Tallboy 29 Carbon R Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
There's a really good reason why Santa Cruz's Tallboy enjoys such universal praise. Simply put, it's a 29er that's very at home on such a variety of terrain, and it shows us just how fun a small travel bike can be with big wheels. This v3 version is even more optimized for the trails with its slackened head tube angle, short chainstays, and a steep seat tube. As such, its better able to cope with bigger terrain while lending more speed, control, and comfort. The Tallboy Carbon 29 R Complete mountain bike is ready to be your go-to ride, racking up the miles on your well-traveled trails as well as exploring new singletrack and tackling new lines for the first time.

Because a 27. 5+ wheel sits just slightly smaller in diameter than a 29er, plus wheels pair with the "high" setting, allowing for similar clearance between the bottom bracket and the ground. The flip-chip technology allows you to alter the geometry easily, should you choose to snag a second wheelset to bounce this 29er to 27. 5+ from time to time. Santa Cruz governs the Tallboy's 4. 3in of travel with its latest version VPP suspension to soak up the rocks and roots you encounter. As with all VPP bikes, the Tallboy's counter-rotating links are carefully arranged to resist activation by pedaling forces therefore mitigating the ever-dreaded pedal bob. This being the latest integration of VPP, Santa Cruz's engineers altered the desig...

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.
