    Santa Cruz Tallboy CC v3 – (another) custom build

    A good word to sum up the new Santa Cruz Tallboy is 'versatile’.  Capitalising on the bike’s ability to transform from mile-munching trail bike to ripping-fun-shredder is exactly what this custom build is about. Having your cake and eating it.

    Up front the Fox 34 forks are stiff, supple and controlled, yet light enough to keep the overall weight down. SRAM Eagle XX1 transmission with a 34t front ring gives a hugely useful gear range, again at a low weight. ENVE M60 rims (on the 29er version) with Chris King hubs and Sapim CX-Ray spokes are another super durable, lightweight component choice that will keep the bike feeling nimble and fun.

    So you also want to hammer down the hill? Alongside the lightweight trail kit this Tallboy is also equipped with a 170mm Reverb Stealth post, 800mm wide Easton Haven carbon bars, Easton 60mm stem and Shimano’s superb XT brakes (180mm rotors front and back).

    And what’s that, you also want to smash some trail centres? The Tallboy accepts both 29er and 27.5+ wheels, so for this build we also provided a set of 27.5+ wheels to let the customer satisfy their plus-sized curiosities. A slightly more experimental and therefore cost-effective build on these wheels; Easton’s ARC 40 rims on DT Swiss 240 hubs... Still pretty darn good then!

    Also interested in the Tallboy v3...? We have a Tallboy v3 (Large) available for demo with either 29er or 27.5+ wheels. Give the shop a call 0207 439 9577 or email hello@sohobikes.co.uk to book a ride!
