2013 Superlight 29 R XC
So tell us more about your 2013 Superlight 29er? I am really impressed at everything that is offered on the R XC model at this price level. From the Fox CTD and SLX Shadow technologies, it sounds like Santa Cruz has really outdone themselves!
I am just hoping that I can raise the capital before the stock is depleted. More pictures and ride reports appreciated.
JUST ordered one yesterday, so I'll be able to let you know in a week or so.
Got it in black, medium (I'm 5'10"). Very, very excited to unpack it, dial it in, and hit the trail.
This has been a long time coming - I'm still on my '93 Nishiki Alien. In fact, the elevated chainstays and geometry of the SL remind me a lot of the Alien (and Mantis) of the 90s.
I picked up an large R XC and love it but i went with XT brakes and XT 2x10 off the bat so skipped the avids altogether. I am a relative noob so not that insightful...I have not ridden in about 8yrs (previously had a chameleon never rellly built a good skill set) but i love how the bike feels and quality of the components at the price.Don't regret it one bit.
