That’s awesome, Kashima stanchion and Bomber cast. That’s a great combo

Just picked up this 17’ Santa Cruz 5010 CC XT. Awesome build and my first personal Santa Cruz or nonetheless Carbon full suspension. Going to do some back to back comparisons with my aggressive Hardtail. Do any of you know if the stock Fox DPS that was changed to a rockshox monarch plus rct3 is a upgrade or is it a downgrade? Ignore the red pedals. Just installed some matching blue pedals.

The Monarch Plus rct3 is definitely an upgrade from the DPS. I currently have a DPS on my 2018 5010 and strongly dislike it. Poor bottom out resistance, can get really chattery when going fast, and blows through the travel far too easily.

yeah the rockshox stuff is way better than the fox stuff in the smaller aircan realm. when it gets to bigger travel bikes though, the fox shocks are a lot better than the super deluxes, in my experience.
