2017 Yeti SB5.5 Carbon, size XL. Bought in January 2017. Original owner. Has about 650 miles on it. Brand new suspension bearings (by shop), freshly bled (by shop) XT Brakes, recent Fork and Shock seal service (by shop), recent tire replacement. The bike has the following spec, all included and weighs 30lbs. with the pedals on it. Yeti SB5.5 Carbon (not "Turq") 140mm rear travel, Switch Infinity suspension IBIS 942 Carbon wheels (35mm internal width) RF SixC Carbon Bars (35mm diam, 20mm rise, 785mm wide), RF Turbine 60mm stem, ODI Rogue grips (black) RF Next SL4 Carbon cranks (175mm) Brakes: Shimano XT with 180mm rotors (I have 200mm rotor and adapter for fork I will include) Drivetrain: Shimano XT shfiter and derailleur, Box Components 11 speed cassette (will include original XT Cassette as well) Fox Transfer dropper post, 150mm travel Fox 36 Performance fork (160mm) Fox Float X Performance Shock DMR Vtwin Pedals SPD (clipless). Maxxis Minion DHF WT 2.5 front tire, Aggressor WT 2.5 rear tire (about 2 mos. old). Includes Fabric cageless water bottle and turquoise Backcountry Research strap (Pictures included are from when new and don't show current grips, bars, stem, cassette). This bike lives up to they hype...climbs incredibly well, super capable-stable downhill, but can still navigate tight twisty switchback and low speed trail with grace. I am 6'4" and would say this size XL is good for anyone 6' up to 6'5" depending on reach preference. There are a couple of cosmetic scratches on the top tube and one on the head tube. I can send photos if you are interested. I have never had a significant crash or fall on this bike. carbon wheels have a few nicks and scratches that are normal wear and tear. Tires are set up tubeless. I will reduce price if you prefer E.13 TRS+ alum wheelset instead of Carbon (only 5 rides on the E.13 wheels and tires)

Fashion vs. Fit: Is Longer Always Better? - Opinion
I'm 6'4" and ride an XL Yeti SB5.5. I feel exactly the way you do. Like when I ride just horizontal trail I'm a little compressed and "high" on the bike. Climbing is ok accept that it is very easy to get too far over the front axle. Then going downhill I have to consciously get way behind the seat and lower my ass (close my hip angle) which makes agility/control more difficult. It's most noticeable on the steeps. Overall, even though a super capable bike by design, it actually makes me tentative in a lot of situations going both up technical stuff and down it. Primarily due to concern about going OTB easily. So then I am too far off the back and that compromises cornering and overall balance. So what am I doing about it? Slightly long stem (60mm) less spacers (only 5mm) and riser bars (35mm). But still not nough. Next step? I bought a XXL Capra 29 with 505mm reach a steeper seat tube angle, and a shorter seat tube. Hope that is the answer. If I were 6'0" then I would say the XL Yeti is the ultimate bike because of its performance.

Black on Black with Red Anodized bling here and there. 2012 Stumpjumper FSR 29er, Size XL, black frame was a frame only option. Custom build from there. Specialized Roval Traverse SL Fattie (30mm internal width) carbon wheels with Specialized Purgatory tires (Grid). Very recent Shimano M8000 1x11 drivetrain and Shimano M8000 hydraulic disc brakes and rotors. Easton carbon bars (35mm x 760mm) Easton alloy stem. KindShock Lev 150mm dropper is less than 6 months old. weight approximately 30lbs. I am 6'4". Bike would be good for 6'2" to 6'6" depending on how you like to fit the bike. Pedals shown in picture not included (I have other flat pedals I will give you if you need them). This bike will do cross country to aggressive trail riding. It is 130mm travel in rear, 140mm travel in front. I upgraded the rear shock to a RockShox Monarch Plus about a year ago. I have the old Specialized/Fox "Brain" shock if you prefer a more racey, firm feel. The fork is a Fox Talas adjustable (110-140mm) that I had rebuilt by Push Industries. It has High Speed and Low Speed compression adjustment like current Fox forks do. I will include with the bike any or all of the following parts at the buyer's option: Original 2x10 drivetrain (Cogs, Chainrings, Shifter, derailleurs), Original Specialized/Fox Brain rear shock. Seals kit for Monarch Plus Shock and for Front Fork, Shock pump. Bike is in very good condition. Carbon wheelset has some scratches on them, but are true and solid (set up tubeless). All the recent upgrades make this bike almost new.

Niner RIP 9 RDO and JET 9 RDO - First Ride
Geo looks like a 150mm travel 2012-ish Stumpjumper. Not a bad thing and I understand why the reviewer commented on "nimble vs. monster truck." Not EVERYONE is an Enduro racer. I'd really like to know how the CVA suspension climbs with this much travel. I would imagine the 75.5 degree ST angle has to do with suspension limitations if you are too far rearward in the bike. Looks fantastik. Nice job 9er, uh 275er, uh 9275er....!
