Are hydraulic suspention in Santa Cruz...

Are hydraulic suspention in Santa Cruz tallboy bicycles?

Just any.


Suspensions offered, at this time, on Santa Cruz Tallboys use oil, springs and gas (nitrogen and/or air to work). They are not fully hydraulic as some bicycle brake systems are. Suspension design is complex. Not to push you off, but to get more knowledge, go onto Wikipedia and search for bicycle suspension. That's a good start. If you buy a bike that has full suspension like the Tallboy, you will need to know how your suspension works in order get the most out of it and to perform basic adjustments and maintenance.

Just a Heads up

    Hey Guys, Perry here from HuckNRoll. Just a heads up. The R XC Build comes with a Reba RL 29 100 Taper, not the Fox listed. We are in the process of changing the description, but follow the images you see and what you see on Santa Cruz's website. Thanks!

    ..Getting ready to pull the trigger on my 1st 29er & I'd like your 'pro'-opinion: Can you give me the as built weight on the Tallboy Carbon R XC in a large? I'm trying to justify $$ for VPP/29 combo vs: Yeti SB-96 (in a middle of the road-build), vs: Salsa Spearfish 1 large (XC), or possibly Horsetheif (AM). I know it's your job, but please try to be as unbiased as possible. I'd like to keep it around $3 - 3.5K. Priorities here: Budget, Weight vs performance. I primarily ride endurance XC, w/some road-trip IMBA-epic's mixed in, so AM-performance would be a bonus. Thanks for your time.

    The Tallboy is the most versatile 29er FS frame currently on the market. I have seen it set it up here int the local shop (Habitat) as a 23.5lb XC Race Machine (full XX and Reba XX fork) and a 27lb Plush Trailbike. It can be set up as you wish. The XT build is going to come in around 25lbs. Ride On!
