Field Test: Yeti SB130
@jkipp: We've been riding these bikes for several months since these videos were shot in August - just because there's not a "long-term review" posted doesn't mean that we haven't spent ample time riding them.

Field Test: Yeti SB130
@Lagr1980: No doubt, there are a lot of really good bikes out there but for the Field Test, we focused on new platforms for 2019 and bikes that we could get a hold of in the appropriate timeframe. Plenty of other reviews and videos are in the pipeline.

Field Test: Giant Trance Advanced 29
Hey Tom - A lot of the west side of 99 in the Valley. A bit of a mix...we were riding the slightly heavier duty bikes on Dark Crystal although the Trance did make its way over there and was a good time.

@irck: Not a dumb question - people do it differently but I measure from where you would be on the saddle with your sitbones (once it compresses if it's soft) to center of the BB - that keeps it uniform with different saddles - It's not an exact science but gets things pretty darn close.

@OzarkBike: I have a shortish reach and the medium fits me best. As we mentioned in the review, sizing up to a large isn’t out of the question for someone on the cusp of sizes.

It's efficient. I get a little bit of bob running the pedaling platform open but even at that, it stays well supported and is what I would consider an excellent all-rounder both up and down. It is a solid "little" bike that packs a big punch when you aim it downhill.

Not as much as you would want to think. It surprised me and I would say that this is very in line with the previous generation 27.5" Trance as far as what it's capable of, and I have ridden both.

@Jaybirdy: Yep - More bikes is always a good decision.

@rambis123: The 429 climbs really well. If you're on the correct size, which you should be anyways, I wouldn't hesitate to get a Trance, it's a ripper and does climb well, it's just as steep as some other bikes in the seat tube area. Take for instance the SB130 - a little more bike than the Trance but similar and with a lot steeper seat angle so you're more over the front.
