Product Description

2017 Santa Cruz Bicycles Tallboy Carbon CC 29 X01 ENVE Complete Mountain Bike

When it was first introduced, the 29er platform varied so greatly from the then-standard 26 that it was immediately pigeonholed as a hardtail, XC-only brute. Since then, it has continuously defied a series of limiting assumptions — too ungainly, too heavy, unsuited for anything but very short travel — before Santa Cruz Bicycles' made what we thought was the perfect 29er, the original Tallboy. The Tallboy has now undergone two transformations, and the new Tallboy Carbon CC 29 X01 ENVE Complete Mountain Bike adds a series of new wrinkles. These include a set of ENVE M60 Forty wheels, obviously, and features imported from its enduro and more traditional trail bikes, including Boost rear spacing, re-designed linkages, and the brand's latest signature, a so-called flip chip that adjusts the frame's dimensions to keep the geometry the same whether you're running 29in wheels or 27.5+.

Considering its revered status among 29er enthusiasts, a new Tallboy is a big deal, but before we get into the changes it's worth dwelling briefly on the flip chip. The flip chip sits in the upper link and can be rotated to allow the shock mount to migrate. Being able to reposition the shock attachment point effectively accounts for the 9mm difference in radii between 27.5+ and 29in tires, keeping the geometry as static as possible across wheel sizes. SC first introduced this feature on the Hightower, but the brand seems to have perfected it for the Tallboy 3; changing the Hightower results in a slight change in head tube angle, but the Tallboy's head tube angle remains the same for 27.5+ and 29in wheels.

As with the its slacker stablemate, the Hightower, the Tallboy 3's reworked linkage means it's one-by only, but it still comes equipped with ISCG 05 tabs. The threaded bottom bracket is another feature that we've come to just expect from the California-based brand, and it's a strong selling point for those who don't like dealing with the tricky tolerances and creaky interface of press-fit models. The Tallboy 3's 27.5+ mode accommodates every manufacturer's 2.8in tires, but some 3in models may have clearance issues. Understandably, its clearance decreases as a 29er, but SC still ships it with 2.35in tires, which we think occupy the sweet spot of cush and traction without getting top floppy and muddying trail feel.

 

  • The ultimate XC machine for pure racing speed
  • Superlative build kit capped with ENVE wheels
  • 4.3in of the third generation of VPP suspension
  • Cross-country geometry that tilts toward trail aggression
  • Switches between 29in and 27.5+ wheel standards
  • One of the industry's leading carbon construction processes
  • Threaded bottom bracket reduces dreaded, mysterious creaks
