SB4.5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 by Yeti Cycles
When you're a well-rounded rider, you tend to find pleasure in tackling all sorts of trails, from flowy all-mountain riding with pockets of rock gardens and gnarly roots to steep and trying XC climbs that test just how hard you can push your lungs and quads. With riding so varied, having a bike with restrictive geometry and suspension that can't support the trails you point it up or down can make you angrier than a man with a fork in a world of soup. Yeti Cycles offers us a spoon in this soupy world with the 2018 SB4. 5 Turq mountain bike frame. Effectively finding the balance between a capable trail bike that can handle some chunky rock gardens, and a smooth-trail-loving, pedal-mashing XC bike, the SB4. 5 features lighter weight, and more nimble handling to earn its spot as a true all-mountain bike. With geometry that rides the line between trail and XC, the SB4. 5 runs a 64. 7-degree head tube, which is significantly slacked out beyond the 70-degrees we find on most cross-country bikes. This makes for incredible stability when descending, but because the seat tube angle remains steep you'll still be centered in your cockpit for laying down the power on climbs. In the back, progressive Boost spacing stretches the hub spacing to a wider 148mm that not only enables your hub to be laced up into a stiffer and snappier wheel, but also allows space for the rear wheel to be tucked in closer to your frame for a shorter chain stay for faster power transfers when you need to mash down on the pedals. The guts of the bike, the Switch Infinity suspension, lie just above the bottom bracket, which helps maintain a low center of gravity. Tucked inside the bottom of the seat tube and the rear triangle you'll find two silky-smooth Kashima-coated stanchions with a slider that moves in conjunction with the 144mm of Kashima-coated Fox Factory DPS shock to soak up blows while balancing out pedal bob with linear travel and anti-squat technology. While it'll be happy to soak up some ...
