    SC changed their prices??!!

    I was all set on buying a Bronson C as soon as I sold my Heckler, but now the price has gone up $500! WTF Santa Cruz? You just pushed me out of the price range, might have to buy a Specialized now. If you advertise a price, stick with it for more than a month at least. Sorry, I'm pissed!!

    They shouldn't have teased us who couldn't drop 4k right off the bat. If they knew they wrre going to raise prices, they should've waited or just went with that price from the beginning. I really love my SC but this makes me want to spend my money elsewhere.

    I'd imagine your LBS could cut you a $500 deal.

    Also, there are no kits with "package deals", and what the hell happened to the Blur LT?

    I think Blur LT is gone. Frames are for sale on the online store. Also, in the past the SC website has been inaccurate with pricing after they perform a major update. Once people get back in the office in California they will fix it.

    Yeah, I was hoping for that so I could throw on a dropper post, new bars, and stem. Price increase takes away that option.

    Seems to me that they would allow you to choose between a Blur TR, Bronson, or Nomad...

    Someone should call up Santa Cruz and see if this is a mistake...I noticed even the Superlight 29er is up.. and the only change was from X5/X7 to ungrouped Deore equivalents.

    They would have kept a stock of frame parts to use for warranty.

    This. They have ample warranty history on that model to project what they would need for the next several years.

    I think they are just making revisions with it real time. Hopefully.

    Santa Cruz Bicycles TALLBOYLT CARBON
    XTR AM - $8542
    WHEELS: WTB Frequency Team i23 TCS rims laced to DT 240S hubs w/ DT 14/15 spokes, alloy nipples

    That should be with Enve wheels I assume. No person in their right mind would buy an $8500 XTR bike with a $75 WTB Frequency rim.

    I bet that's correct . . . Enve packages are north of $10K

    Yeah this kinda screws me too. I like the addition of the XO-1 package since it is what I planned to build anyway, but damn. That really put a damper on my party. Looks like I'll just have to wait longer and save more.

    You'd think with a $500 premium on all their bikes they'd switch manufacturing back to the U.S.

    Now that the "special" pricing is gone for base models, think I'm just going to build up a Solo frameset. At least those prices haven't changed, yet! I would be my first build, but no time like the present to learn.

    It's not hard to build a bike. I would come up with a build spec you like and give it to a couple vendors including your LBS for a quote. You can get a pretty good deal by buying all your parts in one bulk deal vs. buying them separately.

    There is a plus. The AM bikes with SPX or higher kits now have REAL sized bars! 750mm Havocs

    That's what I'm going to do. I wasn't in love with the kits they had any way. I would be saving a lot of money in upgrades down the road if I build it outright. I would just have to be patient while I build it or have it built, however it works out.

    I seriously doubt they did away with special package pricing. I would almost bet they're still updating things and package price numbers will be on there sometime soon.

    That's my guess too.

    Also noticed that the bike builder is gone.
