An extremely compelling argument could be made that this is the perfect Trail / All Mountain setup... Our expert wheel builders work with the best components to create the best performing MTB wheels in both carbon and aluminum. Race Face Carbon Next SL G4 cranks provide excellent torque transfer and trail dampening characteristics. Carbon rims, like these 32h Nox Teocalli,  add a level of on trail tracking and precision that aluminum is hard pressed to provide. The Magura MT5 4 piston calipers paired with the latest Magura Storm HC rotors have great modulation, power, and heat capacity. Magura Royal Blood Mineral Oil flows through entire MT lineup. The Magura MT series feature an easy access bleed port for quick bubble bleeds along the way. Why is it so important that it's easy to bubble bleed brakes? So that you will actually bubble bleed your brakes! This build weighed in at a respectable 25.8lbs with an absolutely trail ready spec.

Additional Info This new 2017 Santa Cruz Tallboy could be the best Trail / All Mountain setup out there. Whether you’re looking to go on an all-day mega adventure or take it out on an afternoon enduro trail rip this setup won’t disappoint. The updated VPP 3 (Virtual Pivot Point) suspension, the additional 10mm of travel, longer top tube, slacker headtube, improved carbon fiber layup and design put the modern Tallboy design light years ahead of its predecessors. Where the early Tallboy’s felt like about 80mm travel bikes the redesigned VPP 3 produces a much more continuous feeling suspension throughout the stroke. This equates to substantially better performance on both the small bump compliance as well as ramping deeper into the travel. Instead of feeling like you’re skipping across the trail the new Tallboy is confident and planted even when pushed to modern enduro race speeds. This custom build by features carbon handlebars, carbon cranks and carbon wheels to emphasize trail personality with budget conscious Magura MT5 brakes (still my personal favorite), X01 drivetrain and Fox Transfer Performance adjustable post. Form and function are amazing on this build. There isn’t any wasted movement or dollars so to speak from an on trail point of view. If you’re in the market for a build without compromise, no matter what your budget is, chat with the experts at to dial in the best bike for your particulars. 949-470-1099
