Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my personal favorite. A great balance of having a long travel bike that climbs super well thanks the the 29er wheels and the XO1 groupset.

My past bikes have been a SC Bronson and a Yeti SB6. I was more interested in the 27.5" but was always curious about how well a 29er would perform. I have zero regrets making the switch. My SB5.5 climbs so much better than my SB6, but I liked my SB6 more than my Bronson. I felt the SB6 climbed better than the Bronson.

The one thing I've noticed that the SB5.5 doesn't do as well as the SB6 I had was cornering. It's a little more sluggish in corners than the SB6, but that is really the only down fall I've found. The benefits of being able to roll over anything, a smoother and more efficient uphill makes it all worth it. Plus I've switched up a couple things in how I handle corners

I swapped an 18T on my Yeti SB5,5 for a 54T and am mega happy with the faster engagement.

This is super easy to install. No tools required if you have a quick release axle.

Just make sure to go easy on the grease. Too much grease is a bad thing. And with the finer teeth on the 54T, too much grease can cause the teeth to wear out faster.

For applying grease, try finding a small/fine paint brush to get an even coating of it in the hard to get to parts.
