5010 Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Its not surprising to us that MacAskill's bike of choice lands the spot as one of the most fun bikes in Santa Cruz's lineup, with flickable precision, a playful suspension, and just enough travel to eat up the chunder the 5010 Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame holds a special place in our quivers as well.

We'd recommend going with tires in the range of 2. 5 to 2. 6 inches, as we feel these newly sized tires provide all the benefits of going to plus-size tiresa"namely monstrous traction and plow-anything confidence over l...

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.
