced it with the cheaper Yeti ASR-SL. I was looking for a Santa Cruz Superlight with canti bosses, but thought the ASR would do nicely ;)

Purchased unseen as a complete bike off ebay :shock: :lol:

Plan was to build a lightweight full-susser :) It arrived with a 'solid' build spec, weighing in at about 27lb.

Stripped it down....

....and gave it a good clean and polish :) I'll be selling off all the components :wink: .....

Image
Image

Now re-built and weighing in at sub 21lbs :D .....

Image
Image
Image

Just waiting for a new mech hanger to arrive then I can get it fully sorted ;)

Spec as is...

Frame: ..........2003 Yeti ASR-SL with Progressive 5th Element shock

Fork: ............2008 SID World Cup

Headset: .......King
Stem: ...........Ritchey WCS 100mm
Handlebar: ....Easton Monkeylite SL
Grips: ...........OGK
Barends: NA

Brakes: ..........Extralite
Brake Pads: ....Extralite
Brake Cables: .XTR
Brake Levers: .Extralite

Shifters: .............X-Ray SRT-800
Front Derailleur:.. XT
Rear Derailleur: ..Dura-Ace
Cables: ..............Shimano
Cassette: ...........M950 12-32
Chain: ...............KMC 9SL
Cranks: .............RaceFace
Crank Bolts: ......RaceFace isis
Chainrings: ........RaceFace
Chainring bolts: ..Alloy
Bottom Bracket: .American Classic isis
Pedals: ..............Egg Beater 4Ti (not pictured!)

Hub Skewers: ....KCNC
Rims: ...............Stans 355
Hubs: ...............Tune
Nipples: ............Alloy
Spokes: ............Sapim blade
Tyres: ..............Schwalbe Nobby Nic
Tubes: ..............Bontrager SL

Saddle: .............Selle Italia SLR
Seatpost: ..........USE Alien Carbon

Weight: Sub 21lb :D

I may swap the SIDs out for a set of REBA World Cups with 100mm travel, just have to see how it rides. And probably swap the tyres for Bonty Mud X (now the weathers turning!) and go tubeless.

Yes the Fox are F100X Terralogic. I believe the bike should be set-up with a 100mm fork, I'll see how the SIDs go then try the Rebas ;)

Cheers

Lovely bike, always a fan of Yetis old or modern

IMO fork is wrong though...the Foxes look much better and TBH I'd even be inclined to run 120mm with bolt through on something full sus.

Very Nice! 8)
Are those little flat bits, at the hub end of the top arm, designed to flex a bit, instead of bushes?
