We're extremely lucky here at Silverfish to have a warehouse full of some of the most desirable bikes and components on the planet and during our show season we build up some very special machines to exhibit to our customers. With this in mind we thought it was high time we shared some of these builds with you all as we're sure they will get your pulses racing and most of them would look rather nice pinned to a workshop wall.

First out of the blocks is our sub 26Ibs Yeti SB-66 carbon which features a build so bling it should be in a music video.

All the staff at Silverfish were very excited when the new Yeti SB-66 alloy was released but when we unboxed the carbon fibre version hearts stopped. The 150mm trail/ enduro bike is truly a thing of beauty with its swooping smooth carbon form and subtle Yeti livery (available in grey or Turquoise colourways) it wouldn't look out of place hanging on a museum wall. Based on Yeti's Switch suspension system the SB-66C (SB for Super Bike and 66 because of its 26" wheels and 6" of travel) may look like a single pivot design but it's actually a unique dual-link suspension design based around an eccentric pivot which switches direction as it moves through its travel. This allows Yeti to create a bike which has excellent anti-squat characteristics for crisp pedalling but still maintains suspension independence throughout its travel. By constantly repositioning the lower pivot it means that the suspension counteracts chain forces and eliminates pedal feedback for uninhibited suspension performance to fly up hill and down.

The build we have here is truly from the top draw and bar a few titanium rotor bolts and a dropper post you would be hard pushed to 'pimp' it further. A couple of tweaks are planned including a single front ring set-up and a clutch rear mech ready for enduro racing.
