Why We Like The SB130 Turq Mountain Bike Frame

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. And while we can name a handful of great wagon-wheeled all-rounders off the top of our head, one that could quickly make the rest of your stable obsolete is the SB130 Turq Mountain Bike Frame from Yeti Cycles. With its lightweight TURQ carbon construction, the plush yet efficient Switch Infinity platform, and geometry that makes the bike feel like an enduro sled on the descents without sacrificing pedaling efficiency on the way back up, the SB130 feels right at home on virtually any trail.

Longer, lower, slacker has been the trend on modern trail bikes, and on the SB130 the geometry numbers lean towards a skilled descender that can still pedal all day when it's time to earn your turns. 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 making the seat tube angle a steep 77-degrees, moving your weight further forward on the bike to provide more control over the front end and putting you in a better position to put power down on the pedals on steep climbs. To compensate for this, the reach was increased to maintain a roomy cockpit with plenty of space to shift your weight around on the bike while descending. Due to the long front-center and forward-leaning riding position, Yeti gave the bike stubby 17.0in chainstays for nimble handling in corners and quick power transfers to get the front wheel up and over obstacles more easily.

Compared to the older SB4.5 that had a bit less travel, steeper geometry, and required a little more finesse to get around obstacles, the SB130 is happy to take the straight line, plow through everything approach. The ideal SB130 rider is one that finds the SB100 a little under-gunned for their typical riding, but doesn't quite need the sheer monster truck handling of the SB150. Instead, the SB130 finds a nice balance between trail and enduro. We'd call it an aggressive trail bike that's fast both up and down the mountain, and is happy to dabble in the occasional enduro race. 130mm of rear travel may not seem like much, but it's designed to pair with a 150mm travel fork up front which is a better indication of the bike's intentions. Simply put, the SB130 flies down flowy singletrack with both playfulness and composure, but is ready to save your hide when things get rough and rowdy.

The frame is very nice but the custom build from CC has been a nightmare. -Brake levers were overtightened so carbon bar was cracked on arrival -Bike shipped with a badly bent derailleur hanger so shifting has been a nightmare (on an XO1 build) -Poor shifting has led to early wear of cassette I’d recommend buying the frame only and having a competent shop build it for you

This review has nothing to do with the bike itself, complain to CC directly instead of leaving reviews that help no one.
