SB5 Turq LR X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Yeti Cycles
We love when bike brands spec a build that is the choice of what most of the riders of the company ride. In the case of the SB5 Turq LR X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike--whose LR appellation stands for Lunch Ride--that means bigger tires, a wee bit longer fork, and wider bars. The SB5 is known as one of Yeti's most versatile and popular bikes among the Tribe and it took that excellent frame and custom curated a build that satisfied their fastest in-house rippers.

Tires get beefed up from the normal spec Maxxis Ardents to a Maxxis Minion 2. 5in up front and a 2. 3-inch Aggressor in the rear. SRAM Guide RSC brakes see 180mm rotors on both ends to handle the long descents Golden, CO is known for. The X01 spec is super dependable offering plenty of range for rides going into the 5 digit numbers. So what they have created is a bike that still climbs and pedals with the urgency of the original SB5, but with the downhill chops that would have you questioning if you really need an SB6. Yeti says that their EWS teams will chose a build like the SB5 LR on courses like Rotorua and Tasmania, proving the bike's range of capabilities. As the frame itself is ident...
