It never gets old, building up a new bike, pumped to go to the bike shop and put together this new bike. A little bit cart before the horse as I put out the West Coast Wilderness Trail film, but here’s a video of the build. Big cheers to Santa Cruz NZ, Shimano and the crew at My Ride Richmond

So I am pretty excited about this build, this is the 2019 Santa Cruz Stigmata. It’s been completely redesigned from previous years and is firmly in the camp of new generation gravel bikes. This bike has been built up with 650B wheels, Shimano ultegra drive chain and Duraace brakes and shifters.
