    I always recommend doing frame protection.

    Right on, thanks! I talked to Fezzari when I ordered mine. The stuff they use is gloss. I just ordered a grey one with the deluxe kit so it will be installed when I get it.

    What do you guys think the best color combo is? I am thinking either cement (grey) with red fork or olive with black fork... On one hand I don't mind the red fork but I am thinking in terms of resale value further down the road, having a red fork might not be the best idea. I think you can request the black lowers on the RS Lyrik if they have it in stock.

    Has anyone seen these bikes in person that can comment on which color looks best in real life?

    Does the piggy back park of your shock smash the water bottle when the shock compresses?

    Mine showed up Thursday! Getting ready to take it out for the first time this morning! Pretty stoked! I like it so far pedaling around the house. Time to go get it dirty.

    Nope. Fezzari isnít affiliated with any other brand and manufacturers their own bikes.

    Anyone able to compare the LSP to the SB130. Demoing isnt an option for me. Ive been leaning toward the La sal but was thinking of putting the 160 Lyrik i have on a SB130 and build it up as a heavy duty trail bike. (I have all the other parts sitting in a box). The one big factor is the SB is $1K more. I can think of alot i could do with that extra money.

    Iíve ridden the SB130 but not a lot. Theyíre fairly similar in terms of geo, youíre just getting more travel out back.

    Downhill the La Sal blows it away if you ask me, not even close. Climbing is pretty comparable. Iíd get the la Sal all day over it.

    Even if youre mostly doing trail riding. Im concerned about pedalling efficiency on the La Sal

    Either way, i need to sell my Rallon first...

    Iíve spent a good two weeks of solid riding on the sb130 and it was great. Yeti has a way of making all their bikes feel 20mm deeper than they are out back. So itís actually really similar to the La Sal.

    Iím of the mindset that certain people get along with certain bikes better than others might - and I got along with the LSP much better than the 130. Both climbing and descending.

    That was the biggest surprise for me on the LSP - how well it climbs (loads better than my Rallon). Not sure why honestly.

    I had a friend tell me that heíll never buy another bike that requires a climb switch. I didnít understand that. The SB platform is obviously a more sophisticated suspension platform and I never felt the need to flip the switch. But the LSP with the climb switch engaged climbed better IMO and is loads more active on the DH.

    Just my opinion and everyone is different. Hard to go wrong these days.

    Hereís a link to a video of the La Sal and 130 in action

    I agree, it climbs just as well as my 2018 Trance with the maestro vpp. Maybe even a little better, as I think the La Sal has better traction. I was concerned it would be to much bike for my normal local riding spot being 2" longer than my Trance. I just got done at that spot and did about 10 miles out there. It's a more cross country up and down type trail system with tight corners, trees, rocks and roots everywhere. I didn't feel it was any more work than the Trance. I think they have really hit a sweet spot on the geometry and suspension on this bike. It does everything very well so far.

    Edit- just saw posts about the climb switch. I'm running mine full open. I don't like switching it. I forget about it and forget to open it back up for the downs. No issues leaving it open. It pedals well.
