Yeti announcing new bike tomorrow apparently…

I have heard that they are redesigning the SB66 for next year to stop the eating bearings issue.
This would make sense given the sponsored riders still mostly use the 66 rather than the 75.
Given that the SB66 was discontinued this yeat, I doubt that.Posted 3 years agocookeaaSubscriber
I like it…
But then (as discussed the other day) it will obviously suffer the opposite issue to an Orange in that it is a bit OTT in the fancy and technolomolical stakes… Buy it, love it for 18 months, flog it on before you have to sell a kidney to fund a new bearing kit…Posted 3 years ago
At first glance it looks vulnerable and over-complex.
Time will tell, but I wont be an early adopter.
All these bikes that chase a ‘perfect axle path’ which includes ant-squat chain growth certainly make me appreciate my Maverick with it’s completely neutral pedalling. I don’t really understand why there aren’t more alternatives.
The current GTs look interesting – I keep meaning to look at the theory behind them.Posted 3 years agocookeaaSubscriber
Cookeaa – the switch infinity bits have a 5 year warranty apparently!!
Then I revise my statement.
Buy it Love it for 4.5 years and flog it on before you have to sell a kidney to fund a replacement “switch infinity” kit…
Anyone owned a 303 long term? how did those get on?Posted 3 years agochiefgrooveguruMember
That’s very clever in terms of the kinematics – the old switch could only move the pivot in a semi-circle whilst this moves it in a diagonal line, so the system can be much better controlled. However it looks a nightmare if you ride anywhere with sticky mud (seems to be a pretty common thing in enduro racing on the natural trails!) and I doubt the 5 year warranty covers stanchion damage from filthy rides…Posted 3 years ago
