    Dazzler - I managed to shear one of the Ti shock bolts, well it snapped in my street after I dropped off a kurb when testing the build out, did it up to the required torque as stated in the manual using a digital torque wrench, I just replaced the full mount/pin with a stainless one.

    Love the bike, but I get the impression i'm going to get through a lot of bearings (4x Switch and 2x upper link so far) not a problem as they are fairly cheap to buy and easy to fit but still a bit of a pain on a frame with a couple of grand price tag.

    I don't know if anyone else has had issues with mounting a chainguide on the SB? I ended up having to mill 2.5mm off the ISCG mounts to get the chainguide to sit right. I don't know if it's a bike issue or an issue with the Blackspire Stinger. The other option was to add an additional spacer to the BB cup but it would have thrown the chain line out.

    Spec:-

    Fox RP23 Kashima shock - Swapping this for a Push tuned Van-RC as soon as it arrives

    Maxxis Minion ST DH-F / Maxxis Highroller 60a Rear

    Rough weight with the coil - 35lbs maybe.

    I'm not trusted to add photos until I get to 10 posts, I've uploaded a couple to my gallery though.
    Nice build you have there, may I know what is the down tube protector that you are using? How to obtain 1? Thanks.

    I've been enjoying seeing all of the SB-66's you all have been posting while patiently (and impatiently) waiting for mine to arrive.

    Finally, as of today, it's here and built! So I thought I'd share. I went all out and went carbon. I didn't go all out on the components as I think XT is pretty high quality and the $ you save not going XTR can be better spent elsewhere. So this is the Race build kit. I've got a KS Lev dropper post to add to it and I will likely replace the wheels some time soon with some wider rimmed version.
    So far I only got to run it around Golden Gate Park for the last hour of daylight, but I can already tell this thing is a shredder. I can't wait to get it out on the real trails this weekend and open it up full throttle!
    Cheers!

    Chris,
    I just had the Ti bolt snap on me when i did a tear down the other day to get rid of some annoying creak. Was using the recommended TQ spec as well... what did you use as the steel replacement for the shock mount? It's too late for me at this point because I needed a new bolt ASAP since I was sending my bike with my sister on her drive to BC. I had to rush order a ti bolt and I got reamed pretty good.

    Flying out of dreadful illinois and riding the yeti in Squamish next week! Stoked! Might have to head up to whistler one day... how did the yeti fair up there?

    Hi Everyone

    I need some help and advice. I have just received the ISCG mount for my yeti sb66 and fitted to the BB I place of the 2.5mm spacer. The problem I am now having is when I fit MRP 2x chain guide the middle ring is too closer to the back plate.

    I have tried all spacers variations but my chain still rubs flush on the back plate. Installation guide shows it should be flush with the BB but It just doesn't work.

    My cranks are XTR dual rings 40/28. Has anyone else had similar problems. I'd like to keep two rings on the front hence buying this chainguide. Any thoughts or solutions.

    The ISCG mount does not replace the 2.5mm spacer on the drive side. The BB width *with the ISCG mount is 73mm, so you still need the spacer on there.

    I have also tried tried it with the ISCG mount, then the 2.5mm spacer but the chain still seems to rub the back plate.

    Hey guys.

    I have worked it out. This needs to be removed to fit it. It is the cap surrounding the BB frame section.

    Now it fits perfectly. No rubbing and smooth. So chuffed.

    I'm curios as to the difference the braided hoses make, as opposed to regular hoses. Any thoughts or insights there?

    There are some reasons but honestly think that the main reason is the bling factor on them. There will be slightly less deformation in the brake lines when you squeeze the lever which would translate to a more firm, crisp lever feel, they are more durable, and are more resilient to kinking.

    Hello all,

    I'm new to these forums, just ordered an SB-66 Race this past weekend, waiting for it to arrive. Yesterday the guy at the LBS called to say that Yeti had changed the spec on the front fork to the 2013 Fox line. He says this means that I will get a Fox Float 34 rather than the 32. Since the 34 has a 160mm travel rather than the 150mm travel of the 32, does anyone think that this is a big deal from either the geometry or weight point of view?

