Track Walk & Tech Randoms: Mont Sainte Anne DH World Cup 2022
@justinfoil: Fair enough, at least on that bike, and you're right, external routing/ zip ties would do the same. Santa Cruz's, for instance, just have front triangle, rear triangle, and the two links (and the bolts/sleeves that hold it together). When I've done bearing replacements, it's nice that you don't have to remove anything but the links, and everything kind of stays put in the stand. Not being a racer, I personally would take my frame looking clean all the time for the slight inconvenience the few times I have to fully pull the housing/ hoses through the frame rather than seeing it all. I do think that internal routing has to be done right for it to be worth considering. Better to not bother if it isn't fully guided on a simpler frame.

Track Walk & Tech Randoms: Mont Sainte Anne DH World Cup 2022
I'm all for internal routing for the rear brake. I always think of it like a third hand, just holding your stuff nearby (as seen in that picture). Doesn't seem to really be an inconvenience. I doubt they need to replace that brake hose very often, and it doesn't really affect anything if you need to bleed the brakes anyways. I could see how the shift housing would need replacing more often, but then they are externally routed more often on some bikes.

I mean... it keeps things together and close by. Don't really see any harm. Every time I've pulled my bike apart, I'm glad that my rear triangle just sits right next to where it should be, rather than having to hold it, or put it down elsewhere. It's like a personal frame holder haha.. Makes putting it all back together slighlty (let's emphasize that slightly) easier to just slap it all back together quickly. Plus, saves on having to zip tie all the stuff back down.

Pristine Custom Santa Cruz 5010 AXS

$8000 CAD
Hello! I have an almost new large Santa Cruz 5010 C, with a custom build, up for grabs. We get demo bikes every year through the shop I work at, and so this bike was my bonus bike for the year. Being my "for fun" bike, it saw nowhere near as much riding as my main whip. It honestly has 5 Seymour laps on it, and a pedally day in Squamish. The frame has been Ride Wrapped since day 1. This bike is a damn blast! Accelerates really quickly, and is really responsive. Keeps you on your toes, but rewards heavily with large smiles and laughs. $8000 OBO, buyer pays shipping and Paypal fees. Specs: Frame: Large 5010 C Stormbringer Purple Fork: 2021 Fox Factory 34 Grip2 140mm 44mm offset with One Up EDC top cap installed Shock: 2022 Fox Float X Factory Bar: Race Face Turbine R 760mm 20mm rise Stem: Race Face Turbine R 32mm Grips: Santa Cruz Brakes: Sram Code RSC Rotors: Shimano RT-86 203mm Shifter: GX AXS Derailleur: GX AXS Chain: Gold Sram XX1 Cassette: Gold Sram XX1 10-52T (not pictured, only has 2 rides on it) Cranks: Sram GX w/ Race Face 32T chainring Wheels: We Are One Union laced to I9 1/1 Tires: Maxxis Minion DHR2 EXO 2.4 3C Maxxgrip (F) Maxxterra (R) Seatpost: RockShox Reverb AXS 170mm Seat: Specialized Phenom Comp Mimic 143mm *pedals not included.

First Ride: 2023 Santa Cruz Nomad - Now With Mixed Wheels
They're the same shifter mechanically. The X01 comes with the two-button paddle, and the GX has the rocker paddle (which has the option to run the two-button layout for $30). It's only personal preference on which one is better, and you can run either button layout on either shifter.

Sadly, they only do that so that shops don't have to "discount" the old model. As soon as all the 27.5 Nomads have shipped, they will take those offline and only offer the MX version. The 27.5 version is dead:(
