Tallboy 29 Carbon CC XX1 Eagle Reserve Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
With the Blur returning to Santa Cruz's stable as their flagship XC race bike, the California company turned their attention back to the Tallboy with the intent of crafting it into a short-travel weapon that can conquer more aggressive terrain with speed and confidence. So this year, the Tallboy 29 Carbon CC XX1 Eagle Reserve Mountain Bike gets a major overhaul, coming equipped a host of updates that expand the bike's capabilities further than ever before.

We suppose that with Santa Cruz's Bronson and Hightower getting makeovers in the suspension department, we shouldn't be all that surprised to see tweaks to the Tallboy went in the same direction. The new Tallboy follows the trends of its deeper-travel siblings, moving the VPP suspension down to a low...

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.
