AS-R 7 Set ups and stuff
Hey to all you Yeti fans out there...
Anyone have any updated reviews of their AS-R 7 's? I am really trying to find a deal on one - or am considering building one, but want to hear a bit more.
I have literally searched everywhere on the interwebs for this - and comparatively to other bikes out there, there is relatively little info/stoke.
If you have pics - post them up, I'd like to see your set up.
What's your ride style? What do you like - what don't you? Where (what type trail) do you find yourself pulling out this horse for use?
Thanks in advance.-deej
I'm against picketing... but I don't know how to show it...

Seems like there are a lot of them out there for sale. Check the Colorado craigslist listings. There is a big Yeti following in Colorado and probably your best bet to find one. Also seems to be quite a few on pinkbike. I have never rode one it has never been a bike that interest me for my type of riding.

I think the word was they had a really tall standover and never sold very well. There were solid deals on them for a while due to them being discontinued, I would look for NOS deals.

I demo'ed one and the suspension felt nice but the geometry felt tall and goofy.

It looks like my buddy is selling his up here in Breck
I felt the geometry was a little steep for a 7" bike, but otherwise a nice ride."Right after you finish pointing it and you get up about 30 miles an hour and your skis plane out on top and you start to accelerate and you know you can start turning in powder. Thats the moment." - R.I.P. Shane

I just ordered a ASR-7 frame and starting to build one up. They had a good deal at competive cyclist on the 2011 frameset if you're a medium:
I'll post some pics once I have it built up. Planning to put on a Rockshox Totem to slacken the headtube angle compared to the 160mm fork in the specs.
