    Nevermind...I dig through the box and found a bolt that fell out of the plastic baggy. Perfect fit in the frame, the longer bolt was for a bottom bracket mount.

    quick question on cable routing, did you guys route the rear derailleur cable on the drive side down or cross the head tube then down?

    Cross the front of the head tube on left, then down the drive side.

    Fresh member of the Tribe, got my SB95 out for its first 'real' ride today after hitting some trails close to the house the last few days. Absolutely love it!

    Has anyone done the conversion to the new 2014 Fox intervals for the fork? I have read it makes a huge difference with getting ride of the dive and giving a more dialed feel when using the CTD. So you can tell more of a difference between the 3 settings.

    Hi all. Just picked up a Medium Yeti SB95 UK ltd Edition. Swapped out the bars for a set of Alu Haven's and awaiting a 70mm Haven stem. Slightly concerned I should have Gordon for a Large over a medium at 5ft 11, but the shop only had a medium left. I'm sure it wil be fine but just want this bike perfect! Off to Llandegla shortly for the maiden ride.

    My SB-95 after 18 months - Build and mini-review

    I got the SB-95 soon after it was released - April 2012.
    It was the Race/XT build, so I didn't post a build... but over the past year and a half, I've done several changes. I took a few pictures recently, so here's my current setup, highlighting what wasn't stock.

    [Size Large frame w/ 2012 Fox Float Rp23 Shock (non-CTD).]

    1X10 Drivetrain:
    Wolftooth Components "drop-stop" narrow/wide chainring - 32 tooth
    XT shadow-plus, clutch rear derailleur
    Shimano chain and XT cassette (11:36)
    XT trail pedals

    Wheels:
    Stock DT 350 hubs laced to Stan's Flow EX rims. Tubeless.
    These have been great - huge, HUGE improvement over the stock rims. Very happy with the value/quality these provide for the price vs. the dream Enve setup.
    I took the stickers off the Stans Flow EX rims... I've got a pretty consistent all-black thing going on, especially with the new fork.
    Tires:
    Currently Maxxis Ardent 2.4 in the front and Specialized Ground Control 2.3 in rear.


    New Fork!

    2014 RockShox Pike - 140mm, Solo Air, RCT3.
    This has been awesome so far. Only 150 miles on it, but it's a lot of fun. Working a lot better than the two previous Fox versions I've had on it...
    The 2012 OEM Fox 34 Float 120mm (non-CTD) that was stock failed after one year. Replaced with Yeti's OEM 2013 Fox CTD... After about 1000 miles, the 2013 version started creaking really badly where the stanchions meet the crown. LBS said it's a warranty issue he's seen a few times.
    So, instead of waiting the weeks for the Fox warranty replacement and general dissatisfaction with the first two Fox forks, I upgraded to the new Pike. So far, really good.
    Moving up to a 140 travel has been good. I will say that it affected the overall ride, geometry, and control more than I expected (especially in cornering; climbing change was expected). I adjusted the spacers to lower my stem a little, and over 150 miles, I've gotten used to it by now.

    Other non-stock things:
    ESI "Chunky MTB" silicone Grips
    Specialized Henge saddle.
    Have the 2013 Easton Haven carbon bar, as opposed to the 2012 that came stock.

    As is, this bike weighs ~29.7 pounds (29 lbs, 11 ounces) according to my LBS' digital scale.

    What's next? Maybe a Dropper post... Reverb or maybe Thomson's new one.
    Also, I'm still curious about a Cane Creek DB Air shock.


    Overall, I'm happy with the bike. It has served me very well on a lot of miles of rocky, tough terrain.
    The Fox fork issues have been frustrating, but that's a broader problem it seems.
    The rear triangle cracked sometime within the first nine months right near the chainstay yoke. Disappointing, but Yeti was prompt in replacing it under warranty.

    I've recently ridden bikes by Turner and Pivot in the same category (Turner's Sultan and Pivot's Mach 429), and I really like the way they handle. They feel lighter in the rear end than my Yeti... must be the DW Link. There's a lot of Yeti love here recently, so it's worth noting that other companies are producing great stuff too. That said, I'd sure like to try out the carbon 95 and 66!

    Here are some pictures:

    I've just had a really cool ride in Hamsterley Forest in the UK, I'm not usually a fan of the place but today there was a group of us and I had got to grips with my new '95c so all signs pointed to awesome. This bike doesn't fail to amaze me at how it feels so much better than anything else I've ridden so far, it rips up hill like an angry XC racer but shreds downhill like, well a DH shredders I guess! I can't rate the bike high enough and I feel so proud to be able to own such an amazing bike.

    Also the Bontrager XR4 tyres to me, feel like lighter Hans Dampf in their all round ability, they find grip where other tyres would fail so if you're looking for something a little different I can highly recommend these too.

    I've fully got to grips with the XO1 gearing now, I feel like I'm in the right gear so much more of the time. The RaceFace cranks are ultra stiff and immediate too, all in all I'm really happy with my new setup.

    first ride on the new 95. Cutting some fresh tracks in the Black Hills.
    i had some worries about a new bike, ice and snow, on a shakedown ride.
    No problems, very confidence inspiring, and love the way it climbs and handles

    I know what you mean , that dam 95 is just so good , I knew you would love the XX1 , it has really made the ride experience so much better for me all the way around.

    Im glad Yeti replaced your frame and helped you out , that is the only problem I have is with Yeti as a company , they really have treated me poorly and do not care about customer service .

    But I can not deny that the 95 is one fantastic bike

    I just realised that I posted this to the wrong thread, it was supposed to go in the SB95c one but not to worry as they are all such great bikes! Yup those 11 gears have definitely improved things for me, I love it!

    Have you been out recently kelstr?

    I read that the new carbon rear triangles did not fit the Aluminum front triangles like that on my 2013 sb95.

    Will it fit?
    I'd hit it, but I bruise like a peach.

    I wish I could get those miles in at the moment, I'm down to 50-60 at the moment but the sun is showing its face a little more lately! I also wish I could join you on one of your dry dusty rides, I might need my snake repellant though!!

    bpnic, just to pass the word, the rear triangles from the 95C do not fit the alloy front. Believe me, i tried. Even the guys at Yeti thought it would.
    The new carbon rears have a different shape on the drive side connection between the SS and CS. This allows for a bit more space over the switch mechanism
