Gareth Brewin’s Santa Cruz V10cc

Gareth has been supported for the last two years by the ‘Trailhead’ Bike shop, which is run by Sandy Plenty,  and support  has also come from the good guys and CNC Machining specialists, Hope Technology.

He has chosen to rock the proven V10cc Chassis linked up with legendary Suspension specialists, Ohlins. Sporting a TTX rear Coil shock and an Ohlins Damper assembly working its magic inside a RS Boxxer fork. A Renthal cockpit keeps him in control along with a host of top drawer components.

More details of this cool build can be found below.

A few words from Gareth:

“I honestly can’t find fault in it. Hopefully can do the same next year and get back to racing properly. Set up wise, there’s nothing to quirky, 800mm bars, levers fairly neutral and hard springs in forks and shock.”
