    The little Yeti character is now drifting instead of just standing there like on my 575


    I picked mine up from the Singletrack Factory
    Yeti SB95 Carbon Race config with a reverb and tubliss.
    Equates to:
    Frame: Large Yeti SB-95 C Turq / Black
    Fork: Fox 34 120 (will try this a bit before trying 140)
    Headset: Cane Creek
    Stem: Thomson 90mm
    Bars: Easton Haven Carbon
    Post: Reverb
    Saddle: Yeti Custom
    Brakes: Shimano XT
    Shifters: Shimano XT 10spd
    Front Der: Shimano XT
    Rear Der: Shimano XT 10spd
    Cranks/BB: Shimano XT
    Wheels: DT Swiss 350/XR400 - converted to tubeless.
    Pedals: ??? still deciding ???
    Tires: Maxxis


    Weight (with Reverb dropper, without pedals):


    I just went and took a bunch of random photos of it while it is clean:



    I'm diggin' how they left the carbon raw for the black with the Turqoise.












    I still need to decide on pedals and a bash guard.
    Also need to do some clear masking for protection. I really like how they built a skid plate into the front lower frame and already put protection on the swingarm near the chain.

    Enough clean pics.. time to go get it dirty.

    So glad I opted for the alu version... Don't think I'd ever take the carbon one out - it so elegant. Enjoy it!

    you know, i really can't afford to buy another bike, but if I could sell my wife's car then MAYBE ... that bike is soo danged nice ... the 'organic' version of the 'industrial' version that preceded it.

    The saddle came with the "Race" edition of the bike.
    Yeti refers to it as a "YETI CUSTOM". I'm not sure who makes it for them.

    Thanks for the pics Geek. I'm used to seeing WTB saddles spec'd on Yetis but this doesn't look like any current WTB. It looks good though.

    Fantastic looking bike, I'm really looking forward to getting mine which will be one of the first in the UK.

    Are any of you guys considering some kind of frame protection in the form of helicopter type tape? Am I just being anal about it and should I just ride it without worrying about the finish?!

    Yeti SB95 Carbon Build / Photo Thread

    J: I'm definitely going to put some on in the normal places. The swing arm has built in 'bumpers':



    But I think I'll add some more protection where my heal will likely rub.

    The front of the frame also has a replaceable rock/skid plate



    These photos are live btw - lol
    We are out on a ride right now and just stopped for lunch

    Thanks for posting, that's really cool! I hope you're having a good ride, although I'm absolutely sure you are on that new ride of yours!

    I'm talking to these guys who will be releasing a full frame kit soon:

    Heel rub on rear tri, maybe some more tape on back of seat tube to protect from tire/crap.

    Another shout out to the Singletrack Factory in Denver. Brian & Harley will take care of you. They ride bikes if ya know what I mean. Ok, enough with the shameless promotion. They are hooking me up with a large Yeti SB95C. Build as follows: SRAM XX1 28 tooth, Enve AM, Shimano XT stoppers, dropper TBA. With pedals should be around 27 lbs. Wifey is getting a Ripley (Sorry not Yeti content).
    Been riding my 95A for a while now and can't imagine a better one bike quiver for me. I'm around 2500 miles now and this bike flat out performs. It's difficult to design a suspension that works well in varying terrain. The Switch flat out works. Hey Chris does being an OSU Varsity alumni get me any free Yeti swag.LOL

    What an awesome pic! I occasionally do the same, put the bike in the van and hope I get to ride it during the day, it almost happened today until my front mech started giving me trouble 1.5 miles into the ride!

    My next bike! Just curious on the sizing, I have ridden large 575, and Im riding a large Big Top now. I have heard that I could probably drop to a medium SB95. Thoughts? Great pics by the way!!
    "Im just going to explore a little bit..."

    Dont make me be the bad guy...

    Do I need a pass to ride this trail?

    Rode both the 95a and 95c on demos, and own/ride a large BT and 66a. If you are happy with the feel of your BT, stick with large. No question.

    when I was sizing to purchase last year the only yeti in my area I could put a leg over was a large big top. the shop was surprised, because I had decided based on lots of research and my other bikes that large was the way to go for me, but after getting me on the bike they agreed that it was the right size.

    i've had my sb95 since last june and the large is definitely the right one for me. if I had the small I'd need a longer than stock stem, and the cockpit would feel wrong.

    just saw both Turq and black in person and having second thoughts on color!
    The black semi gloss is awesome and shows the carbon weaver better than turq.

    Geek: how tall are you. I demo'd a Large and XL at Wheat Ridge and can't decide. I'm 6'2 and "should" be a Large but the ETT comes in at 24.1 which is a little shorter than I'd like while the XL comes in at 24.9. Just wondering if you straddle the sizes like I do.

    I saw the carbon Black Frame w/Turq lettering the other day out on the trail. Awesome color. Very noticeable as well. The "Yeti" really stands out.

    I'm Geek's size and I think you would fit better on an XL especially if you want to run shorter than an 80mm stem. I'm on a large with a 70mm stem.

