As with most bikes you can run different lengths of fork travel. According the FAQ, This sb115 is designed for 120/130mm of travel.I'd like to know why it specifically says 130 fork but in geo says 120mm of travel. Also, wonder if SI is improved as that was a problem for certain. Don't generally love when a company just adds travel to a frame as seat tube is too slack etc but looks nice
My thoughts exactly. I’ve gone through the 3 stages of the SI “fixes” on my SB100. While the most recent nylock bolts have not come lose the revisions for the SB115 certainly look a lot more stout. It would be cool to see a retrofit for the SB100.Sounds like they tweaked the si link, not sure what or how, but more importantly are any of these changes adaptable to the sb100.

maybe, but the rider is a sram/rockshox ambassador so they can easily have access to modified shocks.Anybody notice that the yeti website shows ride footage of the sb115 with a pike fork and what appears to be a RS superdeluxe? Are we thinking rear travel can be stretched to 120? Given that the 2021 dpx2 is available aftermarket in 190x45, could present some interesting build options.
I typically like their build options. I think the SLX build should be popular—a decent value for a good bike from a decent builder. If you compare the two C builds to offerings from Pivot, SC, Ibis, etc they are right in the mix.The build kit options in terms of groupsets are pretty interesting too. I know most will probably get at least a Turq T1 or above build, but the C1 build is equipped with Shimano SLX. On the SB100, the C1 build comes with SRAM GX, which is now the C2 SB115 build.
On that note, can we talk about pricing? As per the Yeti site currently (as of 9:30am pacific time), the SB100 starts at $5,099 USD for a C1 build. The SB115 starts at $4,700 for a C1 build (with SLX). If you want the "equivalent" SB115 C2 GX build to the SB100, even then it's $4,900. So for essentially the same frame, updated linkage, longer travel fork, longer shock, and the updated GX group, the new SB115 comes out $200 less than the "older" SB100.
The pricing gets a bit more blurred as you progress up the Turq builds though.
I thought this was fixed the last time? Is the Tribe finally admitting there was a problem with the SB100 SI? When I complained about mine, both versions, I got crucified for being a hater and not knowing what I was doing. I sincerely hope they got rid of the issue, it was a great bike other than that. But WITH that, I couldn't wait to get rid of it.The SI unit appears to be updated. If you go to the manual instructions, the SI stanchions are now threaded on the inside and have new mounting hardware and new torque instructiions.
This is a huge improvement imo, as someone who has the old linkage and I think this should finally fix the issue with this configuration of the SI link.
