Santa Cruz Bantam

Santa Cruz Bicycles was founded on the desire to create suspension frames that were “simply advanced”. Nowhere is that vision more clearly defined than with the new single-pivot Bantam.

With 125mm of travel, a 68° head angle and 27.5″ wheels, the Bantam shares the same mega-agile geometry as its stablemate; the Santa Cruz Solo.

It’s an amazingly simple machine.

The kind of machine that inspires people like Henry O’Donnell to build amazingly rad trails for all of us, using other simple machines… way way out in the Sierra Mountains of California.
