Tallboy Carbon 29 R Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
It has been a few years since the Tallboy debuted. Stealing the hearts of many, this 29er was able to handle so many different kinds of terrain, it truly showed us versatility possible for a mid-travel bike with wagon wheels. Over time it did see some changes to geometry, with riders fine-tuning it to host a slackened head tube angle, shorter chainstays, a steeper seat tube, and a little more travel for handling bigger terrain with more control and comfort. The Tallboy Carbon 29 R Complete mountain bike is ready to prove to you that it's still got what it takes to bounce from trail to trail, whether just banging out maximum miles on a cross-country epic or exploring beyond the groomed and maintained trail networks into what lies beyond the beyond. A significant reason that the Tallboy has carried so much steam over the years is because of its ability to transform from a lightning-fast cross-country bike to a confidence-inspiring trail bike. For this reason, with hub standards already widening with the acceptance of Boost spacing, designers at Santa Cruz altered the geometry slightly to allow for 27. 5+ clearance. This multi-use capability is enabled by the reversible "flip chip" at the upper link. Setting the flip chip to the "low" mode relaxes the head angle by roughly half a degree and lowers the bottom bracket, which makes for an ideal setup when paired with the slightly larger diameter of 29in wheels. Because a 27. 5+ wheel sits just slightly smaller in diameter than 29ers, plus wheels pair with the "high" setting, allowing for similar clearance between the bottom bracket and the ground. The flip-chip technology allows you to alter the geometry on the fly, should you choose to snag a second wheelset to bounce this 29er to 27. 5+ from time to time. Santa Cruz gives the Tallboy 4. 3in of its latest version of VPP suspension to absorb the rocks and roots you encounter. As with all VPP bikes, the Tallboy's counter-rotating links are carefully arranged to resis...
