    Sorry the picture rotated so it is kind of difficult to see. This "crack" is so small it was hard to picture. It is the driveside chainstay on the left side of the weld.

    Same place mine is broke. I've seen a few of them break there. Mine looked like a scratch in the clear coat for several months. I have a spare bike to ride (single speed) but I really want to get mine put back together asap. Trails here are perfect right now.

    Ironically I just sold my two spare bikes since the Yeti is that good. If you're going through competitive cyclist for a warranty replacement triangle, do they only sell/replace the triangles to people who purchased from them originally? I haven't heard back from Yeti yet and I'm just trying to figure out my options. Worst case scenario is I will need to buy a rear triangle, but there aren't any available.

    I'm not even totally against the idea rewelding it, heat treating it, and repainting it.

    Well I contacted them to see if I still had warranty and it looks like I do. If you are looking to re-weld contact turner bikes. They where going to do a broken Titus El Guapo (favorite bike ever) for me but I did the numbers and I was going to be $400/500 in getting it done. With bikes changing so much right now you may be money ahead to have yours welded.

    Still waiting but CC just got my last info wedensday so I'm not sure when yeti will get back to them. Thought About calling yeti myself but I'm sure itd do know good.

    It's a shame that you fall in love with a bike only to have it give up and be replaced by something that is "kind of" like the old one.

    who needs hangers? My SB-66 got stolen so both of my spare hangers are useless. This for the aluminum rear triangle, I think the carbon triangle has a different hanger.

    $15 shipped each or $25 shipped for the pair? These are new #356 hangers from deraillerhanger.com. They cost me $40 + shipping for the pair. (sorry if this is unsolicited spam, I just figured everyone following this thread has an SB-66 and maybe one of you has a bent hanger)

    Edit (5/16):

    Sorry to hear about your stolen Yeti :-( I hope insurance took care of you.
    I'll take the 2 hangers for $25 shipped. I snap 3 a year minimum, these things are made of silly puddy! I'll shoot you a private message.

    I'm starting to get a better feel for my new Bronson, but man I miss my SB-66!

    ^ correct, they are aftermarket clones of the factory 12mm hanger shown here:
    Yeti Cycles

    You can see that the numbering is off, as they are engraved as D345 but listed on the deraillerhanger.com website as D356.


    Just to keep some SB-66 stoke in the thread, here is my bike in October on the Rainbow Rim of the Grand Canyon (that trail could be ridden with a hardtail but I didn't have any riding pics from Zion!) ... 3 months before it was stolen!

    Update on my frame crack:

    I talked to Yeti and they wanted to know where my nearest dealer was. I knew of no dealers within 200 miles of where I currently live. Then they happened to look into a list of somesorts that directed me to a shop several miles from my house that had just filed to become a Yeti dealer so I've been working with them. They contacted yeti and told me a crash replacement rear was available so I bought that and due to it only being available in black I needed a matching front triangle. Anyways, I picked the frame up today and it's black with white letters on the side and turquoise in the middle. It doesn't look bad, but I loved the turquoise. When I left the shop today, one of their employees was complimenting me on the color of my cracked frame. Oh well.

    Anyways, when I got home to build the bike back up, I unwrapped the rear triangle to a surprise. The black paint didn't look uniform, and then I realized the RD hanger was different. I took another look at it and it was carbon! So I'm pretty stoked and kind of in disbelief. I remember reading a carbon rear end wouldn't fit on an aluminum front triangle without some different parts. Currently that's where I am. Leaving soon for 3+ weeks of riding all over Colorado and some of Wyoming.

    Yeti SB-66 Build thread-image.jpg

    Up until last week I've continued to ride with the cracked aluminum rear end and its held up okay. I've hucked it to flat pretty good and definitely haven't been easy on it although I'm fairly lightweight at 140lbs with riding gear.

    Here's how it's held up over a couple hundred miles since the crack in the paint showed up.

    Could it be just the paint cracked?

    That's what I thought at first, but it definitely isn't the case. Several different bike shops have verified it as cracked along with a frame builder. The picture actually looks less cracked than it does in person. At first I thought it was a paint crack, but now it's visible with it sitting on the bike in plain sight.

    Interesting. Mine, 3 so far, have cracked at the front of that weld. The last one I rode for 2 years cracked before getting it replaced.

