Does Yeti have a bike with 142x12? Or did i missed something?

You can also find some video's on YouTube.
The 2010 Trek Scratch is running on 142x12 hubs, so I expect Bontrager to make hubs as well and DT Swiss is also a hub manufacturer with 142 conversion kits.

But still don't get the point with 142 and Yeti... Anybody?

it is also an option on the asr carbon

i knew what the q factor was...i just wasn't sure if the wider rear followed all the way through and needed a wider bb as well.

i was wondering about a wider flange hub? if it is a standard 135 hub with typical flange width than i don't see much reason to do it as an option, correct?

i would think the main benefit would be a stronger wheel from wider flanges if that were the case
