    Coming off a SB4.5, where should my sit bones land?

    Title starts to tell the tale, but I am looking to upgrade my geo a bit from my SB4.5, but the only bike I have been able to demo (and only one I will) is the SB130. Needless to say I loved it!

    But not one to pass up a chance to be obsessive I started looking at the bikes that are very comparable and it comes down to SB 130, Offering, Jeffsey and the Rascal from Revel bikes.

    I know there are a bunch of comparisons of the 130 and Offering, but anyone out there have some good experience comparing these others?

    Thanks a bunch!

    If I loved a bike, I wouldn't ask a bunch of cubicle jockeys to voice an opinion, I'd do demos or I'd just get it ... unless you're stuck in a cubicle and need to do something to pass the time

    I enjoy other people's opinions though, that's what makes life interesting! And unfortunately the only Evil dealer is 3 hrs away and YT&Revel being direct-to makes finding a dealer with a demo a little tough.

    Suggested as another quality bike comparison to the Rascal, which is on your radar I believe.

    Did not mean that to come off snarky, and apologize if it did! Should have said I hadn't even thought about the Ibis.

    There is not a bike out there that doesnít have a fan club.

    Reviews have become advertising, itsyall so subjective.

    Iím going to Outerbike tp check out the bikes, doubt Iíll buy anything, but itís alwsys interesting to compare my bike to other bikes.

    Go to a demo or see if any Evil owners on MTBR are local to you, then arrange a meet up

    That's my predicament. Nearest demon tour stop is next July, nearest dealer doesn't keep stock and can't find any locals that ride one.
