575 frame came in today. I had seen a whole bike in person, but man seeing the frame by itself is very impressive. It took me a while to just take in all the little details. This thing is beautiful.

Head Badge

How did you get a 575 with the metal Yeti badge? Custom or special order?

The ano black 575 I have has a logo on the front the looks like the old school yeti logo. All of the other ones I've seen are the same way.

Sweet frame by the way!
I didnt do anything special to get that head badge. I was thinking that it would come with the etched stuff also, so I was stoked when I saw that head badge. Perhaps this is what the newer ones are shipping with.

That's the one thing I wish I had on my frame. I ordered an '05 and ended up receiving & keeping a late '04 with the decal instead. The one you have really finishes off the Yeti and gives it the look it deserves. Very nice.

Sticker here

My 2005 Yeti 575 (with RP3) came with a sticker on it. No head tube badge, which I feel is a shame. My two AS-Rsl and my wife's Kokopelli have metal badges. The sticker really seems a cheap way to save a dollar...

Headbadge is running change for 05

Sweet bike! After seeing the headbadge on a frame in a shop, I contacted the Yeti website to see if I could special order it on the bike I want to buy. A sales rep e-mailed back reporting that any new frame out of the factory is being shipped with the metal headbadge in lieu of the decal.

I want my new bike in raw, but after seing your pix in black ano...........I'm not so sure!
