    Hey everyone,
    Unfortunately due to a winter storm in Colorado and forecasted flash floods at McDowell we will be postponing this weekends demo. We are trying to reschedule for the first or second weekend in December and will repost those dates as soon as there locked in. Sorry for the delay but it will be well worth the wait.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Last day to demo from 9am - 2pm today. I went out yesterday and they have ~50 bikes to go ride.

    I road the new 575 and SB75.

    The 575 made me feel at home (I've been riding them for years) with bigger wheels it rolled a little better and the mid stroke was much improved.

    The SB75 I liked but the brakes were not dialed so it messed up the ride for me.

    I really had a good time at the Yeti Demo , all the Yeti guys were great I can't thank them enough for coming.

    I road the 75 and the 66C , and being honest I really liked the 66C better , now in all fairness the 75 was a large and even tho the numbers show it to almost be an XL chassis its not , so it was too small for me and I did not feel comfortable at all and was cramped in the cockpit so I had to work extra hard for the climbs , the descents were good and it stuck the corners good , Yeti said they were coming out with the XL in the 75 line soon I will have to try an XL and see how it works for me then, so I can't really give an accurate review on the 75 .

    Then I road the XL 66C and that bike fit me great , it climbed really well , it descended great , steered well and just worked very good , I had alot of fun on the 66C , if I wanted a 26" bike this would be the bike for me , as a plus it had my favorite XX1 transmission on it But I found that the 32 tooth front ring on the 26" wheel was way too deep for me and I could have used a 34 or 36 tooth , thats something I would not have known because I have only ridden XX1 on my 29er .

    I would like to see yeti run RS Pike Forks on their bikes , maybe next year.

    Then I got out my 95 and did one last loop on my bike and finished up a great day , I have to admit that for me I like the faster climbing smoother rolling 29er over the 26 or 27.5 ,

    They did have a lot of 66's , 575's 75's and 95's , the little 75 was cool I just need an XL chassis.

    I will say that the 75 was more planted and precise in handling than the 66 , it has a lot of the habits of the 95 in a way , it was easier to be smoother and it was razor sharp , but I was so cramped It killed me on the climbs ( thats my fault not the bikes problem ) but the 66 is a great 26er no doubt .

    The Fox fork on the 75 was really sticky and harsh ( there again not the bikes fault , and I run a Pike so I am jaded and I am old and broken and need smooth soft forks )

    The fox fork on the 66 actually worked fair ( which is rare but it did ) .

    yes the 66 is a great bike and I really can't see it getting discontinued , it will be a shame .

    I rode the 27.5 575 at Outerbike in October. I own a 95c, and looking at the geo and travel figured the 75 would ride like my 95 with a shorter wheelbase, and obviously be heavier. Yeti guys at the demo echoed that sentiment, so off I went on the 575. While heavier than my 95c, it wasn't noticeable weight. I'm 140 lbs, and owned an ASR5c before my 95c, so the ASR platform has always been very efficient for me, not "stand up, mash on the pedals" stable like the Switch, but I prefer it to say VPP. I really liked the 575, super playful, slack geo, reminded me most of the 66. I rode a SC Bronson that weekend as well, and hands down had more fun on the 575.

    I really wanted to ride the 27 575 and I am upset that I did not .
    The little bike should be really cool and looked really good in Yellow.
    I was already spent coming in to the ride day , and all the riding I did killed me badly and I just did not have another loop in me

    Oh shoot!!!! I missed it!

    I really wanted to test out the 575, as that is #1 on my list for a new trail bike.

    I hope it was good...
