Tallboy Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame - 2017 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Before you turn away from Santa Cruz's 29er Tallboy, assuming that it's better suited to smooth hardpack and timed XC courses, make sure you've got your facts right. Far from a purebred XC greyhound, the Tallboy Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame is a third-generation mutt of the best variety. Take it on the kind of chunky, unpredictable terrain your old XC frame would've shied away from to see the best of its mixed trail, enduro, and XC parentage on display. Unlike previous generations, this year's Tallboy comes with a slacker front end and Boost spacing, giving it enduro eagerness on descents without slowing it down when you duck into a stretch of overgrown, root-latticed switchbacks far away from machine-graded flow. 4. 5 inches of travel conspire to keep you trying just about everything with a shrug and a prayer. Depending on the day, choose between the pillowy float of 27. 5+ hoops or a 29er's unapologetic affinity for straight lines. Santa Cruz's Flip Chip takes care of geometry swaps, making either a 27. 5+ or 29er setup possible without any change to the Tallboy's angles. When it's time to grind it out on nauseating climbs, ride assured that the Tallboy's top-of-the-line Carbon CC frame arrives whittled down and devoid of an ounce of excess material. Santa Cruz molds it in the lightest carbon layup possible, eliminating stress points while maintaining an impeccable strength-to-weight ratio. Keep in mind that the Tallboy 3's 27. 5+ mode best accommodates 2. 8in tires, and will likely have clearance issues with some 3in models. As a 29er, trust the 2. 35in range to blend cush and traction without feeling sluggish.

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.
