I signed up for the Yeti email list when I bought my bike, and I received an email yesterday saying Anthony Sloan died last Thursday. I didn't actually know him, though from the one time I talked to him, he seemed like a really cool guy. He hooked me up with the demo AS-R that solidified my bike choice. Gave me a "We usually rent them for 24 hours...but you should stop by Yeti on a Friday, and you'll get the entire weekend." Sad loss for the mountain bike community. Looks like Yeti is having a memorial ride this Friday at 11:00am at Alderfer/Three Sisters Park. Sad news.

Anthony was a great person. I'm grateful to have ridden with and drunk beer with him. He'll be missed.
Wish I'd known him better.
(there are a couple large threads about this over on emptybeer, btw)
Sad news indeed. Didn't ever know him - - my dealings were always with Seth (Bubba) - - but it sounds like he was a great guy. The Tribe has lost a good one.

Ride In Peace, Anthony
