Yeti SB75 - Review
Reading the thread, I think that sales guy is making a convenient truth to try and diffuse a group of disappointed customers. I can easily be satisfied if somebody could add something beyond what that guy says(low pre sale, we cancelled). Is that the whole picture or just spin? I think sb66 was cut dramtically/prematurely and current 2014/14 inventory dumped to avoid risk of not being up on the latest wheel size bandwagon in 2015. Probably right after the 650 think tank sent the new projection.. man are those think tank guys shoving it at us..Yeti were probably very fearful of losing market on another wheelsize shift ever since their 29r positioning. Obviously deeight you just accept what they told you at face value, that is fine for you, but i wanted a little more. I thought you or somebody else might have known something special about the move. Instead it is just the same news but with lots of condescension, pokes and insults.

Ok. Tell me what you think my point is? I think my point is that the SB-66 was not as much of a poorly selling product as is being made out to be and that it was dropped so yeti could jump on the 659bandwagon. You wanted to know if a company would drop one currently profitable product line to focus on a new one that they decided will be the future. The answer is clearly "yes". Or to put it the other way. What company waits until actual sales are only a dozen(less than 10% of normal)?

Thanks d8 for parroting that up with no further insight. It sort of proves my point. I mean you are quoting their bookings, not actual sales? The sales are what will be interesting. Do you know how many sb-75 were sold so we have a comparison? Nice that you are here to catch trolls... Smike... Companies ditch currently profitable products all the time due to fear of being left behind, seeming outdated and not innovative. Everybody wants to get on the bandwagon before it is "too late" ... Fear like that produces some crazy shit.

Hold on. Cancel that request, it was rhetorical anyways. I know you haven't those facts and it is likely you just made the sb66 cheapshot about pipe-dreams and "low" sales to troll people. I don't want to feed you.

That was sub-par chest puffing. Not interested though. Please show me the numbers for the specific model we are talking about and defend your claim.

Deeight, what exactly were those yeti sales numbers btw? Maybe you are just a parroting "facts" provided to you? Looks to me like they still sold quite a few sb66 to places like competitive so don't be swallowing the bait so easy. Could be they're just jumping on a bandwagon and had to cut a model!

650B Think Tank
Let me help you here. If every rider has 650b, just like every xc rider has 29, the finishing results will be same relative positions if they all rode 36". If a bike is really what makes racers fast(as these ppl have convinced you of) then everybody will have just buy that bike. Advantage goes bye bye. Now ask who sold you guys all those bikes? Who profited? It wasn't you because you're finishing same spot in the field. Besides the reason you are slightly slower than another guy has nothing todo with your wheel-size, unless you are a world cup level athlete then i apologize. ;)

650B Think Tank
...and when everybody has 650b and the same times who will have profit? Besides, sewerrat, the reason you're slower isn't because you have 26" ... Just how many moronic articles on here have you read to come up with that idea? Rotting you brain.. Ride your bike and you will get faster.

650B Think Tank
Internet troll is 650b marketer's dismissive and denigrating label of somebody who is a customer of company that makes 26" stuff. Remember you dimwit 26"(aka most of the bikers out there) buy the 27.5 stuff... Because 29rs. Got it? These ppl are a THINK tank and they were published on pinkbike. This is srs business. ;)
