Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 2.0 Carbon R2 Complete Mountain Bike 2017

Santa Cruz Bicycles' 5010 has long been a favorite an all mountain favorite, bridging the gap between enduro and trail with a versatility not often found in the wild.

This particular build gets a double chainring and Shimano's workhorse SLX componentry itself the beneficiary of a recent re working for a wide range of precise gearing. 2016's 2. 0 updates touch on almost every important aspect of frame geometry.
