Santa Cruz V10 – “The Ring”

As part of a marriage proposal, a local customer wanted to do something really special for his soon to be bride. Being that his special lady wasn’t that into jewelry, and loved DH Bikes, he approached us at The Garage about building a fully custom Santa Cruz V10 for her. Nearly every part of this bike is custom, down to the paint by Elbert Uber Lack (note: there are no decals on the frame – ITS ALL PAINT), the pedals and bar end caps by Twenty6 are custom engraved with the phrase: “Forever Loved”. To add an element of surprise, this bike was secretly exchanged with her normal bike when they loaded the chairlift at Whistler and at the top he presented her with the bike and a ring. Congrats Marshal & Joy!

In addition to Bike of the Day, The Ring was selected as one of the “Top 5 Bike Check of 2013” on VitalMTB.

From the article:

“The Ring

What do you do when the lady of your heart rides park and isn’t into jewelry? You propose with a custom-built, custom-painted Santa Cruz V10 of course! And you don’t stop at the one-off paintjob (no decals here!) or the custom engraved ODI end caps and Twenty6 pedals, no, you have the bike secretly loaded on the chairlift in Whistler and you present it to your loved one at the top of the mountain. This once-in-a-lifetime build was our Bike of the Day on October 8. (And yes, she said yes!)”
