5010 Carbon CC 27.5 X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Santa Cruz hasn't forgotten what made the original 5010 a smashing success with a large contingent of trail riders, building on its strengths and updating some things to make this third generation the best 5010 yet. For the 2019 model year, Santa Cruz pushes the 5010 Carbon CC 27. 5 XO1 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike into slacker and longer realms for increased competency at higher speeds demanded by modern trail bikes, yet it retains the original bike's razor-sharp handling and pedaling efficiency that cemented it as a versatile rig for everything from all-day epics in the mountains to spirited trail rides winding across the local forest network. 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 if you're seeking the massive traction and smoother ride quality of plus-sized rubber. If you'd like to run a higher volume tire than what's spec'd on this particular build, we'd recommend going with tires in the range of 2. 5 to 2. 6 inches. We feel these newly sized tires provide all the benefits of plus-size tires--namely monstrous traction and plow-anything confidence over loose rocks and rubble--all without the significantly heavier feel and tendency to squirm under hard cornering you'd experience with a larger 2. 8-inch tire. Another major update to the design of the third generation 5010...

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.
