These days there are a lot of really good bikes out there. Advancements in frame design, geometry, and suspension technology have finally caught up with the capabilities demanded by riders, but with all the wheel diameters, geometry changes, and different suspension designs out there, it can be tough to decide which one to buy. One class of bike that seems to offer the best do-it-all performance is the mid-travel 29er category. Able to tackle a wide variety of terrain without bogging you down on the climbs, these bikes excel on everything from backcountry epics littered with raw, gnarly terrain, to fast laps on your local flow trails, railing berms and popping off trail features.

The 65. 5-degree head tube angle is remarkably slack for a bike with this much travel, delivering unwavering stability when descending steep technical terrain. With a head tube this slack you'd normally feel some sluggishness on tamer sections of trail, but that's not the case with the SB130 as it's designed to pair with a 44mm offset fork, a way of bringing the front wheel closer to the rider so that the slack head angle doesn't create an unusually long wheelbase. This improves traction and makes the front wheel less likely to wander on slow speed trails or while climbing. Yeti went a step further by maki...   read more
