Santa Cruz Bicycles Tallboy Carbon 29 R1x Complete Mountain Bike 2017

2016 saw some well received changes to Santa Cruz's much loved Tallboy, including a few geometry tweaks, an updated linkage, and the third generation of VPP suspension. We're happy to report that those updates are back for 2017 with some new colorways and build kits to boost your time on the trail. The 2017 Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon 29 R1x Complete Mountain Bike harnesses the XC spirit of the original Tallboy and adds a bit of all mountain flair to dig into bigger terrain with ease. Santa Cruz specs this particular build with SRAM's NX drivetrain, Level T hydraulic brakes, and smooth spinning WTB wheels wrapped in versatile Maxxis tires.

This complements a stable, confident front end that's prepared to charge through rock gardens and unpredictable descents alongside your enduro rig driving cohort. Tallboy 3 also benefits from Santa Cruz's improved flip chip technology. Making its inaugural appearance on the Hightower, the flip chip allows riders to change their frames to be compatible with either 29in wheels or 27. 5. On the Hightower, this switch results in slight changes to head tube angle, but on the Tallboy 3, you can ride either wheel size without adapting to any alterations to frame geometry. Whether you enjoy the plush, cushy ride of 27. 5 or were an early and loyal supporter of bombproof 29er stability, you w...
