Field Test: Yeti SB130
@Golden-G, yes, the Bronson had carbon wheels as well, and a lower frame only price.

Oops. We'll work on tracking that down.

You're welcome, I'm glad you enjoyed it. And there are still a few more Field Test videos on the way.

Daniel's 5'9", and Sarah's 5'7". Yeti's sizing chart suggests that the medium is best suited to riders from 5'7" to 5'11", so they're both within that range.

@jclnv, that's correct - the Giant and the Stumpy both have carbon wheels, and a less expensive frame only price.

@eeeasy, you commented pretty much the same thing in the SB150 article. I specifically mentioned the amount of tire clearance, and the fact that the frame wasn't super stiff. Here's what I wrote, "I've been putting additional miles in on the SB150 in preparation for a longer term review, and have had a number of riders ask about tire clearance. More and more 2.6" tires are hitting the market, but the SB150's max tire size is 2.5", and even that might be pushing things a bit depending on which tire and rim combo you use. I've been running a 2.4" Maxxis Minion DHR II WT for the last two months, a time period that's included multiple extra-muddy rides, and haven't run into any frame clearance issues at all - the paint on the chainstays is untouched." It's possible that there was an issue with some frames, but so far I have zero tire rub marks with that 2.4" tire, and the amount of flex isn't anything out of the ordinary. Believe me, if we had an issue we would have reported it. That's what we're here to do, but if we don't experience something firsthand we're not going to spread rumors based on a few vocal internet commenters.

@Purpledragonslayer, the bike was reviewed as we received it - it wasn't a 'nonproduction shock', it was a shock with a tune that has since been revised. There was no intent to mislead on our part - that tune was changed after bikes had already been on the market. In any case, although the suspension impressions would likely alter a bit with a different shock, the other portions of the review, which discuss the bike's fit and component spec, still stand. As for the rest of your comment, I kind of lost you there. Good luck with the healing, and go easy on the pain meds.

@NinetySixBikes, those are nice details, and they're mentioned here: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/first-ride-2019-gt-force-amp-sensor.html. We don't go quite as in depth in the Field Test videos, which means not all the little tidbits get mentioned.

@AgrAde, I think the choppiness is likely shock related. The anti-squat values on this bike aren't super high; after speaking with GT it sounds like the compression tune was more than likely the issue. That tune has since been changed from a medium to a low tune, which should make the back end a little more willing to respond to smaller impacts.
