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, fast 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.
