    [QUOTE=smellurfingers;9714315]I think they may have missed the mark with the SB95. In a couple of years no one is going to want a 29 inch FS trail bike.QUOTE]

    Obviously you haven't spent much time on one. I've ridden mine since April on everything from freeride trails (BlackRock, OR) to backcountry epics in the Cascades (Oakridge, OR) to classics in Moab. There are more nimble bikes in the air, but this thing maintains traction perfectly, gets you to the end of a ride much less fatigued than a 26er (or 650B), and saves you a lot of energy by preserving your momentum on a long ride. And in the wet season, the big wheels clear washed out ruts and slick nests of redwood roots MUCH better than their smaller counterparts.

    I came off an Ibis Mojo that was nearly 5 lbs lighter, and I prefer this thing hands down. As an added bonus, I don't have the akwardness of going back and forth between two wheels sizes for my singlespeed, cyclocross, and full-squish bikes anymore, which makes you a better handler.

    So has it been confirmed that the ASR5 is being discontinued? It's a contender for my new bike next year.

    Toying with the idea of grabbing one of these before they are gone. Would be a sweet compliment to my Asr 7 and the price is right fir a nice winter build project,,, But I am torn as I am curious what Yeti is going to have new in Jan.

    your skill is more limiting then wheel size, travel, and LBS. The best performance mod you can do to a bike is drop your seat on a decent and ride dynamic, man up and just enjoy the ride.

    3. An asr5 that is great bike but no one wants any more.
    4. An sb 66 that also kicks ass, but they are getting sued by two fronts for the suspension design.
    5. No carbon sb95.
    6. No 7" travel bike for fr. A modified sb-66 doesn't count.
    7. A prototype 303 wc carbon that would be amazing if they would release it to the public.
    8. A 575 model that dealerships can't sell becuase no one wants it.
    9. No 650b model. I didn't see this surge either but they need to convert the 575 model to a 650b asap.
    10. No crossbike that is the largest growing segment of bicycle racing.

    I would think that a good 2.35" 650b tire will be closer in diameter to your cyclocross bike.

    And you would not have to compromise on suspension travel, while nearly half the difference in wheel diameter is covered. No replacement for suspension.

    I was holding out for a 2013 Yeti, (hoping for a SB-76 C) but it's frustrating not knowing when they will release even an overview of next year's line. Gave up on Yeti and bought an SC yesterday. They have stronger carbon, anyways.

    Come on, you believe everything you read on the internet?
    SC makes quality product but to get into a pissing contest over who's carbon is stronger, is futile.
    Anyone can say anything.
    Without unbiased proof, its just BS....
    Personally I ride Aluminum, and again its my personal preference.

    Can't post links yet (new account restrictions) but the pinkbike test video (just google santa cruz pinkbike) is pretty definitive when it comes to demonstrating SC's carbon capabilities. In terms of their carbon being "stronger", I was referring to the one piece layup process they use, which strengthens the joints. From what I've read, that's a proprietary thing. Also, they control carbon thickness from the inside as well through a process that they are tight-lipped about, putting thicker support where needed and keeping other areas thinner to maintain weight reduction where appropriate. I suppose marketing hype is just that, but it was enough to make me comfortable enough to buy.

    Interesting assertion, as most CF bikes are made by Giant's OEM branch. Possibly different material, and a bit of proprietary methodology, but almost assuredly out of the same factory.

    You would be probably be just as annoyed if Yeti announced a new model for delivery in January, and then had the launch date slip several times over a couple months due to issues at the plant. Just sayin'.

    Just wanted to step in and say that this is not the case any more. There are many companies in China that are making carbon fiber frames such as ADK Technology, Ideal Bike Corporation, Advanced International Multitech Co Ltd, and Merida. A lot has changed since 2005 or so as Giant isn't the only high quality carbon maker anymore.

    Maybe someone can tell me, who is the OEM for Yeti carbon bikes?

    5 inches (127 mm) of travel on a very rigid frame is plenty of travel--the larger wheel allows me to roll stuff without the need for an extra inch anyhow. If I lived somewhere with especially manicured trails and a lot of air, I'd probably agree with you, but the extra wheel size is key for riding some of the less maintained/more erroded stuff in the Pac NW.

