Nice build w/ great colors. :thumbsup: First bike i've seen w/ Crankbrothers Cobalt. Get a chance to weigh those wheels? Also, what's the saddle? I've seen one w/ the nose pointed down.

Thanks! The weight on the rims were spot on 1542grams. The saddle is the Selle SMP Evolution. It is supposed to protect the perineal area. In their site they explain about it. It is not the most comfortable but I do not get the perineal numbness after proper adjustment. Maybe it was not the saddle, just the proper adjustment.:devil:

damm thats hot. love the wheels and team colors. love paired spoke wheels, i recommed them to everyone. i have a set of Alex Aclass D2 on my ASR, love them more then my DT Swiss. they feel so much quicker, look sexy, and are very very strong. i also use a Alex Aclass D2 rear wheel on my ASX. If i was able to get a 20mm 24H hub for my D2 wheel i would throw it on the ASX. i have had the wheelset for a year and have never gone out of true. i have done 2-3ft drops on my ASR and through rough rocky terrain and the wheels have never given me any problems.

Did you have an ARC prior to this? I could have sworn I saw an ARC posted on this forum with the exact same blue components.

Yes I got it! In fact the components were for the ASR but it was backordered for so long that I bought the ARC. Now I am getting the new components for the ARC.:devil:

What we have with this bike is the Yeti Turquoise Phenomenon or "YTP" people are always trying to match components to the turq. color, my friends it NEVER works!

Seriously just look at the pictures!

Obviously did not match!!!
What we have with this bike is is the "NIYB"(Non Indifference Yeti Bike) syndrome.
You either love it or hate it but you have to say something about this aberration!!!:devil:

Crazy looking bike man. I still can't get over that seatpost/tube. I can't imagine owning a bike I could never adjust the post height with.

You'll have to let us know more about riding with those Cobalt wheels. They've been on my radar for awhile.

Yes you can. Not by a lot (1" or so) and not quickly and easily, but you can adjust the height.

Well the weight was right on at 1544grms. The finish is good, although mine had a couple of very little scratchs, posible at managing. Obviuosly these wheels looks like no other and you constantly get questions who make them.
Unfortunatelly had not been able to use them more than acouple of rides. Mainly becouse of lack of time and a knee laceration. Anyway mine had a very little side play nothing that you notice while riding but it was there. These wheels do not have cone adjustment. I emailed crankbrothers and quickly was asked to send the "sleeves" so they can eliminate the sideplay I did it and the sideplay is gone. Once I recover from the accident I will hammer the wheels so will be able to report better.:devil:
