Yeti SB130 Lunch Ride – All You Can Eat!

Yeti SB130 Lunch Ride Custom

So, the 160mm fork and extended travel rear shock, about 137mm of total travel, on the SB130 make it a lunch ride. But what happens when you take that Yeti SB130 Lunch Ride suspension to the next level with a FOX 38 and FOX Float X2? Well its ready for the all day, sit in the restaurant till they kick you out all you care to eat Lunch Ride right?

SRAM AXS with XX1 Copper Chain

This X01 AXS kit is set off with an XX1 Copper Chain and a hint of accent color with the OneUp Chain Guide & Bash.

The orange upper guide helps with chain retention in rough terrain, or when you time backwards in corners, etc. You can see how the black bash guide sits slightly lower than the chain ring providing protection from rocks and logs you might come across.

Many riders think that the bash guide is only for riders really riding the super gnarly stuff, but, from my experience I’m much more likely to smack my chain ring trying to climb technical stuff.

Magua MT7 brakes, HC Rotor and i9 Hubs laced to WTB rims

So, let’s get it straight: Custom is still a thing! But, you might have to wait a bit for your dream parts.

We’re seeing a lot of riders take advantage of availability to get on trail while waiting for some bits. Example: custom Hope brakes or like Shimano Saint brakes that might have a long ship ETA riders are taking delivery with the stock brakes and then flipping them on the used market once the other bits come in. We’re seeing this with stock wheels too if you’re waiting for that dream King color or whatever.

In this bike’s case i9 has had great turnaround times and the turquoise hubs are a great accent to the orange fork and a nod to the Yeti racing heritage. These are handbuilt wheels by our team laced to WTB rims with DT Swiss Spokes. BikeCo has some of the best wheel builders in MTB and we are able to fine tune your build to your riding style, ground speeds and weight. Adding compliance or stiffness to the build depending on requirements makes a big difference in total traction.

Stopping this beast are 4 piston Magura MT7 HC3 brakes – which BikeCo keeps great stock on and are an easy update to your build!

Chris King Inset in Yeti SB130 Frame

Unlike pressfit headsets Inset options are relatively easy to change (and don’t add stress to the frame’s headtube driving cups in and out).

If your bike has a pressfit headset why not put in a rebuildable Chris King headset that will last the life of the frame?

If your bike, like the Yeti lineup, features Inset headsets the Chris King is still a lifetime headset with some basic maintenance. And available in a variety of colors like this Matte Mango you can accent your bikes’ cockpit with a touch of flare.
