    Rider Height for SB66 c

    Purchasing a new Yeti SB66 and I'm wondering your height? I'm 5'9.5 and i'm between a large and a medium. Rode a large in durango around the parking lot and it felt a little big. Road a medium and it felt too cramped. Currently I ride a large SC LT carbon and it's perfect. Any ideas? No Demo's in Albuquerque in a long time.

    Thanks...leaning towards a medium.

    With the medium you can get a longer stem to make it feel more comfortable. I'm 5'11'' on a large.

    I'm 6' and rolling a large SB66c and I ask myself ever once in a while if I should have purchased a medium. At 5'10 I say go for the medium and adjust the stem or roll the handle bars forward.

    5'9.5" here too. I ride a medium with a 50mm stem and it's easily as big as a large Blur LT carbon - assuming that's what you are riding now.

    I'm not on a SB66 but did demo one before buying my SB95. I am 5' 10.5" and also fall into that M-L range. I ended up with the SB95 M and couldn't be happier...if I had gone the SB66 route, it would have also been a medium. I would rather go slightly smaller than slightly larger on these bikes and as already pointed out, it should be easy to adjust via other components. It is well known that Yeti's run a bit larger than average bike frame manufacturers.

    SB66 are long with relaxed seat tube angles. I'm 5-9 on a medium with a 50mm stem and I always wonder what a small would have felt like.
