That's a totally different rear triangle and rail system than what they have pictured for the 303 on the Yeti site. Weird.

what's wrong with you? those two bikes are sickly.

jared is one funny guy. i got to ride with him at a couple races this year, like at telluride. he was hanging out at out pit because he's friends with luke strom on my same team.
on the gondola with those two, they were having the funniest conversations that i had ever heard.

I was kind of thinking the following.....

So because jared is a funny guy, his and tara's bikes aren't ugly?

Interesting how that works.

what are you talking about? just because i said he's funny doesn't have any affect on how the bikes actually are. i liked the 303 before i knew jared. i had a chance to ride around on Ross'.

and you can't just look at the paint and decide if it's ugly.

you have to look at:
engineering
welds
strength
suspension design
parts
tubing

and how the bike acutally rides.

have you actually ridden one?

It is definitely a visually appealing suspension design...

But how does strength have anything to do with how the bike looks? :confused:

Ugliness, in the case of a bike, is a physical characterstic. A bike can perform beautifully, work like a charm, and make you ride 10X faster and still be ugly.

they are fantastic.

and the reason that they have had numerous models is because they are trying to perfect the bike so that is can be flawless when it is finally finished. it's an entirely new concept for suspension and is very complicated.

that's true, but paint is just a small aspect of the bike, the skin if you will. the paint does not make the bike. it may be a part of the ugly, but not much.

say, it had no paint at all or maybe your favorite color....

no matter what, i still love the bike.

First I make a comment about BOTH bikes being ugly. Then you ask what's wrong with me and go on about jared being a nice guy. Then I reiterate the ugly and you ask me if I've ridden one since that has something to do with ugly. Neat.

Teal and bright yellow together are always hideous. They were ugly in the 80's and they're ugly now. But regarding that nice stp gone texas......... tara llanes has pretty eyes.

And as far as yeti's craftmanship........what are you wearing? Is it cute?

Trying to perfect? maybe. More like trying to stop from breaking. It's gonna be a while before they get it 100% ( any my guess is their gonna have to reengineer the the shock shuttle because of the stress's put on the shock)

Side note : I believe the Yeti to be an amazind design and one day it will be 100% viable and i will gladly ride one.
