Added a comment about feature Bike vs. Bike - Transition Patrol Carbon or Yeti SB130 Turq? 11/6/2018 1:14 PM

I still don't see the price to value on carbon. the sweet TR Patrol weighs in at 31.8. My Jeffsy weighs that without pedals. Add a half pound more weight for that and it puts me at 32.3. My complete YT plus pedals and grips cost less than the frame alone of the TR. I could easily put lighter cranks or carbon bars, etc, on it and come in at or under. And the YT climbs fairly well.

Added a comment about feature SPOTTED: Electronically-Actuated RockShox Reverb Dropper Post 10/31/2018 2:03 PM

Hm. Maybe I'm lucky with my Reverb, but I haven't had a single problem with it in 9 months of riding. No bleeds, no lock outs, no hot weather problems (90 degree summer), no cold weather problems (snow rides).
At some point I might put a Wolf Tooth on it because I hate the plunger, but it isn't because it doesn't work.

I'll give you less effort on the shifter. The rest of it? meh. Internal routing. Accuracy? That remains to be seen.

Added a comment about product review Another New Yeti: See the SB130 Trail Bike 9/20/2018 9:31 AM

$5,200 for a GX build. No wonder DTC is eating their lunch.
Bike looks awesome, though.

The real question is whether they will be consumer oriented and just raise the price by their wholesale cost or if they will be dicks and raise prices based on full retail and yell tarrifs, what can we do?

Hey, fair enough! It is pretty good that you are on here responding to user comments. And that adjust-ability really is legit. I think the original question was via email on Amazon.

That lever really looks sweet. However, I have to say, I was pretty turned off on your company, PNW, when a query about a dropper post went unanswered a while back. Never got an answer so I went with your competition.

Beautiful bike, but there is no way it was designed with a charcoal pencil.... Kind of silly IMHO.

I don't know, Jeff. If I was a first time buyer and I saw a $3,500 price tag, I'd probably just take up hiking. Or, just shop for a Giant, Marin, or other brand that actually has entry level bikes priced accordingly. I do agree with the bike shop angle, though.

Agreed. Not sure why anyone would buy a Kona these days. Totally overpriced bro brand now. Makes me sad as I love my old Four. It was a good buy at $1,300 in 2008. For $3k, it would be any of the Transition bikes. But, for my money, I spent $2K and got a Jeffsy.
