The sticker that you can see on the image is now a collector. Due to a problem with a trademark, Santa Cruz had to rename its all mountain frame, the Solo. The new name is now the 5010 – and don’t worry, it keeps all from the Solo and the Solo C.
It’s not easy to understand the range of bicycles of Santa Cruz since the Blur (Blur XC, Blur LT, Blur TR..) is not used as a base for each bike. And it’s not easy at all to understand why the brand chooses a number instead of a name to integrate the bike between some Tallboy, Bronson, Bantam, Nomad… there is a reason – we find it on a press release :
So why 5010?
If it wasn’t already obvious, our product manager is a big fan of NGC 5010, a lenticular galaxy located about 140 million light years away.
So now, we know even if we still do not understand the way ^^
