Additional Info Weighed with Candy pedals. Santa Cruz was nice enough to crash replace an old Bullit frame and this Butcher is everything the Bullit was but better. Short, quick and agile. Built with scraps from the old Bullit and stuff bought on Ebay, Craigslist and Pinkbike buy/sell it rips with minimal financial investment and creative upgrades. The Sektor is way underrated by the way.

    Thanks, maybe around $700 since I had so many parts laying around and SC sold me the frame very cheap.

    Awesome build! Love all the custom touches. How much did it cost overall?
