The Santa Cruz 5010 27. 5+ D Complete Mountain Bike hits a true sweet spot between cross country bikes like the Blur and Tallboy, and aggressive enduro machines like the Bronson or Megatower. It's a bike known for quick accelerations and spirited handling, but still able to hold it's own when the trails get technical and rowdy. For this third generation of the bike, Santa Cruz made the 5010 slacker and longer for more composure at higher speeds on rougher trails, yet it's still sprite and agile on twisty singletrack and possesses pedaling efficiency for multi-hour epic rides in the high mountains. Plus, the 5010 is just damn fun to ride, and encourages you to go for all the bonus lines you can find thanks to its playful handling on the trail. This third generation 5010 is the slackest yet, kicking the headtube angle back to 66. 5-degrees in its high setting and a gravity-fueled 66. 1-degrees in the lowest setting. The addition of a flip-chip makes this possible, meaning you'll have the ability to adapt the bike's geometry for different terrain and riding styles, whether you're seeking a bit more balanced feel with greater efficiency and climbing competency or you'd like it to flat out rip on steep descents with imposing rock gardens and drops that litter the trails, this bike is happy to accommodate. Not only does the flip-chip allow you to ride in a more slacked-out position if you so choose, but it also gives you ample clearance to run wider tires up to 2. 8-inches in width. Santa Cruz outfits this particular 5010 with its "new" plus-sized 2. 6-inch tires, which deliver almost all of the traction and bump-smoothing benefits of a traditional 2. 8-inch plus, without feeling overly vague or excessively heavy. This 2. 6-inch tire really gives you the confidence to mob over the rockiest stretches of trail, without worrying about the tire squirming under hard braking and cornering like a larger, lower pressure 2. 8-inch tire.

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.
