This frame is one of only 2 anodized gold samples ever made. SC decided it was too costly to put this colour into production therefore no more were made. One was sold legitimately and actualy featured in 'Wired' Magazine! This one had a tiny defect in the anodizing therefore was passed around internally, eventually into the hands of the boss at Santa Cruz UK. He used it for a few months, for a couple of endurance races etc, then stripped it down and sold it to me! I already had most of the components on another frame so simply swapped them across.

I'll stop at simply saying its an amazing bike to ride. It does everything you ask of it without any drama. It gives more smiles per miles than any other MTB Ive owned, FS or HT!
