Photo above is Jared's SB66 enduro setup from Punta Ala, not his actual World Champs set up. We're hoping he ditches the water bottle, haha.
Jared's 2013 World Champs Yeti SB66c Build Below
Listen to the audio and hear it from the man himself. Jared Graves is going to ride his Yeti SB66 at the 2013 UCI Downhill World Championships in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Jared believes that the World Champs DH track is mellow enough for the bike and he does not feel switching to a full downhill bike would be in his best interest at this point in the season. He will beef up his suspension with a 180mm travel Fox 36 and will swap some Shimano XTR parts for Saint, but other than that, the setup will be the same as his enduro racing setup. Pretty interesting! We can wait to see how it goes for Grubby!
Below is a list of spec that Jared ran on his SB66 at the Les 2 Alpes Enduro World Series race. This will give you an idea of how his World Champs bike may be built up and we've speculated a bit ourselves.
