Peter Nwrote a review of Yeti Cycles SB5+ Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 on October 22, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
As the copy above kind of stated, the SB5+ is a great jack of all trades kind of bike. I mostly used mine for trail riding, but with a 150mm fork and a slacker headtube angle I had no problems with taking it on lift service and hitting some downhill trails. Obviously the biggest selling point of this frame is the plus (2.8 and 3.0) tire clearance capability. I ran mine with 2.8s and loved the amount of traction it gave me when Utah trails got all blown out and dusty. I stuck a big honking Minion DHF on the front and Rekon in the back, in hindsight I'd probably go with a tire with a bit faster knobs up front since the grip with a 2.8 is so good anyway. The switch infinity suspension is one of my favorites as it ramps up really hard towards the end of the travel, making it seem like it has way more travel than the 127mm on paper might indicate. This frame could also be a good option if you're looking for a good deal on a previous year model but also want to run more conventional 2.6 tires, as the MY18 SB5 can't clear 2.6s.
