Will ship within Lower 48 US states only. 2015 Santa Cruz 5010CC Medium frame, 125mm travel, Fox Factory CTD (kashima). This is a fantastic bike, but I just upgraded frames so I will have to part with it. This is an extremely light frame. I bought the bike complete with a pike, 1x drivetrain, carbon bars, and lightweight aluminum wheels, and this thing was super light. SC advertised the frame weight at 5lbs. I haven't weighed this one yet. After the first ride I was onboard with the VPP suspension. Once the shock is dialed in a little, it's supportive and bottomless feeling, but largely without pedal induced feedback. 90% of the time I rode with the shock in the open position. I added the vinyl stickers/decals to change the color up (Nemeth Laszlo Designs did the vinyls.) There are a couple of superficial scratches and chips in the paint (one on the downtube from a kicked up rock is beneath the vinyl) as well as some shoe/pedal rub on the rear triangle, and a scratch from the chain coming off the smallest cog under load. These are highlighted in the pictures by the flash, in natural light they're much less noticeable, and they never gave me the slightest pause from riding the bike. Again the ad is for the frame only, and I will be including some of the used parts that didn't transfer to my new frame: -Thomson Covert Elite Dropper Post (internally routed) and lever, 125mm/4" -Easton Haven Stem 70mm (factory length for the Medium frame) -the fork decals that I took off of my Pike, that could probably be reused and ENVE decals that I never used. -new set of 2014 style Pike decals to match the original white/blue graphics from Slik Graphics. -set of Santa Cruz Palmdale grips that match the factory blue accent color For more information about the frame geometry (hub spacing, headset size, etc) check out the info and FAQ on Santa Cruz's website here: http://www.santacruzbicycles.com/en-US/5010-my15 and here: http://www.santacruzbicycles.com/en-US/bike/5010/1 I'm including a couple of pictures of the complete bike before and after adding the decals for reference.
