    Odds of the SB75 Carbon version being released next spring?

    The SB75 is the bike I have been waiting for Yeti to release. I also love the X01 build specs. However not really sure I want a full Alum version. I wish Yeti would have at least released the SB75 with a Carbon rear triangle. I really like the lighter weight of the Carbon version of the SB95 and also think the Carbon version of the SB95 looks a lot better than the Alum version. So I am assuming I will like the look of a Carbon SB75 over the Alum version as well. I will also like the weight savings. However since the Alum/Carbon rear triangle SB95 only weighs 1 lb heavier than the all carbon version I might be interested in a SB75 with a carbon rear triangle. What are the odds Yeti will release either an all carbon version or at least an Alum version with a carbon rear triangle next spring? Just not really interested in dropping the cash on a frame that weighs 7.75 lbs. I currently own 2 Ventana's a El Padrino 29er HT and a El Bastardo 650B FS but have always wanted a Yeti. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

    Thanks,

    Chuck

    I'm going to go with 100%. If I had to bet I would say Sea Otter is going to see an all carbon SB75, and a new 160mm 27.5 as well.

    I have this loose theory / hope that since sb66 and sb95 are full carbon, it can't be that hard to design sb75 carbon. We all know what it will look like.

    I really like the look of this bike but 8 lbs frame is not what I want. I've thought about going for it and upgrading frame at a later date but that's gonna lose at least $1k when I sell alu frame.

    If carbon frame is sub 6 lbs and released soon, I'm all over it.
