Building my new YETI ASR 7 (NOW BUILT)

Postby ashleygreen » Sun Jun 09, 2013 14:41 pm

Hi I'm Ash

I'm new to the forum but been riding for about 5 years, I originally had a cube analogue disc which was pretty basic but then realised it more fun and cheaper to build a bike. I bought a Marin mount vision frame (2007 mk2) and bought most of my parts second hand. I have now just sold that and now in the process of building a yeti ASR-7, I've nearly got all the parts such as sram xx1 components, magura mt8 brakes, fox rp23/ fox float r 160mm, hope pro 2 hubs with stan ex rims ect. I will post some pictures at the weekend, I just want to see what people think.

Thanks
Ash

Yeah I think it's cost me about £4000, but its cheaper than buying it from the shop and I feel I have achieved more when I build it. Here are some pics of my first build on a small budget, I think it cost me around £2000 with mostly second hand components.

I did some other stuff to it but didn't get photos before I sold it.

I will post the images of my new frames and parts on Saturday.

Thanks

Yeah I needed another challenge and also I wanted a more all mountain bike as I want to try my luck with some enduro events next year.

Well I was looking at around the same price I thinks but no one has got that bike as I made it, it is good fun aswell.

I'm puting some photos up of the new frame. :D

Thanks I should have it built by the end of the month. It's really breaking the bank but its worth it.

It's a fox float 36 r 160mm. The reason I got them is because they have no lock out(which I don't use anyway) and they were cheap.

Just got the wheels through the post now and fitted the tubeless tyres, they a lighter than what I thought :D

I am already happy with the sram group set, not only does it look good it's light too. I'm hoping to sub 12kg on this bike but I think I'm dreaming.

Should have it to a basic standard by next month.

I'm gonna have to call it between 12-13kg, you're using XX1, which is both sexual, and light, but the overall components etc. I'd be impressed if you managed under 12... and jealous :P

Ive put all the parts on and wheels now. It looks good but I am a medium frame normaly and yeti have said I am a medium but my groin is about 2 inchs from the top tube, the reach is perfect but when I finally buy my reverb seatpost I think I will be balancing on my tip toes or maybe not on my tip toes. Any advise ?
