After testing several bikes Stumpy FSR, Santa Cruz Blur LT, Elsworth truth & many more, I decided on the Yeti 575 due to "Bang for the buck" and the great reviews, Almost no negative.
At close to $700 less than other bikes with the same build along with the 5.75 frame weight (upgraded to carbon rear) otherwise 6.25.
I rode this bike on the Tsali Left, right and Thompson loops without a problem, Climbs
solid as my hard tail, with the slightly slack trail its not twitchy... I happen to like twitchy and was not dissappointed the way this bike handled.
With 5.75 inches of travel, the bike was plush and did not bob with the pro pedal on.
After a mile long down hill laced with rock gardens and air time humps, I used every bit of the travel and slowed down for nothing, Very confidence inspiring.
