Nice Yeti those are sick bikes. Trying to get my wife into mountain biking but she only likes quads. Here is what I ride a 2010 trek fuel ex 6.5.

What do you ride if that is hers yours must be nice to.

Nice ride buddy!!! I ride a Yeti as well. It's a 575 Enduro Race custom build..I don't have a photo on my phone but it's a sweet ride! Hers is the 575 25 th anniversary bike, 1 of 250 total made. The more I think about it the more jealous I get! Just kidding! I'm just stoked I have a girl that enjoys what I do and let's me brew too! Good luck with your lady and the biking!

Nice I am hoping to trade up to a Banshee Prime when they are finally released that or a Pivot Mach 5.7 or the Trek Slash or the Banshee Spitfire or the Kona Honzo (so many to choose from) My wife is totally down with dirtbikes and motorcycles but bicycles of any kind freak her out strange. But she is totally down with my all my hobbies so I can over look this . Post some pics when you can.

I'd love to have that Pivot 5.7! All excellent choices man! Can't wait to get out and ride. Unseasonably warm temps gave me the itch over the last week. It snowed today. F! Oh well, supposed to be 60 Wednesday!

The team colors rock.

2 yetis in this house - ASR and ASR-5 Carbon. Even the XC bikes descend great - I bet the 575s make heroes on the down.

A good friend has a bike shop right here in my local area, and he is a Yeti dealer. Leepoff Cycles if you care to check it out on FB. Over half of my riding buddies are on 575s, one is on an SB-66, and one rides an ASR-7. The rest of us call them the "Yeti Mafia". Anyways, I'm looking to go further into debt by acquiring either an ASR-5 alloy frame or an SB-66 alloy. I can already hear you all screaming at me to get the SB. That said, I am mainly an XC rider (I don't freeride hit any big drops, etc). My current bike is a 4" rear travel Titus Racer X. I'm afraid I'll have a hard time getting used to how a 6" travel bike will climb, which is why I'm interested in the ASR-5. Thoughts?

Both ASRs feel a little slack in the headtube compared to my old XC hardtail. With my limited skills it's a little bit wandery on the up but I feel like a hero on the downhills. You can lock the rear out for long grinds uphill but I don't really bother. Monster climbing traction when you stomp on it over rock piles.

I don't even fantasize over other bikes now.

Yeah the ASR geometry is a trade off. Yeti's are super sick, its beautiful btw. They were one of my first bike crushes along with Rocky Mountain, Titus and Ellsworth. My first race bike was an Ellsworth Truth.....ah the memories of that baby. Bike's are my other long term hobby/sickness.