    Apparently this change also means the price has gone up by $100. I've got a call into the LBS to see if the rear shock is upgraded to the 2013 CTD as well, and to see if it's the version with or without the Trail adjust.

    Thanks!

    Matt

    Hi Matt, I just got my XT race with the 34 Fork, it comes with the spacer in the fork putting it at 150mm travel, its an easy removal if you want to go up to 160mm. Hope this helps

    The axle to crown on 36 is much longer than the 32 but 34 is closer (same?) so the 160mm travel is negligible.

    The 36 fork is approx 25 mm longer irrespective of the extra 10mm travel, that was the reason some people (Yeti included) dropped the travel to 150mm to try get geometry back inline but was still a degree slacker.

    The 34 should be a perfect fork for the SB.

    I am with 36 Talas so can drop for climbing and get by any issues of the longer axle to crown dimension. At full travel it is noticeably light on front end with steep terrain. The CoG gets pushed back very easily when seated with the seat tube angle as it is combined with front end height at full travel on 36 fork.

    Should have said I went for Talas forks but wish I went for Floats now, not had the need to drop them down.

    Thanks for all the replies everybody! Nice to know that the 34 is a good choice for the bike and that I can change from a 150mm travel to the 160mm travel if I want.

    weeman32 - did your frame come with a Float CTD shock, and if so did it have the Trail Adjust feature or not?

    Looking forward to getting the bike, hopefully in about a week.

    Has anyone spent time with both the 150 34 and the 150 32? I was quite disappointed with the stiffness (or lack thereof) of the 32 after coming off of a 36.

    Hey everyone, new here and just recently purchased the sb-66 xo/x9 package. Absolutely love how the bike rides an handles but i just find the handle bars to be a little to wide, it came with the Easton Haven CF 720mm handlebars. I would like to buy another bars that are shorter in width but i at the same time not compromise the ride quality or the whole geometry of this bike. What would u guys recommend. Thanks again

    I'd recommend cutting the bars that you have. If you don't have to the tools to do it at home, take it to your local shop and they can do it for you. It will be much cheaper than buying a new set of bars.

    The Havens are some of the nicest bars out there. No need to upgrade there. Give them a bit of time before cutting. You can't go back once you cut them and 720mm is not that wide.

    Thought about cutting it man but i wasnt sure if it was safe to do in regards to the bar becoming weak when cut. Anyways, how much do i cut in the sides if was going to cut it ?

    My advice is to slide the grips/brakes/etc in-board 1.4" at a time to find the sweet spot you are looking for, before cutting or replacing. The Yeti lock-on (and any lock-on grip for that matter) really make this easy. Just don't poke yourself with the protruding bar.

    Not one the same...



    Great rides Bubblo and Thimk. Amazing how unique all our builds are!!!

    Got mine finally finished to orginal custom spec I ordered. Has took some time to get the white rims, chain device, correct chain rings and 12/142 axle & mounts sorted but they got there in the end. Its like getting a new bike since I have been riding with wrong (black) wheels and without other bits mentioned.

    Thats the dogs-do-dah's BZ!!!! A lot of peeps will be interested in the CCDB performance as much written on its progressive nature.

    I am doing great thanks, fitness and climbing is well ahead of pre-broken leg levels, descents are just about back on track after gaining confidence and getting used to SB. It is an amazing machine and only just having got suspension (FR & RR) dialled I am just starting to really reap the benefits. I had both ends to firm and slowly reduced spring rate and compression. Loving the levels of control and flow the bike gives. It feels so composed is best way to describe it.

    How you fettled? How you finding the SB?

    For those who have spent time on the new 34s, how do they feel in terms of stiffness? After a few 36s the 32 felt way too flimsy. I'm thinking a 32 or 34 with a 20mm axle would have been money.

    It's just well trained!

