 I'm not a great reviewer. Not even a good one! But this bike was my second and last attempt at the whole 29er experience...I'm a bigger guy at 6ft 2 / 230#. My first 29er was an Intense Tracer. I did not care for the VPP rear end as it seemed to twist under hard pedaling and turning especially climbing.(I'm sure my weight and size added to the issue) Otherwise It was a good bike and I liked it. I was going to try a few upgrades to try to make it work better for me but caught a break and the wife found a killer deal on the Yeti from Jenson's online.
One ride and I felt the difference. It was snappy, responsive, and super stout! It is the comp model with the Fox Evolution series suspension and Sram 2X10 drive train x7 shifters / x9 rear der. Owned now for a month and the only upgrade I have made is switched the bars to some carbon Bontrager Pro Rhythms. I love this bike and now enjoy the 29 inch wheel size! I plan on keeping this one for a while maybe to eventually try the carbon frame ; ^)

 This was the first 29er that I had ever ridden and let me say, Yeti did an awesome job with it. I have the 2014 model with the carbon rear triangle and alloy front and it's frickin awesome. It climbs much better than you'd expect a full suspension 29er to climb at the time it came out (they've come a long way since then), but when you point it down grade, it's snappy, responsive, playful and rolls over everything. I've taken it to bike parks, and done XC races on it. It's incredibly versatile. I did crack the suspension linkage on it, I don't really know when or how but it was probably during a park day. My local shop was able to get the part from Yeti and it went back together just fine. I run Maxxis Minion DHR and DHF tires for some extra fun on the descents and converted to tubeless. I'm going to sell it as I'm getting a 2021 SB165, but I would Highly recommend this bike as a good, capable starter bike that gives a beginner or intermediate rider a lot of room to grow for a very good price relative to where the industry is now.
