Think how bad that would suck if that pad wasn't wrapped around the tree

Because his father doesn't love him enough to buy him a custom tuned rear shock. The first two kids don't actually ride better, they just have better parents.

Not sure how awesome getting that thing clean would be on a regular basis, but I dig the look.

I figured that's probably what happened..... Yeti outta give my like 10% of all sales of this new bike for helping them out! But in all seriousness, if you can have more travel while still keeping the right geometry why wouldn't you want to? Ive been hammering down rough trails about 4 times a week for the last 20 or so years cause it's the funnest thing in the world to do! Keep in mind that some of that was done before suspension was even an option on MTB bikes, Having been through the whole epic saga that has gotten us to where we are today, I can honestly tell you that those old bikes with little or no suspension put some serious wear and tear on the body over time. 150-160mm of travel is a very good thing!

I'm with you on this one prestondh. I would definitely wait for a long term review of how this "new technology" holds up before I dropped 9k on one of these bikes. Maybe it's the shit.... but my guess is it isn't, and it's gonna require a good amount of servicing which means more money and down time off the bike while its getting rebuilt. We shall see though.....

I have an SB66A and love it. I never feel "underbiked" but the one thing I don't understand about Yeti is they are always on the short end of travel. Why not just make it 165mm or 167mm of...more

I love it!! Last week all the buzz was over there new 127mm travel bike. I commented on how that wasn't enough travel compared to all the other bike competition out there, at which point I received about -30. Several people commented that I didn't know what I was talking about cause Graves was killing it on a shorter travel bike...... Now a few days later he's riding 157mm of travel. Case closed.

I agree. Was holding out on a new bike purchase waiting to see what yeti was going to do. I'm a little bummed. My sb95a has treated me well along with a clean simple design. This new bike is...more

im still under the impression that this is over complicated and partially a marketing gimmick. i mean do they really need fox kashima coated switch rails...

Do you have a specific bike picked out that you want or is that what you're look for advice on?

Added reply in a thread Specialized Enduro 650B vs. Devinci Spartan 7/18/2014 3:27 PM

If I recall correctly the enduro has a really high bb which in my opinion is a downside to it. The problem I have with the spartan is it has a short reach. I like to run a short stem and don't know that would work well on that bike. other than that they ... more ยป
