This sale is Yeti BigTop 29er Large Frame only. It has less than 110 miles of Trail rides. Never been raced. Used to ride local trails in the Roswell/Alpharetta area.
The frame comes with Cane Creek Headset. As you can see from the pictures, the frame is in near new conditions with no scratches on it. I have installed Lizard Skin clear down tube protection.

The Big Top's front triangle makes use of 7005 butted and manipulated aluminum tubing to ensure ultra-precise handling and excellent power transmission when climbing out of the saddle.

The rear triangle is made from high modulus carbon fiber which gives the bike a smoother ride.
The frame has ISCG tabs and can be configured to run geared or as a single speed race machine.

In case of questions, please email me.Photo

alright great, I have a few questions.

#1 I plan on using this frame to ride xc and technical trails. From your experience will this frame be well suited?

#2 How did you like the bike when you did ride it?

#3 Are the single speed dropouts included?

Here are my responses. Please let me know if you have further questions

#1 I plan on using this frame to ride xc and technical trails. From your experience will this frame be well suited?

The BigTop is actually the first generation version of the Yeti ARC that is Yeti’s answer to the Santa Cruz HighBall – designed purely for XC racing. The bike has a carbon rear triangle which will absorb some of the bumps on the trail and make the ride less harsh. The geometry is also setup to make the bike maneuverable in technical trails. Given the kind of stuff you put on the bike, you can get it down to 24 pounds and make it a race machine if you would like.

#2 How did you like the bike when you did ride it?

The bike was very much fun to ride. I had planned on doing some races on it but work did not allow me to devote any time to prep for them. It’s a blast on single track and climbs like a beast. You will definitely enjoy it a lot when you have it built up and ready to go

#3 Are the single speed dropouts included?

I do not have the single speed drop outs for the bike as I never converted it to a Single Speed machine. I don’t think they should cost you a lot. JensonUSA has them for $125.

#4 What fork did you run on this frame (travel)?

I was running 100 mm (Ideal for XC rides) Fox Kashima coated forks on the bike. There is thread on mtbr that you can view link - http://forums.mtbr.com/yeti/big-top-120mm-fork-717815.html and make a decision on what you would prefer. I would recommend the 100mm fork if you want to ride XC

Is this frame still available???

Also if it is the way yeti sizes their bikes that say large 19-21" xl 21-23". I'm 6'2 3/4. I know I'm right on the border here. Will it be too small for me though? Even if the frame is gone will you answer this question
