Tallboy 29 Carbon CC X01 Eagle Reserve Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Santa Cruz Tallboy is perhaps one of the best examples of an all-around mountain bike, one that's a lot more capable on technical trails than you'd imagine from its 110mm travel on paper, yet one that can pedal almost as well as a dedicated cross-country bike. With the Tallboy 29 Carbon CC X01 Eagle Reserve Complete Mountain Bike, Santa Cruz gives us its premium CC frame and has it rolling on its carbon Reserve wheels while spec'ing a sensible X01 group and FOX Performance suspension to keep the price within reach.

This dual wheel persona is enabled by the reversible "flip chip" at the shock's 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 29-inch wheels. The slightly smaller 27. 5+ wheels pair with the "high" setting, allowing for similar clearance between the bottom bracket and the ground. The upshot is headache-free swaps between wheel sizes, which gives you more options than ever when you hit the trail. We'd 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.
