    ANOTHER new bike? 5010 just hit SC's website.

    LOL, it seems that the Solo has been renamed 5010? 5 = S, 1 = L.

    Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 CARBON

    Wow good catch. I saw the 5010 and thought it was a mistake!

    Must be a copyright infringement.

    Whoops

    To all the "Solo" owners out there, you now own a rare bike. I wonder when we will see bikes with "5010" on their frames. I think the renamed bikes are at Interbike. I saw a post on another site mentioning 5010 at Interbike.

    Only bike company that had Bantam was Schwinn in 1955, but the trademark is marked as dead. I checked the database and SC does have some live trademarks, Bantam is not one of them.

    If they're really changing the name from Solo to 5010, that's a pretty lame choice.

    It doesn't appear that any reseller websites, such as Competitive Cyclist, have changed their sites yet, but the 5010 was named one of Bike Radar's best in show at Interbike: Best In Show - Interbike 2013 - BikeRadar

    I don't think you can copy write the word in general. But, I do think you can copy right it pertaining to something like a product or business, bikes or cups for instance.

    But I could be wrong.
