Up for sale is my modern 2017 Santa Cruz V10CC! That is the lighter version of this frame (ie more desirable and more expensive). This can be a size Large which is perfect for any individual around 5’6”-6’0” in height. I used to ride DH so much when I used to be younger and was once hoping to get back in to it. After building it up I rode the bike around my neighborhood to play with the suspension and such, but never made it to the mountain. Oh well, my loss, your gain. Retail in this build is well over $8k, save thousands!!! For full transparency, the whole thing within the build is BRAND NEW with the exception of the hubs/crank arms/saddle which came off of a very evenly used previous bike of mine, but as you’ll be able to see from the pics, those parts are like new!
The Most Successful Downhill Bike of All Time, Reinvented.
The Santa Cruz V10 is the winningest bike in downhill World Cup history. Born from racing, and more than adept at the bike park, the V10’s lower-link-driven, VPP suspension sports 216mm of VPP go back and forth—yet pedals out of corners and down long motorway sections a lot more efficiently than you’d ever expect. We drew on feedback from the Syndicate riders, and the sixth generation V10 includes a flip chip to adjust the geometry to come up with a low and slack, and a lower and slacker setting:
High: 64° headtube angle / 360mm bottom bracket height.
Low: 63.5° headtube angle / 353mm bottom bracket height.
The shock rate has been tuned to be more linear and deliver consistent damping all over the go back and forth. Carbon lay-up analysis and frame shape optimization allowed for more efficient use of material, and the savings were then reinvested into other areas to make sure the bike withstands huge, flat landings. The front triangle and swingarm sport larger-diameter sections, but we’ll refrain from the standard drone in regards to the positive effect that has on strength and stiffness. The brand new frame benefits from a moderately longer reach to suit evolving rider preferences. Alternatively, our athletes felt we all the time struck a good balance with our chainstay length, so we concerned about maintaining this dimension when accommodating the 27.5″ wheels.
