    Had to upgrade to a Float 36 basically so I could try and put my 575 together or sell it as a frame fork.

    Now that it is bitter cold here, I probably won't get to do any riding on this bike till May. :rolleyes:

    Looks well nice. Take a road trip to sunnier climes and get some riding in. Then tell us about the SB66.

    I rode a SB66 this week. Liked very much the rear suspension. Your build is perfect, it needs 1x gearing and a 160mm fork.

    I have had it out since the winter never happened till I left. Fork makes it slack, 10psi in the Hans Dampf made it a slug, but honestly, what a great bike, more then big enough for anything I will try to jump still can climb well, the carbon frame would be sweet for the weight drop, but where I will be riding this the little weight difference isn't going to make a difference.

    So then the consensus is a Fox 36?

    After riding it for about 4 months, I think a Float 36 lowered to 150mm is ideal. That was my original plan and then I just rode it at full travel. I'm going to lower it in the near future and it should be a little more balanced.

    My thought is about the same as Dogboy, 160 is pretty slack, but I didn't buy mine to ride where I live anyways, which is dumb, cause I really don't ride anywhere else.

    If I had one of these, with a 36, and a coil to swap out the air when its something a little more industrial, I think this might be the perfect bike for 90% of the ruckus I'd get into.

    That would be a great bike for you. Similar to the evo's you've been looking at but more shock options.


    Still anxious to take a spin on a 66. They look amazing and I haven't ridden a bad yeti yet.

    I should probably just sell the frame, post, and headset.

    Say $1700

    I'd go $2500 for it total.
    What wheels/specs?
    And is it the 135 or the 142 rear end?
