    I put new Hepco & Becker Junior 30 side cases on the K13S yesterday, but I don't think that warrants the 6" of snow I got over night. :evil

    Casey bought a Yeti SB66.

    Once my knee is a bit more recovered from the meniscectomy I may have to try to ride with you maniacs :evil

    I suppose I could take one for the team and go buy a snow blower.

    I'm in the market. A *bunch* of my friends went with Yetis, most with 29ers. They way they talk, it reminds me of a certain orange kool-aid.

    Educate me.

    I've only ridden a 575, but I like Yetis. Good, quality feel to them. Plus they're local. That being said, I went with a Specialized over the SB66 for weight and price. It was $500 cheaper and had a dropper post.

    I rode 29ers for a few years. I like the quicker stirring of the 26er, so I went back. I'm also on platforms, and I like to go down a lot more than up. Maybe 29ers are more of XC thing... :dunno
