Michael.odb .... if i may share my own experience too - I also switched to the SB5C coming from the SB66C ... I would say that it is the 5C is probably even a bit more capable mainly because of the bump absorption the new infinity system has. It actually has a more bottomless feel than the SB66c and allows me to be more confident in the rough gnarly stuff ... in fact i sometimes find myself searching for those gnarlier parts of the trails i usually just coz i know it can take it more. Just my 2 cents

Thanks for the info! I'm currently riding an sb66 with coil shock. In fact it's pretty much a mini-dh bike now, but does feel a bit heavy on longer rides.

Very nice build! Can you give me a quick comparison of the SB66 and this one? Is this the sb5c just as capable on the real gnarly dh stuff?

The question I've been wondering for weeks when i was debating between the SB6 and the SB5 to replace my 66...
After 3 weeks of ridding with the SB5C, i can say that I'm approaching gnarly section with the SB5 the exact same way as what I was doing with the 66, probably even faster.The rear suspension is just handling technical section very well despite only 5inch of travel, this is very suprising when you first ride this bike.
