Yeti Quality is Awful - Chainstay Cracked after 1500 Miles due to poor weld and Yeti does nothing for you???

I've had the bike for around 4 yours (original owner), it road ok. It descended pretty well, the climbs not so much - I would put in the middle of the pack for that. But the biggest issue is that Yeti as a company does not back their product. I'm a guy in his 40's that doesn't do crazy stuff and the chainstay cracks by the weld. I take the bike in for what you would think would be warrantied as it's their bad but I'm told to pay $550 for a new triangle. If it were my fault, I'd certainly own up to - I can afford a new bike - but it's their poor weld that caused the failure and you don't own up to it??? Better yet, not only do I own one, I bought 1 for each of my kids so I have 3!!! One has a SB66 and the other has a SB5. They certainly ride better than my 575 but I also read they have triangle issues so I'm sure that will be coming and they won't own up to it again. It's a shame that a Company markets the bike as better built than the mainstream brands but in actuality it's false. Do yourself a favor and don't be like me - I read the reviews before I bought it and thought people were making it up and that I would never have an issue and then this happens - bad move by me. Do your homework as there are many reviews with quality control issues besides me and if your looking at any Yeti product, look for something else. The quality just isn't there and for what your paying. It's Porsche pricing with Yugo quality

Rode the 575 for 18 months, fantastic all rounder, climbs great with propedal engaged and let it loose on the way down and it like a magic carpet with rockets!

Weakness:

As smooth as it is that was also an issue, due to the way it smooth everything out it make the ride a little boring?

Fantastic bike all round.
I changed mine for an ASR5 for a bit more feed back from the trail, never looked back.
Now I ride a SB66c, wanted the feel and response of the ASR5 but with the longer travel of the 575 for the big hitting days on the trail.

Strength:

Looks way cool, lite, works great for a variety of trails, if you only have one bike, this could be it

Weakness:

Not a super climber, but good enough. Some have had trouble with the CF.

I believe my frame is a 2010. I bought the frame, collected components and built it from there. I am really happy how this bike turned out--I'd build another one in a minute. The bike is light, handles very well, and works well for cross country and all mountain riding. This is a great all-purpose bike, I would not be afraid to tackle anything on it. Fox suspension works very well with this bike, I highly recommend it. Yeti is expensive, but it is the real deal. Not everyone has the knowledge and tools to build one from the frame up, which is the most affordable way to obtain one--other than buying one used. However, if you are in the market for a fun and good handling bike that you can use for just about any riding--from cross country to bike parks, I highly recommend the 575.

Strength:

Well-balanced
Extremely fun to ride
Great traction and handling
One do-it-all trail bike

Weakness:

Can't really fit a water bottle inside the front triangle

If you can only afford one trailbike, this one covers a huge chunk of the riding spectrum. I bought a 2007 frame and built it up with durable parts at 28.5 pounds. Whatever trail I go to, I never feel like I have too much or too little bike. The single pivot suspension keeps your wheel glued to the ground whether going up or down. You get some brake jack, but only when you're being a whuss with the brakes on a downhill run. I'm 6', 215 lbs. and this used frame has held up great to all kinds of jumps and drops. Obviously it's not as efficient as a hardtail on climbs, but for the traction you get on rooty climbs I would not trade it. I'm just a poor college student, but with this bike I never feel envious of the rich guys' whips. I'm in the Yeti Tribe for life!

Strength:

thru axle set front and rear, burly downhill performance, a good climber, great build kit

Weakness:

lower bb, somewhat narrow rear triangle(my maxxis minion 2.3 sometimes rub mud or stuck rock on the frame)some front wheel flop when climbing steeps, a bit of brake jack that can easily be overcome with a change of technique

i love my 2011 model. compared to my 2007 the new model is even more fun bombing downhill. its not quite as lite, or as good a climber but its still very nimble and flickable when flying down. If you like the climbing of the old 575 you might want to check out the asr-5 instead. if you loved downhills on the old 575 but wanted to ratchet it up a notch or two this is your bike.

Strength:

Claws through steep technical climbs like a scared monkey while providing a stable, plush yet responsive descent. Somehow manages to make every trail twice as fun...magic?

Weakness:

So far, the only weakness i have noticed in the bikes design is that it does suffer from brake jack a lot more than other suspension designs. However, i may have found that this has actually helped me to develop better braking technique.

An amazing all rounder of a bike. I have thrashed this bike in the two months i have owned it, riding pretty much everyday and the more I ride it the more I love it. I'm in the process of building this bike up to be a light weight AM machine, something which can still keep up with the XC guys while shredding on the down hills. This is definitely a bike to seriously consider if your searching for a ride on the XC side of All Mountain.

Strength:

Excellent all around XC, trailbike, all mountain bike. Stiff, strong, well balanced frame. Awesome finish and details.

Weakness:

None that I can tell.

This is by far and away the best bike I've owned and ridden. Have had a stable of various full suspension and hard tail bikes and none can compare to the Yeti for the forgiving stable ride it gives. Have used it for medium length XC rides, and a ton of trail blazing here in the midwest and rode it at the 2011 24 Hours of Moab in Utah. It performed flawlessly. Climbs great and descends some pretty gnarly stuff. Has never left me wanting for more travel or capability. No plans in the future of swapping out for another full suspender. I see no need. Next bike is a Yeti ARC hardtail. Love the brand!

Wish I could give this bike six chiles for value. The high-end components are a godsend for those of us who don't have $6,000 to spend on a bike.

It's the kind of ride with solid performance in almost any situation — the type of ride that only comes from years of evolution and fine tuning by Yeti. Considered the SB-66, but I wanted something tried and true. It took me a couple weeks to get the suspension dialed in, but now it's the closest to nirvana I've experienced in a lifetime of mountain biking. I think a part of us always wishes we had a couple more inches of travel for Moab-style boulder bombing, but this bike handles literally anything else. It may look like too much bike for smooth rolling cross-country trails, but it rips those up like a BMX bike with shocks. My first ride, I decided to see if it could jump. Next thing I know, my head's in the stratosphere and I'm shouting things that would make a porn star blush. Stuck the landing and knew it was the bike for me.

The Fox suspension soaks up the big hits and irons out the choppiest of trails. I've bottomed out the rear shock in softer settings, but it didn't feel like it was hitting bottom. The knarliest of hits cannot swamp the Fox 32 Fork, where I've yet to use the last 3/4 inch of travel. Mountain Bike Action gave the bike a low score for breaking, but it feels absolutely solid to me, as does everything else on the bike.

Only had the bike three months, and am still babying it a bit, but haven't broken anything.

Weakness:

The only thing I've had a hard time with on this bike is on steep, rocky climbs. It climbs like a goat on smooth climbs, but it stalls when your front tire hits a large rock or root. Any suggestions? Don't know why adjustable travel forks went by the wayside, but this bike could have benefited from one. It still climbs much better than the GT Force.

Hope to someday see the engineers devise a way to see the numbers on the rp23 shock so you dial while riding, but for now I'm content to memorize which setting I'm in and which way to turn for the next setting.

This bike is beefy, sporty, fast and fun. I spent a lot of time researching and demoing bikes. My second choice was a Trek Rumblefish, which is slightly better at climbing and maintaining momentum. But the 575 is just more fun. It rips around turns and launches off jumps in a way that no 29r can. In our quest to shave off half ounces of weight and have perfect pedaling efficiency, we've forgotten why we got on the bike in the first place as kids. This bike reminds me every time.
