SB150 Turq X01 Eagle Race Complete Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
We figured once Yeti reconfigured the Switch Infinity system on its SB100, making it possible to fit a water bottle inside the front triangle, and with the almost universally accepted move to a shorter 44mm fork offset on 29ers across the industry, to accommodate those slacker geos and longer wheelbases, we'd be treated to some new Yeti big wheel bikes soon. Well, we're excited to report that Yeti's newest 29er, the SB150, has arrived and it's the biggest and baddest wagon wheeler yet from the firm that calls Golden, CO home. Six plush inches of travel governed through its much-lauded Switch Infinity provides the kinematics creating a ride that simply gobbles up the burliest terrain and big hits at warp speed with ease, yet pedals with an amazing amount of efficiency so you'll never pass it up on those all-day epic rides or feel like you're wasting a ton of energy on enduro stage transfers. Further cranking up the capability of this bike over the SB5. 5 includes adding an extra 10mm of travel up front to the FOX 36 fork, bringing it to 170mm, slackening the headtube to an almost DH-friendly 64. 5-degrees and steepening the seat tube to 77-degrees, stretching the wheelbase, and shortening the chainstays down to 433mm, afforded by the new 1x-specific design. These changes all contribute to a ride that's extremely stable when the going gets rough and the trail is steep, but it doesn't sacrifice that nimbleness, agility, and pop we desire on tighter trails. Furthermore, Yeti tested this frame to downhill standards, which it passed with flying colors, and goes to show where it reckons this bike will find its riding environment on a regular basis. This particular bike, the SB150 Turq X01 Eagle Race Complete Mountain Bike, does an excellent job of proving exactly what we want in a build, like a TURQ frame, FOX Factory goodness, and SRAM's X01 group, providing the weight savings, durability, and performance were after without having to win the lottery.

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.
