    Yeti SB66C Build

    So I've bought myself a Yeti SB66C frame and am in the middle of building it up. I've bought the full SRAM X01 drivetrain, but my local bike shop is saying that the X01 crankset isn't compatible at all with the SB66 frame??!

    Is this true? Do I need to use another crankset? And if this is indeed the case, will the X01 front chain ring that I've bought fit on this other crankset?

    If the shop's just spinning yarns, which bottom bracket do I need to use in order for my X01 crankset to work?

    Many thanks

    Oppsies first post I see. Building a bike frame with flaming torch or tig welding from a pile of raw tubes is not the same as building up a pre-bought frame with parts.
    Look over some of the posts on this thread and get the hang of it.
    Moderator please repost to appropriate thread.

    If you bought the X01 crankset with the GXP spindle, you'll just need this bottom bracket:
    Truvativ GXP Team bearing cups, 68/73mm - L/R set Retail $40.00

    If you bought the X01 crankset with the BB30 spindle that is for use only in frames with a BB30 or PF30 bottom bracket, then you're probably out of luck. Return it, and get the GXP version of the crankset.

    XO1 cranks are absolutely compatible with the SB66C, after all that's one of the stock build options. They just won't be compatible if you buy the wrong version. Hope that helped.

    This plus get the 168mm q-factor version.

    Got my Build started!!

    I got my new SB66c frame last week and this week I fin alt got time to start the build. At the point I am missing the drivetrain install, routing all cables and break lines and re-instal the rear tire in the correct direct (minor oversight) I will take bester photos when it's down, but here are a few of where it stands today.

    I also just picked up a new SB-66c. Still sitting in the box, patiently waiting for parts.

    Question: I'm considering sending in the Fox Float CTD rear shock into Push Industries before its first ride. How have folks experience been on the stock CTD with this bike? The shock will be paired with a new pike. I'm not really in a hurry to get it built up, I just want it to be dialed once I do. Thoughts?

    I would ride the CTD stock first, find out what you want different then look to tune it. I think the CTD is awesome and easy to add spacers to in order to ramp up the curve at the end. The SB has a nice linear feel and really opens up on big hits well, you will use all of your travel but if you don't notice bottom out then you are getting the most out of your suspension. I have a Float X now and it really opens up the bike.
