Del the Funky Bike Riderwrote a review of Santa Cruz Bicycles Highball Carbon CC 27.5 X01 Complete Mountain Bike - 2016 on October 19, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this bike after much research and comparison (27.5, 25.5 +, 29?) (Yeti vs Santa Cruz?) (Full-Suspension vs. Hardtail) (overall cost to use ratio) and I don't regret buying it at all. I must preface this by professing that I am not a professional "bikesmen." I'm a recreational, daily rider who has a 2015 rigid aluminum urban bike which I still love and enjoy.
BUT, this bike is a great addition, the construction is great, the frame and components are a definite upgrade from what I am used to. The ride and feel is something I have been missing but was not aware I was missing it. The fit and feel is perfect for me along with a discounted cost, how could you not appreciate those qualities?
My experience with backcountry.com has been nothing but spectacular. When I received my bike, it was easy to put together. I used their youtube video as a tutorial to ensure I was doing it correctly and not missing something in the process as I was working through my excitement of the moment.
Customer service, product and prices have kept me coming back to backcountry.com over and over again. My verdict... Recommend!!
