Responded on

There are several reasons why a bike build on one website or store may differ from that on another website. 1) Santa Cruz like all bike manufacturers orders a fixed amount of parts and components from their suppliers before production of a bike and throughout the course of the year. When those parts and components are no longer available, they build the bike with another/similar part. If you go on any of the large bike company websites you will see a disclaimer, "We reserve the right to make changes to the product information contained on this site at any time without notice, including with respect to equipment, specifications, models, colors, and materials." 2) Some bike builders buy frames from the manufacturers and give customers a menu of compatible parts to construct their bike from.
Reason #1 more than likely applies to your question about different bike builds on different websites.
