2008 Santa Cruz Syndicate V10
Story of the bike
This is a Santa Cruz Syndicate V10 race bike, used by Nathan Rennie during 2008.
After the World Cup season, the bike was stored at the European Syndicate HQ in Morzine and another Luxembourger bought it directly from the mechanic.
He rode it for many years and eventually changed (upgraded) a few parts, while selling the original ones.
After I received the bike, Syndicate team manager Kathy Sessler put me in contact with Doug Hatfield who was a massive help in getting me all the parts needed, even some custom Rennie shift paddle and Blackbox cranks.
The Blackbox forks that the team used at the end of the season are probably all gone and were taken apart to inspect.
I'm still missing a few correct parts, like pedals and front rotor, brake levers have to get replaced as well.
