Stigmata Carbon CC Frameset by Santa Cruz Bicycles
A lot has changed in the time since Santa Cruz resurrected its Stigmata in carbon back in 2015. At its launch, riders loved its amazing versatility across seldom maintained gravel roads, mid-week road hammerfests, mellow singletrack, and of course, cyclocross. During that time the only disc brake standards that really existed came from the mountain bike world as evidence of its front 15mm thru-axle and post-mount disc brakes.

The Stigmata receives some modern geometry tweaks that place it solidly in contention with the herd of high-end all-road and gravel bike options, with a 71. 5-degree head angle, 74-degree seat angle (based on a 54cm model), and lower bottom bracket height that varies by frame size to account for the crank length spec. You'll also find improved fits for smaller riders with two fork offsets to improve trail geo numbers at the extreme ends of the size spectrum 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 fr...
