Honestly I could care less what type of suspension it has. All bikes ride good now and this one will have electric help going up if it bobs a little.

More important to me is this SC can be sub 50lbs going downhill with the mullet setup and the right bits. But… lavender.

The Norco Range VLT and Commencal Meta Power AM will be 55lbs. I guarantee it.

First world problems.

This is the bike in question.
Santa Cruz decals would be swapped for black or metallic grey. Fork matched or blacked out. All other bits black or silver.

f*ck that's awful... it's almost pastel.

shred aren't you still a paint rep? the irony notwithstanding, maybe you can find a paintshop or wrap specialist to cover it. I got no dog in the hunt here, and the build looks awesome, and congrats on choosing not to have kids, but i'm with leroy. thats a bike designed for the colourblind.

No longer sell the paint.
I now sell the automated dispensers, shakers and mixers you see within those paint departments. Sales Account Manager - Western Canada is official title.

I have considered a wrap job like sleds as well. However spending a good chunk of change and adding a wrap cost too kind of sucks.

If someone could just tell me when the 2022’s
will be available I would wait. But suppler information on availability is pretty useless right now.

My buddy has one of those. Not my jam but it's a killer bike. I'd personally do the metallic brown one.

But saying that... fork decals are easy to have made these day.
Frame graphics... I redid my chameleon ones myself but SC sells kits if the color you're looking at is generic.

Get rid of the yellow and I think you're going in the right direction.

Of course I would do the copper one if available!
Copper Large only in the $16500.00 CAD build.

I'd ride it.

First guy thay said something gets a woopin'.


My DJ was not my first choice but once I ride it I don't see the color .

Plus I'm super duper color blind.......

I strongly dislike the looks of all the new lower link SC bikes. At this point it's almost a certainty that my next bike will not be an SC and that's a good part of the reason why. They have the least personality of any bikes out right now imo.

really leroy? i like the lower link but i have a moto based prejudice for keeping the weight low on the frame. but i've also owned a v10, nomad and bronson so i might have confirmation bias as well. but all those bikes rode really really well.

shred have you looked at the levo kenevo range?
fwiw spesh is really missing an opportunity to do an evil kneival levo special edition. they could paint it up all stars ad stripey like and make a website dedicated only to videos of riders not landing jumps on it. what a way to sell bikes!

I really liked my High Tower and the v10 I rented at Silver Star allowed me to ride above my pay grade lol.

I ride with a guy who has a copper Bullit, it is very nice. He did blow up the motor though but Santa Cruz came through with a replacement. He was originally told probably not until Sept and it popped in June.

I'm in the fence to sell and order something new or buy a coil fork and shock.

When I say lower link, I mean the new lower mount shock linkage on all their bikes... I love the way they ride but their new lower link mounted shock makes all their bikes indistinguishable and sort of ugly. I expect it'd make for a great riding e-bike though, gobs of traction.

Evel Kenevo Special Edition... don't even bother with the Levo part of it. Stars and stripes that bitch and let er rip
