    Default The new to me Yeti SB95C

    I picked this up as a frame and fork a few months ago from the originally owner (top guy) as he upgraded to the new SB5.5. It's in mint condition and allowed me to put my own spin on things.

    I was planning on upgrading from my Anthem 27.5 to the new 120/110 Anthem as I chasing a little more travel, but the lure of something a little exotic couldn't be resisted. Only issue being its a large size, I've gone over the geo with a fine tooth comb and whilst I'm on the smaller side of the Yeti sizing for large (178cm) my Anthem is a medium and is on the tighter side.

    I'm running a 50mm stem on the Yeti and when compared to the 90mm stem on the Anthem the measurement from the front of the seat to the handlebar is the same. 170mm cranks instead of the 175mm on the Giant also help "shrink" the bike. The build isn't finished as yet, most likely when I'm back from holidays in Feb.

    Looking good!
    You'll forget your Anthem ever existed soon enough.
    If I rode a fixie and nobody saw it, was it still cool?

    Nice, that should go up, across and down equally well.

    The Anthem has been a great bike, just clicked over 10k. The Yeti has got a lot to live up to. If it's too #enduro for me, I'll move it on and heads towards a 110mm XC bike . That's the reasoning for the parts spec also, build it like it should be, might even modify the fork into the 140mm version. I'm expecting I'll like it however. Do I need matching Yeti tribe socks also?

    Thanks for the comments burners.

    Nice looking bike.

    Where are you based? I'm pretty sure I have a WTB Yeti saddle floating around in the garage somewhere.
