Santa Cruz Solo- anyone own/ridden one?
Me! I rode one at the launch in Ballater (as seen in the current issue) and we do have one of those launch bikes on test at the moment. It’s currently being photoshot. (And yes, there’s a hairline crack in the finish so we’re waiting for a replacement back end from Jungle. To be fair, there’s a five year warranty on all of SC’s frames). Ours was one of the first frames that Santa Cruz got (and which they raced at Glentress 7). Looking forward to getting back out on it.Posted 4 years ago
Where did you ride them?
Stif Demo Day at Stainburn, nice little loop and some nice bikes to try, my first ride since breaking my rib so seemed a good way to do a few short loops and make sure all is well be venturing further afield and currently short listing some bikes.Posted 4 years ago
Luke – the Heckler came second for me it felt a little more nimble than the Bronson. I wasn’t going to try the Heckler but tried while waiting for the Solo and it’s was great, glad I’d did. The Heckler felt fun and did make me smile 🙂
I like the Bronson but it felt a little to big for the tight track if I only rode the Alps which I don’t it would be excellent, the way it accelerates and climbs is stunning just felt a little to much for 95% of my riding, where as the Solo felt it would work for 95% of my riding and I can mince on the 5% if and when it happens 🙂
Tettosugars – it’s was well run and I got to demo the bikes I wanted round a nice short loop, was surprised no merchandise and it was entirely no pressure just about the bikes, also liked that time was taken to set the suspension up for every rider, which I know is good thing but nice detail to sort when dealing with a fair few people.
