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 - 2018 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.

Compared to the previous Tallboy, the new Tallboy 3 kicks the head tube back 2. 2 degrees 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 29in wheels with a 120mm fork or 27. 5+ with 130mm as the setup is here. The frame's chainstays and reach also joined the modern geometry movement an...
