Product Info

The Santa Cruz Bicycles Tallboy C R Complete Mountain Bike is a stunning example of just how great bikes have become. Given the bike industry's timelines, this Tallboy's budget-friendly components were on top of the line superbikes just a few years ago, and they're still very capable - most of us would be hard-pressed to notice a difference in anything but money saved. The heart of this model is the C-carbon frame, with its updated geometry and ability to ride way out of its perceived short-travel suspension limitations. The Tallboy really is the DH rider's XC bike, from the fun-championing MTB company we all love.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon C FrameA minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.

Lower-Link Mounted VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.

Fox Float DPS Performance Rear ShockPerformance Series FLOAT DPS shocks have fewer adjustments than Factory Series (no Open mode adjust tuning range), and have black anodized air sleeve and body instead of Genuine Kashima Coat.
