No kidding!! How the hell do they fit that Atlas on it! Now I won't be able to sleep[email protected] said:Too bad Race Face won't sell the Atlas cranks with the 83 spindle. We can't find a light crankset for this bike.
esquire said:Do they need someone to explain the top tube cut-out? To me, its one of the coolest features on the bike, and its left out.
Dudes, ASK someone then............its so they can reach the allen key that literally allows a frame geometry adjustment. I want one of these bikes so damned bad, please get this thing perfect Yeti by next April.
in the flesh? said:i read an interview in a magazine (mbr maybe?) with the guy who designed it. he said that the technology will go all the way down to their xc bikes. the reason they didn't start off on lighter bikes is that it is too heavy. they will need to refine it more to get the weight down. he also explained how it had three different wiper systems.
They originally had a curved rail system but dumped it for some reason. I'm guessing strength issues.Motivated said:I have no interest in this bike other than the suspension technology, but WOW it is clearly the most innovative suspension design ever. I'm still just stunned they came up with the idea of putting the pivots on linear guides instead of fixed in the frame. Brilliant. I'd love to see the wheel path! It amazes me how little press they have received. Also, there is so much left they can do with the idea. Aside from tweaking, etc. they can also dampen the motion of the guides themselves, use curved rails, etc.