    I can't agree that wheel size is the key to riding anywhere. And there is no replacement for suspension - and local trail are far from manicured. And 29" wheels are 40% less stiff for 10% more weigh.

    oh come on, didn't you get the MTBR memo:
    wherever someone rides is the harshest, most extreme trails on earth, so whatever bike you ride might be ok for the tame trails you ride on, but only [29er, 650b, 26 with exactly 162.194mm of travel, 9 speed, 8 speed... blah blah blah] works for the gnar there.

    the fact that people rode those trails before 29ers or suspension or disc brakes or whatever else someone is claiming is the necessary (not most fun for them, but absolutely needed to ride his trails) is never, ever under any circumstances mentioned.

    Seriously though, arguing about what wheel size is the best is like arguing about what size jersey to wear and what size pants make you faster on a trail.

    I'm sitting here wondering how I got down all those hills all these years on my crummy 26" wheels.

    So if that catalogue is legit. No more Arc, no more Asr5 alloy (no surprise there) and no 650B 27.5 bikes? Did I miss something?
    Hmmmm not losing sleep or surprised they dumped the Arc, but no 27.5? I will await the official lineup on Yeti's page once released.

    There's a lot of manufacturers taking a wait and see on 27.5. I'm assuming Yeti is doing the same as it's probably a couple of years away from being fielded in significant numbers.

    Well, looks legit and actually underwhelming...

    No real news besides the removal of some older models.
    I can understand their hesitation to jump aboard the 650B train, but missing out on obvious choices such as a SB95-C (to bring down the weight) or a full carbon HT (as they removed the only pure bred XC rig in form of the ARC from the program)? Mhhh...

    Maybe the SB-66C isn't selling as good as it should due to the huge price tag and the current wheel size debate..

    Yeah, $2,999 to $2,399 (ad to the right>>>) for a new carbon bike on sale at Jenson is never a positive sign. Are they making changes to it or something?

    $2999 for the frame only is pretty high relative to their competition such as the Nomad and HD.

    $3,199.99 (for 2013) for the frame is pretty high. Period.

    It is a good bike, but it is not $2200 better than $999 El Guapo. Yeah, yeah, carbon this, carbon that. At the end it is a bicycle.

    No ASR-C either. Essentially no XC race bike at all. Seems like a bit of a hole in the line-up as Yeti has traditionally supported XC racing in addition to DH.

    I think a 29r hardtail and 120mm carbon sub 5lb frame 26 FS kinda covers that.

    The Big Top is not a hardcore race rig. It's much more of an all mountain hardtail than anything. It is heavier and has a more slack steering angle than most XC race frames. (I do love my BT though.)

    I will be very surprised if Yeti doesn't release another bike near Sea Otter. The updates catalogue definitely doesn't look intriguing. I hope they have a trick up their sleeves.

    Turquoise SB 95

    Hey Yeti peeps

    Jenson USA is showing Turquoise as a colorway for '13 SB-95's. If this were true it would excite me greatly. Any knowledge around this? I have yet to see an actual picture. My gut says its a mistake.

    Hey guys-

    I've mentioned it in 2 or 3 other threads, but if you're waiting for us to release our 'new line', those days are over. We'll be releasing bikes one at a time once they've been designed, exhaustively tested, and in our warehouse ready to ship. We're constantly designing new stuff and we're such a small company that trying to release a boatload of new bikes all at once just isn't realistic if we want to maintain the high quality standards and attention to detail that we think you guys want from us. There's a lot more info here:
    New Yeti model on the horizon!?!

    For what it's worth, I've seen/ridden prototypes that fill most of your guys' wish list here, so sit tight for now, and enjoy your current Yeti in the meantime!

    Happy holidays,

    I don't see the hype in 2x10. I'm running a XT 26x36 and miss my higher gears for speed.

    I'm running 38x26, but I don't think I've ever been spun out on trails with that, just occasionally on the road. I'll be running 40x28 on my race bike to make sure I don't end up spun out, but really the only race where I think that will be a factor is at the end of the Whiskey where there's a long road downhill back into town. I don't really see it being an issue in any of my other upcoming races (YMMV), but I figure the higher low gear will force me to climb faster
    Fall is here. Woo-hoo!

    Who or why would someone spend the time and money on a custom paint job and not go classic Yeti Turq and Gold, something like the anniversary 575?

    its likely a test color reject frame. i've seen a bunch of their test colors - actual painted or powdercoated frames - that didnt get a thumbs up from the yeti team - soma were pretty cool - some - not so much - but to each their own the upside it s true limited edition "from the factory" frame that you wont ever see under someone else

    There was this diminutive, somewhat androgynous guy from Minneapolis who made it big in the 80's. That SB could be the Darling Nikki edition.