    So I started building up my new frame today after I finished wrapping it in paint film. I have been dying to ride and waiting until 6pm for FedEx to drop off the parts needed for the AC conversion was excruciating. I opened up the 2013 SB66C manual for torque specs and it mentioned "creating three collet bolts". I only recieved 3 of the axle shafts to slide though and a dog bone, but no collet bolts. I wouldn't think that yeti would want me to make my own...especially without being given any dimensions or thread pattern.

    I'm not sure what the dog bone was off, but it had some turquoise paint stuck to the lower bearings and grease.

    From what I understood by talking to the guy at Yeti, the 2014 Alloy front with carbon rear runs the same dog bone from the SB66C.

    Can anyone confirm this is not the correct dog bone and maybe what it is supposed to go on? Maybe the SB75 or SB95? It doesn't have the switch infinity logo just switch.

    Edit: Looks like it is for the SB95.

    Yeti SB-66 Build thread-image.jpg

    This was as close as it would get to lining up no matter how the switch pivot was rotated.

    Yeti SB-66 Build thread-image.jpg

    Also, the frame mounting portion of the dog bone was too loose to make a nice fit and it also had two open bearings. Nothing for the short axle shaft to screw into.

    Thanks! I should have the correct dog bone and collet axle shafts arriving later this week. It appears that I was sent the parts for an SB95 after talking to Yeti.

    Parts arrived this morning and I threw it together just in time for a 3000 mile road trip all over the Rockies I am leaving for next week! Pretty stoked to be done with this entire process as it was a little frustrating at times, but all is good in the end (except the bike not being the beautiful turquoise, but a carbon rear makes up for that!)

    Since the reverb off my other bike is a 31.6mm as soon as it sells, a Fox Transfer will be on the way along with some Turquoise RaceFace SIXC bars which will pretty much complete my 66 build.

    So I decided I would buy a Yeti SB66 because I liked the turquoise and wanted a project. Could I find one in the UK not a chance so I bought a black one with my eyes shut.

    I now have the great fortune of a complete bearings (OMG how much), nuts and bolts rebuild. I thought I would post "The tale of the Yeti" build with the help of you guys recommendations on bits and pieces.

    I have some new and used parts hanging about that I will try to use up but otherwise it will be all secondhand parts except the headset and bottom bracket.

    Ok so here goes.

    Frame and rear shock which is a Fox RP23 purchased for £320 It was a steal but the bearings are shot 300 mile round trip to collect.

    New bearings ordered £120

    Powder coat frame £180 (I had to buy 5kg of paint) RAL 5018 turquoise local guy who is brilliant.

    Original decals £16

    Costs to date to get frame in good working order and the right colour £636.

    So my first question is I need to press the bearings and usually make up some kind of jig myself to do this but they do look a little awkward. Does anyone have any tips apart from take it to LBS?

    Second question is what headset Cane Creek 40 Series £65 or Hope Pick n Mix with Head Doctor £78

    Third question is what forks Pikes RCT3 160mm £300, Fox 34 CTD 150mm £300 or other.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Matt

    I just bought a Manitou Mattoc off CRC, they are £340 just now with discount code and everything I could find says its pretty much same quality as pike, only had one ride but its a lot better than the 2013 34 I had.

    As for the bearings I bought a set off ebay for £50, from a guy specialising in mtb bearings, time will tell if they work.

    For installing the bearings, if you can get hold off vice and some sockets, or even a G clamp with some sockets and a bit of plate for the other side, thats how I managed it, not gonna lie though you'll have a bit of swearing doing it however!

    So I got a bit done over the weekend, still undecided on the forks after WhiskyToads post and a bit of reserch tells me the Manitou Mattoc's are a good option to the Pike's.

    I'm thinking I may go down the route of fitting a SunRace MX3 11-42t cassette out the back with a oval 32 up front, I wonder if anyone has used this type of set up, if so how they have got on with it?

    I thought I should add some colour to the tread so here she is pre and post paint.

    Nice paint man!

    Re: Sunrace MX3 and oval 32t ... is there a reason you are going with 10x vs 11x? Do you have existing parts or are you planning on getting used/new parts for your build?

    Shimano 11x shifter and rear derailler are very competitively priced. I recommend that so that you have less modifications to accommodate clean shifting on large cassettes. Going with 10x rear derailler and 42t in back, you may have some issues requiring modification to the RD cage, limit screws, etc. to get clean shifting and also support backpedaling.

