    My '07 Superlight in Crested Butte

    My right knee was ailing so I went into a bike shop and asked "what's the easiest trail in town?" It was Lower Loop/Upper Lower Loop over by Peanut Lake. It was exactly what I needed at the time. And scenic, too!

    Here is my Super Light.
    Just finished building it up using the parts of my Giant NRS wich failed on me once again.
    The VulkanBike Marathon this weekend will be the first serious ride, until now only a small trip in the local woods, "walking" the dog.

    its good to be back in the familia

    i just picked up this 04' superlight last night. looking forward to taking her on her first voyage this saturday. im gonna swap out the mallets for some candys and probably throw a maxxis larsen or kenda sb8 on the back to replace the nevegal. i used to have an 05' heckler that i sold about a year ago for a ____ _____. anyhow, its nice to be back in the santa cruz family.



    **edit. thanks matt and red_tomato! the ride on saturday was a blast, i'm looking forward to many many more miles on it!

    i threw a pair of egg beater c's on it, took off the nevegal in the back and the downhill tube that was in there, replaced with a kenda small block 8 and a regular tube. i weighed her last night and she comes in at 26.67 lbs.

    Fresh out of the wrapper.
    She came in the mail today, and everything seems ok!
    It's only the standard D XC, but it'll be plenty good for me.

    Tomorrow comes the trail christening after work!

    sweet! great choice. I am running the Kenda sb8 on the rear, (as you can see on the post/pics above yours) and I love it. very fast rolling and great grip.

    hope you enjoy your SL this weekend! have fun.

    Hi,

    I just picked this bike up used. Can someone tell me what year it is? Also, where can I find a data sheet for that particular year?

    Sorry for the crappy snapshot.

    Thanks!

    I like that bike. No logos, no bling, no nonsense, just a real nice, black, purposeful-looking bike.

    Just got back from riding my 2007 superlight in South Wales UK on the tough technical trails. My bike just rides so well It even tackled with ease the black graded routes that the Guys on thier six inch monster bikes were riding. Superlight love thats for me and the Wife rode it all on her superlight juliana as well. So we must be superlight lovers !!!

    From a hardtail directly to an '07 SL

    Great choice. Give us your impressions of FS after you've ridden this new bike on all your favorite trails, fully dialed in (it may take a few weeks). I personally have a hardtail I never ride anymore and I can't see how riding my own '07 SL has any downsides. You're still new to this FS thing, what do you think might be "better" on your hardtail? Make sure you've gotten used to how to ride FS (it is a different style and feel) before you tell us.

    Good advice xcguy, it did take me a couple of weeks to dial my 07 sl in as well. I kept comparing to my hardtail and was not really convinced I had made the right choice to switch. But once I got the front and rear suspension in tune with my weight and riding style it just clicked! No questions now, whether its climbing, bombing hills or fast singletrack its spot on.

    Thanks!

    Great looking bike. I havn't seen to many Green ones. The copper colour accents with the green is striking. You must be a big boy with so much seatpost showing and 4 stem spacers plus riser bar on an XL!
