    My new 66c. I'm still shocked at how well this thing descends.

    My tune = LSC 4, LSR 9, HSC 0.25, HSR 0.75-1
    What do you have on yours profro?
    For those who run the CCDBA, did you get the regular or XV can? do you run any volume spacers?

    I got the XV can. I don't have volume spacers on at the moment.

    Made some changes to the SB66 for this year and I couldn't be happier with the bike once again. Everything about it feels better and more composed. My gosh that old 2013 Talas was a piece of crap!! The Pike 150mm Solo was great on the first outing and I just received the new 2015 Monarch+ RC3 Debonair last night and got that bolted in. The rear shock feels a ton more supportive then the old Fox CTD early in the travel. It does feel like it takes larger hits in a very similar fashion though, bottomless on this bike. Also went from a 2x10 with heavy guide and guard down to a nice simple 1x10 this year and a bit different brake pad then the stock XT.

    I had to take a couple shots before getting it all dirty again out on the trail haha. Bike comes in at a hair under 29 lbs at the moment. Looking forward to some blissful single track!!

    Nice Adam. We're really going to have to get together once I get the all-clear to bike again.

    In the throes of a major mountain biking renaissance. Rock climbing was responsible for a decade long hiatus…..whatever, I'm now back in the saddle. I picked up a Yeti 66sb back in October. Aside from moving down to a 2x, and switching out the horrible Schwalbe Nobby Nics (now running a Maxxis Minion dhf 2.5 and a Continental Mountain King 2.5 in the rear) the bike is stock. It seems much has changed with full suspension bikes since my first generation Trek Fuel 90, and reading what you guys have done, or are planning to do is, is like trying to decipher a rap track spit in aramaic. Would any of you mind suggesting some "must do" upgrades?

    I do like the ride, but what is with the paint on this thing!? I can get paint to slough off just by staring it.

    Which build did you buy?
    I find the most common 'must do' upgrades to be handlebars and stems. Wider and shorter, respectively.
    Byt then again, it all depends on your riding. I pretty much changed everything on my SB66 Enduro Plus 2012 build except for my fork, crank (converted to 1x though) and cassette.

    Depends on what stock kit you got I guess. I had the Enduro kit with mine.

    A must for me was switching to a 1x10 from my 2x10 drivetrain using a Raceface Narrow Wide ring.

    My stock enduro kit came with Avid Elixir 5 brakes and I have quickly replaced them with M785 XT's and upped my rotors to 203F/180R (I'm a heavier rider, 205lbs geared up and I like to ride fast downhill ).

    I also replaced the handle bars and stem with a Havoc set (750mm bars, 50mm stem).

    The biggest thing I'd say though is adding a dropper post if you haven't. After riding a year with one they are AWESOME. My Rockshox Reverb died on me last week and SRAM is sending me a brand new one for free but in the mean time It sucks not having one lol.

    Definitely get a dropper post. People have good luck with Reverbs and KS Levs.
    Go tubeless!
    I'd also agree with swapping out Avid brakes for Shimanos.
    If you're just getting back into the sport, going to a 1x10 setup could be a challenge, since you'll lose the granny gear. If you do go 1x10, you'll probably want to get a 40 or 42 tooth cog in the back. Narrow/Wide refers to the front chainring, and it's just a tooth profile that helps eliminate dropped chains. RaceFace and many other make these chainrings.
    Look at your stem and handlebars -- a lot of guys here are running shorter stems (50mm) and wider bars (750mm+) than you would get on a stock build.
    Wheels make a big difference. I don't know what came stock, but there are a lot of nice aftermarket wheel choices out there. Usually you can shed some weight and add some stiffness by upgrading.
    Suspension -- odds are your bike came with a Fox 32 or 34 CTD fork. The hot fork right now is the RockShox Pike. That's a spendy upgrade, and may not be 100% necessary for someone just getting back into MTB. Same goes with the rear shock --people are upgrading to Cane Creek DBAirs, RS Monarchs, or Fox Float Xs. Again, maybe not 100% necessary right off the bat.

    Most importantly, HAVE FUN!

    The slack of cable on that front brake needs to be brought in a bit as well.

    Beautiful build though, and great looking bike.

    I was fortunate enough to have a buddy kick me down his Giant dropper post (I work in a ski shop and have kicked him down a couple pair of boards through the years). It's not the dropper that I would purchase, but one should never look a gift horse in the mouth. I do have a question about stem length….since the 66sb is an all mountain trail bike, why are so many of you going to a short, dh style stem length. Although I've been away from the sport for some time, I'm aggressive, fit, and like to go up as well as bomb down. At 6' on a large frame is there any reason why I wouldn't like a 50mm stem?

    I like short stems during climbing. I love them more doing anything else.
    I am even considering going shorter when I go bigger than 780mm bar (carbon hopefully)

    I would say that, but some people do things differently. I, for the life of me, can't understand left brake front, so I try not to tell people they're doing things wrong when it comes to personal preference.
    But they do look the wrong way around.

    Are you running your shifters on opposite sides or something?

    Pretty sure I saw another thread where John P said it can be done. Need a swingarm, dogbone, and hardware. He said work through your LBS to get it all ordered.
