    New Yeti DH soon??

    Seems like it's been a while and pretty quiet for Yeti on the big bike front. JensonUSA has zero 303's listed. Wondering if Yeti is brewing an SB based DH'er???

    I wish I knew as well. I'd love to upgrade my rdh. It seems like the wc had very small production numbers and never really caught on. I'd be interested to know if a 650b is in the future.

    Did my due diligence and was advised no "new" DH bike imminent.
    Not fussy about a carbon bike so for me, no need to wait to see if a carbon 303 appears.
    Not wanting a Trekialized mass produced fanboy bike.
    So I pulled the trigger on a really old fashioned out of date 26" aluminium frame. Old heap will be matched with - shock/horror - a 9 speed drivetrain.

    Bike's not built up yet but I have no doubt this 303WC beast will be a great ride. In fact, I think it'll be stunning.

    It might become a rare low volume DH "superbike" and I'll be fine with that.

    Too much worrying with MTB consumers.
    Buy, ride, shred. Repeat.

    Yeti says just ride. I agree.

    I'll do you one better. My 303 has 9 speed gripshift. Old school cool.

    I had an SB66 with 9 speed xo gripshift. Awesome and would run them again for sure.

    Old skool win.

    I thought about going to my old X0 stuff when I needed a Drivetrain overhaul. But the new clutch stuff is nice.

    I miss the old 9s gripshift, cheap, light, tough as nails and clean. I am not a fan of the new 10s twisters. I could outfit my entire fleet of bikes with new 9s X0 twisters for cheaper than one of the cheapest 10s shifters.

    I expect anything new will be ridden for many months by the World Cup guys, excited to see what they are on at Sea Otter or WC no1.
