Santa Cruz V10 priced to sell!!

$4000 USD
I have a 2010 Santa Cruz MTB V10 for sale. I am moving onto other forms of racing. This is a thuroughbred race bike and has been professionally maintained and loved for its whole life. Over $9,000 invested into this beauty. I truely hate to get rid of it however I need to get back into auto racing. Keep in mind it is a size "small" frame however I'm right between 5'6" and 5'7" and chose to ride the small over medium as a shorter headtube distance is often preferred for racing. Anodized black frame size small Fox RC4 rear shock Fox 40 fork DT swiss 5.1d hoops hand laced to 440 hubs Avid Elixer carbon brakes Sram XO complete drive train. Gamut USA pro chainguide Easton EA90 29" bars Sunline direct mount stem EC90 carbon fiber seat post Selle Itallia carbon fiber titanium railed seat. Professionally maintained by myself. My prior job was a Bike shop mechanic and sales for over 7 years. There are some VERY minor scuffs on fork lowers from ski lifts and shuttles at races. Stanchions are all in perfect condition. Frame has almost no scratches, however it is missing the Santa Cruz headbadge. Priced to sell! $4200 Reduced as of 04/02/2012 now only $4,000! I will entertain offers, but please serious offers only! Also the AUW is just a tad under 37 pounds. Awesome racing steed! Edit: now located in Tucson Arizona!

That^^^ was actually for the post under this post. BUT truthfully I think you are ignorant and mis guided, carbon fiber when properly taken care of cCAN be very strong. For instance most carbon fiber steer tubes on road bikes are rated at a higher pressure of frontal impact than most aluminum steer tubes. F1 cars trust carbon fiber not only in the body, but in the rotors for the brakes, as well as in the "cage" or "pod" that protects the driver. Carbon fiber CAN be weak with improper use, and unfortunately you are most likely basing all your claims on these cases, for instance: not using proper torque settings on handle bars seat posts etc, causing intenral hairline fracture, improper cutting techniques, and external scratch damage. Personally I don't fear it all, nor do I fear the new carbon V10, or any of the carbon bikes!

No, you have nothing to fear, the proper way of cutting carbon fiber is wrapping 2 layers of electrical tape on the spot you are going to cut, I can't tell you why it works, but it keeps the hacksaw blade from tearing or splintering carbon.
