The Tallboy goes a step further in short-travel bikes with 120mm travel, lower-link VPP suspension, a streamlined design, and improved geometry. The 10mm more of travel coupled with a lower link-driven VPP suspension design is a step towards even more capability. It combines quick ascents with handling gnarly descents. It has some of the same geometry as Santa Cruz's longer travel bikes such as a progressive lower link-mounted shock. Paired with a 130mm fork the Tallboy becomes good for riders who like to open it up. The Tallboy's short-short 430mm chainstays have +/- 10mm of rear axle adjustment to ensure riders of all sizes and styles feel equally comfortable.
