So after waiting a million years my wife finally got her SB75 medium race build in turquoise. Pro Mountain Outfitters in Bridgeport WV took real good care of us and earned me as a customer for many years to come. Only big changes to the build on the 75 was the brakes and the wheels soon. Still waiting for stans to get the arch ex 650b back in stock. The DT's are an awesome wheelset but after you've run CK hubs for a while it's hard to go without. The brakes are a set of hope tech/ x2's that have been on at least three bikes over the last three years. We have our parts we have gotten used to and they work for us I love the mud clearance on the 75. I hope the "new" 66 has just as much. My 66 is a bit tight with the schwalbe HD and Dirty Dan. Any how here's the bikes:
My 66 was also a race build. Swapped out the wheels with my much loved king/stand flow combo. And my favorite fork since my first fox 36. The pike is just the best fork I've ever had. I'm going to look into converting it to the 160 version if I can. I also converted it to a 1x10 with a race face narrow/wide 34t ring. It works well with the 12/36 cassette and I've only wanted a bit lower here lately with the sloppy trails and my fat winter butt trying to pedal.
So far the 66 is my favorite bike ever. My past bike history goes like this

blah blah blah....
I've had a little bit of everything. I've ridden a single speed a few times, hate 29's and love 2.35+ tires on 26 inch rims.
I've broken a few frames and killed more wheels than I can count. I miss riding a bmx bike but I'm too old for that stuff any more (34).
All and all I can say I've always wanted a yeti since I had my first mountain bike (91 specialized hardrock 24"). My favorite was the old loop tails of the early 90's (I think).
Keep up the good work yeti and I'll stop rambling.
