    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.

    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?

    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

    This is not just a bike, it's art on ****ing wheels. If I ended up with messed up paint it would keep me up at night. Good call on the clear stuff.

    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.
