    SB66 Carbon build thread

    Now that the website from Yeti is updated and the rumours of imminent delivery of the new carbon super bike are hotting up, I thought it was time to start the build thread (Even though I still don't have the bike yet). format as per the other threads:

    Frame: Medium Yeti SB-66 C Black / Turq
    Fork: BOS Deville 160 TRC
    Shock: Monarch Plus ( will be selling the RP23 Air )
    Headset: Cane Creek 110
    Stem: Renthal 50mm
    Bars: ENVE DH Bars
    Post: Reverb post (Unfortunately with the external cabling)
    Saddle: Fizik Curve Chameleon - I think it's typically a roadie saddle, but I love it
    Brakes: Shimano XTR combination Race levers and Trail brakes
    Rotors: 180mm, 160mm (You know which way around)
    Gearing: Going with 1x10 speed 34 - 11/36(SRAM)
    Shifters: XTR
    Front Der: Nope
    Rear Der. XTR GS med cage shadow+
    Bashguard: E13 LG Trail
    Cranks/BB: Race Face SIXC DH Carbon (Not the yeti brand one unfortunately)
    Rings: RF
    Wheels: Easton Haven Carbon (Got to really)
    Pedals: XTR Trail SPD
    Tires: Schwalbe Nobby Nicks (Boring but predictable)

    I'm guessing the weight will be around 26lb.

    All the bits have been ordered and expecting the frame in the first batch, which I understood will be with me within the next two weeks (Fingers crossed)

    Will post when it comes in.

    Can't believe I'm the first to post a picture, but after lurking for months on the forum and the availabilty thread, thought I'd share.

    My Summary: A bucketful of awesome! Climbs like a lightweight hardtail, decends like a solid DH rig; after one ride my opinion is believe the hype and worth the wait.

    That looks awesome! What is the weight?

    I am stoked to see another Reverb! I don't know how people even think of riding trail bikes without one?! I guess they don't like descending that much? If weight is that big of an issue, take a dump or don't eat before you ride, haha.
    Want a one of a kind bike? Message me for a one of a kind paint job.

    The internet is a tough place to ride

    >>That looks awesome! What is the weight?

    Weight as pictured - 29.2, Large Frame
    It is plenty light; no comparision when picking up the other similarly equiped 6" bikes on the ride tonight

    Maybe we just know how to ride properly.

    Does it make Belcher any easier?

    HaHa, the only thing that makes Belcher easier is eating salads and more riding. Still I was really worried about going 2x10 and slogging up Belcher in particular. Harder, but faster and doable on 2x10 so I think I made the right decision on that. I think I might have gotten an award from Strava for that segment... the "You're going way to slow to have that nice of bike" award.

    Does anyone know if the SB66-C frame only comes equipped with the 12x142 dropouts? The Yeti website says it comes equipped with 12x142, while the JensonUSA website says it comes with standard quick release. I just need to know if I need to order the chipset as well.

    From everything I have heard, carbon frame is 12x142 only. The carbon was designed around that axle size as far as stiffness. So you will not need dropouts, but I do not know if the frame comes with an axle or not.

    What rings? I run a 24-36 on my 7 (not exactly a climbs-by-itself bike ) with a 10 spd 11-36 out back. The granny is almost the same as a 22 ring 34 cog in the "old" 9 spd. Seems to climb well even with a 67 degree seat tube.

    I had to order the 12x142 chipset for my SB95 so I'm guessing you'll have to also.

    My SB95 shipped with the axle. Of course I'd already ordered one so if someone is in need let me know!

    I have the 26 inner, 38 outer, 11-36 on the back. Did Lair O' the Bear tonight, didn't miss anything up or down gear wise. Rode like a different trail on the way down on the SB-66 vs my old XC bike, so fun.

    I figured I could always put a 24 and be like the old 9sp, would be really nice early season until the fitness comes along.

    It's absolutely maddening. So many dates and delays from Yeti. Latest date for commencing shipping into the UK from Yeti is this coming Friday but I have to say that I've stopped believing them. I guess not any different to other companies, for example I'm still waiting for my son's Nukeproof mega to come through which is already two weeks later than promised. Oh hum.
    Was thinking of posting a picture of all my bike components onto the site but thought that would get me burned by others so perhaps I'll wait. I'm sure it's well worth the wait tho.....

    It's unbelievable how little information there is out there. Has anyone heard when turquoise frames might start shipping?
