    Has anyone running 65mm stroke actually made tire and seatpost contact?

    Iím running 65 with an offset bushing to give it a little more clearance. I think contact without the offset would be close and subject to what tire youíre running. Add some mud in the mix and itís a little too tight for my taste.

    I modified my 65 to get 63mm of stroke. In my tests with the 65, with Assegai 2.5WT, they hit the ST at full compression

    Cool, so sounds like increasing stroke by 2.5mm to 62.5 overall will work.
    I will be able to confirm when my new 2021 Fox Float X2 arrives at 230x57.5 , my local Suspension Co. is going to machine down the spacers to go from 57.5 to 62.5.

    The shock should be arriving early to mid May....Iíll report back.

    That is exactly what YETI FOX Team rider Richie Rude does too.

    He is 5'10', and rode a 5.5 in size Large

    Now, in the SB150, he sized down to a Medium

    He felt the 'feel' was his decision maker

    With his access to any frame size and components, probably the most honest feedback and opinion you can gather...

    I'm 5'10" went with the Medium, was on a Large Sb6. On paper they were literally the same geo.
    But I felt the same twitchy-ness of the front end but it had teh 50mm already. Secondly I feel like the bike pushes you forward and I feel way too forward to as how much tucked the offset of the fork is.

    I'm 5'10 as well. I debated the large SB150 frame size- so glad I went with the medium, it's perfect. Was it on this thread I saw that post from Jared graves on how too many people are riding too big a frame these days? I think he's spot on.

    Taking a pro downhiller's opinion on bike size should be be put in to context of how many of them start in disciplines like bmx where you're on a smaller bike. I'd venture most of us are on longer bikes than we were 5 years ago. I certainly can't imagine going back to a large with a 445mm reach like I had in 2014.

    Thereís a difference though: Ąlargeď bike in absolute terms or Ąlargeď as per manufacturerís recommendation?
    Up to a certain point, you can get used to a Ąwrongď size anyhow as long as you can still handle the bike somehow.

    By the way, any Ąkey aspectsď to the size apart from nimbleness for the smaller and stability for the larger frame?

    ok, now I found it.... on Seth's youtube vid, simply use some black tape around the cable to stop it from rubbing the frame....I thought it would be something more sophisticated ....

    Does the sb150 come with the clear protective frame kit or do you have to purchase it separately.

    mine did, although it's not very thick so I added some extra layers in some spots on the frame...

    I see Cascade components have a new link on the way to add 5mm additional travel and extra progression to the SB150.

    Does the Oneup 210mm dropper fit all the way in the frame on a size large? Thoughts and experience is welcomed.

    Will the Cascade link change the geo of the bike?

    Increased rear travel by 5mm. Closer leverage progression to sb165 so would make it better suited to run a coil.

    Iím running a 62.5 mm stroke shock to get 157mm travel.
    Clearance is more than fine.

    I will also end up trying the cascade link

    Anyone know whether Yeti will spec the 150 with the new Fox 38 or 36? And what the timeline could be for the new Fox gear being sent out with new bikes?

    I was looking at grabbing a 150 a month or so ago and reached out to Yeti. More or less said they didnít have any idea because there were major delays and lack of supply for the 21í Fox stuff. Iím holding out until mid-summer to see. Didnít indicate 36 or 38.

    Iím 5í8Ē and and right at home on a Large.


    Wondering if anyone has tried a 230x62.5 shock, I feel like the extra 2.5mm of stroke will work and thus increase the rear travel from 150mm to 157mm.
    Anyone give this a try yet?


    Thanks for any input and everyone stay healthy.
    Wow! Talk to me! I'm 5'9 (5'10 with shoes) and ordered a 2019 Large SB150 a few weeks ago. Expecting delivery in a week. Pondered the sizing charts and geo, but I've ridden all frames Large and felt great. What year is your rig?

    Iím on a 2020, all SB150 are the same expect for paint and build kits.
    I got used to my Specialized Enduro 2020 S3 that has a 1248 wheel base but less reach.
    However I got to thinking that the large SB150 is worth a try being that the seat tube on the Yeti is so steep and fights off sag thanks to the switch infinity.
    Iím glad I did...I sold my Enduro and am in love with the bigger SB150.
    Iím a wanna-be semi serious enduro racer and this bigger bike has made me a better rider overall.

    I have exactly the same as you. Currently I've been home in Colombia for the past 7 weeks avoiding all the stupidity back in the USA and I have a 2020 Enduro S3 for my riding in Manizales but back in the States I have a Large SB150 for the past 18 months and The SB150 just does everything slightly better for me although the Enduro really does excel in Chunky terrain with it's active kinematics but damn the bike feels like a heavy pig compared to my SB150 which really gets up to speed quickly out of the saddle or just laying down the watts.
