Madeleine Hutchisonwrote a review of Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 Carbon 27.5+ S Mountain Bike on October 29, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I am fairly new the world of mountain biking on a full-suspension, and this bike is quite the treat. I ride single-track w/ some small drops and jumps and I felt so secure on this bike!
The option to lock out the rear suspension makes climbing so much easier. The addition of the drop-seat option is awesome for the descent and now I wonder how I did without it before!
It's also a plus that the bike looks great. Look good feel good, I guess! Anyone who is on the fence, I'd say give this a go!
