    Unfortunately they don't make a frame that can take a 250 pound guy. Nice but meant only for fly weights

    Francis of MTBR mentioned: "It is the happy medium wheel size but we are certain it will replace the SB66, as many other brands have phased out their 26er."

    Not so sure if that will be the case, at least for a long while. There are still a lot of folks out there who still prefer a 26" bike for their AM or aggressive trail riding endeavours. And the SB66 is an excellent performing bike to boot, especially the carbon frame model.

    For me, I think I still would buy SB66c (a 26er) over the anticipated SB75c (a 27.5er). But then again, 26" long travel squish bike works best for the types of trails I ride.

    I don't agree. I used to run 240-250 and I would not hesitate to put you on as yeti sb bike. Only I would change the air shock for coil maybe. I ride a sb95 now.

    They do. I had a first gen 575. I think the weight limit was 220ish. I was 240-50 the five years I rode it. I am 235 with gear now and getting the SB95 C frame. Actually I am basically over the weight limit on everything I buy. I only worry about it when it breaks. I am over the limit on my Chinese CF rims. No worry there either. Just purchase, ride, and enjoy.
