Product Description
SB5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame by Yeti Cycles
Sustained climbing on tedious fire roads or unrelenting steep trails may not be the most enjoyable part of mountain biking, but unless you're shuttling or riding a resort with chairlift access, they're a necessary evil to reach the flowy descents, technical rock gardens, and high-speed singletrack that we all dream of. For this, you need a bike that is nimble and efficient on the climbs, with the capability to slay any descent. The SB5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame fits the bill, a bike that's equally at home putting in serious miles on epic all-day adventures as it is ripping steep, chunky lines in the backcountry. It uses Yeti's highest-grade carbon fiber, with smooth and efficient Switch Infinity suspension that leaves us blown away every time we ride it. Like its predecessor from 2016, the SB5 is versatile, lightweight, and truly excels in all kinds of terrain, but it did see some tweaks last year to update the geometry, making it even more capable than before. Starting at the front, the head tube angle was slacked out about a half a degree, to a long and low 66. 5-degrees, allowing for confidence inspiring geometry on descents. With the shift of the head tube, the seat tube was pushed forward, upping the angle to 73. 6-degrees (medium), keeping you forward in the cockpit for improved control on descents, as well as laying the power down on climbs. The rear end saw a big makeover, with the previously used 142mm non-boost hub spacing being stretched to a generous 148mm boost hub spacing. By widening the hub, not only does boost spacing allow for a stiffer wheel to be built, but it also clears up space closer to your seat tube, enabling the shortening of chainstays to a stubby 17. 2-inches, to tuck your wheel in closer to the frame. Translating this to your ride, it means a snappier and more nimble rear end that's powerful under pedaling force. Yeti's Switch Infinity suspension design is among the best we've ridden. It's plush throughout the 5in of rear travel, of...

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.