    Managed to get it built just in time for the gravity enduro at Dyfi Forest. Nice rocky, fast descents to tune the shock in. The CCDBAir feels amazing to me, small adjustments make big differences to the handling. Although some suggest a Monarch for the frame, I had a good offer from the cane creek and that decided it for me.

    The bike as a whole is confidence inspiring. I haven't ridden anything yet where I felt that I needed the DH bike. If anything the lighter bike is easier to handle. I just need to get a few more rides in to get the shocks all dialled in. I was expecting alot more pedal bob during climbs on the 66 frame, I can't say how much is down to my settings on the ccdbair but it pedals really well.

    Glad to hear you're getting back on the trails Dazzler, time has flown, it seems only yesterday I put my hand in a cast!

    As for the 34's - I was unsure whether to go for 36's again. I spoke to the guys at Mojo in the UK and over a few phone calls the team riders all suggested the 34 as it supposedly offers more control in the corners. I honestly can't notice too much difference between the 34 & 36, although the 34 feels a lot more plush and stable than the 2012 float 32 on my hardtail. That combined with the 1lb weight saving over the 36 swayed the decision for me. I'm also very impressed with the CTD.

    To the M-Size-Riders: How tall are you? I´am 6' (182cm) and didn´t know what size is better. Medium or Large? I ride more technical trails.

    Sorry for my bad english.

    Hi Osbow,

    I am 5'10" (1.79m) and ride a medium. It is perfect for me with a short 50mm stem. It has a real good long reach for a medium. I think a 70mm stem would be perfect for you especially if you prefer a more technical ride, more XC I would consider Large.

    As for bad language... We all speak the same lingo on the Yeti thread no matter where you come from

    I'm 5'7" and riding a medium SB66, which I totally dig the fit & riding position of. Depends how you like your bike to fit... I have a mate who's 6" and rides a medium 575 and really likes it.

    Hey Dazzler2409,

    thank you for your feedback! My size is terrible. I´am always between the sizes. :/

    What do you think about the combo: Large with a short 35mm stem?

    Just another question: Does the Shimano XT FD-M786 Downswing fit?

    @osbow - What do you think about the combo: Large with a short 35mm stem?

    I ride a medium and with the longer top tube of the SB66 find myself most comfortable on a 35mm stem. It's great for descending, but I do catch myself fighting to keep the front wheel down on steeper climbs. Alternately when I run a 50mm stem it definitely climbs better, but gives up a bit on descending.

    osbow - hey brkel, how tall are you?

    I'm 5'-9" riding a medium SB66. With a medium frame I find it takes a conscious effort to re-centre your body wieght (forward on the turns / centered for jumps) wereas on a shorter TT bike it seems to happen more naturally.

    I do find though for steep, rooty, rocky sections the long TT / wheelbase make for a very stable bike and allow you to carry some extra speed through those sections.

    Hey guys, I'm going to be getting my first bike next spring and I'm leaning towards an SB66 right now. I'm trying to come up with a build for one, but I don't know much about all the components yet so I need some help. I'm 6'2, 200lbs and looking to do basic AM with both climbing and descending and my budget is $4000. The frame locally is $1700 so I'm trying to figure out what sort of build I can do for $2300. Anyone willing to help me get an idea?

    Its doable. It takes time and what I would recommend doing is making an Excel spreadsheet, and then listing each part and then pricing each part out. Here's an example:

    It's a wide open question yboc which the answer is very dependant on your riding style, trail types, etc.

    I spread my budget wisely and invested in all non-consumable items with a for a fairly burly build including 36 talas, hope hoops (Stans Flow rims) hope M4 brakes, Renthal bar/stem, Joplin 4 dropper. I went with SLX complete drive train (2x10) which I can upgrade as it wears out. This allowed me to pump money in to the bread & butter stuff you wouldn't likely replace. A wise punt I think as drive train is consumable and can be upgraded over coming years...

    This is a very strong heavy build that isn't a quick as a more XC orientated light weight buil but gives me a good confident ride. I ride without much finesse and @ 220lbs (me not bike!) it felt better suited for me.

