Tallboy 27.5+ R Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The latest Tallboy continues to gain legions of new fans and excite riders that have owned previous versions. Bigger hit riders have the Nomad. The Hightower, and its bigger brother the LT, are more enduro. That positions the Tallboy 27. 5+ R Complete Mountain Bike as the trail rider's bike--fast enough to toe an XC line and capable enough to tackle backcountry epics. The VPP platform pedals efficiently on the ups and still rips going down. Santa Cruz blessed the Tallboy with the ability to transform from 27+ to 29-inch wheels fairly effortlessly. All you need are the wheels (a given) and an air spring to adjust the fork's travel +/-10mm depending on which wheel size you are going to. Besides that, a flip chip sits in the upper link and can be rotated, allowing the shock mounting point to adjust. Re-positioning this attachment point effectively accounts for the 9mm difference in radii between 27. 5+ and 29-inch tires, keeping the geometry as static as possible across wheel sizes. This model is built with SRAM's NX shifty bits and FOX suspension. Paired with the aluminum frame, this kit offers a great value Tallboy and a super fun, super reliable bike that is ready to tackle some rad trails with you. Plus wheels bring undeniable traction and fun to trails. The Tallboy 3 takes fun, progressive geometry and lets you fit high-volume, low-pressure tires so you can float over roots and rocks and corner with authority on kitty litter. Of course, the Tallboy 29er is one of Santa Cruz's most loved models, so naturally it retains the ability to roll on wagon wheels as well. Compared to the previous Tallboy, the Tallboy 3 kicks the head tube out 2. 2 degrees, going from the old-school 70. 2 degrees to a more stable 68 degrees. Thanks to the flip-chip, that number stays the same whether you're running 29-inch wheels with a 120mm fork or--as setup here--27. 5+ with 130mm. The frame's chainstays and reach also join the modern geometry movement; the stays are shorter by 13. 3mm...
