Product Description
5010 2.1 R Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Emphasizing playful handling over the brute force of an enduro sled, the Santa Cruz 5010 2. 1 R Complete Mountain Bike is a razor-sharp trail scalpel that's efficient enough for epic rides in the mountains and responsive enough to challenge friends on hot laps around the local loop. This 5010 features Santa Cruz's aluminum construction for reliable strength without dropping all your precious loot on a pricier carbon model. Budget-conscious riders will be happy to know that geometry stays congruent with all frames in the 5010 line-up, allowing those without stacked bank accounts to reap the same benefits of playfulness and agility on the trail. Seeing the first generation of 5010 drew inspiration from the nimble leanings of the Blur TR, it was inherently more playful than anything else in Santa Cruz's line-up when it was launched in 2013. Now that bikes have grown slacker, longer, and lower, it only makes sense the second-gen 5010 has adapted to reflect the push towards modernized trail geometry, with a longer reach and wheelbase in conjunction with a slacker head tube angle of 67 degrees. These changes create a roomier cockpit, so you're more comfortable and confident on the descent, as well as making it inherently more stable at high speeds. Best of all, these geometry changes don't alter the quick-handling nature of the 5010, as it features snappy 16. 7-inch chainstays and a low-slung bottom bracket of 13. 1 inches. Looking at the 5010's VPP suspension, you'll be pleased to note it underwent a subtle redesign for 2017, which improves the suspension durability and overall performance. The upper link is now connected to the top tube for greater stiffness, as well as more stand-over clearance for shorter riders. The lower link resides above the bottom bracket, protecting it from damaging rock strikes and flinging trail debris. These changes extend to the suspension's performance as well, with the VPP suspension exhibiting heightened sensitivity to small bumps, a...

November's Featured Park
The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
November's Animal
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.
