Canfield Brothers redesign the Yelli Screamy 29er

Canfield Brothers 2015 Yelli Screamy Studio 2

The original Yelli Screamy helped to redefine what a production hardtail 29er could be, with short chainstays, a slack head angle and a playful nature. “The original Yelli was the 29er that we wanted to ride,” said Lance Canfield, owner and designer. “It didn’t exist, so we built it. It’s fun up, down, in the air, pretty much anywhere you want to take it. Just because it’s a hardtail 29er doesn’t mean you should ride it like one.” But even good products have room to get better, and the second generation Yelli Screamy adds modern features and all new tubing shapes. Stealth dropper routing, 142×12 thru-axle and a new chainstay yoke the leaves plenty of room for high volume tires, modern 1x drivetrains and chainguides.

Clocking in at $650, this is an excellent way to experience modern aggressive geometry without breaking the bank.

Aluminum not your bag? Check out the EPO carbon hardtail, or the steel Nimble 9, both with similar geometry. And if hardtails don’t do it for you, the full suspension Riot might be your huckleberry.