    I went Turquoise and really don't regret it. To me Yeti= Turquoise, but I will say that I'm a tad paranoid about scratching the paint as most of my other carbon bikes have been flat finish and this one is very glossy. Looks great in person

    It's really a win win though because this bike hauls major ass and that won't change even if it was pink with unicorns all over it.

    Thanks! I definitely confirmed this by going down to the Singletrack Factory and riding a L and XL alloy. I'll be putting in an order for an XL Enduro build either tomorrow or next week. So much stoke.

    You made the right choice.

    Geek: I have helicopter taped the shizz out of mine as well: Downtube, seat tube, upper and lower chainstays(inner and outer), yoke. I am considering doing the top tube as well since I don't want my shorts rubbing it.

    I know, I know. It's a bike, it's supposed to be dirty and beat to hell. Well I will get it dirty(currently is such), but I want her to still look good when she's all cleaned up

    I'm using helicopter tape that I got thru Amazon. I also have some Shelter tape which is much thicker and would be good for downtube protection.

    I'm hearing rumors that some people are reporting being able to extend the stock 120mm fork out to 140. A local shop said some bros are just cutting down the bumper manually. Anyone have any experience with this yet?

    Called Yeti's tech guy on the subject and he was unclear as to whether or not it could be done.

    Fox 34 should be extendable to 140mm. Mine came that way stock, have it currently set at 130mm, which you can do with spacers. To get it down to 120mm on the current year's version of the 34 requires new internals, $50 or so from Fox, so to get a 120mm up to 140 likely also requires new internals.

    But yes, I'm almost 100% sure it's doable, just needs some parts and labor.
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    Thanks for the info. I'm also now reading on Pinkbike that Fox will offer 2014 internals for 2013 forks. It's only $35 for the upgrade kit, hoping this is all I need but I'll call them to verify.

    just say a black frame in person and the carbon is so sexy! I had my heart and mind made up on a Turq for sure until now! The paint covers the sexy carbon grain and the semi gloss finish just makes it better! Way better than sb66C imho

    The race config is Shimano XT 2x in the front.
    I think it is an M785?

    Does anyone know of a bash ring that's compatible or an ISCG taco? Due to the shape of the cranks/mounts I'm not sure that a "normal style" bash ring would fit?

    We ride some local rock gardens and I've had a few teeth strikes recently.

    2013 SB95c Enduro XL on order as of yesterday. Yeti may have one they can ship out right now, otherwise it's looking like 2 weeks or so. I also ordered those super cute little crank boots in turq. Thanks for the link!

    Large SB95C Build

    Here's my new baby. Just a few additions/updgrades....Mavic Crossmax ST Wheelset, Reverb seatpost, Specialized Saddle, XTR pedals. Weighed it last night at 28.9 lbs. I left the fork at 120mm.....it's been plenty of travel so far on some pretty chunky riding. Haven't pushed it super hard yet though on really technical terrain. Have tried both 70mm and 90mm stems and can't decide which I like better. I'm 6'0", 170 lbs with shortish torso and monkey arms.

    The SB 95 carbon looks very awesome (in both colours anyway).

    Keep 'm posting. Enjoy your rides in the meantime.

    Just picked mine up at GBS - aka Golden Bike Shop. Great shop with an excellent vibe.
    Build:
    XL turquoise
    Full xtr group - 36/28, xtr trail brakes, etc
    Fox 34 120
    DT swiss 240 laced to Stan's Arch EX
    Lev 125 post
    Fizik tundra 2 braided gummy black saddle
    Time carbon pedals
    Stock tires - ikon 2.2, ardent 2.4....tubeless
    Parts that could change: 90 mm stem to 70 and Haven to Havoc.
    Have not weighed it yet. Guessing around 27lbs.

    So far the set up feels very nice. The way this bike handles is truly confidence inspiring.
    I love the way this bike pedals compared to my sold TallboyC. I can't say it's faster, but it feels more efficient.

    Hi rianclay - nice!!!!
    How tall are you. I'm 6' 2" and straddling the L or XL. I know the only way is to ride one but here in the UK dealers are a bit sparse. Cheers.

    Thanks.
    6'2.5". I demoed the large and for me it was too small. For the AM set up I prefer a shorter stem and wider bar approach. My Tallboy was a large and I had to set it up with a setback post and 110 stem to get comfortable. The Yeti size XL just feels right- more balanced and natural to me.
    I could have made the large Yeti work, but it would have required a setback post. And, I wanted to run the Lev dropper.
    For those other front range riders in CO, I just rode White Ranch and the bike is perfectly built for this terrain.

    Pics? How long did you have yours on order or did they just happen to have it in stock? I've had mine on order for a week at The Singletrack Factory in Denver and they are not sure when they will take delivery as Yeti is just kinda getting them in sporadically.

    I heard that a batch of XLs came through about 2 weeks ago and I placed the order after demoing an XL aluminum for three days. GBS had the bike for a week before they could build it.

    That's put my head straight. Thank you my friend. I've also got a 2011 Tallboy C Large, which is my main bike apart from a single speedy, and I've always been cramped and too far over the front for my liking. Previous steed sworks stumpy 26.
    But kept coming a cropper due to the low BB, so it was a good excuse to the wife to change to a 29er!!
    So I'm definitely going for the SB95C XL yippee.......once I've decorated the kids bedrooms! Keep me updated on any blips you think I should know about and have a BLAST! Cheers. J.

