    I can just hear it ask, "does this box make me look fat?"

    Oh, I did! But then I had to put it all back in. I have to wait a couple of days for it to be built.

    lol

    Inside, she is a beautiful slate grey, which is a very chic & slimming color.


    She does have fat tires tho, but to me, fat tires are lovely.

    Best way to Keep a Yeti. Let it out in the winter when the snow is about--Saves it getting dirty.

    Surely you can find someone on the forum to build it up for you-- I would offer but it might take a while before you got it back with carriage- testing----and testing----and testing

    And it might be a bit dirty when you got it back.

    Here she is, unboxed. Yeti ARS5, Slate Grey color, medium frame size, Enduro Plus kit.

    Sorry for the photo. We don't have a garage, and the only place with room for a photo is the living room, which we are in the middle of renovating. (Which paint color do you like?)

    We're going for a ride this morning!

    Nice bike.

    Color for walls: Farrow and Ball "skimming stone", an almost grey that looks warm at times and almost blue at others. Very relaxing.

    Made by Farrow and Ball. British company, but they sell in North America too.

    Website here.

    (Of course the color looks completely different in real life than it does on the internet)

    I had the UPS man deliver a high end road bike frame set to me once. He asked me check the box in his presence to see if there was anything in it.
