    How do you like the BOS fork? Haven't really heard any reviews on them. What model is it?

    Yes. You just need to remove the drive side cup and refit with the ISCG05 adapter in the right orientation. I'd also measure the BB shell width with the blank and the adapter.

    With the blank, the shell is 73mm and you fit a typical BB with a 2.5mm spacer on the drive side to allow for fitting a chain device. This makes the overall width to the cups 75.5mm and this is offset (by 1.25mm) from the central axis of the bike.

    The ISCG adapters may have been implemented in one of two ways. Either the shell ends up as 75.5mm and no spacer is required, or the shell stays at 73mm and a spacer is required. I haven't got mine yet so I am speculating but I would measure everything rather than make assumptions and hope it is 75.5mm as that would put the ISCG tabs where I'd expect them.

    It is the Deville 160mm w/TRC.

    Haven't had too much time to really stress test it, but it is one plush fork that swallows most things coming its way. The TRC is just making the air chamber smaller for it to ramp up for sprints and uphill on flat surfaces. It limits the travel to 110mm with some kind of blow off.

    It is made by frenchmen who know they are making good products, so support is not too great, but hey - the products are just beautiful. Have Idylle and S**toy on my DH sled and they ROCK.

    Still 73mm. Spacer required.

    Your assumption is good. The way they work is you remove one side of the bottom bracket (right side) and then put the adapter on. Your bottom bracket generally holds it in place. You can then put back on your crank and get ready to ride.

    Thanks guys, all I need to know there, I think. Since I've got it running without the chainguide at present I guess I already have to have the spacer and this will just slot into the whole assembly without changing any of that stuff. Just need the time to do it now!

    Fork: RS Lyrik RC2 DH 160 solo air
    Shock: RP23 (for now)
    Headset: Cane Creek 40 ZS
    Stem: Chromag Ranger 50 or 40mm stem
    Bars: Chromag OSX 760mm bars
    Post: KS Supernatural 150mm remote
    Saddle: Chromag Trailmaster DT
    Brakes: Shimano Saint 180's
    Cranks: SLX double 24/36
    Shifters: Saint
    Front Der: XT 786 compact
    Rear Der: XT shadow med cage
    Cassette: Sram 990 11-34
    Wheels: Stans Flows/Hadley hubs 142x12mm
    Tires: Specialized Butcher Control 2.3 tubeless

    Weight: ? expecting about 32lbs or so I imagine

    Solo air DH comes only in 170mm and can be lowered via additional internal spacers, the coil is at 160mm, I think.

    Correct, 170 spec'd and shimmed down with a 10mm spacer to get to 160mm.

    Yeppers, that is what I did to keep my bike a little lower. It's nice to have the 170mm option for steeper, chunkier/jumpier trails though. A great fork nonetheless and at only 4.8lbs with 160 or 170 of DH dampening travel, does a trail up right

    Very nice, love the white frame! I probably would of got a white frame instead of black that I am having built up due to less visibility of scratches and dings with the white. Probably have to get some frame skins for the shiny black frame so it doesn't look like a haggered 2$ dollar ho within a season. If all goes well, hopefully be riding mine come next weekend! Just waiting on a tapered steerer/crown assembly for my fork and 142x12 thru axle conversion kit for the rear hub. Stoked to put the 66 thru it's paces when it's ready. Just hope the RP23 and I get along well.
    Ride On!

    We have some frames and completes in stock at Go-Ride.com. Not sure if they are listed on our website at this time, but we have them and can ship them anywhere in the USA. I personally ride a SB66, so if you have any tech questions I can answer them.

    Just came home with this tonight from LBS! Cyclepath bike shop in Portland, OR did a awesome job building up this frame using mostly my old beaten down parts from previous ride. The fit and feel of the new ride feels pretty spot on which is amazing, cause I usually have to tinker quite a bit with new bike to get it to feel just right. Cody at Cyclepath totally dialed everything in to the utmost detail during the build and installation process and it feels totally dialed to ride right now!

