YETI sighting in Germany!

The Eurobike show is in full swing in Germany and got the scoop on the latest Yeti mountain bikes. Chris and the boys in Golden have been hard at work with revised versions of the AS-R and 575 frames. The new swoopy lines are easy on the eyes and will bring Yeti's designs on par with current offerings from Santa Cruz, Specialized and Trek.


Is that a full carbon seat mast? yep, and that's not all. The new AS-R C gets a new carbon swing link and integrated Shimano threadless bottom bracket as well. Don't let the seat mast fool you though, if you like, you can cut it short, add a clamp and run your traditional 27.2 seatpost.


The 575 gets a radical new formed top tube and carbon seatstay. The seatstay has an additional brace to increase rigidity as well. Read the full story at
