Additional Info I have been riding the absolute snot out of this bike and here is a short version of how it came to be... Covid temporarily closed the local trails that my Santa Cruz Nomad was purpose built for (Rocky Peak = steep and rocky) and I was left riding other local trails that are pretty tame for the Nomad (not so much fun). But it did make me realize I have another massive network of trails right out my front door and I was excited to explore, but if only I had a trail bike... Fast forward a few months and I have this custom built Tallboy that I've been piecing together since early May. Today I installed the new fork and headset leaving only a Turbine R front wheel needed to complete the build.
