I'm looking at a almost new 2009 ASR carbon frame and was wondering if there is a big differance from the 09 to the 2010?Is the 2010 worth an extra $1000.00?

I dont know any specifics, but I have heard a few people who have had 09 & now got 10's that there are quite a few changes.

Cable routeing is one of them, and a different look to the frame. Unsure what they mean.
It seems that some different place is making the new ones (thats what people think who have the 200 ones now), either that or YETI changed the design a bit.

again, I don't know specifics, sorry I cant be more help, but there are changes.

I think it has a whole new swingarm. The swingarm looks
the same as the one on the ASR5. It isn't the same as the
swingarm on my 09 ASR-Carbon.

Best, John

You sir, are correct. The 5 and ASR-C share a rear swing arm. I've heard the the seat mast mount is different too.

I actually spoke with Yeti today.They said the front triangle is the same outside of the cable routing and bng.The rear triangle is full carbon and you can replace the dropouts for either std qr or 10mm qr.He said you could get a 2010 rear triangle and bolt it on your 2009.
