SB100 GX Eagle Comp Complete Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
Yeti's faithful fans know that a short-travel 29er isn't unprecedented in their line, seeing the previous ASR Carbon occupied this same genre, offering cross-country racers the efficiency to blow the doors off the competition, but with a rowdy alter ego that made it far more capable than its limited travel figures would suggest. As such, you'll find Yeti created the SB100 GX Eagle Comp Complete Mountain Bike to fill the void left by the previous ASR Carbon, but with updated geometry figures to make it far more confident over technical sections of trail. It features a compact version of Yeti's Switch Infinity suspension platform packing 100 millimeters of efficient travel that excels on climbs and across longer distances seen during multi-stage XC races, such as the BC Bike Race or Downieville Classic. We typically think of cross-country bikes as one trick ponies that barely trouble the scale which makes going uphill less of a chore, but the sometimes anorexic build can be slightly unnerving and requires a good test of faith when pushed through its paces on technical descents. With the SB100, it has some pretty good lineage to draw inspiration from and even though the geometry and suspension have cross-country riding and racing on its mind as the intended purpose, it's hard not to notice the trail and enduro highlights that bled over from Yeti's long-travel offerings. The Switch Infinity platform, utilized on all Yetis all the way up to the EWS-winning SB6, has been redesigned specifically for 100mm of travel on this model. It's light and tucks behind the seat tube, sitting in its own compartment out of the way of wheel spray and errant trail debris. This design also allows the front triangle to accommodate a large water bottle--the first we've seen from a Switch Infinity bike. We feel like this is a move in the right direction, even if it does come with a few added grams over the ASR's single pivot design, as every Yeti we've ridden with Switch has awesome climb...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
