    Santa Cruz 5010/SOLO BC Bike Race 2016
    Hi folks.
    yep, am getting in 12 months early but am riding the 2016 BC Bike race and wondering if anyone has ridden it on a SOLO?
    Have an alloy rig with specs below but am keen to lighten/modify it a bit to suit the terrain (hills!!) etc., so after advice on anything that others have had experience with. And yep, the rider (me) will be getting a complete overhaul as well in the 12 months... ;)
    Specs:
    Large alloy frame
    SRAM XO1 1x11 drivetrain (32t up front)
    SRAM RAIL wheel set (tubeless)
    KS Lev dropper (internal)
    XTR pedals
    Renthal Fat Bar Lite (760mm)
    XT brakes (180/160 front/rear)
    ESI grips

    Cheers,

    I have ridden the Cumberland stage on a 5010, they do it separately every year as the "Coal Town Classic". I loved it, the stage there is all fire road climbing though, it may have been a bit tougher slugging it up singletrack but regardless I had a great time. I run mine with a 160mm pike too so decending was awesome. It drops to 130mm for climbing. I think the 5010 is built for bc bike race.

    thanks for the info. Yeah, i reckon i might stick with my 5010 and just lighten it a little bit, etc.
