Stigmata Carbon CC Ultegra Cyclocross Bike - 2019 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Bay Area has always been a hotbed for cyclocross racing in the States. What began as a way for European road pros to stay fit in the winter was quickly adopted by the cyclists in the area and organized races quickly popped up with many of the top racers hailing from this region. This tradition continuing to this day and the racing in the area still enjoys popularity. More recently, riders have also been discovering the endless miles of logging roads that provide a vast network of gravel adventures allowing for some excellent drop bar riding while avoiding the crowded tarmac. Even the mountain bike fanatics at Santa Cruz weren't immune to the slightly narrower tires and curly bar fun and it added its own version of a cross bike over a decade ago that had a four year run with the v1 Stigmata, complete with an alloy tubeset and cantilever brakes. We were a bit miffed when it disappeared from its lineup but figured with many of its mountain bikes utilizing carbon construction and disc brakes gaining traction in CX circles, a new version was on the horizon. Four long years later we were treated to the v2 Stigmata and with its release we got just what we expected in a new 700c bike from Santa Cruz and with the Stigmata Carbon CC Ultegra Complete Cyclocross Bike we finally get carbon fiber construction, disc brakes, and geometry versatile enough to tackle roads, mud and sand, and any other mixed terrain surface we might come across making up some of our favorite type of riding. We often think of the Stigmata as the mountain biker's road bike. It's plenty capable of hanging with the shaved leg set when pedaling perfect circles and racking up base miles, but if the idea of linking up endless forest service roads, or pinning a number to a skinsuit in the fall tickles your fancy, all you need is a simple tire swap and the Stigmata is happy to oblige. And even though most of the road bikes kicking around here in the office sport rim brakes, we certainly see the benefits...

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.
