Ridden and Rated - 5 Trail Bikes
@thenotoriousmic: I'm still not sure how you feel you're being misled though... What exactly about that review is dishonest? Short travel bikes tend to go hand in hand with more xc-oriented geometry, and a less-stable feel. What Kazimer was getting at is that although the 45 falls into the same travel category, it does not feel like other bikes of that ilk, and despite it's short travel it can be held in the same regard as more aggressively designed bikes with longer travel. I'm really not sure what the problem with that is!

@thenotoriousmic: Not really. I had expected it to feel a bit spindly as it's a relatively short travel 29'er. Up to that point my experience of 29ers (especially around that travel mark) was that they were flexy, weedy things which didn't feel confident at speed, or in steep, technical terrain. That said, I went into it with an open mind as I understand that travel, wheel size etc. are all just individual parts of the complete package. It's how they're put together, in combination with geometry, frame-stiffness and clever use of that relatively short travel (in this case, Switch Infinity) that counts. I'm pleased to report that Yeti really pulled it off with this one. Testing it back-to-back with an SB6, their 6" Enduro bike, I felt a lot more confident on the 45, and certainly didn't feel any slower. You seem to have a bit of an axe to grind, and I'm really not sure why. I'm also really not sure how you feel you (we) are being misled. Nobody's putting a gun to anyone's head with articles like this and saying "you have to buy one!" All they're doing is putting a bit more information out there about the choices available. I fail to see how that's a bad thing.

@thenotoriousmic: It's not really about what people need though. It's about what they want. If people want a top end bike and can afford to buy one, who the hell are you to tell them they shouldn't? You ride an on-one hardtail with mid-range kit. You clearly like it, and that's awesome. I hope you have a lot of fun on it. I ride a Yeti (SB45 incidentally) and absolutely love it. I have a great time on my bike, and it hasn't bankrupted me to buy it. Sure I'm not going to win any EWS races on it, but I don't care about that- I enjoy riding it. Ultimately these reviews are not designed to convince people they NEED a new bike. However there are a lot of people in the market for a new bike who might find group reviews like this very useful. You need to calm down and stop giving a shit about what other people buy. *edit* to follow on from what Kazimer said about the 45 (not that you care) this bike really really doesn't feel like it has 114mm travel. I was really surprised by it when I first test rode one last year. Having come off an SB5 with 127mm travel I was expecting it to feel like a spindly XC bike, but was absolutely blown away by how fast (and *cliche alert* capable) it was.

It's not really about that though, is it? Different people have different preferences when it comes to bikes, and that's reflected in the article... Good work Pinkbike!
