hello everyone, I'm after a specific bolt that can not be purchased separately for my 6c. it is a Pivot bolt 300030280 that seems to be only available as a rebuild kit at £180, bit of a kick in the teeth as I only replaced the bearings about a month ago. Before I pull the trigger and order just wondering if anyone has one? maybe from a warranty replacement or even an old rebuild kit. I have contacted Silverfish who cant help, YetiFan who were very helpful but unable to track one down and even Yeti Bikes USA who would supply a free one if I ordered something but shipping would be around £70. For that amount of money I think I would prefer to have a rebuild kit spare!

Bolt 20 on the exploded view if that helps.

try that place. I've just bought a single Ti pivot bolt for my 303 r-DH from there for £11. Steep but less expensive than the kit it comes part of. EDIT just read your post "properly" and see you contacted yetifan, doh!

PS my latest up to date pic of the 303r-DH.... still intend on purchasing a angle adjust headset to get another degree or two out of her and/or maybe some 27.5 fox 40 lowers

Final red bit gone all colour co-ordinated now and looking more like I want her to. Now just to get an angle headset and make her 2deg slacker.

My SB6. Pretty much the stock SRAM build from Yeti with the exception of the Brakes (swapped for XT) and Fork (DVO Diamond). In its first year it went on a pretty great journey around the US.

I'm from Michigan and there isn't a lot of legit riding that can be done on a bike like this with the exception of the UP (Marquette and Copper Harbor). We like to #dohardthings, however, and I rode this bike on the Marji Gesick (and it saved my bacon when my brain got tired):

So yea, this bike can go anywhere and do anything. I love this bike. Currently it's in pieces getting its yearly bearing service while I'm laid up with a broken clavicle and can't ride. The only thing I don't really like is just how hard it is to keep clean. To really get all the dirt out of everywhere you need to pull the frame apart and while I'm a fan of the shock that it comes with from a performance perspective, I'm not a fan of having to send it to Fox for service ($215 for a full teardown and rebuild).
