Tallboy 29 Carbon S Reserve Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Big wheels, light weight, and short travel conspire to create this universally acclaimed trail bike, and on this Santa Cruz Tallboy 29 Carbon S Reserve Complete Mountain Bike it makes some conscious concessions to add performance where it counts and save that hard earned cash elsewhere.
