    anyone riding a Yeti SB95 or SB75?

    I'm about to order a SB95 having had a chance to demo one but I'm not able to demo a 75. Anyone riding either on local trails here in MA/NE? What do you think about 29 vs 27.5 bikes for around here?

    thanks

    My ride buddy in NH has a SB95. The thing is a beast and he loves it. He went from a 26" Scott HT to that and I now spend most of our rides catching glimpses of him way the heck ahead of me. It's quite a machine.

    Did you pull the trigger? I got about 5 rides on my SB-75 and I'm loving it. Ridden mostly central CT trails (Grayville, Tyler Mill, Rocklands). I'm coming from a hard-tail 29er so it is a big change in many aspects. It climbs like a champ and it's so much fun to ride. Looking to ride at Bachelor's soon if you wanna check it out. It's a small (which runs big - feels more like a medium). Good luck!

    I ordered a 95c and waiting for it to arrive. My plan is to build it up myself for my birthday in Oct and enjoy fall riding. Riding my rigid until then

    I have a 95 and ride with a buddy who has a 75. We switch bikes once in a while and they are both great bikes.

    I would say it depends on what you like in a bike. The 75 is a "little" more agile and while the 95 is still very agile it can roll like a monster truck when you need it to. Chasing each other down the trails I notice the 95 tends to be more straight down and the 75 needs a bit more finesse finding the right line.

    I came from a 29er hardtail and my buddy cam from a 26 f/s so what we expect from a bike is different as well.

    You'll love the 95
    Not on the rug...man!
