Santa Cruz Bicycles Tallboy Carbon CC 29 X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 description:
When it first arrived on the scene, many touted the original Tallboy as the perfect 29er, and two generations later, it continues to define what the wagon wheel platform can do. The 2017 Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon CC 29 X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike brings a series of updates and draws inspiration from enduro and trail bikes with its stiff Boost rear spacing, re-designed linkages, and Santa Cruz's flip chip that adjusts the frame dimension for consistent geometry whether you're rocking 29in wheels or going plush with 27. 5+. This Tallboy rounds out the build with SRAM's X01 Eagle drivetrain and Race Face ARC 24 wheels for a ride that's just as ready for epic weekend adventures as it is lining up with a number plate in anxious anticipation of a start command. Compared to the previous Tallboy, the new version takes just a bit off the top of the head tube, dropping 2. 2 degrees to fall from the standard 70. 2 to a moderately slack 68 degrees.

All told, the geometry tweaks add up to a chassis that's far more capable in virtually every trail situation than its predecessor. The Virtual Pivot Point travel also takes a turn for the crunchier, gaining an additional 10mm, which aligns the Tallboy perfectly with the emerging crop of 4. 5in, do-it-all trail 29ers. That's not to say it's just rolling off the press as a faceless frame in a sea of similar models, as the inclusion of Santa Cruz's Flip Chip means the Tallboy can also revel in loose conditions with 27. 5+. The Tallboy is essentially two frames: a race rocket 29er with a long, stable geometry and a plus-size barge for floaty traction on surfaces ranging from off...
