    My Yetis are ready for the new season. Are yours?

    For those of us not so lucky to have year-round riding conditions, late Winter is the time to put all the upgrades on the bikes, service suspension, and get them ready for action!

    This will be my first season riding a full suspension 29er and am looking forward to getting acquainted with the SB-95.





    Let's see the new bits on your bikes!

    Slowly getting there... April Moab trip. Got new front tire (High Roller LUST - same as rear I've been running). Debating upgrading the Float 32 150 to a Float 36 RC2...

    That white 575 is gorgeous!

    The SB-95 is new to me. It's dogboy's old frame. I replaced the Switch bearing as the rear triangle felt a bit sticky but I suspect it's mostly due to the non-driveside bushing.

    I'm officially Yeti owner. I just picked up a 2011 303R DH second hand this past week.



    Its not quite ready for the season. I still need to dial the suspension in, put a wider par on, new pedals, new tires and maybe a few more upgrades.

    Thanks NYbike, its been a labor of love for sure.

    Its my first yeti and it was purchased as a bare frame, so I did everything as you see it..

    triple coated white powder coat, xt or xtr drive train, avid ultimate brakes and so on.

    I did the whole bike and stayed in the 1000.00 range by searching my butt off and waiting for a deal on components..

    Bonking ... not feelin' well

    I need to sell my SB-66 The best bike I ever had. I got an opportunity I couldn't pass, and will be riding Liteville 301 this year. I hope this will give as many grins on my face as my SB-66. Will still keep following the Yeti Tribe closely, though

    Thanks pixi it was not my first choice either.
    I was going to go wild colors but when I landed the wheels cheap and the white avid ultimate brakes it was fate.

    I have to say it came out much better than expected and now I am a white fan also, who knows if I do another I will go all out!

    I wanted just the polishe aluminum look but thus frame had some corrosion issues here and there so I needed to fix those areas
    so maybe my next will go full powdercoat Chrome and who knows.

    Thanks for the compliment..

    Awesome to see a couple of my former bikes in the hands of stoked new owners. My SB66c (which is the product of some bike consolidation) is ready to rip for the season.

    Mine is ready ! Just picked it up Friday. I went out early this morning while the trails were still frozen to try it out, big change from a hardtail 29r. Was limited where I could ride but I got a feeling I'm gonna love it
