    Wish they would have made the bike ISCG05 and 12x142 from the get go.
    My thoughts exactly....

    That switchable tab is such a good idea but why the heck wouldn't it at least come with the 05? ( or for $2200 all 3...sheesh ). What new AM bike on the planet doesn't have 05 tabs?

    I guess my bike will be sitting around until those 05 mounts are out. I'm not riding it with no chain guide and im not buying another chain guide thats one of those jankey bb pinch ones.

    But maybe my frame will take so long anyway that it wont be an issue

    Or maybe just buy an XTR Shadow Plus RD! Oh ya, that's a bad idea because they're not available yet and will be ridiculously expensive.
    Anyways, that's what will be going on my SB.

    Yea, I'm kinda counting on this. My credit card doesn't get charged til it ships, which means it's probably best that it gets delayed a lil while.

    I have a large teal on order and should be in the Sept/Oct batch. Same build as my 575, but with a 2.4 rear tire.
    36 Fox Float
    King HS
    Thomson Stem
    Easton Havoc DH bars
    X9 - 10sp
    XT Cranks
    e.13 LSG+
    819/Hope wheels (12 & 20mm)
    Juicy 7 brakes
    RS Reverb post

    That being said, I finally got my suspension on my 575 setup perfectly and I don't know if I will need the SB66 now. I was buying it to solve the problems I was having with the 575...

    I hear yea--my '08 is soooo dialed right now especiallyafter Pushed shock and new Talas 150 that I am real hesitant, yet that SB66 is very tempting (the carbon version more so).

    Hopefully I'll get out of work early enough to get a ride in today. Just need to throw a new Mountain King on the front. Should be interesting coming from an '11 575.

    Nice builds guys! Keep em coming!

    I really like the cable routing on the bike too. Now I have to figure out a way to get one.

    Awesome looking frame and great spec. We'll need a ride report ASAP!

    I have a black XL on the way and I'm wondering what headset color I should get. The safe bet would be a black King but I'm leaning toward pewter King to match the grey Yeti logo on the top tube. Since you have one of the first, how do you think the Pewter would look?

    Also, does it look like the rear brake hose might rub away the paint between the upper link and the seat tube?

    Thanks!

    I want to hear some ride reports! I am waiting for my order now and need something to hold me over so I don't go buy an Ibis Mojo HD.

    Large SB-66A frame w/ stock RP23 shock
    2012 Fox 36 Float 160
    XTR R Shifter
    XTR GS R Derailleur
    XTR 11-36 Cassette
    DT Swiss Carbon Enduro 1550 Wheels
    Specialized Clutch Control 2.3 F tire, Specialized Captain Control 2.2 rear tire (tubeless)
    XO Carbon Cranks
    XX Brakes
    PG 1091 Chain
    MRP 32 T Podium Chainring
    MRP Mini G2 SL Chainguide
    KS I-950 5" drop post
    Specialized Prowess Enduro Carbon Bar
    Renthal 50mm DH Stem
    Cane Creek 40 headset

    Should have her done tomorrow. Hoping to be under 28lbs complete. We'll see....

    Interesting how it seems that the majority of posters on here are specing a 36 fork, but Yeti does not offer this as an option.....are you listening Yeti??

    Back to the size question from earlier. Are people going a size smaller? I'm having a hard time deciding.

    Thanks

    Coil rear also!

    ( at least a few of us on here are planning on it )


    as for Size, the specs are not that much bigger/longer than a 575 are they?

    Seeing how only like 2 people have the bike so far hard to say. XL will be fine for me but i'm 6'6" at least. If i was on the low end of a size I would probably go to a large ( if I was 6'3" )...but thats all internet guessing since never seen them in person.

    Our local shop has a S, M. and L. I rode the small today (I'm 5'8" 31" inseam) and thought the cockpit/ top tube fit was just right. The seatube is definitely short at 16.5", so I need to have about 9.5" of seatpost exposed. That said, I'll take the correct top tube length over the weird seat tube length.After looking at Mojo HD sizing, the small Yeti is almost the same as the medium Mojo HD in terms of seat tube and top tube length.
