5010 2.1 Carbon XE Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Emphasizing playfulness and agility over the brute force of long-travel enduro sleds, the Santa Cruz 5010 2. 1 Carbon XE Complete Mountain Bike is purposely suited for epic rides in the mountains and hot laps around the local forest loop. The 5010's nimble leanings originally drew inspiration from the slalom-inspired Blur, making it inherently more playful than anything in Santa Cruz's line. This particular version of the 5010 features Santa Cruz's Carbon C frame, which provides a heightened level of stiffness and strength over aluminum frame options. It's also a bit lighter than aluminum, meaning you'll reap benefits in efficiency when you're riding across long distances. Now that bikes have grown slacker, longer, and lower, it only makes sense the second generation 5010 has adapted to reflect changes in modern trail geometry. This second-gen 5010 has a longer reach and wheelbase in conjunction with a slacker head tube angle of 67 degrees, as well as slammed chainstays of only 16. 7 inches. By making the front end longer, you'll find the 5010 is much roomier in the cockpit, without needing a longer stem for riders on the upper end of the sizing chart. These changes in geometry retain the original bike's agility on the trail, yet they instill a bit more confidence when you're dropping into steep descents and holding your line through rough terrain, such as rock gardens and gnarled sections of roots. By slamming the chainstays to sub 17-inch status, you'll find the 5010 is highly adept at cleaning tight switchbacks and roosting around berms with flickable precision--hinting to its roots as a slalom-inspired trail whip. Looking to the 5010's VPP suspension, you'll be pleased to note it carries the 2017 redesign for improved suspension performance, increased durability, and better stand-over clearance. The lower linkage is neatly tucked above the bottom bracket, which protects it from damaging rock strikes and flinging debris kicked up when you're rallying over lo...

Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
