Santa Cruz Solo
This is my original Solo/5010, by Santa Cruz, from 2013. It is a full-suspsension mountain bike, running 27.5in/650b wheels, with 130mm of travel upfront and 125mm in the rear. It sits between a cross-country bike and an enduro bike. The reduced travel suits my aspirations and it’s playful geometry matches the way I want to ride. I’ve had this bike since October 2013 and it’s the best bike I’ve owned.
