Competitive Cyclist has them on their website with a price of $1100 for the frame only. IMO, that's too steep for an off-the-shelf aluminum frame. For a couple hundred more you can get a custom Rock Lobster or a Carver Ti. Or for several hundred less, you can score a variety of 29er frames that likely offer the same performance as the Big Top. Yeti makes quality stuff, but I question the value of this offering.
I heard that the frame weight is around 4 pounds. I also heard that the carbon rear was supposed to help with shock absorption. I will try it out. My local toy store will have one in a few weeks. I am not sure I would buy one though. I do like Yeti bikes and I am a 29er but this one I could pass on. I might change my mind when I ride it. We will see.
