Making a welcome return to aluminium construction for those on a tighter budget or looking to add a racy 29er to their stable, the Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 29 2017 is the most playful yet fast race and trail bike on the market. 100mm rear wheel travel may not seem a lot, but added to the big wheels it equates to rolling over everything faster and harder than ever before. That trail friendly head angle also means more confident handling, backed up by a bolt through front and rear (12x148mm Boost) end meaning that every descent is point and shoot with no loss of line. The Santa Cruz Tallboy's Rock Shox Rekon 120mm fork soaks up more than it's fair share of bumps and can be locked out up hills. Speaking of climbs, the 1x11 SRAM gearing on all models (there are three available depending on your budget and aspirations) gives you the range you need to tackle any gradient with ease, and a sensible spec'd 30 tooth front chainring offers the perfect balance between mountain goat abilities and all out speed back down the other side. The Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 29 2017 comes with trick up its sleeve too - at the flick of a flip switch (plus swapping wheels and fork) you can turn this beauty in to a 27.5+ bike for bike mountain action and enduro delights. Throw in dropper post routing (and even with a Reverb included on the top end model) and the versatility is endless. With the newly returned aluminium Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 29 2017 you get the best XC trail bike on the market, at prices that don't sting the wallet and with a specification level that is impossible to fault - get one from Biketart now!
