Tallboys are usually reserved for hipster who drink like fish, but Santa Cruz's version is a little more fun than they could pack into a can. Toss a leg over this XT-kitted pleasure craft, and let the monstrous momentum from the 29-inch wagon wheels roll. Speaking of wagon wheels, Santa Cruz engineers didn’t slap big rollers on an archaic frame design to catch a ride on the 29er band wagon—they developed the Tallboy from the ground up so the true advantages of big wheels shine through. From lung-seizing climbs to tear-jerking speeds, this mega-competent, carbon fiber wonder machine is the clear choice for mountain-adventure junkies.

  • Shimano 10-speed XT drivetrain ensures you have the perfect gear in every situation
  • DT Swiss hubs laced to Mavic rims keep you rolling fast through even the roughest terrain
  • Fox 32 fork and RP2 shock smooth out the bumps without sapping your energy

Do you guys offer this rig with a 120 FIT RLC. I'm a 5'11 200lb rider and may need a bit more travel.

Maybe I don't need it?
