    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.

    Here are a couple of close up pics:

    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.

    I have an MRP XCG that gets used regularly, mounted on the spline. Works great.

    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!

    it may be a version of WTB Volt..but I remember hearing Yeti was moving away from WTB towards another brand for their saddles

    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?
