fun never looked so good
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
XC bikes are not my thing so I had no problem with taking the Yeti SB100 out for a weekend of tech climbing, loam carving in the trees with a little rock garden smashing thrown in. I don't feel the SB100 is a true XC bike, I think it's built for someone who likes to go out and have a great time ripping it up no matter the terrain. Sure you probably don't want to enter the local enduro, but you could! The Version I got to ride in our demo fleet was a Large ( a bit big for me i'm a medium in Yeti) with AXS X01 Eagle, Factory shock, I9 Hydra 310 Carbon wheels and a Helm Fork, yeah I did feel a bit spoiled! I really enjoyed the bike and also had the Pivot Trail 429 at the same time. The Yeti was able to make me feel almost invincible on the tech climbs, maybe that was Hydra help who knows. I was punching it up everything I could find and just generally ripping and pedaling as hard as I could. It just never felt like I was going fast enough, now granted I was flying (for me) and pushing it everywhere I could. Not once did this bike ever let me down. I would say the only negative thing in my opinion is that it just didn't feel as light and playful as the other bikes that I've ridden in the same class. Now it's not a weight thing as I've weighed each one and the Yeti was a touch lighter, so maybe it was the size. Take all this with a grain of salt as ALL the bikes are really good and it's not like you can pick a bad one anyway. If you really want to narrow it down, buy the bike that looks like you want to go out and ride it! What's that you say, you don't want to take my word for it? Well then feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll check the demo tour in your area and we'll get you out on one. Pros: Begs you to go faster Efficient pedaling Feels like it has more travel than it does Cons: More tire clearance would love to fit a 2.6" Feels heavy (it's not) High Speed corner exits (probably due to the frame size) Rider Details: 5'9" 32" Inseam / 180 lbs.

If I could only have one bike...
- I've put it through the wringer
This would be the one. I have put almost 1500 miles on my SB100 over the past 1.5 years. It’s fast, smooth, light (mine is 24.5 lbs), and did I mention fast. I’ve been riding MTBs for 25 years and have ridden/owned a lot of MTBs, the SB100 is the finest short travel one I’ve owned. Though it’s only 100mm of rear travel, it feels like 120. With a 120mm fork, it feels like a trail bike with more capability than your typical XC bike. I would by this bike again tomorrow. I currently have a Pivot LES 29 and a Yeti SB140 as well but if the house was on fire and I could get one of my bikes out in time, the SB100 would be the one I’d save first. I ride a mix of rocky and sand over hardback southwestern desert, and routinely climb and descend thousands feet on most rides - it does both extremely well. The switch infinity is a super stable platform which is solid when hammering the climbs and super smooth on rocky descents. Thanks for a great bike.

This is 'THE' mountain bike.
- I've used it several times
Here's my elevator pitch on the SB100: It's an incredibly capable short travel trail bike that can be made race-able with the right spec. If you're a leg-shaving, Strava-obsessing, powermeter-owning racer like me, the Blur, Mach 4 SL, or RKT are probably better options. This bike is not quite as sharp, light, or snappy as any of the aforementioned options, but it's also not a bike for a hardcore Enduro racer. While the SB100 is easily the most capable 100mm bike on the market, it's still a 100mm bike. It's going to be outgunned on bigger drops and super chunky chutes. If you really want to set records downhill, this probably won't cut the mustard. So, you ask, who is this bike for then? Everyone else. Yeti knows that the vast majority of riders are not looking to break records every time they go out on a ride. They know that the hardcore XC and Enduro segments are actually relatively small subsets of the market. Most riders drive to the bottom of a trailhead, climb for a while, descend for a little bit, and then start climbing again. They know that while most of us ride fairly technical trails, the guys who spend all of their time on the double blacks are already sold on their SB150s, Megatowers, and Ripmos. In the same way that the average rider probably doesn't need 160mm of travel to ride his local trails, he also probably doesn't need a 71* headtube angle. This is the beauty of the SB100; it's remarkably efficient and impressively light for a bike of its caliber. You can absolutely run XC tires and take it out to the Tuesday night race, but it's happiest on the 40 mile Saturday group ride that involves hours of climbing that would suck on an all-mountain bike, and descents that would give you traditional XC bike a wedgie and take it's lunch money. The SB100 I rode was set up with a Trust fork, XX1 AXS drivetrain, Industry Nine Trail 270 wheels, and Schwalbe Magic Mary/Nobby Nic combo. In this spec, it felt like a baby Enduro bike. I was amazed at how confidence-inspiring the front end was. Paired with the Trust fork, the amount of stability and grip was mind-blowing. The Switch-Infinity suspension out back manages small-bump chunk incredibly well, and the angles are wonderfully balanced for a stable-yet-nimble vibe. To me, it felt sharper than a Tallboy or a Trail 429, but not quite as plush. In my mind, that's not a bad thing. If I'm going to surrender my XC bike's nimble character, I want to get a significant amount of capability in return, and 100-120mm bike can rarely offer that. The Yeti honestly gives you both. I know that "quiver-killer" is a grossly overused cliche in this industry, but the Yeti SB100 is truly deserving of that characterization. It's the literal manifestation of the "do it all" mountain bike. Yeti absolutely nailed it. Statistically-speaking, this is probably the right bike for you.
