Yeti SB-66 (#longlive26)

Bike wash after every ride :)
Bike wash after every ride :) Bike wash after every ride :) Bike wash after every ride :) Freshly built w/ the new groupset @ the shop (Bicycle Outfitters - Brambleton, VA) Thinking about using electrical tape instead of zip ties, thoughts??? It's a bike, not jewelry right? Keeping it clean after every ride! Best. Saddle. Ever. Period. MashGuard actually protects my face from getting mashed in.  Don't even bother taking it off anymore. Buy cheap, buy twice. Only pedals that are wide platforms that actually match the hubs :) (Thanks Decker) Had a Monarch Plus RCT3, but the adjustability of this thing is amazing.

Additional Info 26 ain't dead :) The bike pedals incredibly well so I tend to run 24/25 psi (front/rear tire) and the shock and fork really soft (below the recommended settings). I'm not a huge jump guy (road gaps, 8 ft. drops, etc.), but I do like to hit good natural jumps on a trail and won't shy away from good table tops, and I really like to hit corners pretty hard and carry some G in and out, so I run with no LSC on the shock and fork. I tend not to worry about the chunky stuff as I usually try to carry some speed through it (so packing doesn't really become an issue), so I run the LSR around neutral and my fork's rebound at 10 clicks from open. As far as HSC on the shock, I run it at about 3-4 clicks from open; I also run the HSR about 5 clicks from open, although I may run it lower due to a little bucking as of late (maybe drop it to 3-4 clicks?). I run with about 30-35% sag and around 65 psi on my fork and 70 psi on my shock. I am about 5'6" @ 158lbs (w/o a pack). I also tend to be a more neutral rider. Usually at the end of every ride, I have less than 10mm of unused travel. I do like my 750mm bars, but if anyone that's been riding a lot knows, the more I ride, the wider I think I need my bars (I guess it's like one of those things where wives always feel their wedding diamonds are getting smaller? lol). Thought about carbon rims, but the bike accelerates so fast already that I'm not sure I actually need that much quickness, plus the ride feels really plush on extended rides. If I do end up going carbon though, I'm thinking of Reynold's but haven't looked into many options (thoughts anyone?). Anyway, if you're a local, hit me up for a ride!