    Here it is, stoked to rally the local trails afterwork tomorrow night!

    Dammit, looks mine won't be here until next year now if I hold out for yellow. Apparently, there won't be anymore yellow ones after that.
    Could get a black or white one next week, but I'm holding out.

    Stem recommendation/advice anyone?

    So, pretty happy how my new SB-66 came out with mostly older parts transferred over from previous bike, just would like to replace the stem that is on it right now. Got an old, heavy'ish Syncros FR stem I had lying around (50mm x 15*rise) on there. Stem length feels good, but rise is a bit too much and weighs about 1/4 lb more than other stems in this size.

    So having a hard time choosing between a:
    - Chromag Ranger (40x0 or 50x0) at 140g, 150g
    - Thomson X4 (50x0*) at 170g
    - Renthal Duo (50x10*) at 140g

    I came off a Thomson DH 45mm stem on previous bike that I loved how it felt, but also love my Chromag bars and seat and think the Ranger would complement the build well. But the Renthal looks pretty cool and like how it all clamps together with no 4 bolt face plate, pretty light and like the fact that it has a bit of rise to offset using another spacer under the stem, since I will have to add spacers under the stem regardless due to Syncros having at least a 5-8mm taller stack height then aforementioned stems.

    Based on this, any suggestions?

    Thx,
    JG
    Ride On!

    Looks nice and at half the weight of the Syncros stem I have on now and can be had for only about $65 online (cheaper than other stems in this class). The only dis, is that it looks like I would have to remove everything off the bars and slide the bars in to install. One of the things I was stoked about during the build was that I kept all the controls on the bars when transferring all the parts over. Stem looks solid once installed though. Still think I will go with either the Chromag, Renthal or Thomson. Just trying to decide if I should go 40x0* (Chromag), 50x10* (Renthal), or 50x0* (Thomson) in sizing and rise is all I am fretting over at this point for optimal cockpit fit/feel, even though it is a pretty minor thing to sweat.

    Thx for the suggestion though!

    Upgraded my fork to a Float 36RLC.

    Now that it is put away for the year, I decided to start upgrading some parts, 180mm ice rotors are next, that will be all the more I do.

    Rode a demo SB-95 this weekend and I loved the suspension design and how well it pedaled. I felt like it wasn't doing anything at all and then I looked down and saw the shock moving, nuts. Soaked up hard edged bumps as well as the DW too. Only thing is I still can't get with the 29" wheels, just not as good through the corners and I can't flick it around like I can the 26" wheeled bike.

    Now I struggle with the decision between the 2012 Turner 5.Spot and the Yeti SB-66. Being a former Yeti fan (two 575's, ASX, ASR, and a DJ) I feel like I want to stick with the brand but I like the ride of the DW too and it would be cool to try something different. The only draw back to the Turner is the higher price. I know this is the Yeti forum, but thoughts from any of you with experience with both bikes?

    Thanks,

    Tejas

    Where in Tejas are you located? I'm in Austin and can't wait to demo the SB-66.
    Was the demo through Yeti (huge trailer with the entire fleet) or a LBS demo bike?

    Finally together

    Frame: Large
    Fox 36 Talas
    Full XO Silver Groupo
    Thompson 50mm
    Havoc Carbon Bars
    Haven Wheels
    Reverb post
    Gobi Am Seat
    Trail King Tires (Tubeless)
    31.6 lbs.

    After the first ride at Blackrock yesterday, it truly lives up to what everyone is claiming.Pedaling was effortless but it was mostly fire road.On the downhill it was a mini DH.With the wheel base,low BB and 66 ha it was a blast.

    That is seriously my dream build for this bike. My god that's a good looking rig.
    If you don't mind me asking, how much did that build cost you? And if you do mind me asking, no worries, but know that I fully support spending lucrative amounts of money on dream bikes

    Shade, could you give a in depth comparison to the Nomad. Strengths and weaknesses of both! Hearing alot on Pinkbike over the SB not living up to the bike?

