SB150 Carbon Comp GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
As 29er trail and enduro bikes continue to move towards longer and slacker geometry, we've been wondering when Yeti would add some new long-travel wagon-wheelers to their coveted line of Super Bikes.

In addition to these geometry changes, the suspension kinematics have also been revised for slightly more progressivity, and there's an extra 10mm of travel front and rear. These changes add up to a bike that's incredibly stable on descents, absolutely smashing steep enduro stages and chunky high-speed terrain, all without losing the nimble handling and playful pop that make less technical trails fun to ride.At this point, it's hard to question the benefits of 29in wheels when riders are winning Enduro World Series races and World Cup Downhills on them. Shortly after the SB150's release, Yeti pro Richie Rude piloted the SB150 to consecutive victories at EWS Ainsa and EWS Finale Ligure, solidifying the legitimacy of this new hard-hitter from Yeti and proving that ...

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.
