When lunch time rolls around at Yeti Cycles, they ditch the tupperware and microwave scene for an hour and a half of epic trail riding in beautiful Golden, Colorado. The local trails are a bit gnarlier than your average lunch ride, with plenty of rowdy descents and technical climbs. For this type of rugged terrain, the preferred bike among the Yeti crew is a modified version of the SB130 that's been appropriately dubbed the SB130 Lunch Ride. Equipped with a longer stroke Fox Factory DPX2 rear shock that boosts rear travel by 7mm, a 160mm travel Fox Factory 36 fork with the highly-tunable GRIP2 damper (10mm more front travel than the standard SB130), powerful XT brakes, and custom DT Swiss EX1700 32-spoke wheels that are made to take a beating, the SB130 Turq LR T1 XT straddles the line between a nimble trail bike and hard-hitting enduro sled.

That means it features the same longer, slacker geometry for taking on the steeps, and steeper seat tube for pedaling up long climbs to earn your turns. Its 65. 1-degree headtube is over a full degree slacker than the brands 5. 5, a bike that already pushed the boundaries of a long-travel 29er. Of course this contributes to unflappable stability when descending steep, technical terrain, but usually, a headtube angle so slack would be a bear on climbs and have lazy handling manners on the rest of the trail. This simply isn't the case with the SB130 as it employs a 44mm fork offset to bring the front wheel in closer to the rider so the contact pa...   read more
