Ok...I just got my new bike after a month and a half wait from the time I ordered it . I would like to say after 4 months of reading, riding, asking questions and bugging LBSs (thank you ALL for your wise and helpfull input and also taking the time to reply to my questions) I finally got my dream ride. I got a...a...wait since you all can name a bike make and model just by looking a simple pic I thought that you could guess what I got. I thought this would be fun but I know some of you might not so please dont be a party pooper . The rules are simple.
1) Have fun
2) repete rule 1
Good luck
Once the bike is figured out I will post pics on the "your rig" sticky.http://www.bikeforums.net/attachment...hmentid=&stc=1

Hmmmm....first guess in six minutes got it. I should have taken a pic of just the weld if I knew this pic was that easy .I will post pics of the whole ride tommrow.
The Yeti 575 was built with the Enduro kit but I changed the fork out for the TALAS 130rlc and I am useing candy SL for pedals. I would like to thank Will at Full Cycles for his great customer service and great price(He upgraded the fork for free and I am not trying to be an advertisment but I am giving credit where credit is due).

There are a few companies that do the machined section on the chainstay. Yeti, Banshee, Canfield, probably more that I dont know about. Super sick bike dude. You will have lots of fun with your new baby. It was definitely worth the wait im sure.

ya its 7000 series and the down tube is shaped more like a soft triangle... rather than having 3 pointy ends they are very rounded if that makes sense...like an oval with 3 sides. I cant wait to ride the crap out of it. I have been waiting 10 years to get this **sniff sniff**wipes tears away **

I went to go cheat and look at your profile but I decided that wasn't really right. So I waited until after it was guessed just to see if it was there anyway. Oh, it wasn't. By the way, I like your biography...

I started riding about 10 years ago and lusted after all that was Yeti from the start. With riders like The Missle, Yeti was doing well at the races. There is an old saying "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday". Yeti has always been very very well built and designed with I big price tag...its taken me this long to save up for it .
