YETI CYCLES 35th ANNIVERSARY ARC EDITION

To celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Yeti Cycles, they have just released an ARC 35th Anniversary Edition!  It is a modern 29” hard tail painted in classic Yeti Turquoise and yellow and riddled with custom matching parts harkening it back to the iconic race days of the nineties. It’s a limited-edition bike and only 100 will be produced. First launched in 1991, the original ARC was a collaboration with Yeti and Easton to produce a lightweight race frame.

A close up look at the Yeti SB165 C-Series C1 Build

 We have recently been asked by a few people for more details and photos on our bikes. Often the ones that get reviewed only show one build kit or colour. So we thought we might start doing a few posts with bikes you don't see very often! Today we are featuring the YETI SB165 C-Series C1 Build in the raw colour. (the same build option is available in the turquoise colour as well) The SB165 is of course the new big daddy, 27.5, mini DH bike from Yeti. While insanly capable, the biggest surprise I personally had when riding this bike was that it still actually pedalled fine (I took it to Tasmania for a 5 days solid riding in...
