2016 Yeti SB6 Carbon X01

I rode the Yeti SB6 Carbon X01 mountain bike during a demo day this weekend in Fairfax, California, put on by Big Swingin Cycles from San Francisco. I rode from the Marin Bicycle Museum up to Camp Tamarancho and had a fun time on this bike.

I have the Yeti SB66 carbon and it’s similar, but different. My bike has a 3×10 drivetrain, where this SB6 has a 1×11. My bike has 26″ wheels, this one has 27.5″ wheels.

The wide handlebars felt good but it would take a bit to get used to them getting oh so close to trees. SRAM brakes are different than what I’m used to but by the end of the ride I was feeling confident with them.

This is the best bike I’ve ever ridden, but isn’t that always the case with the latest and greatest gear?
