This initial rearward axle path is what makes the Yeti an impressive technical climber, preventing the rear wheel from getting hung up as you power up chunky climbs.

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.