    $500?!?

    Do you work in the professional thief industry? That's ridiculously awesome.
    Does it ride as well as it looks so far?

    There is A difference between the two frames the nomads are excellent frames but realy aggressive it does climb well but the sb is much better climber.when going down hill they feel about the same to me tough yetii does suffer dou to the air shock . after switching to the coil droping in feel much smoother .bike does weigh little heavier .14.5 kg

    Awesome build, it's nice to see what my bike will look like as our builds are very similar. I dig the turquoise grips, I might have to copy those. I think our bikes can benefit from the front der. block off plates if Yeti ever ships them.

    31.6 lbs.

    After the first ride at Blackrock yesterday, it truly lives up to what everyone is claiming.Pedaling was effortless but it was mostly fire road.On the downhill it was a mini DH.With the wheel base,low BB and 66 ha it was a blast. Very good in the air.Very balanced bike. It road like it was 4 lbs lighter.
    Which trail did you take it down? Bonzai, Sickter, Grannies? I was up there just last Sunday, incredible day.

    I'm curious what you took on and if you did some drops, how did it handle that?

    I'm going with a frame to build up. Currently planning on XT/XTR build with 1x10 and then use what I can off my old bikes to cut cost. To say I have agonized over the possibilities and scrutinized my choices would be an understatement...

    Congrats!. I plan on using a similar build except WH-788 XT wheels with 142x12 in the reaer, XT breaks and float 32. 2 questions:
    1. why the XTR breaks?. Is it that much better than the XT?
    2. Why TALAS? the bike is great at 150?.
    Enjoy

    Thanks. Good to hear that you have the 142x12 chip kit for the rear ready. My local Yeti dealer did not have this option available when I ask bout this. I even have the 142x12 Hope Pro II conversion kit ready. Now its only a matter of when will the chip kit be available locally. I asked if I could order them but they could not even give a definitive answer.

    1. Why XTR brakes? Is it that much better than the XT? - I used to own the older XTs until I broke the brake lever during a crash. The lever feedback feels hard and bites the moment you squeeze the levers. The new XTR brakes feels nicer. It's soft on the squeeze and you feel as though you get more control over the brakes. I cannot comment on the new XT because I have not tried them.

    2. Why TALAS? The bike is great at 150? - Travel adjustable of course We have lots of long steep climbs here. If you look at the Yeti website, they spec the SB66 with 150mm travel forks. Now they even have 36 at 150mm. So, I thought they must be doing something right by spec'ing a 150mm fork? I think it is more balanced front and rear and 150mm up front is enough for me to play with My buddy has a 36 TALAS 160mm up front and it's heavy.

    Good luck with your build! You'll love this frame

    SB-66c

    Did anyone notice that the 2012 Yeti brochure classified SB66c as a trail bike instead of an AM bike BUT the SB66a is an AM bike? I wonder why?

    Great video and nice riding. At the beginning of it someone is walking up the trail. Any reason why or just for effect? I haven't had an opportunity to ride one but have heard that they climb very well.

    Yeah it would be nice to be summer. Maybe at least a winter where there's enough snow to ski on...

    Very nice and well done with that! NZ looks like my idea of heaven and cool to see the SB rippin' those great looking trails.

    I could use some summer right about now, how about an exchange program to PacNW (Oregon)? Keep it rippin'!

    An exchange to Oregon, tempting, I do like Oregon... Buts its a high of 26deg (c) here and the bike park is open until 8pm......

    Your right, this isn't far from heaven down here, with over a dozen different areas to ride an AM or Downhill bike, within an hour from town, or you could just take the gondola from town to the bike park....

    ...and $$$$$ at that. Sounds like about a $7k' build to me.

    I'm really diggin' my 32lb, sub $3k, poor man/rowdy SB66 build right now . It handled some big booters on local DH track nicely yesterday and still grinds up +3k' with no hesitation. My kind of "AM" bike
    Ride On!
