Tallboy Carbon R 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 v4 version is even more optimized for the trails with its slackened head tube angle, short chainstays, and a steep seat tube. As such, it's better able to cope with bigger terrain while lending more speed, control, and comfort.

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 to stabilize the suspension when you're putting power down on the pedals, meaning the rear end ceases to bob, providing a much more responsive and lively feel when you hammer up steeps, so you aren't wasting all of the power you put down. This is achieved with counter-rotating links that are carefully arranged to resist activation by pedaling forces, all but eliminating bobbing under power. But the suspension is hardly where ...

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.
