Eurobike 2013: Another new Santa Cruz? Enter the Bantam

by Dave Anderson 6

In a year of a fair few new model releases Santa Cruz have managed to squeeze in another; the Bantam.

It’s an aluminium framed single pivot bike with geometry and handling similarities to the Bronson and Solo. So not a Superlight replacement as many have thought, more a single pivot Solo.

Naturally it’s a 27.5 wheeled bike with 130mm/125mm travel which should make it a sweet little trail bike for the UK.

You’ll notice the frame design similarities to the Heckler. Not a fan of old school Ford colour offerings? Don’t worry it’s going to be available in an alternate offering too.

We expect UK frame pricing to be similar to the Heckler  too.

  1. Bantam is to Solo as Heckler is to Bronson, I guess.

  2. Nice bike (from a SC fan with a SL & a Heckler) Crap name though…
