Santa Cruz Bicycles Stigmata Carbon Rival 22 Complete Cyclocross Bike - 2017

As much as we would love to have a fully kitted out, top-end rig specifically dedicated to each of our road, cross, and gravel adventuring dreams, that isn't exactly a realistic option for most of our bank accounts. Luckily, the 2017 Santa Cruz Bicycles Stigmata Carbon Rival 22 Complete Cyclocross Bike covers all the bases as a multi-strada savant that can easily handle all manner of road, gravel, singletrack, or cyclocross excursion. Dressed up in SRAM's workhorse Rival drivetrain with a road and gravel oriented 50/34 compact chainrings, powerful hydraulic brakes, and versatile Maxxis tires in a washboard-smoothing 40mm width, this bike is ready for whatever surface the day brings your way. The Stigmata Carbon's modern geometry hits the sweet spot between super aggressive race rocket and overly calm endurance rig, with a 72 degree head angle, 73. 5 degree seat angle (based on 56cm model). Its 69mm bottom bracket drop falls neatly between European 'cross high and road racing low, providing comfortable clearance for unexpected obstacles. Even with its race-inspired naming convention, the Stigmata's geometry allows for versatility beyond the barriers, meaning it's just as confident and composed grinding over gravel back roads or exploring light-duty singletrack. Santa Cruz designs the Stigmata to accept tires up to 41mm in width, allowing you to drop the pressure (especially when running tubeless) for a more comfortable ride through rougher terrain. Conversely, toss on a set of skinny road tires to throw down on the local group ride or noodle through the city on a Sunday social.The Carbon C features a full carbon fiber frame boasting the same stiffness, durability, and strength as Santa Cruz's top-line Carbon CC frame. It's just made with a slightly less costly carbon fiber that carries a tiny bit more weight and brings a big reduction in overall price.Thru-axles at the front and rear add poise and confidence for better tracking across rutted-out straightaways ...

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
