    10 BEST MOUNTAIN BIKES OF 2012
    Mountain bikes have drastically improved from 15 years ago when front-suspension-only hardtails and V-brakes were the norm. Technology is evolving exponentially to maximize performance, comfort, and efficiency while catering to the demands of individual riders. From wheel size to suspension to component-quality, riders can be picky about what they purchase. Plus, bike companies continue to up the ante producing dozens more models every year.
    The result? A massive, drool-enducing bike market, thatís sometimes so daunting, itís overwhelming to choose. No sweat. We did the research for youóMenís Fitness narrowed down this yearís bikes to the ten best. The only tough part for you? Picking just one.
    Yeti SB-95

    Yeti SB-95

    Yeti introduced its popular Switch Technology suspension to rave review last year with the 26-inch SB-66, and then brought it to the realm of 29ers with the newer SB-95. The unique platform uses an eccentric pivot mechanism that changes direction mid-stroke (about 100 mm into the travel) to control chainstay length and maximize pedal efficiency. The 29er iteration has 5 inches of travel for a plush ride and smooth climbing that doesnít sacrifice small-bump sensitivity and still corners like a 26er. Save up for a new set of tires, though. The factory set wears out quickly. (Frame only: $2,250; Compete bike from $3,400; yeticycles.com)

    Any kind of jacking is a given, within the contents of which the article was written, and therefore, no mention was made, nor was necessary, as jacking is presumed to be evident in all such cases.
