Bikes now are mostly all good.... but it comes down to preference and sizing.

I’d go Jeffsy Pro Race over an SB130 any day.
I love both but the 150mm rear and now 160 up front suits my riding environment and style very well. Both are such fun bikes, even prices aside I’d still go Jeffsy Race.

$.02

If you feel like upping the travel, wouldn't the correct comparison then be sb150, instead of sb130?

Where I live 120-130 is ideal, 140 is arguably a bit much, so the 130 fits my needs perfectly around here and for most of the traveling I do with my bike.

Sounds like you’ve got your mind made up. Go for it, and enjoy!

At least monetarily, it sounds like a decent deal. Yeti’s aren’t cheap.

Yes, matter of fact. And my position remains, I was going to bring that up, however the threads focus was on the SB130.
Cheers

The SB130 looks like an amazing bit of kit, however, I ride 3-5 times per week in all conditions and wouldn’t fancy maintaining the Infinity system on top of everything else!

Has anyone put a Super Deluxe coil on a Jeffsy? If so what stock tuning did you go for?
I found 2 Super deluxe coil, one is M/M, and the other one is L/L.

Yes, been running it for a few months now. Went M/M on a 500# coil. With rebound and LS dialed in the middle. I weigh 200lbs kitted up and its been fantastic, this has been coming from a Fox X2. Just threw on a SAR 500# spring to try out tomorrow. Grab the M/M with a lockout and don’t look back.

I'm guessing we'll see more SRAM/RS spec'd builds in 2020. Just based off the recent YT management announcement... I'd buy a new one if they had a DVO suspension spec Wink Onyx SC 29" just announced! https://dvosuspension.com/fork/onyx-sc/

I was thinking more Shimano for next. Dream build would be XT 12 speed and DVO or Öhlins suspension. Would be a nice touch with Shimano Sylance hubs.

TRSr Carbon crank catastrophic failure.

Wow that is troubling.. but yes I have heard of this happening to a buddy of mine at the bike park. Luckily for my buddy he was on flat and high torque pedal stroke and it snapped the crank arm.

Just posted my 29” 2018 Jeffsy Pro Race size L for sale if anyone is interested. I live in Germany but can ship to Europe or anywhere in the US.
