Hit the Trails with a Yeti Cycles Mountain Bike
Since 1985, Yeti has been making mountain bikes to a very high standard. eBay offers a wide range of Yeti bikes, both new and used, at reasonable prices. If you are looking to customize your bike, you can also find Yeti Cycle bike frames and parts on eBay.
Basic types of mountain biking and their associated bikes
Before getting into the nitty-gritty of just what kind of mountain bikes Yeti Cycles produces and what they can do, here are some of the basic types of mountain bikes:
- Cross-Country: You'll need great endurance and efficiency for this event. A large wheel size of at least 27.5 inches is recommended here, but larger Yeti Cycles wheels are recommended. Aim for a rear travel somewhere in the range of 115-130 millimeters.
- Enduro or All-Mountain Riding: Enduro events have more varied and difficult terrain, so you'll need a bike with a strong suspension that's tough enough to be able to take a beating. A rear travel somewhere between 130 and 165 millimeters and a Yeti Cycles wheel size of 27.5 inches are optimal here.
- Trail Riding: Rear travel in the range of 115-130 millimeters and a 29-inch wheel size is what you should shoot for with these Yeti Cycles.
