Description of Santa Cruz TALLBOY 3.0 AL 29"/27.5+ MTB Frame - 2017 - dark grey & rust
Happy at Full Gas!
The Tallboy cuts a whole new swath across the trail bike landscape.
In its 29-inch form, the Tallboy's renowned rowdy streak comes to the fore. Happy at full gas, up or down hill, the speed and agility of the 29 configuration will have you bagging on e-bikes at every turn.
As a 27+ bike it revels in the severe. In desert-dry conditions the wider tires float above the dust and find oases of grip where standard tires flounder. And when the monsoon comes, lower tire pressures pull the Tallboy through the slickest of root sections like a Defender on diff-lock.
A 68 degree head angle and 110 mm of VPP travel distills the original Tallboy's playful character into something all the more mischievous. Longer reach and shorter chainstays fuel that personality, and bring the Tallboy bang up to date with the rest of the Santa Cruz range.
A flip chip on the upper link, combined with either a 130 mm fork (for 27+) or 120 mm fork (for 29-inch), ensures geometry remains consistent across a vast range of build kits and sizes, from S to XXL.
The versatile trail bike of choice for rapid riders like Greg Minnaar-the Tallboy is for those who don't roll with the pack.
