I am looking to buy my first full suspension bike and am very interested in the Yeti 575 as it looks like an awesome ride!
I am a beginner, but my rides consist of aggressive xc/all mountain in SoCal.
Looking at some used 575s, I have noticed that the '08 frame has a weld in the top tube at the tie in point of the shock, while the '09 and newer frames have a continuous top tube. The continuous top tube looks like a stronger design, but maybe it's just cosmetic.
Are there other upgrades would warrant choosing a newer model over the '08? Since this is my first full sus. bike, I was thinking to get a used bike rather than dropping a huge chunk of change on a brand new bike.
