Just thought I warn everyone that Santa Cruz pricing will be going up. Santa Cruz will officially raise their prices on 1st June, so anything coming out of the Santa Cruz factory from then will now be at a higher price.
Anything that is currently in New Zealand or is ordered before 1st June (and is in stock at Santa Cruz) will be at the current pricing. This unfortunately excludes the new Blur LT and V10's.
There are few changes to note;
Santa Cruz will be adding red and lime green for all models. They will also be clear coating all the frames after the decal has been applied.
Gangreen and orange will no longer be available after current stock has run out.
There will be a new ano bronze available for the V10's towards the end of the year and ano blue will be dropped from the current V10 color options.
Anodised Chameleon's have been discontinued.
Complete bikes (I think is is for NZ customers too, not just North America)
All complete bikes will start shipping pre-assembled by mid June. The assembly will be done in house by SCB. This includes all bike packages and a la carte bikes.
They will no longer be offering build kits separate like they have done in the past. All kit orders must be accompanied by a frame and fork and will ship pre-assembled.
Shocks and forks
Santa Cruz will be adding the Rock Shox Vivid and Monarch to the shock option line up. Both will start to become available in late June. Rock Shox forks will still be available for purchase with frames. Fox forks will only be available on complete, pre-assembled bikes.
