I just got a 02 Yeti Kokopelli. I want to know what people say about it. I read many reviews and the frame appears to be quite good.
It cost me $500 CAD ($410 USD) after tax and custom. Its a used frame but came with LX Hollowtech I Crankset w/ BB at above average wear.
Frame can be view here
Is this a good deal? Average or did I spend too much? The frame looks a bit better then the photos but do have average wear, cable rub, chain stuck marks, tire running marks, no dent but two small dings on the top tube (very small).
This frame when it was brand new cost $1200 USD. The Fox Float R don't have a rebound adjustment knob. Do anyone why its call a Fox Float R when there is really no rebound adjustment? The frame is Made in USA and by Easton so its quite light.
I am changing to this frame from my Ellsworth ISIS because its too small. I really love the Ellsworth but the wheelbase and top tube is too short making it too hard to handle.
Do anyone know the eye to eye measurement of the rear shock and the front fork travel recommendation by Yeti?
Also does anybody know is the frame taken over by the name ASR or 575 of the current Yeti? The ASR now a days seems to have a retail price of $2k+ where the 575 is a lot cheaper then that. But there was a point in time when Yeti had a bike call (Yeti AS-R 575) with retail of $2200.
Will try to post some actual photos later
