Highball 27.5 Carbon R Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Refined for the competitive needs of cross-country and marathon racers, the Santa Cruz Highball 27. 5 Carbon R Complete Mountain Bike has no qualms about its focus on all-out speed and nimble handling when every pedal stroke is crucial to closing the gap on the race day. This particular Highball sports 27. 5-inch wheels for quicker cornering and directional changes over the 29-inch version. The Highball 27. 5 provides greater stand-over and easier maneuverability for shorter riders choosing the small-sized frame, which is absent on the 29-inch version.

For a bit more comfort, Santa Cruz engineered it with thinner stays and a 27. 2-millimeter seatpost for greater compliance when roots and rocks make their presence known, especially without a rear suspension to smooth out the rough stuff. Another notable design characteristic, the 12. 4-inch bottom bracket imparts race car-like handling when you're cleaning tight switchbacks and ripping around turns on the trail. Looking at this particular Carbon R build, you'll find it's nicely equipped for the price with its RockShox Reba RL 100-millimeter fork maintaining composure across ...

Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
