    Santa Cruz V-10c 2014

    The Good:

    Smooth as butter, Jumps amazingly, Handles the gnarly stuff amazingly

    The Bad:

    Needs lots of down tube protection for shuttling. (If you shuttle over a tale gate.)

    Overall Review:

    Very smooth, rides through rock gardens like its a paved road. In my opinion the 10inch rear is only good for super gnarly courses, otherwise it feels sluggish. Jumps like a freeride bike. Cornering becomes very natural with the bike.
