SB130 Carbon LR C2 GX Eagle Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
When lunch time rolls around at Yeti Cycles, they ditch the tupperware and microwave scene for an hour and a half of epic trail riding in beautiful Golden, Colorado. The local trails are a bit gnarlier than your average lunch ride, with plenty of rowdy descents and technical climbs. For this type of rugged terrain, the preferred bike among the Yeti crew is a modified version of the SB130 that's been appropriately dubbed the SB130 Lunch Ride. Equipped with a longer stroke Fox Factory DPX2 rear shock that boosts rear travel by 7mm, a 160mm travel Fox 36 Performance (10mm more front travel than the standard SB130), powerful SRAM Code brakes, and DT Swiss E1900 32-spoke wheels that are made to take a beating, the SB130 Turq LR C2 straddles the line between a nimble trail bike and hard-hitting enduro sled. This steed is the product of long days of playing around on local trails and tinkering with parts to find the right balance of descending prowess and climbing efficiency, making it a great option if you're stuck deciding between the SB130, or it's long-travel sibling the SB150. Now, you'll still find the same frame as the SB130, but think of the SB130 LR as the punk rock twin brother, who, minus the band tee, studded jacket, and mohawk, has the same stock as its more conventional sibling. That means it features the same longer, slacker geometry for taking on the steeps, and steeper seat tube for pedaling up long climbs to earn your turns. Its 65. 1-degree headtube is over a full degree slacker than the brand's 5. 5, a bike that already pushed the boundaries of a long-travel 29er. Of course, this contributes to unflappable stability when descending steep, technical terrain, but usually, a headtube angle so slack would be a bear on climbs and have lazy handling manners on the rest of the trail. This simply isn't the case with the SB130 as it employs a 44mm fork offset to bring the front wheel in closer to the rider so the contact patch is more aft than fore, for impr...

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.
