Santa Cruz Bicycles Highball Carbon CC 27.5 XT Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 description:
The Santa Cruz Highball Carbon CC 27. 5 XT Complete Mountain Bike is a purebred XC race bike with sharp handling, unrelenting stiffness, and zippy acceleration.

Delving into this Carbon CC XT build kit, you'll find the provided RockShox SID RLC 100-millimeter fork gives you the XC-specific performance desired by competitive riders seeking every available edge. Not only does this fork boast wider Boost spacing for better tracking on technical, rock-strewn courses, but it's also one of the lightest and stiffest forks in RockShox's line of XC-specific forks. It comes with RockShox's renow...
