    Let’s have a look at the new Yeti SB160. It’s been over four years since the SB150 launched so it’s about time for new enduro-a-go-go bike.

    Finally, the 17% leverage rate we’ve all been waiting for.

    Prices quoted are frame only, I’d guess?

    “the demands of the shorter travel SB120”

    SB115 replacement on the way…?

    eeeek – its going to be close to £5k for a frame only option if the US frame only version is $5k

    really quite insane and scary! whats annoying is its the first time with the number of changes theyve made (tyre clearance, threaded bb, UDH, size specific chainstays etc etc) that i would actually be quite interested in buying one, but the price is absolutely insane – might end up going down the 2nd hand route in a years time unless dealers are offering daft amounts of money off

    ‘We wanted to keep the slightly less breaky Switch Infinity system back,for the 5k frames, so the peasants who buy the cheaper version of our still very expensive bikes get punished for being cheap. We know they’ll love building a close relationship with our warranty department ‘

    Get in the pissing sea.

    Our patented, two-piece wishbone shock extender is used on the SB140 and SB160

    Reading between the lines I guess Yeti have revised the SB115, SB130 and SB150 then. SB120, SB140 and SB160. Looking forward to seeing the former.

    Interested to see if the new Switch doofer will be handed out for warranty replacement of the old one…

    Pricing is nuts for a frame only but I guess with their rear triangle breaking history you need to also pay upfront for the warranty replacement..

    Rumour has it one comes in the box,.

    The pricing is madness, there is no way there is $9k of value there at all, where is the motor. Makes a discounted Kenevo SL seem good value!
    I’ll bring up the old comparison to the motorcycle world: https://www.wheelsmotorcycles.co.uk/honda/new-bikes/adventure/nc750x-dct

    A REACH FOR AGILITY

    A more neutral position keeps riders weighting both wheels more evenly. This makes the bike more agile and sprightly. New reach numbers also scale with travel of each bike.

    Sounds like a way of saying ‘shorter reach than before’?

    Not a bad thing if so, was wondering when this aspect might get pulled back or where it would settle.

    How in the world does Yeti pricing still shock anyone?

    i know but even in the crazy world of inflation these days, £5k for a frame only, it was only just over a year ago the rrp was around 3299 (may have been 3599 or very close but you get the jist) but thats one hell of a ask – its completely priced me out and i have no kids!!!

    Bonkers pricing but I guess you have to pay up front for the multiple switch infinity systems you will need replacing and, as with SC, replacement frames when they snap
