    Yeti reviving the AS-X?

    Can it be true? I found this on a link off an MTBR e-mail today:

    http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...+Frame+09.aspx

    I find NOTHING on Yeti's website, YetiFan.com, NSMB or anywhere else about this. Are they NOS? As far as I knew, the 303R was going to be the AS-X replacement. Has anyone else heard these rumblings?

    It's on the internet so it must be true.

    Nah, the ASR7 is the "new" AS-X. I think someone at Jenson just messed up.
    I believe the clouds in my coffee more than the weatherman on t.v.

    I had heard a rumor that they were bringing it back, but that was before the 303R was officially released, so I figured that that was it. I find it suspicious that Jenson supposedly has it "in stock," but it's nowhere to be found on Yeti's website...not even as a prototype or anything in the gallery (which has 303R, Super X, and AS-R 7 pictures). That's definitely not a 303R or AS-R 7 though...picture, price, and description are all wrong. Strange, since Jenson seems to be the only place that has it. Wonder if they're trying to get rid of old leftover frames (not that the description makes sense for that either, but the price seems low...how much did they cost before?).

    ^^ IIRC, they listed for about $1,200 or $1,300 in '05. I did some more digging and found out that Go-Ride has some too; but here's what they say:

    "Yeti has tracked down a handful the the ASX frames, and Go-Ride has bought them up and is offering them at an incredible price. Frame is Anodized Black and includes the Fox DHX 5.0 Coil. Very Limited numbers available."

    Sounds like they are NOS. Go-Ride only had black mediums in stock.
