First Look: Cervélo's New ZFS-5 XC Bike
@big-red: My take is new mold. Molds are expensive (though it's all relative), but not compared to a team of engineers for 1-2 years.They probably skipped 60+% of the engineering hours by using a current or previous Blur CAD model, tweaked it a bit, then went straight to cutting the molds. When you don't have to design from scratch, a model like this can be done pretty cheap. I also think that this isn't targeted at us mountain bike crowd, it's recognized most of us will just buy the Blur (unless you're a masochist who hates your mechanic, and yes you definitely aren't doing the wrenching yourself, and wants headset cable routing). The target is Gary who's been riding a Cervelo since the 90's and has heard how much fun his riding buddies are having on this legendary "singletrack" all without the risk of getting hit by a bro texting on his phone with his car. He walks into his road loving bike shop and says tell me about these here mountain bikes I keep hearing about, and boom $10k Cervelo out the door. He's probably never heard of Santa Cruz the bike brand.

I didn't realize how close this is to the Blur until viewing them side by side. Wow, ya I'm guessing at a minimum CAD files were shared for this. That doesn't leave much room for development to significantly differentiate the two bikes, other than the logo pained on it.

XL Santa Cruz Megatower CC Frame (Push 11.6 Shock)

$1500 USD
2019 XL Santa Cruz (V1) Megatower CC Frame for sale - no shock for $1500. $2,000 with the Push 11.6 Coil Shock, and I'll throw in a free OneUp Dropper post if you want it (pictured). All frame hardware has been upgraded to titanium (all shock bolts/pivot bolts/fasteners), which saves some weight and is more rust resistant. Original hardware included as well (good for spares). Push shock last serviced 100 miles ago, and includes a 500lb spring (I'm 180lbs). Frame has been well maintained and all pivot bearings are regularly greased and running smooth. I'm the original owner (bought mid 2020), frame is in excellent shape as it's one of 3 bikes I ride, and has had paint protection film on from new (now peeled off), a few paint scratches here and there from normal use, but overall in great shape and never crashed. Includes all original hardware: spare rear derailleur hanger, hangers and brake mount for both chainstay positions (currently Long/Low), headset, seat collar, rear axle, frame protection. Will ship at buyer's expense, I do have it packed in a bike box right now, professionally packed.

Wolf Tooth Introduces ReMote Pro Dropper Lever
Nice try Wolf Tooth, jokes on you though, my original ReMote is so good that it will last me the rest of my life at this rate. Tho for real, not much to complain about here considering the "old" lever gets a nice price drop too!
