Santa Cruz Bicycles Tallboy Carbon 27.5+ S Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 description:
The Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon 27. 5+ S complete mountain bike adds a significant degree of surefootedness to one of the world's most beloved trail bikes. Whether you're new to the sport and looking for a confidence boost or an experienced rider who appreciates the benefits of Plus rubber, this notoriously fun trail bike will gladly take you on big rides in control and comfort. The build kit is built to complement the Tallboy's ride qualities, pairing FOX and RockShox at the suspension and seatpost with a full SRAM drivetrain.

The upshot is headache-free swaps between wheel sizes, which gives you more options than ever when you hit the trail. Regardless of wheel size, the Tallboy generates 4. 3 inches of travel through the latest version of Santa Cruz's VPP technology. As with all VPP bikes, the Tallboy's counter-rotating links are carefully arranged to resist activation by pedaling forces, a...
