Santa Cruz v10 size large arriving damaged…

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

Heres a pic of the Santa Cruz v10 I had for a few days, it arrived with a damaged headtube. It is a size large but the top tube was smaller than my Socom.
I returned it to leisure lakes bikes in the UKĀ and thankfully they gave me a full refund .
