Michael J.wrote a review of Santa Cruz Bicycles Tallboy 29 D Mountain Bike - 2019 on November 23, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The bike was well set up, and a bunch of small things made a good impression. For example, they had just installed stan's notubes so it wasn't stale, and even sent extra bottles. There were tools for assembly, but not much assembly required (headset bolted on, adjust lever position to liking, insert seat, install wheels). It was also packed really well- lots of padding and zip ties so shipping is safe.
As for the bike, well there are plenty of reviews out there and it just seems to ride great in both XC and Trail categories, and can do more than its limited travel suggests. I'm very pleased.
