 Handy has mad style but I can't wait to see what tech wizardry Emil Yourhandson has up his sleeve. Or at the end of his sleeve?

 Is this a subtle preview of the new 5010?

The release video of the previous gen 5010 was the original video here, so surely a the sequel might be related?

MX setup? Glovebox? Or at least a Red, with yellow lettering colorway?

 I guess it's cheaper than it's adult sibling
  • 22 0
 it's SC...so my guess is you're still talking like $3Gs
  • 15 1
 @preach: and that's with a shitty part spec
  • 2 0
 @singletrackjamaica: Right? NX/SX spec mini bike = $3k. You want XX1, XTR or AXS? $5k, $4.5k and $7k respectively

 I have a generic equivalent that was bought on Amazon for $20. Its been surprisingly strong & has put up with alot of hard landings & cases. Others “brands” are still available there but many are flimsy - hard to tell what’s what with quality.

 It's a pretty rad trick when the mini-bike version confuses me more than the real thing.

 I loved this, but is it wrong that the wheelbarrow was my favorite part?

 No helmet, no pads, this is not going to end well.

 I can't figure out how he made his hand do 360 degree rotations. Amazing editing.

 This immediately justified my $10K Santa Cruz purchase.

 Why would you buy just the frame? I mean for $3k more you can get entry level parts. But that sticker. Oh man, that sticker.

 Don't ask your wife for a Handy MacAskill, it won't end well

 I'd buy a Santa Cruz if it came with a mini toy finger bike.

 I see these ads for “custom” toy bikes made to order of your specific bike, pop up on Facebook quite often. But they seem super scam-ish. Anyone ever ordered one?

 Seriously hoping new 5010 is the awesome kind of mullet 27.5 front and 26 rear. Smaller mullet size would be super fun
  • 1 1
 Just like the bikes it’s exactly the same as the one they did 2 years ago for the last 5010 launch . It even has the same props in it
  • 1 0
 i lowk like it its pretty unique and cool to watch not as cool as yt izzo launch doe

 If this is where all the "dentist-money" from the Santa Cruz bikes goes, maybe it is not so bad after all. Wink
