Tallboy 29 R Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Santa Cruz's Tallboy used to be synonymous with cross-country speed demon, and while we're not here to say it doesn't still dominate in XC-disciplines, we can say with confidence that its branched out far from its original 100mm limits of days past, diving into all-mountain capabilities with 120mm of travel in both front and rear.

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.
