Steve Peat's 2012 Santa Cruz V-10 Carbon - First look

Cutting-edge rig decked out with equipment from new sponsors

Taking pride of place at this week's iceBike* show was downhill legend Steve Peat's 2012 race rig – a Santa Cruz V-10 Carbon newly decked out with Shimano and Fox Racing Shox bits.

We've already covered the now full-carbon V-10 in a fair bit of detail here and here, and Santa Cruz released some images of the new team bikes when they announced the move from SRAM to Shimano last month. But it's such a nice looking bike we thought you wouldn't mind a second look! Check out our image gallery for more shots.
