Nicholas Deywrote a review of Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame on August 26, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I love this frame, light enough to whip around and climb up steep grades, but it feels very stiff so it transmits power and stearing inputs with ease. Compared to my old bike the level of balance is just shocking and confidence inspiring combined with wide bars, an eagle crank set, a dropper seat post, a fox 34 fork, all setup to work with boost wheel set for an ultra cushy ride that flows down the trails with ease. After taking a break for trail riding and selling my old aluminum frame coming back to this setup makes riding so much more enjoyable. The intangible, unexplainable joy of riding trails and sharing the stoke with friends helps me understand why biking is so popular and approachable with this modern technology. For someone just getting back into the sport or an experienced rider who wants a pretty easy trail bike the 5010 is an awesome choice.
