5010 Carbon 27.5+ S Reserve Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Seeing modern trail bikes are moving into slacker realms to accommodate a new breed of riders pushing themselves harder and faster, the reinvigorated Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon 27. 5+ S Reserve Complete Mountain Bike offers a thoroughly modern geometry that's longer and slacker than before with the addition of a flip-chip for a tailored feel to your particular riding style. However, Santa Cruz didn't forget what made the original 5010 a smashing success with a large contingent of trail riders, infusing the original bike's agile handling and snappy acceleration into the newest model, so you're not left out to pasture if you prefer a bike that feels like a nimble sports car out on the trail. The third generation 5010 is slacker than ever, dropping to a 66. 5-degree head tube angle in its high setting and a more gravity-friendly 66. 1-degree head tube angle in the lowest setting. The addition of a flip-chip makes this all 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 those steep descents with imposing rocks and roots threatening to derail your balance. 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 their "new" plus-sized 2. 6-inch tires, which deliver all the traction and bump-smoothing benefits of a traditional 2. 8-inch tire, but without feeling overly vague or excessively heavy. This 2. 6-inch tire really gives you confidence to monster truck your way across the rockiest stretches of trail, but without worrying about the tire squirming under hard braking and cornering like a larger 2. 8-inch tire. Another major update to the design of the third generation 5010 lies in a slightly longer reach that's...

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.
