Old Town Bicycle is proud to offer Santa Cruz Bicycles. These are some of the best bikes on the trails today!
Santa Cruz Bicycles was founded in 1993 in a space the size of a single car garage in the Seabright Cannery, in Santa Cruz California. Their first bike, the Tazmon, was a single pivot dual suspension bike that rattled established sensibilities and helped define their then- ethos of "simply advanced." That bike was the cornerstone for a brand that was founded on the notion of doing things their own way in order to build the best. They have been rattling sensibilities ever since.
They now manufacture 20 models of mountain bikes and a full women's Juliana range, made from either carbon fiber or aluminum, from hardtails to 10" travel downhill machines. They offer suspension designs ranging from the simple efficiency of their single pivot designs to the cutting edge performance found in our unique VPP system. These are available with a wide range of component and suspension options to choose from. Each and every one of their bikes is the distillation of a desire to ride and build the highest performance mountain bikes in the world. No more, no less.
"We could get all touchy feely here and talk about how we are committed and impassioned riders, and how we love bikes so much that it somehow elevates us into something unique, but that's kind of common fodder for these "about" tabs on bike company websites. EVERYONE working in this industry should be committed and impassioned. It takes that kind of commitment to try and build the perfect bike. Still, we think we chase that vision harder, smarter and sometimes a bit weirder than the others."
