I saw a bargain Yeti ASR5 frameset for sale an as I have always fancied one I took the plunge. The frame originally came in white which was nice enough but I wanted something different, so off to the powder coaters she went. Absolutely chuffed with the finished article. hoping to get out on her during the coming week to see if the bike is as good as people say.

    That paint job is brilliant.
    Cheers, the colour is Prismatic Shocker Yellow over Super chrome. These guys did it, cost a little bit more than an average powder coat but they did a fantastic job, the coat is flawless and they did a top job of masking as well. Pictures do not do the colour justice, looks amazing in the flesh. Been busy and removed the red details from the rims and swapped the red valve stems for normal brass items. Also going to fit the gold coloured Renthal carbon bars. Other than that I am going to fit a Fox CTD Factory Kashima shock.

  • Like the paint scheme. Would like to do a martini racing color scheme at some point.

    The rotors look like toys to me, I guess they work. But they just look wrong IMO.

    I agree that the rotors are a bit OTT but they brighten up an otherwise boring looking set of wheels. As for custom paint schemes check out Prismatics website, they have some amazing colours.

    Took the bike for it's maiden voyage to Llandegla yesterday. Rode superbly with just a bit of rear shock fettling to be done. Could not do the bike proper justice as it was my first ride out since suffering a life threatening bout of man flu but I think this summer will be fun. The 780mm carbon Renthals are fitted in the pic along with some ODI Yeti grips. Replacing the RP23 shock for a Fox Float X Kashima which I am picking up on Wed, and I have a set of the new 2.25 Nobby Nics ordered Other than that the bike will be finished although I may buy the XT 11/46 cassette when released.

    That colour is stunning, interested to know who the FloatX rides my RP23 BV is starting to feel a bit meh of late.
