Any update on your build?

I had my best ride yet on my ARC yesterday. Everything just hooked up and flowed perfectly, both climbing and descending.

Happy trails!

Yep,

Since the rear end and Bottom Bracket were both f*cked and Yeti has no fix and does not have a warrantee the shop gave me my money back. Also found a QC sticker that said "Fail" on the inside of the head tube.

The shop had 2 other bad ARC frames with issues as well. I think the Factory in Vietnam that makes the Arc has some bigger issues and Yeti isn't going to cover it.

I finally finished the build today! I had a small issue with my E4 rear caliper not fitting due to lack of frame clearance, but I stuck an X2 caliper on there instead. Then a few drivetrain bits got stuck in customs. Here she is:

Annoyingly, but through no fault of Yeti. Went in like a dream, but I inadvertently pinched the little plastic guide tube for the dropper cable. So I had to order a PF removal tool over Easter weekend, wait for that to arrive and then reinstall the BB. No way I was taking a screwdriver and mallet to this. I somehow destroyed the BB in the process (cheap shimano one), so i have installed a Token screw in one (kinda like the Wheels Manufacturing one). Time will tell how it holds up. I expect eventually I will install a hope BB if I can swallow the cost of the installation tool or find a shop nearby that has one.
