Tallboy Carbon CC 29 XT Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The go-to choice for Santa Cruz Factory riders seeking a fast-rolling, terrain-eating bike for racing technical courses such as Downieville, the Tallboy Carbon CC 29 XT Complete Mountain Bike excels when it's pushed to the ragged edge where traditional XC bikes would normally falter. We chalk this up to its more relaxed 68-degree head tube angle paired with 110 millimeters of VPP travel striking the sweet spot between pedaling efficiency and bump-absorbing compliance on the descent. In this 29-inch wheel configuration, you'll find it absolutely steamrolls anything standing in your path by increasing the bike's angle of attack over rocks and roots, complemented with a longer 120-millimeter fork smoothing out the rough stuff. Not only is the newest Tallboy more capable across rough sections of trail and technical XC courses, but it's also interchangeable between 27. 5+ and 29-inch wheels with its flip chip integrated into the upper link. The flip chip maintains its geometry between both wheel sizes, so long as you swap in a 130-millimeter fork in 27. 5+ configuration. This is a nice addition to the newest Tallboy, as you can readily swap out the included 29-inch wheels for 27. 5+ for greater bump compliance and traction on the trail. The Tallboy employs the third generation of Santa Cruz's VPP Suspension platform, which attaches the upper link to the top tube for greater stiffness and increased stand-over height. The lower link configuration is revised as well, now tucked above the bottom bracket to prevent rock strikes and flinging debris from damaging it. The third-gen VPP platform retains the praised pedaling efficiency you've come to love from VPP, making it an ideal platform for XC racing and trail riding without pedal bob sapping speed across flats or uphill momentum. Another thing to note, Santa Cruz improved its VPP platform for better grip across root-latticed climbs and rock-strewn terrain. This is especially noticeable on long climbs where you'd normal...

Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
