    My dream bike is DONE!! Big pics!! WHOOOOOHOO

    hellooooo,

    Finally got my 05' Yeti AS-R all spec'ed out and built and just finished the custom fit. Here is a spec list

    Frame- 2005 Yeti AS-R SL
    Rear shock- 5th Element
    Fork- Fox F100 RLT
    Drivetrain- Full 04 XTR
    Brakes- XTR disc
    Handlebars- Easton Monkey Lite SL
    Seatpost- Easton EC70 Carbon
    Seat- Selle Italia SLR XP
    Grips- Yeti Hardcore lockons
    Wheels- Crossmax SL
    Tire- Hutchison Scorpion Tubeless
    Computer- Polar S720i
    Headset- Chris King
    Stem- EC70
    Pedals- Some run of the mill shimanos until i get some Times or eggbeaters or 959s

    Weight- 26 lbs. (with new pedals should be 25.5)

    I bought the frame and fork from my LBS (sports garage) and everything else off Ebay. Had absolutly no problems. From riding it home after the build I think the thing is the ****, but its 70 and perfectly sunny in Boulder right now, so time to hit the trails!!! Sorry to everybody stuck in the office!

    Pics below, look for a review later today...

    My yeti!

    I actually downloaded 3mb worth of pics on 56k
    But then I thought of the other users of slow connections, and resized/compressed/made into one image the pics, and uploaded them.

    Nice bike, also pretty scenery.
    Not quite as nice looking down here, it's always nice to drive through colorado in the fall to see all the colors.

    EDIT: I don't know if you wanted to remove the huge images from your post, mael; it doesn't really matter, but 3mb takes a while.

    Well,
    Just got back from the first ride... Unbelievable! Obviously. Climbs like a harrier jet, or a racoon shot in the ass, or something. Decends amazingly. Brakes are insane. New XTR group is a huge improvement. Shifting is better than my Dura-ace 10 and never mixed up direction or had an accidental shift.

    Congrats, VERY SEXY!

    I'm trying to convince my buddy to buy a 575!

    I love your bike! Tell me where you live so I can come and take it

    Are you going to be doing any XC races anytime soon? Your bike seems to be geared for that, and also, please tell me how you like the fork. I am thinking of upgrading to that fork when my SID wears out.

    THanks
