Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 2.0 Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame - 2017 description:
In the ever-changing mountain bike industry, keeping tabs on all the different numbers at play can be a frustrating exercise. Head tube angles, reach, axle widths, Q factors, chainstay lengths--they add up to a number salad that'll leave your head spinning whether you're a just getting onto the race scene or a knobby tire veteran who cut his teeth during park sessions on the Blur 4X. Santa Cruz's 2017 5010 2. 0 Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame makes the numbers game easy. It enjoys the same benefits of the 5010's 2. 0 remix, so it's longer, lower, slacker, and a bit plusher while retaining the all-mountain properties that made the 5010 such an immediate success. When it comes to any trail type this side of gravity courses, 5010 is the only number you need to know. The 2. 0 geometry represents a marked departure from the original 5010, which SC first rolled out in 2013.

The biggest change is to the head tube, which drops one degree from 68 to 67 degrees. That's the same as the previous Bronson model, and it situates the 5010 2. 0 just this side of slacked-out enduro monster. The frame's reach and bottom bracket follow suit, with the former tacking on an additional 20-25mm, depending on size, and the latter dropping slightly. The combined result of these apparently minor tweaks is a longer, lower, more stable frame that eagerly attacks lines that most other five-inch bikes have to think twice about. If the 5010 2. 0's front end and bottom bracket are about slack excess, then the changes out back are about tightening things up for more pedaling efficiency and cockpit versatility. The seat tube is steeper, longer, and wider, which benefits both the ups and downs of all-mountain riding. While grunting over the crux of a climb or grinding speed on singletrack, the steeper angle n..
