Looking at the Team I also realize that it has 80mm of travel and not the 100mm I saw on the other Elements. There's an Element 50 FS here in Denver on CL and it's my size, was thinking about that as a way to get something nice and save some cash for new tires, saddle, shock pump, etc...

The 575 looks interesting..Looks can be deceiving, but it *looks* heavier than the Elements. I'm more concerned with weight than keeping bob minimized, really...as silly as that sounds. I sure won't be happy with excess bob, but I feel like in the top end bikes they all bob minimally anyways.

FWIW, I'm a 200 lb'er. I'll have to take alook at the Yeti.

Thanks
