Field Test: Yeti SB130
We tried not to go too deep into price judgements because value is subjective, but the Giant has carbon wheels and a less expensive frame only price.

Field Test: Yeti SB130
@ReformedRoadie: yeah we considered using "control" tires and may do that next year. The trouble is that we were riding these bikes pretty squarely in their intended use/terrain, and at $4K+ it's CRAZY if bikes don't come with appropriate tires.

Field Test: Yeti SB130
@bridgermurray: Regarding the Sensor, our findings were validated when GT confirmed that they did a running change on their shock tunes to address the issues we described. The question is: were other media outlets on the same shock tune as us? :) As for the Trance feeling "squishy," our review touches on that, saying "the suspension stays very active" during climbing," and "there was a little bit of motion when we were climbing on this bike." It's got some bob under pedaling, but being short travel and light weight keeps it an excellent climber—especially in Levy's favourite (lol) climb mode. It's also worth remembering that in our test it was compared to trail bikes, while other media may have been comparing it to other 110mm-115mm "marathon" style bikes.

Yeah that's something we should look at doing more of—comparing some bikes within their own product families. Stumpjumper ST vs normal vs EVO. SB130 vs 150. etc.

@endlessblockades: I get all squirrelly when I see "Pink Bike" or "PinkBike.Com".

Field Test: GT Sensor Carbon Expert
UPDATE: GT just reached out to say they've adjusted the shock tune on the Sensor since production of the one we rode in the Field Test. We'll have to see if the new tune fixes the issues we had with the bike—but it could explain why all our reviewers felt one way about the bike and some other riders didn't have the same issues.
