Yeti SB5 T-Series Suspension Bike (XO1)The iconic Yeti SB5 has returned, now with modern geometry and awesome components to get you ahead of the race pack. The SB5 T-Series (Turq) tackles even the steepest climbs with ease and you'll be pushing yourself to ride faster than ever before on the downs thanks to its immense stability and control. Yeti achieved this performance boost by taking the design from last year’s SB5, then steepened the seat tube and slackened the headtube. The result of these changes is a bike that provides optimised pedalling performance and enduro-capable downhill prowess. An award-winning trail bike at its core, this mountain-shredder takes your riding ability to new levels and inspires you to spend more time in the mountains.

Love the bike but that 2nd shock to adjust the travel is in a California placement not in an Yorkshire mud placement
Voted hot anyway for the yeti love

I wish;)
The weight of the bike is incorrect; according to the Yeti website it weighs 12.86Kg without pedals. That extra 860Gms makes a difference!
I'm still sticking to my Scott because I love the Twinloc system.
If you want something super light then also look at KTM, as they have 2019 and 2020 full sus carbon bikes weighing approx 10.5Kg.
Good luck with the heat!

yep, id never buy one, fancy the new tallboy, but the shocks not that well placed for west yorkshire mud and the colour isnt matt black, so its a wait and see for me
If I had money burning in my pocket I'd buy one. Awesome bikes.
Have some heat,
Heat! What a bike!
Fantastic price, but spending that sort of money on a prebuild completely eludes me. You’re dropping preowned car money on a bike, at least get the parts you want.

Oh, are they used on mountains only and not on a road ever?

Fox factory forks and shock are as good as you are going to get, sell off the brakes and get some hopes simple enough , if you were to buy this to your own spec it will be significantly more than £4k

I haven’t rode for a while but on my last build, I very much favoured Pikes over my 36s.

But this is the point my trying to make, little things (such as a cane creek headset, yeti bars, forks etc) are little things that all add up to loads of replacement parts later to make it your own. I really think it’s better to buy for you, once.

Regardless, I’m not disputing the fact this is a good deal. It really is.

It depends some people just want the shiny new bike others want it perfect, there are frame only £2k options on crc at the moment too but you’d be hard pressed to build a similiar spec for this price.

My second to last bike I bought as a D spec and sold off everything but the frame, stem, grips, crankset and wheels/tyres ,
it came in cheaper than buying the frame
These are for the rich dudes. Unfortunately I'm not one of them. But heat.

The SC VPP system is amazing
i thought 4100 was a lot for a bike, then i saw reduced from 7100! if you buy this, make sure you glue the bike to you as it will bound to get stolen!
What CC is this?
Nice bike - right spec at a good price. Love the colour too - will be interesting if it affects 2nd hand values...

Don’t understand the comments about mud - fit a snap on race guard and it’ll keep most mud and grit off that shock. I’ve got an FSR Enduro S Works with a similar position Ohlins shock and no issues. It’ll be fine, kit your bike for the conditions

The switch infinity has had many problems in the UK, especially in the peaks , many forums saying they love yeti but hate the after sales issues

I can believe it - but look after the bike and I’m sure the shock can be protected?

I've got a previous gen TB and absolutely love it. Using an offset headset to slacken the steerer to what the current generation use, but otherwise it's still a superb bike. It eats upper linkage bearings (lower ones use grease ports and last much longer), but as these are free from Jungle (yey!), it's no big problem to swap them every year or so.

Works well in the filth though. Warning: you might find this photo offensive:
