Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Yeti SB66 is a Porsche of bikes and for good reason. I have ridden mine for the last two years and the only bike that has come close to the playful nature of this bike is the HDR. What makes this bike so great is the Switch technology which resides above the bottom bracket. These eccentric circles keep you high in the travel on the climbs making the 160mm of travel feel far less and turns this bike into a pretty efficient climber. On the descents, the Switch Technology sinks you a little further into the travel which makes you feel like you are sitting in the bike and allows for greater control. This bike only gets more stable at speed and begs to be ridden hard and fast. I am 5'11'' and the medium frame fits me perfectly. Yeti's run large so be warned. If you have any questions please give me a call, I would love to talk to you about this bike.

Here is my contact information: My direct line 801.736.6396 ex. 4389. Feel free call to me anytime, I?m always happy to talk about bikes or gear or the weather. Whatever works! I?m here Mon, Tues and Friday 1:30-10pm MST and Saturday 9-5:30 as well as Sunday 10-7. I look forward to speaking with you.

I'm 5'11'' and I got the 186cm. It took me a little bit to figure out how to ski a ski this large. Once I did, it was magical, they STOMP big airs and tricks. Float in powder? It's not even fair how easily you can pop up on top and they even hold their own in technical terrain and moguls. Typically I wouldn't ski moguls with the ski this big, but with the automatics I will lap mogul runs all day long! This ski is confidence inspiring on natural lips and jumps, they are so stable in the air and give such a big landing platform that I can go bigger than I have been able to before.

The tread on this tire has a very low rolling resistance which makes it ideal for a back tire. I like running the smaller 2.25 in the back with a larger and more knobby tire in the front. They are the only tires I would run in Utah and Colorado where the trails can get pretty rocky. I have never had any sidewall issues with any Maaxxis tires. They are also very light which is nice for acceleration when you need to boost past your friends to show off a little bit. They are a very predictable tire. A Highroller 2.4 or a Minion DHF 2.5 in the front and you have great grip and cornering ability on the trails.

If you have big hands, then these are the grips for you. Not only do they provide great grip and cushion, the larger size makes holding onto the handlebars as your heart skips a beat as you fly over a cliff just a little bit easier, by far my favorite grips.

If you have been converted to riding in bibs instead of just chamois shorts you will love these bibs. Fox makes a bib for a MTBer's and you can bet that all the pros are rocking bibs under their baggies. These fit true (american sizes) and they hold everything more securely. They are pretty awesome and I would recommend these to every Enduro riders.

This is my go to piece of gear when the weather gets cold and I want to go ride my bike around in the snow. It keeps my ears warm while the top of my head can still breathe. I build up a lot of heat when I ride so these are perfect for me. Now if there was some sort of nose cover....

It's no secret that Shimano makes the best clipless pedals, they also make the best cleats. They are so durable. I've been riding the same pair for the last two years and they are still in great shape. They can definitely stand up to the abuse of the trail. A great buy!

These shorts are great. They are breathable, durable, fit true to size and are pretty light weight. They come with a chamois that is good not great but definitely wearable. Sometimes I use these shorts as a bathing suit too, if a long ride ends near a body of water. They look like normal shorts so I can always walk into a store to get some icecream too.

I've been riding these for a few months and I can say these are really great shorts. The material is super burly and can take any and every fall you can throw at them. The material on the inner leg is thinner and more stretchy to allow for more easy pedaling. They are kind of thick so they are definitely better for colder riding. Also there are no pockets which isn't a big deal. All in all, these shorts are great

I loved these shorts when I first got them. They run big, I'm 5'11'' 160 pounds with a 32in waist and the small fit me perfect. The medium was too large. The pads are placed so you don't feel them when you are pedaling. I would happily take them on long climbs. However, after a few months of riding they stretched out and don't fit me like they used to. I still wear them but things move around a little more than they should if you catch my drift. All in all a pretty good short.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I spent the last six weeks doing blind power testing on Q-rings, Osymmetrics and circular chainrings. There wasn't a significant difference between the circular and the q-rings. So if you are trying to increase your power, I would just hit the trainer harder. Also you are likely to experience problems shifting with these rings
