Sick Santa Cruz

I was visiting PTC headquarters in Needham, Mass the other day and they had this bike on display from Santa Cruz.  I guess Santa Cruz is a fairly new customer of PTC (maker of Pro/Engineer and Windchill PLM products).  This bike caught my attention immediately because it is SICK.

It’s the V10 Full Suspension Downhill.  Now usually I am not interested in downhill bikes because I consider myself a chicken when it comes to careening down a nasty hill at full speed or dropping off anything that is taller than me.  But this bike was lightweight and had more travel than most 4×4 trucks.  It’s rear travel is 254mm (10.0 inches).  The pricetag ranges from $6300 to $7200.  Anyway, I thought I would bring it to your attention in case anyone of you has a few extra bucks to jumpstart this economy.  ‘Cause someone other than me needs to get busy strapping this economy to their backs!!  Come on People.



From the Santa Cruz Website

Beneath the guiding hands of Santa Cruz Syndicate riders, the V-10 has become the definitive downhill weapon of this era. The VPP suspension has been refined to offer 254mm of seemingly bottomless travel while tracking with precision down the most demanding and technical courses that can be found anywhere in the world.
