    Yeti SB75

    Is anyone still riding a Yeti SB75? I have been suffering with a 29" Giant hardtail for the last 6 years. I love the lightness and speed. I have upgraded everything so it's pretty much a light rocket ship, but age is making me look at FS. My previous bike was a Yeti 575 that I adored, but sadly broke the frame a year past warranty.

    Anyway, I have a chance to pick up a SB75 with plenty of quality upgrades in freakishly good shape, fairly cheap. $1800. I have a feeling the guy liked to spend money on his bike and not necessarily ride it.

    So how does this 27.5 compare to "newer" 27.5's?

    Personally, if I were looking to buy an older used bike I'd avoid one with proprietary parts like the Switch that will need replacing on a semi-regular basis. Also Yeti's seem (based on my casual observation, not hard fact) to have a higher incidence of cracked frames than other manufacturers, are you looking at carbon or alloy? If it's had minimal use that's probably a good sign, but you're going to have to replace bits like the Switch sooner or later.

    Still ride mine, still love it. If/when I get a new bike it will be a long travel 29er (SB5.5/ Transition Sentinel/ Pivot Switchblade), but I'm still loving this bike and am not in a hurry.
