Santa Cruz Highball Carbon. Bam.



I spent 4 years in Miami....where are the mountains? Razz....just busting your "bulls"....lots of cool places to ride. Nice choice by the way.

I get that a lot. We actually have some great, extremely technical, singletrack down here. One of the parks, Oleta River State Park, played host to the Olympic Qualifiers for (I believe) Atlanta '96. A lot of riders from Colorado and Utah winter down here to train. They've told me that since everything here is man-made / man-carved, it's overly technical. It's slower in South Florida (because of the lack of mountains), but it's extremely technical. So it's a good place to hone your skills... so I've been told.

We also have a lot of new parks popping up, one just a few miles form my house which is why I ride a lot (Virginia Key), and there's Amelia Earhart, and big, bad, Markham Park in Broward county.

Very nice!

Are you swapping parts from another bike?

Nope. All new build. I'm gonna build it up over the next 6 months.

My current ride is a Santa Cruz Chameleon with a Fox 120, American Classic MTB26's, and an e*thirteen singlespeed setup. It's my do-all, no fail, wrecking machine. I love it.

The Highball is gonna be my XC racing machine, so a totally different build / ride.

Do you ride?

In my teens I did a lot of mountain biking. I had a 2000 kona kula, which was an awesome ride. Also got into dh for a bit.

Would love to re-build my old kona lava dome frame, but need people to ride with. Now I just stick to the road.

mpls, do you have any experience with this or newer vintages of Dominus?
I have enjoyed early 90's and late 80's but hesitant to purchase any newer vintages. In your opinion, is today's style consistent with older vintages? TIA

You're in for a treat. We had this blind in a line-up of 10 red burgs a few weeks ago and it was stunning. WOTN for many, for me it was a very close runner up.

I just got the same allocation (less than a year) but don't know if the wine is worth it to buy 16 bottles. On the other hand, could i get kicked out if i buy less than half of the allocation.

Thanks. I'm looking forward to it. The notes from that evening caused me to seek one out.

I wouldn't be too concerned about being dropped. I purchase each go round, but have yet to take my full allocation.
