It’s hard to launch a new mountain bike during a global pandemic. Many trail systems are closed and traveling halfway around the globe to film a release video isn’t exactly sheltering in place. Santa Cruz decided to get creative and think small when launching the latest 5010. We can’t think of a more appropriate way to launch a bike intended to help riders view landscapes as a blank canvas for creativity.
These mini mountain bikes are the creation of Taras Timchenko. He crafts each of these tiny bicycles by hand with impressive attention to detail and fully-functional suspension. Check out his Instagram account for an amazing assortment of tiny bikes.
