THE SB130 LR CLIMBS LIKE A WELTERWEIGHT BUT DESCENDS LIKE MIKE TYSON (MINUS THE WHOLE EAR BITING THING.)
THE REBEL YELL OF THE MIDDLE CHILD. FED A STEADY DIET OF SUPER-TECH CLIMBS. THE SB130 WAS BUILT TO CRUSH THE BIGGEST TERRAIN. NO TRAIL “TOO” ANYTHING. POINT IT UP OR DOWN. ENTER A LAST-MINUTE ENDURO JUST FOR THE EFF OF IT. WE SAY NO ONE BIKE CAN RULE ALL. BUT THE SB130? ONE BIKE THAT RULES.
The regular SB130 is a great climber. The Lunch Ride is a good climber — It’s heavier and a little slacker, but it still keeps a lot of what makes the SB130 such a great uphill bike. Namely, the Switch Infinity suspension platform. If you haven’t tried a bike with it yet, get in here and test one out. It has a lot of “get up and go” without feeling too stiff or getting hung up while under power. It remains fairly active in the first third of travel, allowing the rear wheel to move up and over obstacles while climbing. But, it isn’t so active that you feel like you’re bobbing up with every pedal stroke. I never felt the need to use the lockout lever. Rather, I needed traction for the techy climbs on my test trail. Keeping the shock in open mode provided the most traction and kept me from bouncing off every rock on the climb.
The SB130 LR’s geometry keeps your weight nicely centered while climbing. It keeps your hips above the bottom bracket for good power to the pedals. The front end is a little slack and the front wheel can tend to flop around like most bikes in the 65° range. It’s not extra floppy due to the steep seated position keeping enough weight over the front of the bike, though. The Lunch Ride is a really long bike. It made some of the tighter sections of the climb more difficult. One section in particular gave me a tough time. It was a steep bump-littered pitch with a tight 90° right turn at the top. I couldn’t for the life of me get the bike around it — mostly due to my lack of skill, but the long bike certainly wasn’t helping. If you live in a place with really tight uphill turns, this is something you’d want to consider.
The last thing keeping the Lunch Ride form being a great climber is the weight. I’m not one to be too picky about how much my bike weighs, but an extra pound or two can be felt. My bike weighs a good 32 lbs. ready to ride. It’s not super heavy but it’s not a flyweight either. I could go lighter with the build (thinking of tires here), but I don’t think I want to. Over the years I’ve come to find that a heavier bike might slow you down on the climbs, but a flat tire will ruin your ride.

MORE TRAVEL THAN A WHITE VANBig mountain riding is a nomadic existence. Meeting friends in farflung car parks. Pinpointing trails you’re not sure are even rideable. Sending the ones you know are. Shiny new bling gets battered, shattered and bruised. That’s life. That’s how it should be. That’s why the Nomad exists.
Get creative with your surroundings.The 5010 turns obstacles into features. Its nimble, poppy feel makes even the most mundane rides feel like they're loaded with features to hop, skip and jump over. It's the kind of bike that makes new trails feel as familiar as the back of your hand. 27.5 is the fun-sized wheel size. Smaller wheels provide an ideal balance between toughness and weight saving making them the most fleet-footed (or quick fingered) whether launching logs or weaving through stumps. With its quick and agile character, the 5010 has become a go-to plaything for progressive riders the world over and the only contender on any backyard trails.
