If you’ve ever wanted to take a tour of the Santa Cruz bicycles headquarters in Santa Cruz but couldn’t get out to California, here’s your chance. Thanks to the wizards behind the curtain at Google, you can now take a full Google Street View tour of their factory. Check out all the new bikes, browse the merch shop, and see where your Santa Cruz bicycle is built up, packed, and shipped to your door. It’s like a bicycle themed scavenger hunt!
You can even take a look inside the Syndicate’s headquarters including both current and bikes from the past. This little guy hiding behind these shelves might mean a new bike from Santa Cruz in the near future. When Santa Cruz last had a cyclocross bike, the Stigmata was still running rim brakes. This colorful bike is clearly running disc brakes with a front thru axle. Prototype? Future production model? Time will tell.
