Tallboy Carbon CC 29 XX1 Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Santa Cruz reworked its well-loved Tallboy Carbon CC 29 XX1 Complete Mountain Bike this year, introducing significant changes to the scrappy bike that more than make up for what it lacked in raw travel with its go-anywhere attitude.

Coupled with a significantly longer reach, these changes result in a rear triangle you won't need to worry about whipping around corners cleanly and ducking through spiraling climbs. This pairs with a stable, confident front end that's prepared to charge through rock gardens and unpredictable descents alongside your enduro rig-driving cohorts. Another notable feature on the Tallboy 3 is Santa Cruz's improved flip chip technology. Making its inaugural appearance on the Hightower, the flip chip allows riders to change their frames to be compatible with either 29in wheels or 27. 5+. On the Hightower, this switch re...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