    A 32 fork for XC tilt, 34 for XC/AM and 36 for AM/FR is a good guide. I would suggest 2 foot, 4 foot and 6 foot drops respectively should categorise reasonably well!?!

    Haha... Bikeboard' I did very similar spreadsheet (without the weight) to help derive the optimum build for me when I was spec'ing up my SB. Quick easy to juggle components about to balance budget across the build. I really enjoy this process, which was my first custom build. I spent many weeks with not too much hurry as I was laid up with broken leg so helped me through a rough spell.

    All good now that bike is built and I am back in the saddle loving every mile!!!

    Dazzler2409, I have to say this spreadsheet has been quite fun to piece together until buying time comes. I wouldn't call me a weight weenie by any means, but I figured while I was at it I'd add it on and see about where I'd be at. I'd say your categorization of forks is fairly accurate, I just wish I could get a non CTD Fox 34.

    To be fair I may have gone for a 34 fork had they been an option when I got mine. Not sure about the simplicity of the CTD though? I prefer the scope of the RC2 FIT to tune the perfect custom handling. I think the CTD detracts from the ability to do this. I am heavier build and therefore CTD doesn't allow to tune for this without FOX service centre tuning, I would imagine the D to be under damped?

    Thanks guys.

    I will definitely do a spreadsheet to kind of get an idea of what parts to get. Right now I'm still trying to learn about all the different parts, and trying to get an idea what might work best for me.

    I live in Utah, so there's quite a bit of mountain trails and also a lot of desert ones down south. As far as what kind of riding I'll be doing, its vague I know but I really think I'll be pretty versatile with it. Definitely some lengthy trail rides with climbs, and some technical and speedy descents as I progress too. I come from a offroad motorcycle background so some jumping, and flowy riding is also something I'd like to do.

    I honestly have so many questions about parts, I don't even know where to start.

    Dazzler, it sounds like we have similar concerns with the 34. While I haven't ridden one myself, the general consensus from other is the that all the tuning "options" end up limiting the its ability to be fine-tuned, which I think would only be magnified for those that are lighter or heavier than what the fork was tuned for.

    yboc, if it helps I'm up in Ogden. Where do you normally ride? I think a SLX kit is a great way to go. As a kit the weight is just a bit more than XT, but the breaks are arguably just as powerful and the cranks just as stiff. If you can fit a Reverb into the build it is definitely worth it, especially with all the ups and downs Utah has. Its the best upgrade I've made to a bike thus far.

    I just bought a Carbon on Saturday. Went in wanting the Aluminium one. It was going to take about 2 months for the dealer to get an alloy version. Apparently everyone has been scooping them up like hot cakes, combined with a low number (in comparison to other brands) made.

    I just used mine this week, just went for a Blackspire Stinger, fitted and works a treat although will give it a proper run at the weekend. I think it fits better using the ISCG.

    BB mount is a halfway solution when you have no ISCG. Not really holding things well in place.

    Have you considered going with a stock build? They are are hard to beat for value. Those dont suit folks with strong feelings about many individual components, but that doesn't sound like you (yet). I just got the Enduro plus and aside from the wheels and crank I'm fine with the spec considering the cost. The crank I was able to swap out at no cost, and I'm guessing the wheel upgrade will cost me about $200 (selling stock wheels and buying what I want). Just a thought. Not as fun as picking out each part, but for a given budget you might end up ahead.

    When you guys got your frames, did you re-torque all the pivot axle bolts, pinch bolts, etc to 90-in/lbs? That seems awfully lot, no? I would think 70-in/lbs would be enough.

    I wonder if the Torque values seeming higher than expected to you perhaps may be attributed to some of the fasteners being Titanium?

    Yet there are no changes between the manuals (2011-2013) as far as torque values are concerned on the SB66

    I broke two of the Titanium M6x1x12mm shock bolts already torquing them at 90in/lbs so I just torque them at 70in/lbs. Many other SB66 owners have broke the same screws also and some have switched to stainless steel. I'm just wondering if the specified 90in/lbs on the manual is really mandatory.

