Newest Addition to the Logan Stable

Logan's picture

By Logan - Posted on 05 October 2010

So after waiting a few weeks for all the bits to turn up, my new bike is finally built courtesy of Rob, it does need a few minor adjustments, like switching the brakes from US to UK stlye and just getting the bolts torq'd properly.

The newest addition to the Logan stable is a Yeti ASR5C, with 2011 components from Shimano and Fox, yes I am running 30 speed currently as well...thinking about switching to 2 x 10 possibly. I am going tubeless once this Stan NoTubes kit turns up, the DT swiss one is rubbish. Cant wait to race this thing at the Fling and the 6 Hour at Ourimbah coming up as well.

I love the cable routing on the bike as well, its really neat and tidy.

Very very very nice.

Damn you and your ability to conjure up 'dirty' N+1 feelings.

Had just put it in there and not dropped it according to my height, granted I am tall but not that tall.

a Lefty will be awesome on this i imagine!


Rob's picture

What's this... the Tienster praising Lefty? This can mean only one thing! Spill it Tien!

Logan's picture

**** on MTBR that has put a Lefty on his 575.

but not quite fully Cannondale converted.

I have to say though the lefty is awesome, , i have the SL carbon version and it is the best fork i have used so far...

Then again i hear bad stories about servicing a Lefty.


Rob's picture

Let's see it then! Sticking out tongue

Of course the Lefty is the best fork you have ever used. Like... durh! Sticking out tongue

Logan's picture

a knife maybe....

Anyway this is screwing up my thread, which is about the adoration of my newest bike Eye-wink

The Minister for Finance was dismissed from her post about 6 months ago and since then the government has been responsible for his own spending...

Weight, not sure yet. Probably sub 25lb.

Is there a reason you'd go the SLX cassette over an XT? is it stronger or more durable?

Logan's picture

Didnt really get a choice so yeah.

Why such short travel? I would've thought something a little longer like a 140 would suit the geometry better?

Logan's picture

For what I ride which is mainly trails, XC and Enduro's its gonna be perfect. I am not the biggest fan of drop off's etc and I would only be kidding myself if I was.

The Alloy version will take a longer fork, but the carbon, they recommend 120mm. Personally dont see the need for more than 5 inches of travel.
