The 2015 is nonboost, I think 2016 and up might be all the same. Possibly they made the seat tubes steeper and head tubes slacker, but I sure think my 2016 couldn’t be any better.

I believe the frames graphics and trim colors changed from year to year. My 2016 is a black/white logo on turquoise

2014/2015: Non boost 142mm and external cables (unless its the 30th anniversary edition.That uses the same frame as the 2016, boost 148mm and internal cables).

2016/2017/2018: Boost 148mm and internal cable routing

2019: Boost 148mm and tube in tube internal cable routing

Can I fit a Sram X01 DH DUB crankset onto my SB6c? It's made for a DUB PF30 bottom bracket. I'm lost with all the different BB standards. Are we stuck with just the PF92 BB on our SB6?

The spindle would be too wide.
If you try really hard you can make them work by using spacers on each side outboard of the bearings to take up slack. I’d recommend a 6mm nonboost chainring to space the chain line over to a reasonable angle.

You’d need a pf92 BB bottom bracket. Your shell is I.D. 41mm so need the matching 41mm BB.
That PF30 BB is either 42mm or 46mm (I forget which, but you could google it)

If it’s free, then you could make it work. I’d recommend some new Stylo or GX carbon cranks if you’re looking for carbon on a budget

Kinda tired of my 11 speed Shimano drivetrain. I was thinking of going with the Sram AXS GX upgrade kit. I would need to run a NX cassette as I have a Shimano hub. Anyone else had any experience running this setup on a SB6c specifically? Mine is a 2016 frame. I love the bike even though its got some age on it now.

I have my sb6C since 2014.. i ride it on french enduro cup.. I have finished 12 in french enduro cup with my old beast in 2021.
I have change nothing on it and i ride it every day.. I changed bearing 2 time/years, and the switch infinity is ok (but little scare on gold kashima).
Suspension are modified by novypart (french suspension center).

I broke the rear triangle 4 times... since i have it. I fix it 4 times.

Its an incredible bike.. with an awesome feeling on it.. i can explain that sensation. I can't find the same on other bike..

PS: sometimes i ride it on mullet Smile Smile

I have an AXS GX on mine but with a GX cassette and it works great,

I have a 2019 Yeti SB6 Torq FRAME (to build up). There are headset cups from Cane Creek in the carbon head tube -but no bearings etc. Does any know what Cane Creek Bearing goes into this model. There are various CCreek versions for short tall and wide.
I know the top bearing OD is 41mm and the bottom cup OD is 52mm. Naturally I will be using a tapered fork.

What did you do?
Fix it yourself with new carbon fibre layers?
If you don't mind me asking, how heavy are you?!

the problem with switch infintiy is heavy maintenance if you ride dust/dirt environnement.
