- New Santa Cruz CX bike!
I don’t know if this has been announced or if anyone knows about it, but while out walking the dog today I came across 4 guys with a drone filming 2 riders on what looked to be new Santa Cruz CX bikes. I can’t say anything about it for certain, but they looked like out and out carbon race bikes with clearance for no more than 35c ish tires. The 2 bikes were blue and orange. If this is old news then ignore me, but I couldn’t find anything about it on google.Posted 5 years agoMSPMember
I would have thought santa cruz would launch a cross bike as more of a “dusty gravel road” racer in the US first, unless they were sitting the downhill boys on it for the promo.
However, being a bit of a santa cruz fanboy, if they are doing a cross bike, HURRY UP AND TAKE MY MONEY DAM YOU!Posted 5 years agodirtyriderMember
you can see it on the google maps factory tour, in the warehouse somewherePosted 5 years ago

They’re going to want a lot of it I suspect!
At least with SC build kits they spec decent stuff you’d probably have if you did it yourself and doesn’t seem to be based on what they can get cheap OEM.
Still a nice looking CX bike for the MTB crowd.Posted 4 years ago
£1999 for frame and fork is a lot.
Basically you can get any CX frame and fork on the planet for that, so you’d have to really like this one a lot.
I think it looks nice (I like the Orange, but maybe not the yellow with it), but I’ve got more important things to spend 2k on.Posted 4 years agojobroMember
Turner have made a cross bike – perhaps it is the new thing over there?
Any links to that TurnerGuy? Can’t find anything.
Dave Turner is a self confessed ‘cross nut so I suspect if Turner do a X bike it will be X race orientated rather than the longer slacker gravel bikes.
As a newish Turner fan boy (I love my Czar) I’d be interested in one. Hopefully it wont be quite as fugly as the santa Cruz.Posted 4 years agobikebouySubscriber
I’d like to see a side on shot before I make my mind up.
Can’t see it selling well here, mebbies in the US but not here and not in Europe either. As for target audience, would an MTB’er really buy a CX’er form a Brand he has already? Or are they more choosy in that they seek out the best for the money they’d want to spend??
Do folks really just walk into Stif and go “like the colour, it fits me, I’ll take it, charge my card” ? or are SC seekers more discerning?
But hey, CX’er is a growing market, great bikes to Hack on when you fancy a change or if you are into it they kind of take you back to the days of Old Skool XC with the simplicity.. IMO’bvs.
Can see the Orange working, looks kinda good but what does it really look like in daylight.. ?Posted 4 years agobenjiMember

As one of the folks, yes I did that with a Niner RLT, very happy with it. Once I’ve had a save up, I will probably do it again, but it’s going to be a tougher this time Niner BSB or a Santa Cruz Stigmata, what a terrible decision to have to make.Posted 4 years ago
Nice bikes, and I’d be happy with either (BSB or Stigmata), but two grand for frameset when you consider what else is out there. I guess it’s the boutique brand thing, but even then you can get, for example, a Storck TIX frameset and save yourself 500 quid. You’d have to really want a Niner or a Santa Cruz.Posted 4 years ago