    Can you provide cliff notes on how to post pics to this site? I'm sure it's easy, but I've never done it here on MTBR.

    Mate, I'm a newie myself. Only joined to make sure I was making the right choice going from Santa Cruz to Yeti. Get to/see feedback, as it's a f**king bigger dent in my already overstretched bank account. Luv to see some pics of your 95 though!
    Cheers

    Go to Imgur.com. Upload your photos, copy the "BBC Code" on the right after the photo is uploaded, then paste that in the text field here.

    Looks awesome with the enve wheels. Find some turquoise stickers for the "enve" logos and it would look super pimp.

    What would everyone's thoughts be on running CB Cobalt 2 wheels on the 95-C or 95-A? Looking at a combination of trail riding and the occasional XC marathon in Australia.

    That looks so badass! Is that a 140 or 150mm Pike? Also which offset did you go with?

    I am looking for a good deal on a SB95C (medium Black or Turquoise) for a special project. Contact me at akarnold1 (at) ca (dot) rr (dot) com if you have a lead or recommendation. New or lightly used would work and retailer or individual is ok as well. TA

    Bubblegum

    Took me a while - mine was in the shop for a bit after the derailleur decided to have a play in the spokes. The bolt that keeps the derailleur hangar pointed down sheared off and the hanger got ripped around along with the derailleur - damaging the rear triangle in the process.

    Shoutout to Golden Bike Shop and Yeti for taking care of it, some companies would have called that a "crash replacement" and charged me for user error (there was none, I was literally just riding along), Yeti warrantied the frame with a new rear triangle and got it turned around in just a few days.

    Here she is!

    Build is mostly stock XT, Reverb dropper, 780mm Iodine carbon bars, chinese carbon rims from light-bicycle.com and Chris King hubs. Fork is the Fox 34 currently set at 130mm.



    The 95c is too rad, best bike ever. Definitely made a Yeti fan for life here.
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    So far so good. They've got a few gouges in them from rocks and such, but they're still going strong. I had them add some extra layers of carbon to bring them up to 430 grams/rim since I'm 200+ pounds with gear.

    I haven't had them but a couple months, but they're way stiffer than my old Arch EX wheelset.

    Your rear triangle was getting replaced the day I picked up mine. I agree, the bike is redonkulously fun!
    What length stem are you running? Did you have the bike set up as stock? If so, how does the handling differ?

    50mm at first, now 70mm. Bike was super wheelie happy at 50 with the seat pushed back, better now but I'm still getting used to the extra gears. I was running 1x9 before.

    I'm 6'1 on a large frame.

    Got her dirty today, first shakedown run. Shimano brakes and drivetrain are impressive. The suspensions setup is off a bit.Yeti SB95 Carbon Build / Photo Thread-imag0006.jpg

    I finally got my SB done late last night , I have to attempt to put some protection on the frame in several places and hopefully get in a ride tomorrow ,

    I will attempt to get a pic or too on here if I can .

    Patreek I love your black one, the thing looks really cool.

    I could not get the black when I ordered mine , oh well the turq is growing on me .

    this is my first 29er , I hope I dont tear it up to badly in all the hack and crap we ride in here .

    Here is my SB , this was the first ride day and I really liked the bike .
    This build is 27.5 lbs with the smaller 2.2 Geax TNT tires on it, I love the way that this 29er is very close to 26er handling , I will go to a 50mm stem and 30" riser bars to suit me .
    The suspension was very plush ripping through the hack and the thing climbed while in the open position all day.
    This is by far one of the best suspensions I have tested .
    I just did not like the 29er when you get them stalled out alittle on a steep ass killer climb it is harder to get going again , to where on the 26er you can go really slow and rest and still keep it going with less pressure at the pedal.

    So I just need to keep it rolling 1 mph faster and all is smooth and well !

    Lord God "Just J" you have been waiting longer than I did for your bike , I really hope you get yours quickly because I was getting bummed waiting and waiting and I had to keep riding my thrashed beat up bike.

    It was down right painful ......I can't wait for you to ride your new bike !

    Lol thanks! We don't tend to get things at the front of the queue in the UK when it comes to US boutique bikes! Must admit I'm getting a bit excited/sick of waiting now, I ordered the frame the day after the press releases and showed an interest months before that even! Still, my Yeti dealer organised a sweet loaner in the form of a Trek Stache 8 as I sold my other bike. So that's pretty cool of them!

    That was a fun ride getting caught in the rain like we did , that really helped cool the 100 degree temp down to 95 .( even tho the humidity hurt worse once we dried out )

    I still think your Carbon Bronson with the Enve I9s , the modded 165 mm 34 and the XX1 is actually the Cats Meow ......And its Tennis Yellow to boot !

    Thats is really cool that they lent you a nice bike , I also ordered the frame and shock right after the release of the carbon , I was wanting the black but after many weeks they said i could only get Turq in XL so thats what I got .
    but it seems you will be up and going soon !!
