    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!

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

    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.

    One of the employees at the bike shop got a black bike at the same time as the shop owners son got the teal one last season. They traded triangles when they were building them out.
    Both are building carbon SB's this year, so I lucked into the deal. This was a replacement frame from Yeti late in the season last year, so there were only a few rides on it before they built it up for me.
    Ditched the pump on the frame after this mornings ride, to vulnerable to the mud & dirt mounted there. Guess I'll have to find a way to attach it to my Camelbak.

    Thanks man, I like it too. I'm thinking I may change the gun metal grey around the "SB66"to teal, then clear coat the whole triangle so there's no paint line.

    Great looking SB66c, dogboy! Thanks again for the SB-95, I am looking forward to putting many miles on it. Of course, it just snowed another 5in last night.

    Some of y'all think that Yeti bikes are like baseball cards, and you want to have a full set!

    No, I'm not envious. Not at all. Nope.

    not yet

    I have only serviced the fork, derailer and pedals so far. Still need to clean and re-grease the hammerschmidt, replace a few pivot bearings, bent pivot bolts, bleed the brakes, add fresh Stans sealant, clean/grease the hubs and maybe get the shock rebuilt at dirtlabs. Should be ready to ride by next weekend though. It is going to be a long week with out lunch time rides.

    first ride this year on the SB yesterday, if only the rear tire hadn't flatted it would have been a perfect day, if a bit moist.







    The Zee rear d was flawless, no chain slap.

    Race Face XC bottom bracket turns easier than the original XT did new, the XT was crapped out from riding last June through Dec.

    Too early to tell if the ice-tech rotors make a difference.

    Gold Jagwire stuff looks fab in the sunlight.

    Replacing the rear tire with one that has durable sidewalls, I ended up flatting because the CG XC tire is just *too* XC and has crazy thin sidewalls.

    Holy crudski it's a fun machine.

    This past weekend was the first opportunity to ride a trail we've been working on over the winter. Here's a (not too great) screen capture from the fun.

    Finally got the MRP 2X installed on the 575... Was a pain - needed lots of tweaking but got it on and working smooth...

    Almost there... Got a new companion for my C-Dale Rize 2: an older 575. Clean, well kept, but with some odd components (110mm EC90 stem??

    Am replacing the long stem and EC90 post with a shorter Thomson stem, and a laid back Thomson post. Crank Bro Egg Beaters are being replaced with some nice platforms (probably Syncros--love 'em on my C-Dale, although i don't want to take those split pins to the shin...again... LOL!).

    It still has the old 130mm 409 U-Turn fork on it, so I'm looking at a Fox 36 as a replacement. Other parts are nice: XTR kit, Hadley hubs, Mavic 819's. It is a nice, solid, compact bike. Can't wait to hammer on it!
