Tallboy Mountain Bike Frame by Santa Cruz Bicycles
If you're going to build the trail bike of your dreams, starting with the Santa Cruz Tallboy Mountain Bike Frame as your foundation gets you off to the best start possible. Whether you're building it up as a fast cross-country rig, or your all-mountain ride, this frame is destined to succeed as an insanely versatile machine that continues to refine the modern trail bike, and in its newest iteration, the Tallboy pushes well beyond its predecessors, amping up its high-speed capability, while preserving its lively feel on the climbs.

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.

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.
