SB130 Turq T2 X01 Eagle Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
We live in a time of really, really good mountain bikes. Cross country steeds can confidently tackle terrain that was strictly all-mountain territory a few years back, and long-travel enduro bikes are almost efficient as short-travel trail bikes from a few years ago. But with all the different wheel sizes, geometry updates, and suspension designs, it can make the purchasing decision a daunting task. Fortunately, there's one category of bike that excels at pretty much everything, whether it's epic rides on rugged backcountry terrain, hot laps at your local trail system, or a day of shredding jumps at your local bike park. That category is the mid-travel 29er class, and the Yeti SB130 Turq T2 X01 Eagle Mountain Bike sits right at the front of the pack. It's a helluva trail bike that makes quick work of steep, technical trails, yet remains lively and playful on smoother singletrack, too. That means that everyone can get a piece of the fun regardless of your trail preference or riding style. Factor in its lightweight TURQ carbon construction, plush Switch Infinity platform with FOX Factory suspension, and a snappy shifting, wide-range SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain, and you have an ultra-capable bike that's appropriate on a wide variety of trails and geographic locations. Longer and slacker continues to be the name of the game, and on the SB130 the numbers lean towards the trend of a more capable descending bike that can still pedal when it's time to earn your turn. 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 rider so the contact patch is more aft...

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.
