We've heard of people using offset shock bushings on 200x57mm shocks to make them fit the 197x57mm Remedy. Good luck! Also be sure to check out the new Monarch options that are made to fit: http://www.vitalmtb.com/news/press-release/RockShox-Monarch-and-Monarch-Plus-with-Specialized-and-Trek-Mounts-Now-Available,1027

Yup. Quite nice. More here: http://www.vitalmtb.com/features/First-Look-2015-Yeti-SB5c-with-Switch-Infinity-Technology,755
"Need" is subjective. Who honestly follows recommended service intervals? Besides, the suggested service would take you all of 5 minutes.
Considering that the SB5C has angles similar to the SB66, I'd expect the SB6C to be even more aggressive.
My best guess for this bike:
Head Angle: 65 to 65.5 degrees (with 160mm fork)
Standover: Around 30-inches for all sizes
Top Tube/Reach: Slightly longer than SB5C
Not much harder than cleaning your fork stanchions.
Sure, everyone could be making single pivots, but would they ride as well? What Yeti is able to achieve with the rail system is pretty cool.

Yeti claims to have three years of riding in all conditions on a single prototype with no service required. Fox has also put the Switch Infinity system though a one million cycle slurry test.
Graves strongly considered the SB5C for this weekend's race, and may still use it at select events.
Ride the new bike then tell us if you're still bummed. I'm pretty sure you won't be.
Should be! Does it take you to an entry form on Facebook?

Indeed. Many of the design features are similar to the recently launched SB5C, but tuned for more aggressive/race use.

Knowing that the SB5C rides like it has 20-25mm more travel than it does, this SB6C shouldn't have any issues.
Stoke level 5000! Love it.

Riders in the USA will have to build the $1,999 frame up from scratch. It includes a FOX Float X shock with CTD remote. Two completes will be available in other countries.
