Dude wish I would of thought of that idea .Pic in process I just built a Dean from the frame up and
am one happy camper.I didn't put a bomber on it either went with a white Bro fork.Nice fork .I am
looking at one of those frame when I build a FS bike some day .Enjoy the new toy ?
I considered putting a Marzocchi on it, friends have them and I have heard many good things about
them. I was the guy in the LBS testing the forks on all the bikes... In the end I went with what I
knew... I have been riding Manitou's since the Manitou Sport in 1994...
Putting the bike together was a labor of love... I wanted to capture the event for posterity... I
will admit the last picture was mean... We had a run of good weather when that picture was taken...
Fortunately here in Colorado one can ride close to all year round on a few of the local trails that
get direct sunlight... You Brit's have Steve Peat who riding like he does must find some good
weather and terrain to train on?

I have to admit the whole Pic in process was my wife's idea... Yes, I'm enjoying the new toy... This
is my first FS bike, I rode / tested a few including the Specialized Epic and FSR, the Titus Racer
X, Dean Ace, Trek Fuel 100. I was looking for a short travel XC bike. These were all great bikes but
none convinced me that I needed a new FS plus my hardtail. Wheat Ridge Cyclery a LBS had a demo day
at the top parking lot of Mt. Falcon (they let us test bikes on Ptarmigan Trail). It was all over
once I got on the Yeti AS-R... It was love at first ride. The bike just responded great. The rest is
history. On last thing that sold me was I went to the Yeti factory and Chris Conroy the president of
Yeti took me on a tour of the factory where they make the AS-R... It was way cool... At that point I
knew I wanted to ride a Yeti...
