    5010 Picture Thread

    I don't see an official SOLO picture thread, just the "Has anyone got their SOLO yet" thread, so post up your SOLO photos here.

    I'll post some photos of mine after I assemble it.

    5010 Picture Thread-solo-haven.jpgSwapping the 750mm wide Havoc bars for 711mm Haven bars.
    I'm used to the EC70 XC bars, which are 685mm wide, so even the Havens will be wider than I'm used to.

    I found some of last year's (2012 model) Haven bars at a good price. They look to be identical to the 2013 bars except for the graphics.

    Were the orange nipples stock, or were the wheels custom built?

    Nice. Was this a custom build, or did you just swap the fork?

    Nice jabrabu. Where'd you get the frame only option at? I can't seem to find them anywhere but Cambria, and they are not due to arrive till 9/15.

    WilliamK - I'm looking at the Pike as well. Is this one 150?

    It wasn't a frame-only. I'm just assembling it myself. This isn't normally allowed, but I have a family bike shop connection and I get a better deal if I do the assembly myself.

    I've assembled a couple of Specialized bikes, and they require very little assembly -- pretty much just install the wheels and handlebars. But assembling Santa Cruz bikes is almost like building from scratch. The cranks and headset were installed, but that's about it. So I still have a lot of work to do. Need to trim brake hoses and bleed brakes, install cables and housings, etc. I'm going out of town in a couple of days, so it will be a couple of weeks before I finish it and ride it.

    I'm swapping the Maxxis HR2 tires for Nobby Nics, and having a really tough time getting the beads to seat, even with a compressor. I've done lots of tubeless setups before, so I'm guessing it's the Enve rims that make it tough. They came with gorilla tape and tubeless valves installed and a couple of small bottles of Stan's sealant in the box -- this is the first time I've seen a bike come set up for tubeless out of the box.

    I like the newer Shimano triggers, with multi-release, instant release, and dual-release (push and pull). I'm not crazy about the SRAM triggers, though. I plan to swap to a twist shifter later.

    I had my LBS build a frame up for me. So yeah I guess you could kind of call it that as I selected the parts I wanted to include. The Stealth, enves and XX1 are the same as what is offered by SC though.

    Yep, I specifically wanted the Pike and it had to be as close to 130mm as possible (for my liking). And I definitely didn't want 150mm, too much for me - just wouldn't suit the balance with the rear travel and the geo all round (unless you just do gravity I suppose, but then, get a Bronson and smash it). I like 150, I love the Bronson, but it is too high and too long and a wee bit heavier. Even 140mm for the Solo seemed too much on paper, but there is no other fork available in the market anyway, I had one short ride and all is good, very very good. Wow in fact.

    It's starting to look like a bike.

    I still need to install the chain, shifter cable and housing, and route and trim and bleed the brake hoses and Reverb hose. Then adjust everything to fit.

    The 2.35 Nobby Nic snakeskins look to have a lot of volume.

    I wanted the solid gray stickers on the Enves to better match the gray Santa Cruz decal on the bike, but got the gray outline stickers instead. They are nice and stealthy, though.

    I swapped the 34t XX1 chainring for a 32t that I found for $23.
    I also installed Race Face protective boots on the crank arms.

    Plenty of clearance. A big reason I decided to upgrade from my 650b TRc was so I could fit these tires. On the TRc I was limited to the 2.25 NN, which wasn't available in a snakeskin version. I think a 2.4 tire (like the Vee Trail Taker or High Roller II) would fit on the Solo no problem.

    Compared to the 29x2.3 tires on my other bikes, the 27.5x2.35 NNs look a lot fatter. The tread is only as wide as the casing, but the casing is quite wide and tall.

    According to this thread: 27.5 Tire Size Reference
    the Nobby Nic 2.35 has the largest diameter and the 3rd largest width of the 27.5 tires listed.

    Another photo of the incomplete build.
    I'm going out of town for a week, so it will probably be awhile before it's done.

    I've had my Solo since early July, but due to circumstances beyond my control (business travel, rainstorms, etc), I am just now putting some miles on it.

    Overall, absolutely love it. I think SC has a winner on their hands. Agile, fun to throw around, and highly maneuverable.

    I bought the low-end RAM build as I am an SRAM guy, so I plan on replacing the entire drivetrain eventually. The Shimano stuff is working well for a base build, though, for what it's worth.

