    I know of two new SC's coming out, and I wouldn't consider either one "completely different."
    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.

    If the ad said "Something unexpected!" I'd be with you on the 26er. I'd be surprised if bike companies bother making 26ers, 650B and 29er. Something has to give and it's probably going to be the 26er.
    Safe riding,

    New Santa Cruz Bike?

    I really wanted a 650b enduro bike but they just weren't ready in time so I got the Tallboy LTc. I don't regret my decision as the LTc is an awesome bike. Still I would love to try out a 160mm travel 650b Santa Cruz.

    Iheartbikes is refering to the new 36er wheel size. Perfect for pump tracks!

    650b size is more likely, or a 180 nomad.

    Consensus seems to be 50/50 on that. Blur XC geo/weight made for 650 wheels would bring teh sexy.

    Aluminum V10?

    Although completely different from SC could be 650b or even a fatbike.

    The market has been screaming for a real 650b bike from Santa Cruz. So many folks are modifying their Blur TRc's and XCc's with 650b wheels and loving the result. Look at the advertisement again. Doesn't look like DH or AM terrain to me.

    SC has reached its limits with 29ers, and the 26er line up covers the gamut from racing to DH. This is a 650b bike for sure, perhaps with two distinct offerings - one with the lightweight F140 to satisfy the TRc modifying crowd, and a burlier bike based on the heavier F160 to compete with the existing 650b bikes such as the Carbine.

    Either way, SC doesn't churn out any turds. Expect these babies to just kill...

    It'll be a bike with a new suspension design known as APP. The frame will be available in either 150 or 160mm travel.

    My guess is a 650 as well. IMHO they have all but perfected the 29er so no need to go that route, their 26 line up is spot on in almost all riding situations that are present so it has to be a 650.

    You could have that now, other than the stealth dropper routing, CS length isn'7 a prob.....

    You just need to "short shock" the TBLT....like we did to the Blur LT to get a 4X/TR type bike a few years ago...

    C'mon someone do it for me...
