JBwrote a review of Yeti Cycles SB4.5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2017 on June 29, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I spent several months researching what bike I wanted to purchase and landed on this or the 5.5. I ended up going with the 4.5 due to the amount of climbing I do. I got this bike in an XL with me being 6ft 3in 185lbs. The only thing that I have changed on the bike is my stem length. I went from a 50mm to a 35mm and the bike fits like a glove. I have put over 300 miles and almost 27000 of elevation gain. All the reviews don't lie this bike is a climbing machine. I never lock out my suspension on this bike. I'm not sure what else to say about the bike it was worth every hard earned penny I spent on it. I ended up doing a custom build and Andrew Meehan helped me out and was even looking at bike dimensions that competitive cycles doesn't sell when describing what I liked/didn't like about different bikes. He was also on the taller side of your typical rider which was very useful I highly recommend him for anyone help you need on a bike. If you have specific questions fire away. Final thought is this bike rocks! would buy again.
