V10 Carbon 27.5 S Mountain Bike - 2019 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Contrary to popular belief, 27. 5 isn't dead. With the masses ogling over lofty wagon wheels, you might be mistaken, but with Santa Cruz hitting back with another year of ultimate downhill power on the V10 Carbon 27. 5 S Mountain Bike, you can rest assured that the nimble and ready wheel size is still relevant and rowdy as ever for taking on the steepest, gnarliest terrain, and balking at the boulders that have other bikes hiking back to the top to find the easier route down.

While the newest iteration of the 27. 5 V10 is a completely new bike from its predecessors, it continues the Santa Cruz tradition of bombproof carbon frames with superior stiffness and ride quality.

A flip-chip at the lower shock link changes between High and Low geometry positions, offering up either a 63. 7-degree or 63. 3-degree head tube angle, and a 14. 02in or 13. 82in bottom bracket height, respectively. A second flip chip in the rear axle alters the chainstay length by 10mm, giving you the option to lengthen the chainstays and wheelbase for added high-speed stability, or to optimize front and rear balance for your height and riding style. Together these geometry flip-chips let you tune your bike to suit different courses, whether they are steep, hand-built and wild trails, or wide-open and fast. In addition to the geometry changes, Santa C...

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.
