SB5 Carbon LR GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
The crew at Yeti Cycles is fortunate enough to incorporate a daily lunch ride as part of their work routine, a way of staying true to their heritage of building bikes they love to ride. The trails near their headquarters in Golden, CO are riddled with stiff climbs and blazing technical descents, encouraging them to reach for a bike that is nimble and efficient on the climbs, but sure-footed and stable on the descents.

The wider bars give you more leverage, allowing more steering control to accommodate the bike's slacker geometry. Lastly, the 2. 5in Minion/2. 3in Aggressor tire combo is simply a favorite of Yeti employees, and the narrower width doesn't feel quite as sluggish as the rock-crawling 2. 6's they spec on other SB5 models.Being that the frame itself is identical to the SB5, the Switch In...

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.
