We think 29ers have earned their place in the bike industry, with wagon wheels that tackle just about any terrain with quick rolling speed, and current bike trends will certainly reaffirm that they are here to stay -- but that's not to say we don't still covet a swift and nimble 27. 5 wheel. In fact, the surge of 29ers has had us a little concerned that the ideal in-between wheel was on its way out to pasture with 26-inch hoops of yester-years. Thankfully Yeti has put that worry to rest, and its launch of not just one, but two new 27. 5 bikes ups our stoke, and gets us ready for some rowdy trail riding. The all-new Yeti SB140 Turq Mountain Bike Frame is eager to show you what it's made of. The SB140 is built to dominate trails, with deep enough travel to get boosty on wild terrain, and playful geometry that's eager to turn any rock or root into a feature. Rollers become doubles to tail whip over, pebbles become launching boards, and berms feel more blast-able than ever before. Pair that up with a steep seat tube for soaring up climbs, slack head tube to handle steep descents with speed, partnered up with 140mm of Switch Infinity suspension, and you're ready to transcend categories, racing ribbons of buff XC trails, or bombing rowdy enduro courses alike, and everything in between. While its often that we see a new bike launch to replace an older model, the SB140 goes all-new. It brings totally unique geometry up to bat, with a steep and peppy 77-degree seat tube angle that's ideal for soaring up climbs, and hammering on pedals when you hit a buff section of flat, but this doesn't come at the cost of a compromised descent. Yeti crafts the front-end of the SB140 with a 65-degree head tube angle that's ideal to pair with a short-offset 160mm fork to soak up deep rock gardens, drops to flat, and terrain that might have you questioning your line choice. While the 27. 5 wheels and peppy 140mm rear travel might have you thinking that this bike is all play, the long wheel...

Eastern Egg Rock in the midcoast region, Seal Island and Matinicus Rock at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, and Machias Seal Island and Petit Manan Island off the downeast coast provide habitat for more than 4,000 puffins each summer.
