Maybe so! Original plan was to keep it, but too similar really to what I bought for it to make sense.

Awesome! Great photo. LOOK at that thing. I may be a SJ fanatic but always love those Santa Cruz frames. That thing's begging to tare it up! That's a slick fender on there too. I have a full-size mucky nuts but those DO look a little cheap.

Gorgeous bike in that blue too man,

Just needs a dropper unless you're really short.

Awesome bike. I fully cannot imagine life without a dropper though. What don't you like about them?

I'm old school too but I can't imagine riding an MTB without one. Also I have long legs so my saddle height is pretty up there. Can't even visualize how awkward that would be trying to descend while high-posting.

Wait. There's seatposts that are not droppers? Like no push button to lower the seat? How do you ride it?

I can't slam the saddle all the way down when I want to as it adds an extra inch on the seatpost, it doesn't seem much, but it annoys me.

Not a fan of another lever on the handlebar either. Don't really care about the extra weight, but all these little things together, it just ain't for me.

Just got this beast and, can't wait to ride it! Had to throw that chainring on there it was too cool. Too bad the previous owner "didn't notice" that the shock was blown.

That’s awesome all the colors contrast, I’ve never seen a bike match colors so well. Nice bike bro
