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

    ASR7C, 650b. You heard it here first.
    Since when did Need have anything to do with this?

    2013 catalog?

    2013 catalog? If authentic, the wait for new line up is still on...

    disappointing to see that the enduro and race sb kits are still 3x10 and rolling the x1600s.

    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?

    That's just the frame, not a complete bike.

    $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,

    JP

    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

    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
