It's a drifting Yeti on a bike, that can only be one brand...

And finally (for today…) what do we have here? It seems that we’ve been lent a new Yeti ASR 5 for a week. Chipps has been out thrashing it over hill and dale and will be running a review here shortly, but in the meantime, just enjoy the pictures…

Aluminium front end, carbon back end, tapered 'tube, neat colour scheme...

We do like that head badge

Yeti describe the ASR 5 as a 'tauter 575' and this seems to certainly be the case...

Sorry about the orange chain, that's how it arrived, honest. Look instead at the sparkly carbon stays and thick rubber protector.

Sometimes, working on a Saturday isn't all bad...
