Stigmata Carbon CC Force 2x Gravel Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Since the revival of the Stigmata line in 2015, we've applauded Santa Cruz's choice to blend the best traits of all disciplines into one drop-bar machine that packs wide-reaching versatility a racing performance soul. Now equipped with even more range, thanks to the compact style of the SRAM Force eTap AXS 2x drive train, the Stigmata Carbon CC Gravel Bike extends the drop-bar riding possibilities to satisfy even the most demanding racer and weekend warrior. All of the new Stigmata frames sport Santa Cruz's top-shelf CC carbon lay-up, which delivers robust strength and stiffness alongside lightweight efficiency. The significantly revised carbon layup borrows knowledge gained from the mountain-going hardtail, the Highball, and knowledge gained when building Danny MacAskill's trials bike, to produce a ride yielding more compliance helping to smooth out the ride.

You'll also find two fork offsets to improve trail geo numbers at the extreme ends of the size spectrums as well as less toe overlap, and improved standover of 10-30mm depending on tire choice. These changes improve confidence and composure while grinding over gravel back roads or exploring light-duty singletrack, yet doesn't detract from its versatility on the 'cross course.Speaking of 'cross, UCI pro races place limitations on tire width with a maximum of 33mm, however, when venturing off the course, that's hardly our idea of plush.

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.
