- yeti asr5 chainstay worries
have just built my first bike a 2012 yeti asr 5 alloy and have just come across a lot of people breaking the carbon chainstays and now im worried i weight 230lbs and dont want to have to worry about taking it easy all the time in case it breaks! is it newer models as well as older ones or just the older ones??? or am i just worrying about nothing?? or should i consider trying to swap for another frame?Posted 6 years ago

I am on the larger side and have run mine without any concerns for over a year.
As above, early chainstays seemed to be more fragile; later models were modified.
It looks super chunky on my frame and I’m delighted wwith it.
Oh, and I ran a 150mm Talas orginally, but I never used the travel adjust and it was too long for the warranty. Happy now with 140mm Floats.Posted 6 years ago
