    Quick question -- suggestion for my wife.

    Hi,

    I have a 575 (guess the "old" style, since the rear triangle is all carbon) and a new SB66. Like them both a lot.

    Want to get a new bike for the wife; she has tried both of my bikes, and she can't tell the difference.

    So I'm undecided on which I should get for her -- a new 575, or a new SB66? How different (ride wise) is the 2013 575 from the older 575 that I have? Which is lighter?

    Thanks for the comments!

    Newer 575 is stiffer ...tapered head tube, all aluminum rear, thru axle capable, and lower bb height...

    What size is your older 575? I'm looking for a med frame for a build.

    Is Yeti making a 2013 575? I heard they was phasing the 575 out and just wondering.

    Thx

    I saw a video clip on a 2013 SB66, have these started shipping as well?

    What does she ride?

    What type of riding does she do? that would be the decider for me. If she does more aggressive riding with drops jumps etc.. than the SB-66 if not I would suggest the 575 or ASR5. My wife is a tweener and rides an ASR. It has been fantastic. She didn't need the extra travel of the 575 and likes the weight reduction.