    How did your local shop reduce the new Pike fork travel to 130mm? Was there any specific spacer or adapter needed?

    Thanks,
    Brett

    Thanks to Nate from Competitive for a great bike and great service. Stealth reverb on back order. Race face crank protectors on the way (have dinged rocks and roots on early rides, but think I'll get used to it).

    That was exactly my plan. I bought the aluminum RAM27 kit with the intent to replace the drive train and brakes. I'm a huge 1x fan, but the 11 speed versions are just way too pricey, so I decided to go 1x10.

    First, this turned up at our office reception.

    5010 Picture Thread-2013-08-19-12.27.47.jpg

    I completed the build and rode it home.

    5010 Picture Thread-dsc_5142.jpg

    And then immediately replaced cranks with RaceFace Evolve SS and the X0 type 2 derailleur. No need for a chain guard so far!

    5010 Picture Thread-dsc_5208.jpg

    Brakes are now Magura M2, that together with the ShiftMix clamps make the cockpit super clean

    5010 Picture Thread-dsc_5200.jpg

    Seems I don't have any good bike pictures from the handful of rides I've taken with it in the last couple weeks, but here is a video I shot down in Soquel: Soquel Demonstration Forest - YouTube

    And finally some battle scars

    5010 Picture Thread-2013-08-25-16.47.27.jpg

    I love this bike already. Took me a couple rides to figure out the balance, which is quite different from my old Stumpjumper 29er HT, but now I'm getting really comfortable with it. The Fox CTD shocks work great for me. Very impressed with how stiff the climb mode is.

    Super happy with this bike and the build I went for.

    It's interesting that yours came with so much already assembled out of the box -- the cranks, chain, derailleurs, cables, brakes, etc. If you look at post #3 in this thread, you can see that mine only had the cranks and headset installed. I just got back from vacation and haven't had time to finish assembling mine. Hopefully I can work on it tonight.

    The big 2.35 Nobby Nics have good clearance.

    5010 Picture Thread-solo-nobby-nic2.jpg

    5010 Picture Thread-solo-nobby-nic1.jpg

    I made some more progress on the build tonight. Installed the chain, got the brake hoses and Reverb hose routed and shortened, and partially installed the shift cable and housing.

    The bike weighs right at 25 lbs. with no pedals. This is a medium with the XX1 Enve kit, bars switched to Easton Haven carbon bars, and tires switched to Nobby Nic 2.35 snakeskin tubeless.

    Got my Solo last Friday. Took it out 3 times and each ride gets better. This is the R build. Just threw an X-fusion Hilo on it and carbon bars from my old 29er.
    Loving this bike so far and find myself at work day dreaming about riding it!

    I should get to ride it this weekend.

    I'm not sure if the stock 70mm stem will work for me (I typically use a 90mm stem), but I'll give it a try since the bars are wider than I normally use. I have an 80mm Easton EA90 stem and a 90mm Thomson in my parts bin, so I can experiment.

    I also don't know if I'll like the stock Peaty grips. I typically use ESI Chunky grips, but I'll give these a try.

    Installed my Hilo dropper post. Gonna drop my large chain ring for a 34t-sized bash guard to get a little extra clearance. Will eventually swap wheels out for Stan's ZTR Arch EX. My bike is almost at 30 lbs. Not sure how people are getting these so light.

    Is this at Moab? I'm heading there in 1.5 weeks for Outerbike. Great pictures.

    Btw, anyone know why they changed the name away from Solo to 5010? visually looks the same, just wondering what happened.

    That was discussed in this thread. Seems they didn't vet the trademark before naming the bike, and Rocky Mountain already had it. Pretty incompetent if you ask me.

    South of Moab. Hwy 211 leading into Canyonlands, and the Needles district in Canyonlands. (Mainly the Elephant Hill trail.)

    Yep, it was right at 25 lbs without pedals.

    My Solo on top of San Pablo Ridge facing SF Bay. The climb up was pretty insane, and one of those instances where I hate myself for going 1x10. But I do love this configuration.

    All the running gear off my 650b TRc including the 26r F120 fork w/ custom decals and I covered the green decals with matte black vinyl wrap (also geat for cable run areas).

    Driveway test rides feel that it isn't a TRc (the best bike SC have ever made imo.)

    Build weight is 23.25lbs.
