The Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon C continues to tower over the competition when it comes to 29ers with attitude. Awarded "Bike of the Year" time after time, the balanced geometry and proprietary carbon lay-up creates a killer package that screams XC performance, and delivers trail shredding capabilities. Features include an improved rear shock rate, direct mount front derailleur, a larger BB junction for improved stiffness, and dropper seatpost internal routing. Earmarked with the latest VPP suspension and a sophisticated carbon fiber chassis, the rock solid Santa Cruz Tallboy 29" Carbon C frame is designed to be flex-free and fun handling. Using a unique, three-process construction, this curvaceous carbon fiber frame becomes more than just a pretty face, offering amazing stiffness and strength while keeping a feathery-light weight of 5 lbs. 3 oz. (Med). The Tallboy was designed to use a 100-120mm fork, and with 100mm of rear travel, this 29er delivers clean, neutral pedaling without bob or feedback, and plush, bump-eating suspension across the board. 5 year warranty. Shock pump is sold separately.
