Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 2.0 R2 Complete Mountain Bike 2017

When confronted with the necessity of renaming its new trail bike, Santa Cruz Bicycles opted for the NumLock equivalent of the name it had originally chosen, converting Solo to 5010. But given the 5010 2. 0 R2 Complete Mountain Bike's virtually limitless capabilities, SC could just as easily have named it the all mountain enduro trail machine bot XC. Of death.
