SB5.5 Carbon XT/SLX Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Yeti Cycles
The long-travel 29er market has exploded in recent years now that manufacturers have caught on to the benefits of the big wheels. The wagon wheels simply roll faster, preserving your momentum and refusing to get hung up when daunting rock gardens and gnarled roots threaten to slow you down.

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.
