    A question regarding a standard stem lenght on 2012 model (for xl frame size). Does anyone know what it is? (I opted to change the stem straight away and didn't even see the one that bike normally comes with).
    Nicely done I wanna see those pictures. The stem on my 09 medium was quite long before I replaced it, I don't remember what exactly it was though.

    I have a 2008 SL with a bent derailleur hanger. Is this the correct replacement for it?

    www DOT santacruzbicycles DOT com/catalog/superlight-juliana-nickel-p-157.html

    That is the only one that SC has on their website.

    (Grrr.. can't post a link...)

    Superlight Upgrade

    I have just upgraded my 1997 Santacruz Heckler Frame, on which I have ridden around 60,000 ks over the last 15 years to a new Superlight. The Heckler has served me incredibly well, but the Superlight is a big step up, it's stiffer and much plusher. I,ve yet to give it a really good test on some decent tracks, but my early impressions are very very good. It weighs a shade over 26 pounds (about a pound less than the old Heckler). I also run it on the road with a set of Mavic Speedcity 700c wheels, which enable me to hang with my road riding buddies.

    There was a rider that posted in this thread (I believe) who rode 24 hour races on his early Superlight.

    Is the step up to the Superlight with the R XC kit substantially better than the D XC kit?

    Could somebody let me know if I can run a 130mm travel fork?

    I found a killer deal on a RockShox Revelation.

    I have a Large '00/01 Superlight

    Thanks in advance

    Nice bike. Did you have an air shock on there before the Vanilla? How do you like the ride with a coil shock?

    Thanks man!

    Question... Do you ever worry that it will stress the headset/head tube too much?

    I'm still debating if I should just go with a 100MM SID from ebay or the revelation.

    Any comments or recommendations? I don't do big jumps or rock gardens.

    I'm a XC rider, but he tells me it's better to have more travel than less travel.

    I have an '01 Superlight with an 85-115mm Reba; frankly, the geometry and ride don't feel right at 115mm. I usually run the fork at 95mm or so, sometimes a little less if there is a lot of uphill riding. The Superlight was originally designed around an 80mm fork, but it will ride well with a 100mm fork. 130mm is too much for the older Superlight in my opinion.

    Here is my Superlight from the UK

    Started on SC in 2000 with the original frame and moved onto the latest spec a few years ago when the old frame cracked. (Used frame replacement scheme to get a good discount)

    Current build, and likely to stay like this for a while.

    Frame: 2008 (iirc) Santa Cruz Superlight Large
    Fork: Magura Durin MD100R
    Wheels: Hope hoops with Stans 355 rims
    Shock: Fox RP23
    Headset: King Nothread
    Stem: Thompson
    Crank: Shimano XTR M970 (2x10 with Blackspire rings)
    BB: Hope htii
    FD: Shimano XT dynatech
    RD: Shimano XT dynatech
    Brakes: Formula K24
    Seat: Selle carbon flite
    Seatpost: Thompson
    Pedals: Shimano PDM540 (iirc - XT pedals)
    Cassette: Shimano XT 10sp 11-36
    HandleBar: Easton carbon 31.8 mid riser
    Grips: Yeti Hardcore
    Chain: Shimano 10sp
    Tires: Maxxis Advantage with Stans tubeles

    Weight 24.2lbs

    Rides awesome, just a shame I can't do it any justice at the moment following a crash in August last year that snapped my left Achilles tendon. Getting back into it now and off on the first ride on the SC since that day. (been riding newly built HT - Ragley Piglet - for a few weeks until today)

    Finally got my first SL. Really pumped except i won't have time to hit a trail til Sunday at the earliest . Here it is after its maiden voyage home from the lbs


    Wish i had paid attention that it had presta valves before i left the lbs. I would have picked up a proper pump or adapter and a spare tube...

    Sl29

    congrats on the SC SL29r , I also picked one up in black just 2 days ago.
    Now I am obsessing over what type of pedals to get, I like using flats and Im thinking
    of going with some HT Evo's flats in green.
    anyone else running flats with their SL 29r?

    I can appreciate a good color coordination effort! That will look nice. I don't know why you call it your low budget kit. that Diety stuff isn't cheap.

    @ fparra that is going to look sick! . After riding today with my old pedals and noticing how torn up they are I went ahead a placed the order for the HT evos in green, along with some 5-10 shoes. I am really spoiling myself this fathers day!
