    I guess me and the other handful of us that don’t ride Santa Cruz bikes will get a chance to sample the goods. Too bad it’s on the same day as Take a Kid Mountain Biking.

    Lightbulb! Some multitasking might be in order.

    Will we see you zipping around the Oaks on a Nomad... Or perhaps a Hightower LT?

    I'll be leading the demo rides this sunday for this event. Come out and take a ride with me through oaks on a bike you've never ridden before.

    Nope. I seem to remember that the current crop of SC bikes do not fit Herz well. Us shorter stubby guys can fit on anything. :p:D

    I had a 5-Ply deck with Bennett Trucks and Road Rider 4s at one time. I also owned a 2007 V-10. My two Santa Cruz products.

    The V-10 was a BEAST - drop it from three feet in the air and it just stuck to the ground like a dart. No bounce. No noise. Just "thud."

    Actually, the recent Santa Cruz do fit me now - finally. Just not interested. Too many other awesome bikes out there to just get what everybody else has.

    Luca Shaw rides a Santa Cruz. Why's that relevant? Because he's dating Jolanda Neff and I like Jolanda Neff.

    Derailing is what we do.

    Mostly because she bears a strong resemblance to Jennifer when she raced. She's the one with the curly blonde hair.

    We had a great turnout for the SC demo. I ended up leading 3 different ride groups. I was able to take a new bronson out and a new nomad out on rides that I was leading so that was super fun too. Awesome day getting people stoked on bikes. I rode with a Tustin PD officer and was able to do some coaching with her as well.

    Bikes are awesome, new bikes are new and pretty epic. Fwiw, the regional Santacruz rep is a really cool dude, and watching him interact with people and take the time to talk to them about their current bikes and what their goals are was cool. He's not the typical elitist industry guy, he genuinely wants people to be stoked to ride bikes, even if they aren't bikes that he provides (through the local shops).

    Do you recall his name? I'm probably going to the Bonelli demo on the 17th, and will look him up!

    His name is Mike. I won't give out his last name due to general privacy, but he drives a black/red santacruz sprinter with the logos plastered on the side of them.
