    Which Frame? Yeti 575, Turner 5spot, Ventana El Ciclón.

    Currently im riding a Yeti 575 All mtn type setup, but am looking for a new frame. Has anyone ridden more than one of the above frames? Would like to know how they compare to one another. What do you all think.

    I ride a 575 and my buddy just picked up a Pivot - you may want to check them out as well.

    Those options are pricey choices for a limited gain in performance IMHO.. considering your Yeti is already widely acclaimed.
    It kinda depends on how you're going to be using it.
    If your Yeti has too much squish and you're looking for something a little more efficient... maybe the Turner.
    If it's the other way round and you're outriding your Yeti you might consider something like a SC Nomad, or even wait for the fabled and oft-maligned Ibis Mojo HD....

    Why are you looking for a new frame? The 575 is a great
    bike, and I don't see a good reason to change. I would stick
    with the 575 and rebuild it to what you want, if you aren't
    happy with the way it is. Those other frames aren't any better
    than what you already have.

    Best, John

    I am happy with my 575. I was wondering if there may be something better I was missing out on. Perhaps I should keep my crazy ideas just that Ideas and be happy with what I got?

    Or just demo the others to see if if they are any better than the 575.

    That would be to easy. I wanted ideas from the MTB community first. If I come across demo's, I will. I Need to get back to Interbike in Vegas.

    I smell a case of upgrade-itis
