Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon CC Shimano XT / XTR 27.5"+ Custom Bike - 2018

Select Santa Cruz Tallboy Frame

Details

The Santa Cruz Tallboy CC cuts a whole new swath across the trail bike landscape. As a 27+ bike, in desert-dry conditions the wider tires float above the dust and provide grip where standard tires flounder, and lower tire pressures pull the Tallboy through the slickest of root sections. In its 29-inch form, the Tallboy's renowned rowdy streak comes to the fore. Happy at full gas, up or down hill, the speed and agility of the 29er configuration will have you grinning. A 68 degree head angle and 110mm of VPP travel distills the original Tallboy's playful character into something all the more mischievous. Longer reach and shorter chainstays fuel that personality, and brings the Tallboy up to date with the rest of the Santa Cruz range. A flip chip on the upper link ensures geometry remains consistent across a vast range of build kits and sizes, from S to XXL. This CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as the C-level frames, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of some lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Using this material in key places allowed for less material overall, which is what shaves off more than half a pound from the frame. Lifetime warranty. Shock pump is sold separately.

Frame: High-Grade Carbon CC chassis, 110mm VPP Suspension, 12x148 Rear Axle, 29-inch or 27.5 Plus-Compatible, One Bottle Cage Mount, Flip-Chip on upper link to maintain geometry, Integrated Headset (IS41/52), Internal carbon tubes ensure precise and hassle-free routing of derailleur and seat post cables, removable front derailleur mount, Threaded Bottom Bracket, ISO brake mounts accommodate up to 185mm rotors. Shock: Fox Float Factory DPS Kashima. Frame Weight (Med): 5 lbs. 3oz. Recommended Fork Travel: 120-130mm. Wheel Size: 29-inch and 27.5+. Seatpost: 31.6mm

Afterwards do 20 full stops braking from a medium speed. Attention: the rotors get very hot, do not touch them!
