not odd at all, but if you want your bike a bit heavier, go for disks, its all a personal touch.

Well if you want a bike that stops and is useable all year round without all the loss of performance through dirt getting in cables etc. put some discs on there.

Reckon some XTR 960 discs & cranks would look sweet on that :D

carbon loveliness at its best.

Why this over the Pace if you're gonna go rigid with V's? You kept the Pace right? Just remembering your poll.......

well here is my newly built yeti, it is not finished, i will be changing the shifters to xt's, the cranks to cooks rsr's, and a new back wheel.
but it rides sweet, very comfortable, nice ride position, compared to my pace its so much more comfortable. i know why when people have a yeti, there is no going back.

Looks good, there is something special about Yetis

Must be quite a boneshaking ride being a fully rigid alu frame with non sus forks

ive not taken it off road yet, but it feels less bone shaking than the pace.
i used to be all for pace, but i think i've been converted to yeti now.
