The long-awaited arrival of the brand-new SRAM XX Transmission gave us an opportunity to create the dream Yeti SB120 build.
The brief for this build: To have a light, fast, and confident bike for racing the Cape to Cape, while still maintaining the trail manners of a trail bike. No expense was to be spared.
With the finest components from SRAM, Rockshox, and Chromag gracing a one-off gloss SB120 TURQ-series raw carbon frame, this bike is both unique, classy, and subtle.
