I must assume from your post that you do not like the 2006 ASR-SL paint schemes?

I myself like most of them execpt for the black. If I'm going to get a black bike I want it to be completely black.

Where did you come by this bit of 2007 news?

Pink!

When my wife's '06 pink AS-Rsl comes in toward the end of this month I'll be sure to post it with a large photograph. That'll give you something else to pi$$ and moan about.

The true Yeti supporters though will probably have something positive to say ;)

It's not about the looks, it's about the ride.

I understand, you are lucky to be able to own an ASR.

Scant is 100% right. I liked Pink but couldnt get one. Black was ok too, but I fell in love with Turq.

The graphics and the colour looked divine.

I couldnt justify spending over £3800 on a 06 bike. I couldnt look at it with a smile on my face.

Paint and Graphics are a huge selling point.

Errr see my post about 575 in Turq.

If the ASR came in 303 colours sales would hit the roof.

To you paint and graphics are a huge selling point. I am able to look beyond that at build and component quality. As far as your post about the 575, let them do what they want. If you really want to ***** about something call John Parker and ***** the he let it go and Yeti ended up leaving DGO to be part of a bankrupt bike company, now that is important.

Didn't realize that bytch was such a bad word.

wooah! chill guys!
yeh of course the ride is waay more important than the looks. I extensively test rode both the titus racer X & the yeti ASR. my last XC FS bike was an intense tracer, & to be honest it sucked! The back end of the racer X was slightly less flexy than the ASR (espically at speed) but the ASR just seemed faster.

Colour can be the last determing factor if you like everything else. I'm more than content with my late 03 ASR.. BUT! if yeti make a ASR in 303 colours I'd be front of the queue.

Lucky? I bought the frame off a friend 2nd hand for a real good price (thanks andy!) so I guess I am :)
