Yeti Cycles ASR Beti Mountain Bike Frame - 2016 $2,899.00
Surprise them all.
Your friends told you that it was crazy to want an excitable cross-country chassis like Yeti Cycles' Beti ASRc Mountain Bike Frame over a line-bruising enduro beast. They swore you wouldn’t be able to keep up anywhere but in your weekly XC race series, and that you’d be saving for a second bike before summer’s end. You smirked and nodded at their advice as you sat sipping post-ride trailhead beers, realizing that what your well-meaning compatriots didn’t know actually could hurt them. To prove your point, show up for next week’s ride with the Beti ASRc and, well, leave them in the dirt.
Part purebred racing beast and part hungry trail animal, the Beti ASRc is the ideal mutt. It blends the best qualities of each of its parents, pushing the plusses and minimizing the classic pitfalls and shortcomings of each breed. Typical XC frames falter when the trail turns chunky, while burlier trail/all-mountain frames tend to lose steam on climbs, but neither is the case for the Beti ASRc. Weighing just 4.2lb, this feathery high-modulus carbon frame shaves weight with single-pivot suspension system, giving it nearly limitless acceleration potential on smooth, serpentine climbs without compromising on its ability to take on root lattices and brake-rutted descents.
While riding lifts may not be what your ride crew expects of your new companion, the Beti ASRc’s gravity-friendly 69-degree head tube angle orients you in an ideal position when you head for the resort. Surprise them, once again, as you sit back and blast your way through chubby rock gardens on four inches of suspension without sailing over the bars. In addition, Yeti shaped the extra-small and small sizes of the frame to accommodate 27.5in wheels, giving shorter riders similar stability to a bigger 29er, with a nimbler feel and tighter stays that complement the smaller frame. If you’re buying a medium or large, you’ll gain the stability of 29in wheels, which are better suited to the geometry of the larger frame.

please notice the pictures for the turquoise and raw show a different frame shape near the seat tube. the shape you see in the turquoise pictures are the 27.5 which comes on the XS and S. The style you see on the raw color is what will come on M and up which is the 29" frame. Feel free to contact me with any questions or clarification. I'm also happy to help on any build options.
