XTR Di2 Santa Cruz 5010 XL

$5000 CAD
For sale Very well taken care of Santa Cruz CC 5010 in XL. Not much to upgrade on this bike. -XTR Di2 with XT 11-46 rear cassette installed last year - 15 rides -Battery hidden in the steer tube and all wires hidden in the bars. -Race Face Next SL Cranks with 28t front ring (cranks 2 years old - ring last year 15 rides) -Magura Brakes Trail Carbon with single finger lever upgrade and SL rotors. 2 years old -Pro Tharsis carbon bar 31.8 with internal routing for Di2 Wires (15 rides) -Tharsis Stem 70mm (also have a 50mm ) (15 rides) -Reverb post - A2 Version but has the upgraded IFP installed and overhauled last spring (15 rides) -Wheels are Carbon rims(30mm internal width) laced to DT Swiss 350 hubs and sapim Spokes - 3 seasons old but mint - no cracks, dings ect. (have spare spokes that will go with the bike) -Chris King headset -XTR Pedals - -rear shock was originally a CTD but has been upgraded with an Evol Air can as well as the internals are upgraded to DPS - so it is basically a current gen shock - always done a complete overhaul every spring - this has 15 rides on it since it was serviced last - it has also been re-tuned for a heavier rider - Santa Cruz always came with a light tune however in the larger bikes they always struggled with mid stroke support - the medium tune along with the DPS internals from FOX have fixed this. -Fork is a Fox 36 RC2 and is currently set to 140mm - this has a newer CSU from about a year and a half ago as i nicked the old one with a rock and scrapped the Kashima - so i replaced it. Fork is serviced every Spring and int he fall had the lowers serviced despite only having 15 rides on it. -Schwalbe 27.5 x 2.6 tires. These were new last spring and as you can tell have very little wear. clearance is a bit on the tight side but as long as you aren't riding in mud they have enough clearance no problem....they actually measure out at a 2.5. I do have the rear shock set up with offset bushings to accommodate the height difference of going to the "plus" tire. Linkage bearings are in good shape and were replaced last spring - but will include a spare set with the sale of the bike. This bike was always well taken care of serviced proactively. The only blemish on the frame is a rear tire wear mark on the back of a seat tube which happened during a tire experiment but is not structural and is only cosmetic - see picture. This bike was build to be a solid reliable bike for a bigger guy at 225 lbs - Looking to send this to a good new home.

Ridden and Rated: 5 Four-Piston Brakes
@acali: But I know Pinkbike was at the Magura Press Camp where we rode MT7's on the New Carbine 29'r. seems like a lost opportunity.

Ridden and Rated: 5 Four-Piston Brakes
In a 4 piston brake shoot off why would you test the Trail version of the Magura Brake and not the MT7 which is their actual 4 piston brake?

Yamaha to Launch Their Own eMTB Lineup
@YamahaBicycles: I for one am excited about the prospect of having more companies and frankly bigger companies lobby and fund more access and more trails. We can whine all we want about e-bikes but they aren't going away. Embrace the new kid on the block and and work with the new kid to carve out an even better situation for all of us.

Thanks for reviewing something outside the box. Keep it coming! I'm pretty tired of reading fork review after fork review.
