SB130 Turq LR X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
Here at the Competitive Cyclist office, we take advantage of whatever time we can get on the trail. This often results in long lunch breaks that skip the chow-down hour and instead opt for heading straight to the trail to blast some berms, soak up some sunshine, and get a breath of fresh air. And much like those of us working away in the office here, we suspect that the staff at Yeti Cycles holds the same high regard to those lunch laps, and use them as trial grounds for playing around their Golden, Colorado trails, tinkering with setups, and tossing on different spare components here and there in an effort to fine-tune Yeti's rides to the perfect machine for their liking -- and well, your liking too. To prove it, Yeti brings one of those lunchtime favorites to the market with the new SB130 Turq LR X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike. This steed is the product of generous days of playing around on local trails, and tinkering with parts to find the right balance of a beefier fork in the front, a little more travel in the back, and bigger tires that come together to make the Lunch Ride into the wild party-crazed sibling of Yeti's standard SB130. Now, you'll still find the same frame as the SB130 -- think of the SB130 LR as the punkrock 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. 5-degree headtube is a full degree slacker than the brands 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 rid..

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.
