 Good frame for jumping, 4x and general trails. My 07 does weigh a fair bit, and it is very heavy (5-6lbs) when compared to other 4x specific frames (4lbs) but it feels solid and planted and can still be built up to a lightweight racer if thats what your looking for (mines at around 27lbs at the moment and can be made lighter in a few areas without compromising strength). It is mightily strong though! Just look at the chunky dropouts.

 Yeti DJ 2010 is a beautiful balanced machine, maybe this review is too soon as she is only just fully built. I am using her for street/leisure riding at the moment being an old-school rider at 43. Gone are the lazy summer days in South Wales UK of caning it through a forest of natural Welsh woodland laying flat table top moves through the trees over untouched trails!
First thing I feel on the Yeti is the super stiff hydro formed frame, low slung downtube and long toptube (frame is a large). She reminds me of my old large Yeti ASR-SL on frame size but without the travel.
This frame is stiffer than my old Santa Cruz Jackal also! Huge headset makes my straight Gusset forks look small, running Halo SAS wheels and a single speed gear ratio of 32t-11t, did run a 36t but took a time to unwind on the straight roads, Truvative chainset 170 pedal arm length keeps her spinning but I think the Saints would be slightly stiffer overall.
The rear box section tubing has some of the chunkiest welds I have ever seen! Also the rear wheel can be set to 15.5 or 16.5 inches away from the bottom bracket for a tighter turning circle. I own a Nomad, Glory and Yeti ARC and this monster compliments my collection.
If I could turn back the clock to the 80's I would be untouchable on this baby, for racing, I feel the rear section is slightly heavier maybe to keep her planted?
For downhill, if you got the strength and skills, this would cope, taking it easy!
For 4x and dirt jumping, you will be smiling all day!
Like myself, for fun days out with no bounce, or oil/air to worry about, this is a good choice of frame overall.
I feel that you could set this bike up for a superb all-mountain rig, maybe with Fox RLC 100mm to soften the blow on landings or aching arms over long days out and would be more efficient running gears instead single speed. Whilst out, you still got a rig that will perform to any criteria needed.
Basing my review on hardcore all-mountain, dirt/street riding I would give this monster 10/10. I have tried many bikes over the years and would be very reluctant to part with this! OVERALL WEIGHT....29lbs.
My girlfriend will try this bike tomorrow and I guess will not see the Yeti for a good few days lol!
All the best in your bike choice/set-up.............Simon. Wales UK.

 This bike has a very nice geometry and it can be used for just about anyting, ranging from four cross, trail riding, and dirt jumping. I have owned mine since November 13, 2010 and it is a great felling bike to ride. Get this bike.

 Strong, Light Frame. Short stays, great for manualing. Is a great bike for DJ, Park, or 4x, depending on how you set it up. colors and overall look are second to none. No real cons (housing set up for rear d. is different, not a real neg. tho)

 got the 2010 medium frame. love it. looks awesome and geo is great. i felt right at home on it. tapered headtubes are here to stay, and with good reason. freaking stiff, i tell you! also, the sliding dropouts are a nice feature. when i was researching the frame, i questioned the integrity of the dropouts, but as soon as i pulled it from the box, all doubt vanished. this frame makes my p.3s of the past look like tinkertoys.

 Yeti DJ (MSRP $600) - The main change on the DJ was not to change. Jared "Grubby" Graves has been railing this bike on the World Cup circuit for the past two years with great results. When a rider of Jared's caliber says he likes something, you keep it that way. the DJ is also sporting the team graphics for 200

 The Dj is such as amazing piece of kit soooo light and great for getting hooked on the good old narly swichtbacks and pulling the odd whip. The fox 32 vans are a great choice for a bike like this. The spec and geometry make it fantastic for super hard-core allrounder. Yeti keep up the amazing bikes...

 Now im looking at this yeti and it has a 5.0 pound frame and fox forks! if i didnt have my black market riot (custom) which weighs 28pounds not joking i weighed it this would be a potential bike for me to buy or build up.

 2011 black frame is on my next to buy list. Tried a friends build, and I miss the solid feel of aluminum over steel.

 Light, stiff, rockets out of the starting gate and everything you want in a HT slalom race frame. Couldn't be happier.
