    Santa Cruz Virtual Parking Lot Sale

    Santa Cruz Bicycles

    I'm a huge SCB fanboy, and thought I'd share this from their blog. Some really good deals, probably not as good as parking lot sales of the past, but still this is open to everyone in the states. Wish I was in the market for a LTc ($1450/1500) or they had a NomadC with an air shock (RC4 $1590). Other notables: TRc for $1500, Butcher $675, Heckler $550. Get 'em while they last!

    I've been lusting after a TRc for a while but just couldn't pony up full $$ for one. Scooped one at the VPLS for $1500 and stacked on a Chameleon frame for another $350. Amazing deals with full warranty and Kashima shocks!

    Definitely not. All of the models are sort of last year's so they're clearing them out for various reasons:

    * Butcher, Nickel - discontinued
    * Nomad, TRc, LTc, XCc - QR rear (now 142 rear)
    * Others likely have older decals or colors.

    Thanks for the heads up. Smoking deal on the Blur LTc and TRc. I picked up a TRc for a 650B conversion!

    ^ What size and which one?

    I've picked up a Heckler with a Float CTD Evolution shock in L black.

    This will be a replacement frame for the aging Kona Stinky that sees All-Mountain duties and has been overbuilt like a tank since day one.

    The tallboy is tempting, and XL would fit me. Does it use a standard threaded bottom bracket? Is the head tube tapered?

    Tallboy on the way for me too. First Santa Cruz and first 29er. Funny, I think I ordered before you but black and white colors were showing out of stock so I went with the blue.

    I was one day away from ordering a Superlight 29er. I have been on a Niner EMD for the last year, but have really wanted a Santa Cruz for about the last 15+ years. Ever since the original Heckler!

    We are out of stock on your order in Black, I am sorry. Even though you received a confirmation, there is no stock of black left..

    Ha ha I was just about to post this, because I had a related thread in the santa cruz forum on this topic.

    I am trying to order a Nickel medium size before they sell out totally,
    but my bank is having an issue with my card.
    I have money but no card and the website only accepts cards.
    Any ideas?

    Yup, last night.

    Email received about an hour ago.

    And I called asap in the morning around 10 am local time in Cali to confirm my order, that it went through, and that I wouldn't get stiffed without a frame cause I knew that was going to happen. The lady said to direct any VPLS questions to the email on the VPLS page and yet she's the one that wrote to me about it being out of stock.

    I have a feeling I won't be the only one without a frame, they need to update their inventory in real time.

    I was offered a raw Heckler (but I hate that finish) and was told to call immediately to confirm. I keep trying SC but no one is picking up. I'm trying to get anything but raw lol.

    I had a black color Tallboy in my shopping car, after I finished the registration and was about to check out it showed out of stock and wouldn't let me order it. So I ended up with the blue, which will be fine with me.

    No shipping confirmation yet. My order is still showing pending. I am kind of expecting to receive a notice that my frame is out of stock.

    Did you upgrade shipping to something faster like two or three day? I wonder if they processed those orders first.

    I ordered an XL tallboy in white on Tues AM. I checked and my order said "pending". I spoke with Santa Cruz yesterday and they said they are going through all the orders as their system was unable to update in real time. I was told that they are now in the process of going through all of the requests/ orders in order received.

    I then got a call back yesterday evening and was informed that they were out of the white TBs and was offered the blue.

    I can't complain, I am getting a TB for $995 shipped, but it seems a bit of a cluster. They are doing what they can to get people the frames they ordered, but it sounds as though once supplies are gone some will be out of luck.

    ^Thanks for the update. I ordered an XL Tallboy in blue too. It was on Tuesday morning and the only two color options left for me were blue and brown.

    No, regular ground shipping. I live in Califorina so I would have got it with in two days anyway.

    Oh and I got them yesterday. Still haven't opened the boxes yet.

    I'm a little surprised they offered the Tallboys in this deal. Most of the frames offered are ones that have been discontinued (like Nickel and Butcher) or are being updated (like TRc). The TBa is pretty new, and there aren't any updates coming that I know of, unless they are planning to switch to a 142x12 rear on that model.

    VPLS part 2 is still running. Just picked up a BXC carbon frame for 1500. Not too shabby! Already have shipping confirmation to boot!

    And it is still going on. I keep checking to see if they put up a Nomadc again. Just noticed two new offerings when I checked today.

    Alum Nomad for $1000.

    And for you downhillers, V10s for $1870. If I was a DHer, I would probably snag one of those.

    Is the highball the carbon version?

    I think it is from the colors. I just want to be sure.

    Santa Cruz Bicycles indicates the word "carbon" and the frame shows a uniform tube juncture everywhere.

    The Highball is one of the stiffest, most uncomfortable carbon frames on the market in terms of comfort. Ouch.
