    Pros
    Light responsive great for munching miles on . Easy to work on .

    Cons
    Frame number 3 as they keep snapping at the bottom of the seat tube all with in warrentied time fortunately and they gave me a full free replacement sadly never the same colour . How ever they have changed their 4 year frame warranty to 2 years. The service parts and bearings are very over priced and can be sourced cheaper aftermarket .

    I loved this bike, and I put a good deal of money into it in the way of upgrades to the original Enduro build that I purchased. Climbed and descended well, which is something you don't find everyday in a bike. Then I noticed a crack in the weld on the seat tube. A crack, that by all accounts from people who know more than I do, was a result of poor manufacturing, and not stress or a crash. Took it to my LBS, and they said it was past warranty by about eight months. Yeti offered me a loyalty discount that amounted to about 20% off, but on one of their new bikes that run about $5000. They didn't have to do that, but at the same time, if it's clearly a manufacturing issue, I think they could have done a little better. At any rate, I'm at peace with Yeti and their decision, and will simply move on. I have a brand new Santa Cruz Bronson, and more importantly, a lifetime frame warranty. I have broken every bike part imaginable in my 18 years of riding, but I just learned the hard lesson that when your frame goes, you're screwed. I will never again buy a bike that does not have a lifetime frame warranty, and neither should you.

    Pros
    Rode great. Really great.

    Cons
    Cracked frame.

    Pros
    enjoyable ride and excellent handling.
    great for someone who enjoys long rides like i do, but not the best on the down hill sections or the drops.

    Cons
    not one for brutal rides.
    not the best when it comes to a technical ride.

    The best bike I have ever owned. I have a 2008 575 and I have put it through more than it is designed for and it takes it and asks for more. I also let a buddy ride it before he went Moab last year and he came back from Moab with a 575. He said his just wasn't cutting out there after riding mine. Go Tribe!

    Pros
    Handles like a dream almost like riding on rails. Will take alot of abuse and eats anything that you can dish out. Pedal efficiency is great with pro-pedal.

    Cons
    Front end seems to be a lttle light side, which in turn seems to make the front end want to come up during some climbs.

    This is all the bike 99% of riders will ever need. I'ts tough, but not a freeride bike. It's light, but not necessarily a cross country racer. What it is, is a fantastic trailbike at a great price.

    Pros
    Light for a long travel bike. Durable. Unbelievable combination of climbing AND descending ability. Suspension keeps rear wheel glued to trail through any terrain. Super comfortable for all-day epics.

    Cons
    None.

    This is a TRAIL bike. As in do it all and more. I own the 2007 (the bike with the knuckle still) 575 and it is a dream. It climbs great with weight distributed forward when you climb, and it's descending abilitys are confidence ispiering, you want to go faster. I would recommend this bike to anyone.

    Pros
    The downhill platform
    Weight
    Company Service

    Cons
    Petaling Efficancy so-so without Pro-Pedal

    If you've ever felt a bit out of control on a ride, this bike really compensate for any lack of skill you might have. Well designed, well made. I recommend it to everyone I talk to.

    Pros
    Super control in almost any condition. Surprising uphill capability and a great downhiller. Worth every penny.

    Cons
    The ride is a bit compact.

    BUY THIS BIKE!!!

    Pros
    Best climbing and downhill bike I have ever rode... Can handle ANYTHING you would ever want to ride, if you have the skillz. The adjustable rear suspension is great for switching between climbing and downhill. It has conquered most of the hardest trails in CO. I will never go back.

    Cons
    nothing

    I ride mostly cross country in SoCal. This bike climbs even loose technical trails really well, but descents with extreme confidence. I have an X-9 build, with a TALAS fork. I love it.

    Pros
    This bike is a great climber, and smooth over rough terrain.

    Cons
    Nothing

    I own the 2008 Yeti 575 carbon with a custom build (Custom Mavic wheels with King hubs, Talas 36 fork, Chris King headset, XTR components, bashguard, chain guide) and a 2007 Yeti 575 Enduro, and I am a happy member of "The Tribe." I test several bikes before buying this; I lent my 2007 575 to a buddy who has dreamed of a Nomad, and he is likely to build up his own Yeti, as is still another riding mate! Great do-it-all MTB.

    Pros
    everything -

    - at 29 pounds with Talas fork at 100mm, it's a good climber
    - with 2.2" or 2.3" Chunders, I get away with murder downhill
    - super responsive steering, supreme handling
    - handles jumps/drops with ease
    - skims over washboards, baby heads, and roots

    Cons
    - seat post seems to glide down and requires more frequent tuning than I'd like
    - mild bob when hammering

    Single best all-round bike I've encountered. I test rode 36 bikes from all major and most minor brands before I settled on this one.

    Pros
    Light but long travel and durable. Suspension keeps rear wheel glued to the ground--amazing technical climber AND fantastic descender. Amazing geometry--comfortable in all conditions.

    Cons
    Slightly noticeable bob for a clyde on a standing climb.
