Get yourself a set of Hed Ardennes SL disc wheels- You will be very happy with them as a backup.

They're shooting gallery photos today so at least there will be those!

I would, but these will be ~$200. Can't complain about the cost.

Haha sorry, bud. I know the feeling. I waited 9 months for a frame when Aaron was building by himself.

Frame arrives tomorrow. Just waiting on my Tune Headset and backup wheels to be built. Berk saddles came and weighed 80 and 84- the heavier one will go on my Yeti.

Time can't move fast enough for you now. Tomorrow is taking forever!

It's actually a reward as that and the new tires should bring it under 22lbs for a 120/100mm travel bike!

KWalker's Yeti is ok, but can't compare to mine :podium:

No public photos of the Yeti while it wears Roval shoes.

Then I need to see that too!
Can any Yeti owners start a 'show us your Yetis' thread!! I have a Skoda Yeti so don't quite qualify.

Love this paint job. A Stinner frameset is on my shortlist for when I decide to get a steel / titanium bike built up.
