Tallboy Carbon CC 29 X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Santa Cruz Bicycles' Tallboy began life as a spry 29er that could hit above its travel weight but was considered by most to be a burly XC bike. Oh how times have changed. The latest Tallboy Carbon CC 29 X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike makes the case that wagon wheels and 4. 3in suspension platforms may be the ideal set-up for riders who like to get rowdy but prefer to traverse the backcountry rather than riding a lift up a mountain. The drivetrain is equally happy to climb, with SRAM's X01 Eagle cassette offering the ultimate granny gear for when the gradient exceeds your ambitions. The Tallboy has changed a bit over the years, making it one of Santa Cruz's most commonly tweaked designs. Despite the changes, it's also remained one of the brand's most perennially loved models. Considering its revered status among 29er enthusiasts, a new Tallboy is a big deal, but before we get into the changes it's worth dwelling briefly on the flip chip--even if it may be somewhat old news by now. The flip chip sits in the upper link and can be rotated to allow the shock mount to migrate. Being able to reposition the shock attachment point effectively accounts for the 9mm difference in radii between 27. 5+ and 29in tires, keeping the geometry as static as possible across wheel sizes. SC first introduced this feature on the Hightower, but the brand seems to have perfected it for the Tallboy 3; changing the Hightower results in a slight change in head tube angle, but the Tallboy's head tube angle remains the same for 27. 5+ and 29in wheels. Compared to the previous Tallboy, the Tallboy 3 takes just a bit off the top of the head tube, dropping 2. 2 degrees to fall from the standard 70. 2 to a moderately slack 68 degrees. Courtesy of the Flip Chip's slight geometry alteration, that number stays the same whether you're running 29in wheels with a 120mm fork--as it's set up here--or 27. 5+ with 130mm. The frame's chainstays and reach also joined the modern geometry movement during the b..
