I raced for Santa Cruz for 2 years and this was far and away my favorite bike. I run the C carbon layup because the CC was a touch too flexy to be a trail bike.
Lets be real, this is the true bike you're looking for. I raced and podiumed pro 50 mile XC marathon events on this thing, then put on thicker tires and took it out for 30 mile trail days around Tahoe. It was ridden hard, but always maintained and cleaned and does not have any cracks, heavy scratches etc.
The front is lifted via a 120mm step cast 34 fork, the rear has 100mm of plush plus a Kashima dropper post.
You can decide on the rest of the build.
Bars - carbon raceface 760 or aluminum raceface 780 width
drivetrain - XX1 11 speed (what I choose to run) or GX eagle
Wheels - Ethirteen Carbon XCX wheels
Brakes- Level TL
Tires - WTB trail tires
Saddle - WTB Deva or other
This thing can lay out fast miles or play along technical single track, basically 2 bikes in one. The lockout remote lets you lock up all the suspension with a flick to climb quickly.
I've sold my Hightower, my stigmata, and my 5010, but this was my favorite and its hard letting go. Take it off my hands for all the adventures it still has in it.