There's a lot more info here:

    For what it's worth, I've seen/ridden prototypes that fill most of your guys' wish list here, so sit tight for now, and enjoy your current Yeti in the meantime!

    Happy holidays,

    There's a new turquoise 95 that's just landed as well. Same color scheme as the TQ 66A - turq with black graphics.

    The 95 just seems like an great companion to the 66. I'd love to have both.

    John P, or anyone at Yeti reading this,

    For 2013 just bring back the White/Turq/Black colour scheme for the Big Top.. The black is so boring and the blank down tube looks so dull and unfinished.. Bring back the 2011 livery as it was..

    SB95 Carbon will be out shortly. (I'm only saying this as I just picked up the regular SB95 and that seems to be my luck)

    In an earlier thread, John eluded to the fact that the 95 carbon will be a mid summer release. I was planning to buy one, but ended up getting a Spider Comp as I wanted the bike for the whole summer. It will be sweat though!

    Well as taste in colors is understandably personal, I for one was actually very pleased to receive my 2013 Big Top build in all black. Of the colors combos floating around when I made my purchase, I was least interested in the black/turq/white scheme and was not too jazzed by the black frame, white fork setup either. FWIW I "might" have been tempted by an all turquoise or lime yellow frame.

    Went to a demo weekend here in the UK last weekend, and the guys on the Yeti stands said that the carbon SB95 will be landing early summer, was very impressed by the 95, but the carbon is going to be 2lbs lighter, should be an awesome ride.

    Yeti needs to expand their size range of their 29er HT. They need to bring in a small.

    Judging by fork, frame shape and cable routing I put my money on the final design of the SB95C.
    That we did expect, now bring on the new stuff everybody has been guessing about for months and show something at sea otter

    Looks like a 100mm fork. Carbon Big Top? Carbon ARC 29?

    Edit: maybe a 120mm fork, but it really doesn't look like a 140 or 150mm

    Most SB95s I have seen so far are equipped with a standard 120mm Talas, as the Fox F34 still has limited availability.

    However, as Yeti usually run the cables on HTs on the top tube I still presume it to be a full suspension bike.
    Another possibility would be an updated ASR in 29 or 650b or a short travel XC version of an SB in one of those formats. We'll see...

    Yeah, I guess the curvy top tube makes me think SB95C. Bummer...

    Looks like a 34 fork, around 120mm, cable routing exactly like a 95 and dropper post routing...

    Oh- 3 color options in those pics, and look at the lil fins that keep the cables from sawing into the tubing, i had that same problem on my 95.

    Cable routing is different on the frames - so I say (or hope!) 2 models. One is definitely the 95c.

    I'm guessing 2 bikes.

    A SB95C and either a 4" 29" Hardtail or 4" 29 ASR.

    AS-R suspensions are a thing of the past. Switch is the new black.

    SB-95c and a SB-650b (or whatever they call it) are only a matter of time and they will be trail crushing goodness. No doubt.

    I've never ridden a switch bike yet (hopefully will make it to a demo this year), but I'm fairly certain there will be a 29" ASRc in the future.

    How is that Decathlon lawsuit going?

    My wife often rides an old Kokapelli I still have around - set up as a fireroad bike at this point. I rode it recently, when doing a tune-up. It is just as good as it always was (though only frame and shock remains at this point). Nothing wrong with AS-R suspension, especially for a shorter travel bike.

    I could easily be proven wrong, but even as a fan of big wheels, I sort of wonder if the Enduro 29er has crossed the limit of what's reasonable with big wheels. I've ridden a WFO that was built up with the burly end of things in mind, and found it to be all the things 26er fanatics hate about 29ers. The SB-95 does the lighter end of all-mountain very, very well, but if I wanted a dedicated Enduro/"big" bike, it would probably have smaller wheels.

    Yeah, but my SB95 has all but replaced my Mojo HD (even though I think my HD is still more fun) for racing etc... and training, and everyday rides, and jumping... It's entirely as capable at 127 mm as my 160/170 26er. Which is silly. And my SB95 weighs like 32 lbs, and the new Enduro is 28ish. Pretty interesting.
