- Santa Cruz ebike
Rumour is that they are about to release one.
Will be interesting to see their take on it. Assume it will be a bronson, 29 upfront with a smaller light battery. Price could be interesting thoughPosted 2 months agosillyoldmanSubscriber

A proper dentist bike then, ideal for the guy with too much money and too little time. They’ll be selling them as an added extra at Audi’s and BMWs dealers pretty soon ;0)Posted 2 months agoNobeerinthefridgeMember

I have no time, no money, drive a 2008 Honda civic and certainly ain’t a dentist, but have a lovely carbon Bronson. Sorry I don’t fit with your inverse snobbery.
They’ll set shit loads of these, cos they’ll be very good, as their bikes usually are.Posted 2 months agoOscillate WildlyMember
boooooooo didn’t think i’d see SC release a ebike – guess that’s the way shitty lazy mtb worlds goingPosted 2 months agota11pau1Subscriber
Base model will probably start at £8000.
How much for the CC build, Sram AXS, reserve wheels etc? £12000? 😀Posted 2 months ago
Stif/Jungle have posted some pretty sneaky beaky countdown stuff on their instagram this week… Could be an embargo’d release date coming up?
I’m sure STW towers have an an article pre=prepped and ready to launch about whatever is in that box posted above. Which of course came from Stif/Jumgle…
ETA nothing obvious stirring from Santa Cruz themselves though…Posted 2 months ago

Companies like making money… that’s about all there is to it these days (see also Porsche/Ferrari/Lamborghini/etc all making SUVs)Posted 2 months ago
On the plus side, there will be loads of regular ones going cheap on the S/H market, as all the ‘keep it real’ heroes punt them on, not wanting to be associated with ebikes…Posted 2 months agochakapingSubscriber
If we were playing ebike bingo I reckon we’d have a full house of responses already. Where’s mike when you need him though, eh?

Nah, I’ve just put a deposit on the new Deviate Highlander. Similar spec to that though 😉 plus, SC don’t really excite me anymore.
Just replaced the motor and battery on the Levo too, so another 2 years to come out of that yet.Posted 2 months agotimbog160Subscriber

That’s not a recent development.Posted 2 months ago

Curious to see how that massive motor works with the current low shock suspension layout. When they introduced it across the range I thought that was a statement of intent that there would be no Santa cruzeePosted 2 months agoPacemanSubscriber
Just a rumour I reckon, can’t see it happening any time soon.Posted 2 months ago

Suspect they’ll keep what they are currently using for the 5010, mounted to the top tube.Posted 2 months ago

It’s a growing segment that’s very closely aligned to their current market position. I’d be amazed if they don’t get on the bandwagonPosted 2 months ago

lolz first person I thought of too!Posted 2 months ago
There was a statement when they got bought up by an investor that there would be no ebike, so I’m hoping for a low pivot thing 5010.Posted 2 months ago
There’s a kid on mtbr who claims to have been passed by an SC ebike last week on a trail in Santa Cruz and another saying it’s coming this ThursdayPosted 2 months agojam boSubscriber

maybe the investor has seen the sales figures for ebikes and re-evaluated that decision…Posted 2 months ago
Who’s going to be dropping the sick E-edit? I reckon Danny Mac rather than the Syndicate, given the wider reach around.Posted 2 months ago
everyone loves a good reach aroundPosted 2 months ago

That matches the ‘countdown’ timers currently on soshul meeja…Posted 2 months agojmatlockMember
Where are we all seeing these pics and countdown timers? What accounts?Posted 2 months ago
Stif/jungle, on an IG story a couple of days ago, nothing there nowPosted 2 months ago
Keeping my unpowered fingers crossed that its either an updated 5010, or a factory mullet.Posted 2 months agoroverpigSubscriber
I’m sure they’ve done their market research, but I have to wonder if they are a bit late to this party. I know the eMTB crowd think they are going to be an ever-expanding part of the scene, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet a bunch of development money on that. Guess that’s why I’m not a bike designer 🙂Posted 2 months ago

I dunno, that’s been up 1/2 an hour now, given how keen a lot of these press embargoes can be, I’m skeptical on how genuine that is…
Could be wrong though.Posted 2 months ago
Know what ya saying. If it gets pulled then it’s genuine I supposePosted 2 months agojimdubleyouSubscriber
That seat post looks about 7 miles high from that angle.Posted 2 months agoendoverendSubscriber
That’ll be about 13k for a nice one then…..would look great on a dark grey Audi.Posted 2 months ago
got chatting to my dentist the other day about bikes, was saying he was on the hunt for a new one, but doesnt have the bandwith to ride the local hills..Posted 2 months ago
In other Santa Cruz news they have bought both Stif and Jungle and have opened a new shop in Bristol. That’s the reason Stif no longer stock Orange or so a chap in the shop told me. Might be old news, meh.Posted 2 months ago
Might be old news, meh.
Yep, jungle already owned stif though. I heard there was another reason they don’t stock orange anymore, mind.Posted 2 months ago
Yeah, Jungle was Stif but apparently Santa Cruz bought the lot off the original owner. That’s according to a lad in the shop so happy to be corrected.
Intrigued by the Orange quip as I noticed Blazing Saddles and a few other long time stockists have dropped the brand or been dropped.Posted 2 months agodogboneSubscriber
nd have opened a new shop in Bristol.
Don’t think so. BW are local dealer still.Posted 2 months ago
