Product Description
Tallboy Carbon XT Reserve Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Over the course of four generations, the Santa Cruz Tallboy has evolved from a twitchy cross-country rig into a stable and efficient trail bike that pushes the limits of what a 120mm travel bike can do. Santa Cruz calls it the "gravity rider's XC bike," which makes sense given this bike is meant to cover ground as quickly as possible without shying away from the rowdiest of descents. It's all thanks to Tallboy's progressive geometry, bump-gobbling VPP suspension, and meticulous Santa Cruz refinement that make for one helluva short-travel steed. This particular model also benefits from the weight savings and improved handling of Santa Cruz's Reserve carbon wheels, backed by arguably the best warranty on the market. Because Santa Cruz's Bronson and Hightower got makeovers in the suspension department, it doesn't come as a huge surprise to see the tweaks to the Tallboy went in the same direction. The new Tallboy follows the trends of its deeper-travel siblings, moving the VPP suspension down to a lower-link that offers improved stabilization in the roughest terrain, while an extra 10mm of travel helps soak up additional rocks and roots that the previous Tallboy would have shied away from. 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 eliminat...

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.
