    The new 575 (650b) X01 build thread

    Look what showed up this afternoon, excited to get it built.

    What showed up was pretty much what was expected from my demo at interbike.

    One notable change (or maybe I was too heat stroked to notice) is the bottom bracket. I remember it being press fit 30, but I do not remember Yeti specking it with the wheels manufacturing unit. The wheels manufacturing press fit is a slick piece, not cheap by any measure either. It is a aluminum carrier that is split and threaded in the middle, and utilizes replaceable enduro bearings. This is a very durable piece of hardware, really shows the attention to detail yeti puts into sourcing the builds.

    Thomson dropper post is now a factory available option, unfortunately the internally routed Thomson is still work in progress. So we do not get to utilize the internal routing at this time.

    More pictures and details to follow.

    I've read a few places that there is in fact internal routing for the dropper post but cant find anything official, can you further explain?

    The new 575 frame has routing for internally actuated dropper post, at this time the Thomson with internal actuation is not available.

    I apologize for the slow progress on this thread, this bike arrived right around when I was scheduled for surgery to correct a old injury. It has taken me a bit longer than expected to get moving again.

    Thanks for clarifying! Almost ordered a Thomson without stealth routing, may have to try the RS Reverb if the Thomson is not released soon.

    Looking forward to hearing some first ride impressions, enjoy.

    I am in the process of building mine, and while it will be really nice with the stealth routing, it will be a royal p.i.t.a. to put togetherů
    If anyone does it, please post.

    a vacuum cleaner and a long piece of dental floss may work. Or an air compressor. just blow or suck (HA!) the string to the desired hole (HA again!)

    Lol! You might want to ask whoever buys the bike from them.

    Any updates on build? Photos? Weight?

    The Wheels MFG pf30 bb I had didn't thread together in the middle. It just pushed together. Is will still technically allow the bearings to walk themselves out of the shell. The Praxis or Hope bb is threaded.

    The bike looks absolutely awesome btw. I have a 2014 SB-66 in the same yellow and it looks the nuts.

    This one is threaded, actually it's a slight PITA to install. The frame and bb have a very tight tolerance, you need to press in one side then screw the other side down. Use lot's of grease and go slow as the O-ring on the bb can get snagged easily.

    Kbem took the bike home and the photos from delivery day all turned out blurry. I hope to either get this one back in or have time to photo document the enduro build we are doing next.
