5010 2.1 Carbon C Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Santa Cruz 5010 2. 1 Carbon C Mountain Bike Frame hits a true sweet spot between timid cross country bikes and aggressive enduro machines. A proven partner for endurance specialists, as well as a favorite trail bike of the Santa Cruz Syndicate downhill squad, the 5010 proves that sometimes less really is more, especially in this value-conscious build. The 5010's subtle inclination towards a wilder style of riding befits its lineage. It's a direct descendant of the legendary Blur 4X, a groundbreaking machine that was a dual slalom ripper that could happily be pedaled on day-long rides. The family resemblance is crystal clear, as the 5010's combination of comfortable cockpit position and slalom-inspired cornering make it a truly rewarding partner for riders of nearly any skill level. With 5 inches of VPP suspension, the 5010 has enough travel on tap to make the most of technical trails, without dulling the ability for the rider to push it to the edge. As with all VPP bikes, the 5010's counter-rotating links are carefully arranged to resist activation by pedaling forces, all but eliminating unwanted bobbing under power. This being a later iteration of VPP, it's tuned to provide more midstroke support than previous generations of the VPP platform, giving the rider a better feel for the terrain, and a livelier ride feel. Of course, the poised cornering and playful attitude that has come to define the 5010 are largely due to its highly refined geometry. The 67-degree head tube angle remains stable at speed, while still agile enough to initiate a change of direction. At 16 inches, the 5010 has shorter chainstays than any of Santa Cruz's other trail bikes, further enhancing its willingness to rail berms and dive into off-camber corners. The bottom bracket sits 13. 1 inches off the ground, just high enough to avoid excessive pedal strikes while remaining settled in situations where aggressive lean angles are required. It's a setup that forgoes the longer-is-better ...

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.