    From my firsthand experience with a Yeti SB-66 and 1x10 setup - I was using it in Western United states with 30t up front and XT 11-40 cassette in back (with OneUp 40t/16t cogset upgrade). It worked brilliantly for everything except very steep climbs, for which I think the 28t x 42t rear would have been ideal. However I did not go with a 42t cassette because I did not wish to modify my XTR rear derailler.

    Yeh, really pleased with the paint but will look better with decals. I'm designing my own after buying some from the web which I think my 5 year old niece designed with her eyes shut.

    I currently have an x0 medium cadge RD in the spares bin along with shifter and chain. My thinking also is I have a team Norco DH which has the same chain set so less spares needed probably going to chuck on some used Zee's to get me stopped and a Saint crank set too which are also on the Norco.
    Following on from your comments regarding modification to the RD perhaps I will go with 11-40 out the back and an oval 30 in the front.

    142x 12. No good for UK, just US. Probably best to order from PILO ... not sure if they ship from Israel to UK:
    Derailleur hanger, Mech hanger, Dropout bicycle, Gear hanger, Bash guard - Pilo CNC. D345 Derailleur Hanger Dropout For YETI ASR5 Alloy Carbon

    ^ that's the exact same hanger I have, but I purchased from their US partner based in Colorado. I really miss my SB-66!!!


    Also, re: 10x on your SB build ... I don't have experience with SRAM x0, but you may possibly be able to accommodate 42t with that. You should check some of the OneUp cog threads in this forum for people's experience with SRAM x0 and 42t cogsets. All of my experience and research was regarding Shimano 10x deraillers, which are known to be significantly more precise with 40t than 42t.

    Personally I think a 30 oval by 40t is fine for most mountain terrain, but every once in a while I would long for a 28 x 42 ... that was only on really long sustained, steep climbs.

    Went from Pike and Float X to 36s and Float X2 (with lockout) on my sb66c. Took it out to Morzine for testing and the X2 is definitely a great upgrade over the Float X, rear end now feels so plush and bottomless. The 36s (had them on for a while now) also feel a good bit stiffer and better for hard charging, less small bump compliance though.

    Managed to eat a set of new switch bearings in 4 days of (very hard) riding though!

    I have mine the same place and use the quarter turn mount, the long rubber is a little too small to go around the top tube so I use the small rubber rings and I ziptie bellow the top tube, learned the hard way where to mount mine after breaking it in a crash when it used to live in the stem!

    I'm just using the standard quarter turn Garmin mount on the top tube with the longest bands. Bit of a stretch but they seem fine, it been there for a year. I only really use the Garmin for checking the maps when out exploring, so its a bit in your face and at risk on the bars. It would be sweet if someone made a self adhesive go-pro style mount!

    Saruti, Plenty of routes around there to try. I did the Passportes route which is a mix of all sorts (100km, mostly uplifted, really gets you off the beaten path). I also did another loop over the top of Lindarettes-Marmottes, down the Swiss national DH, up the Col de Cou (killer in the heat!) and followed the ridge down to Champery. That was an epic day out! There's loads more if you scout around (strava is great for finding people's routes). I spend the other days on the marked runs. The SB66c was perfect around Marzine, sure the breaking bumps on the Les Gets park beat you up a bit but the good steep stuff in the trees was fine and I could still get out for all day rides too.

    Hi, here is the Col de Coux loop: https://www.strava.com/activities/629958341

    and here is most of the PPDS route from Morzine (didn't do the Les Gets loop on the end as you end up doing that bit most days anyway!) https://www.strava.com/activities/628824370

    I'm looking to see if anyone has tried a vivid air from a nomad on their 6. I have played with my float x evo a lot with pressures and volume reducers and still have yet to get it to amaze me. Don't get me wrong it is far better then I expected but still can't compare to the last two bikes that had cane creek double barells on them. Although I am drawn back to that shock I am curious about the vivid air. I have even considered a coil shock but I am a bit worried on fire road climbs( which is about all I do) that it will bob to much. With that being said I am sure someone will suggest the push shock but there is no way I am spending that about of coin on a rear shock even if it's worth every penny. Suggestions and personal experiences are appreciated. Thanks

    Here are a few shots of my 2016 sb6c in its natural habitat. This were all taken in the last two days riding in Massachusetts.

    I I hope you like them.

    This is going to be an odd question, but a good place for it. I am toying around with the idea of taking an sb66 and shortening the travel to have something more like a dual slalom or slope style type bike. Obviously accomplishing this would be with a shorter rear shock. Has anyone here done this on a sb66 or any other bike?
    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
