It is rare that a bike frame offers total versatility, but the new Santa Cruz Tallboy Frame Aluminium 2017 does just that. Essentially, you can choose from two completely different bikes, either a rowdy all mountain 27.5+ MTB or a slick, fast rolling, race worthy 29er with a the highest calibre competitive pedigree. Whichever you choose, your Tallboy will be built around a beautifully finished, class leading, hydroformed aluminium frame from the Santa Cruz, the best bike company in the business. The whole concept hinges around a simple 'flip chip' built into the linkage which allows you to set the bike up with a higher stance for 27.5+ tyres and a 130mm fork or lower and faster for 29er wheels and a 120mm fork. Handling on the Tallboy 2017 will remain just as sharp, with the bottom bracket height and geometry (with a playful 68 degree head angle) kept exactly the same. Built with a new 148mm Boost rear end, to ensure the best possible tracking in the roughest terrain as well as future proofing when you are ready for a wheel upgrade the Tallboy is as modern as it is adaptable. Whichever style of riding you lean towards, you can create the perfect, affordable custom built option by choosing the Santa Cruz Tallboy Frame Aluminium 2017 as the heart of your new bike.

Creating a complete bike from the frame up is no small undertaking. Let the expert custom build team at Biketart guide you through the process from headsets and BBs to mechs and bars, we will make sure that you get the best possible complete Santa Cruz Tallboy Frame Aluminium 2017 at the end of the process.