    So just want to verify that I have the rear hyrolic line run correctly. I was just going over the bike now after the first ride on Sunday and noticed some markings on the Switch piece. The line also had some rubbings on it. Is this normal, is there a better way to run that line?

    I have a hard time imagining a better hose routing, but had the same problem on my SB95.

    My fix was to zip-tie the hose to the vertical member of the rear triangle, so it wouldn't move at all.

    Ugly, but no more rub.

    Long time lurker, first time poster. I demo'd a SB66c with full XTR and Fox 34 fork before building my bike. After the demo I knew I wanted a SB66 but didn't have $7000+ for the carbon xtr version. I was able to build mine for about $4000. Everything on it was new and I got the fork second hand but it was a takeoff from a new bike and the steer tube was uncut.

    This was my first bike build and I was able to put everything together without any professional help other than youtube videos. I bought the frame from Competitive Cyclist (on special for $1760 with CTD shock) and most of the parts from Jenson. A lot of the parts were discounted b/c they didn't include original packaging so that helped on the price a lot.

    Frame - Size Large (color is white)
    Headset - Cane Creek (installed by CC before shipping)
    Fork - Fox Float 150
    Shock - Fox CTD
    Wheels - 2012 Mavic Crossmax ST
    Brakes - XTR Race
    Rotors - XT Ice Tech (160 r and 180 f)
    Shifters - XTR
    Cranks - 2x10 XT
    Cassette - 10 spd XT
    Chain - XT
    Front and Rear Derailleur - XT
    Bars - Easton Vice
    Stem - 70mm Thompson
    Seatpost - Easton Vice
    Seat - WTB
    Pedals - CB Eggbeaters
    Grips - Yeti Logo ODI
    Tires - 2.35 Nevegal front / 2.2 WTB Velociraptor rear

    I'm installing a Bionicon V.02 chain guide this weekend and will report back on how it performs. Sorry for the crappy pic but I haven't had a chance to take some good ones. I have about 5 rides on the bike and I'm very happy with it. My last bike was a 2009 Fuel EX 8 that I owned for 3 years so that's all I really have to compare it to.

    Has anyone used a chainstay protector or tape to protect the painted part of the upper and lower chainstay on the drive side? My chain doesn't cause a problem but sometimes the sole of my shoe will rub and it's surprisingly hard to get the scuff marks off especially on white paint. My temporary solution is to wrap black electrical tape around the area where my shoe rubs.

    Frameskin can help there

    Yes, in fact I developed a kit that protects the frame from this exact issue (boot scuffing and other general chips/scrapes etc). Cheers Alan

    That would be great, as I am thinking of carrying this product and was interested to see what people thought of it. Alan

    I've been using the Bionicon since June when I got my '95 and like it. It's not what I call "DH" worthy - I just don't think it's up to that level of (ab)use, but as an XC/AM device I think it's good.

    I have an MRP XCG bash on my machine on the ISCG tabs, I like that they're separate, but if I get into much enduro/superD racing I would not be surprised to need a more solid tensioner/guide.

    Just got done with the mid-winter tear down and rebuild here, upgraded to XT Shadow+ rear and a Fox DHX RC4 coil (300lb) in the process. I wish it would get a little better around here for a ride. Hoping on getting out on Monday to try out the new goods. Current weight now is 32 lbs and with a 120lb rider I'm pretty happy with that.

    Nice build. The DHX-RC4 makes the SB66 so good it's silly.

    I have seen your bike out and about a couple of times and that trail you are about to go down at Kate Reed is awesome for this type of bike. Mine is set up a bit different but rips the new trail at Trevallyn.

    Yeah awesome. There aren't many of them around here. Have you got one of the other black ones from Sprung? It works pretty well for the trails around here, wish I had a set of Fox 34s though! What are you running on yours?

    Anyone have experience on the carbon version? I've ridden one twice now and really have a good time on it. Any noticeable differences?

    And also, I've browsed through a few pages and it looks like most are ~30lbs mark. Any builds get any lower than 30?
