Perfect shape, completely rebuilt 2018 Yeti SB5.5, many new components and just rebuilt. Never crashed (amazing for me). I have plenty more detail photos if needed :). This has been my favorite Yeti to date – absolutely smashes rough enduro lines, yet still climbs amazingly. Ridden fall 2018 through September 2019. I thought I had replaced it with a new SB130, but that bike was simply not as good an all-rounder. I since have gone to an Ibis Ripmo, and that is much closer to a great all-around rough trail crusher. The SB5.5 frame alone is more than a pound lighter than the new SB130/150 frames! As built weight 28.16 lbs (12.7 kg), this setup is enduro ready and could be lighter with more trail-spec tires. I have had it built as light as 26.9 lbs. for a big backcountry epic trip. Suspension is dialed for 165lb rider at the moment, but has insane adjustability (especially the rear shock). This still is one of the best Yeti's you can get, progressive (but not too progressive so you need to ride the front wheel all the time!) and a perfect rough country all-rounder. FRAME: Near perfect shape, protected with a full Yeti frame wrap since new. A few small decal chips as shown. Rebuilt pivots and SI unit MAR ’20, has not been ridden since. FORK: 2019 Fox Float 36 160mm, upgraded with a Vorsprung Luftkappe air piston, and a Vorsprung damper piston. I only upgraded the damper shim-stack, and left the 3-postion function intact since I like pretty firm lockout for long gravel road climbs. Lower service done MAR ’20, has not been ridden since. Mucky nut fender included to protect the NEW SKF seals ???? SHOCK: Custom valved 2019 Fox X2 with climb switch. This came directly from Fox R&D valved for this bike. Volume spacers & tune notes included! Pure butter, only used in the latter half of 2019. COCKPIT: NEW Answer ATAC stem, NEW Renthal Fatbar Carbon 10mm rise, full 780mm un-cut. Can Creek 40 headset rebuilt FEB ’20, has not been ridden since. NEW Ergon GE1 Evo Factory Ice grips - these make the bars about 790mm. POST/SADDLE: 2018 KS Lev Integra 150mm drop. Rebuilt FEB ’20 with a NEW GOLD air shaft, has not been ridden since. Minimal use Fizik Tundra M3 with braided carbon rails (164 grams). No cuts or scratches on this saddle. DRIVETRAIN: SRAM XX1 Eagle rear, SRAM XX1 Eagle shifter, SRAM XO1 Eagle 1275 11-50 cassette (Same as XX1, just not gold), SRAM XX1 Eagle chain (black, naturally). 1 season of use and in perfect working order, Chain was new AUG ’19 and will go at least 1-2 more seasons (the XX1 Eagle chains last forever!) CRANK: Race Face Turbine 175mm with Race Face 30mm BB. BB rebuilt FEB ’20, has not been ridden since. I had a RF Next R carbon cranks here and they broke – this one is 40 grams more and indestructible! I will not use carbon cranks for enduro bikes again :/. BOTH 30 tooth and 32 tooth rings included, each with at least 80% life left. WHEELS: BRAND NEW Stan’s Sentry MK3 ($700.00) 32mm inner width sweet spot to fit 2.4-2.6 tires. My go-to wheelset for all-round toughness and reasonable weight (1900 grams). Front Maxxis DHF 3C 2.5 WT and rear Bontrager SE4 Team Issue (light and VERY tough). Tires are about 10% worn - nearly full life left in them. Set up with Stan's Race/regular sealant mix (fresh in June). EXTRAS: 32 tooth RF chainring, Crank brother Candy3 pedals (good shape), Shock volume spacers & documentation. PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS. I am a pro mechanic & enjoy getting getting folks kitted out properly. No returns for mistaken spec, size or other silly mistakes, but I will cover anything that is my fault! Shipping will be in a Yeti Pro build box (50x35x13). It's a big box, so only wheels, add pedals & mount stem needed to ride (it's slick). Shipping will be handled by BikeFlights. $130.00 or Actual UPS/FedEx shipping

Poll: Has Climbing Become Unfashionable?
HTFU. They're called bicycles and are meant to be pedaled everywhere. Also, the most badass DH & Enduro guys will crush you on a climb.

MIPS Says WaveCel Helmet Technology Falls 'Far Below' Bontrager's Injury Prevention Claims
@mikekazimer: How might PB be at liability risk if you were to hire out testing to an independent lab and report the results, plain & simple? Tough to legally point fingers if you're only reporting results... http://www.icslabs.com/ www.sgsgroup.us.com/ These are a couple labs I have used to certify helmets, and many labs will run any protocol you need, say perhaps the draft standard for rotational testing in committee in CE: CEN/TC 158/WG 11, or even the VT protocol. Either one is better than the issued standards (CPSC, CE EN 1078). This seems to me to be the essence of investigative reporting, and also might be rad...
