If you are looking for one of the most fun bikes to ride trail centres like Glentress, this could be the bike you are after. The bike is always going to put a smile on your face no matter what you ride it on.

The 5010 turns obstacles into features. Its nimble, poppy feel makes even the most mundane rides feel like they're loaded with features to hop, skip and jump over. It's the king of bike that makes new trails feel as familiar as the back of your hand. So if you are wanting to beat your fastest time down Spooky Wood this could be the Bike to do it on.

27.5 is the fun-sized wheel size. Smaller wheels provide an ideal balance between toughness and weight saving making them the most fleet-footed whether launching logs or weaving through stumps. With its quick and agile character, the 5010 has become a go-to plaything for progressive riders the world over.

It's a bike that goes harder than its vital stats may suggest. A 140mm-travel fork is paired with 130mm at the rear, the lower-Link VPP configuration of which leaves you feeling there's a lot more travel at hand. And you can choose how out of hand you want to get, as the pocket rocket fits all sizes and types of rear shocks.

It's no handful either. The relatively slack head angle makes it predictable to steer, the relatively low BB height turns like it's on tracks and the short chainstays make this plaything easy to pick and throw around.

No matter how much of a kid you are the bike grows with you. We've tailored the geometry so frame sizes matched to size specific chainstay lengths and super-low standover heights make it feel (almost) like that BMX you had as a kid.

The 5010's balance and poise can turn any rider from cautious neophyte into a fully fledged flyer. The legendary Santa Cruz fit, finish and quality construction make this pocket rocket tougher than a Tonka toy. fun and games are guaranteed, and the frame, linkages come with a lifetime warranty.

So don't be afraid, roll up your sleeves and go get creative.

The 5010 has been a staff favourite with our very own Andy riding one for a couple of years. This is an incredible bike for the Tweed Valley so get in touch or pop into our store to have a look at this Bike.

Based on Innerleithen High Street in the Tweed Valley our shop lies  in the shadows of the infamous Golfie. An Enduro World Series venue and legendary in the UK mountain bike scene as one of the most prolific and exciting mountains to ride in the UK.  The Tweed Valley and the 100+ km of trails that stretch out from our front door have proven to become a meca for gravel, MTB and road cycling  and our staff are out, rain or shine experiencing it all. We're set up to provide you the best advice and select the products to stock that are the best value, best to ride, most eco friendly and will last you the longest out on the trail.

Our business began as Dirt School in 2006, a mountain bike coaching company set up to deliver the best learning and support a mountain biker could ever want. From World championship wins to the award winning BASE college course, we've experienced and forged it all. Our evolution led to the formation of Tweed Valley Guides and now Tweed Valley Bikes too, allowing us to help you buy the right equipment, and be able to ride with you on the best trails and help you learn how to get the most out of it. Our shop has genuinely grown from the trail.
