Tallboy Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The line between cross-country and trail riding is easy to blur together, and with XC bikes hitting the dirt with slacker geometry, its no wonder. These capable steeds are able to take on bigger terrain than we had dreamed of a cross-country machine tackling in years past, making it trickier to pigeonhole bikes like the Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame.

This makes the new ride more confident than ever, ready for bigger trails, rutted out lines, brakes bumps galore, and even turning the odd set of rollers into doubles--but not at the cost of climbing. The new suspension is designed with the same engineering principles as the brand's longest travel bikes, making it just as at home riding cross-country as it is extreme backcountry. Santa Cruz's VPP suspension is designed t...

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.
