nice!
i would imagine that it's quite the process to change the monocoque. i doubt they would do that as a one-off. i bet we'll see these improvements trickle into production.:thumbsup:

i heart my v10...that bike rules.

Differences look subtle...

Wow thanks for scanning and posting! The changes don't look all that drastic which IMO is a good thing. Almost hard-pressed to see much difference in the pictures. The top-tube looks a bit sleeker for increased stand-over height.

Peaty's v10 was featured in the latest mb action magazine and he said:

"This thing will soak up anything that you can throw at it...the factory has some stuff in works for us to test in 07' - just think carbon little bits, maybe top links, or something like that. It's going to be full factory..."

I really do appreciate how Santa Cruz doesn't have model years for their frames. They take the if-it-ain't-broke approach. The v10 honestly is as close to perfection as it can get. Any improvements would be quite subtle so no surprise there. I hope any changes they make other than weight shaving are changes to the hardware that we can retro-fit to our bikes for a reasonable cost once its time to over-haul. This bike is a classic and classics stand the test of time.
