Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 2.0 Carbon CC X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 description:
2016's 2. 0 revamp saw some big changes for the 5010, and Santa Cruz is happy to continue with that lauded 2. 0 geometry in the 2017 Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 2. 0 Carbon CC X01 Complete Mountain Bike.

The redesign is so pervasive that it touches on virtually every important frame dimension, with the biggest change coming in the head tube angle. The front end slacks out a full degree, dropping from 68 to 67 in a move that brings it in line with the previous Bronson model. The frame's reach and bottom bracket follow suit, with the former stretching out and the latter dropping slightly. Capping things off with a short stem helps preserve steering while taking advantage of that slack aggression.The rear triangle tightens up for more pedaling efficiency and cockpit versatility with a steeper, longer, and wider seat tube, which benefits both the ups and downs of all-mountain riding. While grinding over the crux of a climb or crushing speed on singletrack, the steeper angle nets a more ef...
