Custom building a Yeti puts you in a pretty exclusive club. Club isn't really the right word; Yeti call it a tribe. It's a community where a devotion to owning and riding great bikes is the common thread. A community where riding with old friends leads to new ones, where well know local trials lead to un-known distant ones. There'll be plenty of stories to tell along the way, and beer, probably really great beer!
Access to this community might not come cheap, but it needn't break the bank either. Choose your parts wisely and you can still get a lot of the benefits of a 'money no object' build without the associated price tag. GX Eagle for example; all of the range, a fraction of the price and only a marginal weight penalty. Hope Tech Enduro wheels are another wise choice. Cheap, strong, and dependable; just add some colour matched decals and they turn into something pretty special.
The process of any custom build is the gateway to good times, to many years of thrills, spills and adventures. Deliberating over options, price, weight, durability, flexibility; it takes time, it costs money. It's the start of a new story and helping you write the opening chapter is entirely our pleasure.
