We all love seeing new bikes get released, especially when it's the latest in Yeti's storied Superbike lineup. However, not everyone is in a position to shell out top dollar for the Factory Team replica build. So, if you have big plans, but don't have bottomless pockets, the Yeti SB-75 Comp Complete Mountain Bike will get you smiling. It's packed with components that match the newest SB's capabilities, only without ignoring the need for value. The build is essentially the same as the Enduro kit, with the exception of the Evolution series FOX suspension. In other words, you're looking at one of the most capable trail bikes around, and it doesn't come with cost of a mortgage payment either. The SB-75 represents the latest version of Yeti's Switch Technology suspension platform. At a glance, it's easy to mistake the Switch platform for a linkage-driven single pivot, but hidden underneath the blue anodized hardware is an eccentric pivot. Essentially, this turns the SB series into a whole different beast. The eccentric pivot is basically a smaller pivot that's housed inside of a larger one. As a result, this system provides Yeti with an extra degree of control over the forces involved in the suspension action. In the beginning of the SB's five-inches of travel, the pivot rotates towards the rear axle. This means that it's rotating opposite the direction of the pedaling forces that are being applied through the chain. In translation, it neutralizes the pedaling force. So, the SB remains stiff and responsive under power, rather than allowing your pedaling force to influence the suspension. As the bike compresses into the bottom of the travel, the eccentric link changes direction, rotating toward the front axle. This forward rotation keeps the chainstays short under full-compression, which keeps your weight centered in a neutral position relative to the wheelbase. And that all adds up to predictable feel and control throughout the entirety of the bike's travel. But des...
