ASR Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2017 by Yeti Cycles
The 2017 Yeti Cycles ASR Turq Mountain Bike Frame may look like an XC rocket, but it wouldn't be a Yeti if it didn't have a little bit of rowdy aggression mixed in. Keeping with its heritage, the ASR sits just a little longer and slacker than most other 4in bikes, which lets it blend the light weight you need to get up hills fast with the stability you want on the other side of the crest. The big news for this year is Yeti's new Turq designation, which represents the company's most advanced construction. Turq means a more precise carbon layup that's carefully molded to reinforce key stress points without adding bulk for strength where it's needed and lightness where is isn't. The biggest differences between the ASR and its SB4. 5 counterpart are a few millimeters less travel, a steeper head tube, and a single pivot suspension rather than the heftier Switch Infinity. This suits it for the XC racer who wants to get to the top first and demonstrate bike handling skills by dissecting terrain that enduro sled bruisers would just wallop through. If Yeti's Super Bike line comprises enduro sledge hammers, then the ASR is the surgeon's scalpel. That's not to say that the ASR gets timid when grueling climbs let onto jarring descents littered with baby heads, loose shale, and twisty roots. This is where other cross-country bikes would be begging for mercy, yet the ASR shines across abusive terrain and white-knuckle descents. The ASR is built to pair with 27. 5 or 29in wheels, depending on size, so the big (or bigger) hoops steamroll anything lying in their path, allowing you to ride over trail impediments with effortless composure. And because it's distinctly Yeti at heart, the ASR proudly retains a gravity-friendly persona with a head tube angle of either 68 or 69 degrees, again depending on size. This more relaxed geometry won't chuck you over the bars like other cross-country bikes when the going gets steep, allowing you to confidently descend on only four inches of su...

Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
