Tallboy Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Few frames match Santa Cruz's Tallboy Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame when it comes to building up a versatile dream bike. You can run it as a fast rolling 29er or as a traction-savvy 27. 5+, or build it up with a 130mm fork and have a wheelset in each size and swap them out at will as conditions dictate. You'll soon be tackling your biggest rides and finding out just how capable this bike can be across a wide variety of trails. The Tallboy has always been revered as a go anywhere 29er that sported lively handling and eliminated a lot of preconceived notions about how wagon wheel bikes were supposed to handle.

What continues to blow us away with the Tallboy's ride is its ability to feel like a cross-country rocket while pedaling and transform into a near-enduro capable machine when needed on the downhills. Its ability to accommodate 27. 5+ wheels as well as 29-inch wheels lets you choose your own adventure and is enabled by the reversible "flip chip" at the shock's upper link.

The slightly smaller 27. 5+ wheels pair with the "high" setting, allowing for similar clearance between the bottom bracket and the ground.

Recommended fork length is 120mm in 29 mode and 130mm for plus but as we stated above, some of our personal rigs sport a 130mm fork full-time with no ill effects in 29er mode and seamless swapping between the sizes. The Tallboy has 4. 3in of travel through the latest version of Santa Cruz's VPP platform and its FOX Float DPS Factory shock. As with all VPP bikes, the ...

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.
