Staff Rides: Daniel Sapp's Yeti SB130
@mtb-sf: WTH are you on about?! I’ve ridden those 3 and the Yeti wins. Only if you were running 50% sag. I’ve had way too many demo bikes set up poorly so always carry a shock pump so I can dial in further if needed. Odd.

Review: Fezzari's 2019 La Sal Peak is a Fun & Modern All-Rounder
@taletotell: It's been fun demoing some cool bikes over the last year (outerbike, friends, individual demos) and I was hoping to get into something new this spring... but that's been pushed back until next spring, which is ok. Anyway, my current shortlist is the sb130, sentinel, and ripmo. Those 3 rose to the top over at least half a dozen other candidates. Recently i rode the stumpy evo and it was fine but at the end of the day i think the bb is just too low for a normal do it all sled with lotsa pedaling. And once you throw a 160 air shaft on that bike, which I'd do if for nothing else to raise the bb a little, the HTA in 'high' drops to 63.6 which might not be the best for up and down riding tho the sentinel at 64 performed way way better as an all rounder than i thought it would. Just an easy, fun bike to ride with loads of stability and grip. So the La Sal fits in there too based on geo and versatility. Hooray for pricing and the local support adds some peace of mind but I have serious doubts about long term durability of such a light frame that's built for hard riding from a company who hasn't had a viable option in this category until now. So I still need to throw a leg over one sometime this year and FWIW the YT rolling circus is passing thru UT in September so hopefully I'll demo the Jeffsy29 and also REVEL bikes has a demo in Ogden and Kaysville on 6 /14 & 6/15 and I'm keen to try the Rascal. Revel confirmed it's okay to run a 150mm fork so it looks to be a direct competitor to the sb130. Too many cool bikes to obsess about these days! Are you on a Instinct?

@ianswilson815: Yeah you could say the spec is even better on the LS, tho I like Ibis' in house wheels, Bike Yoke makes good shiz, Deore 4 pots.... anyway yeah better overall spec on the LS.

Ibis must be flattered that their bike has become the 'do it all' benchmark in this category...... but also pissed that a wonky d2c company can build a bike as good as theirs. Both are on my list as potential next bikes.

@matthelm1: And the lowest 2 builds are each about $500 less than the comparable Ripmo builds..... up to the consumer if that's worth it. 30 day return policy is nice.

@MarcusBrody: Agreed. They now finally have some legit mountain bikes in their lineup with the Signal & Las Sal Peaks, not to mention their fatbike and ebike, which I think will sell well. They shoulda rebranded last year before dropping the new Signal Peak. Oh well. Vinyl wrap the frame in black, including the decals.
