2014 Tallboy LT Aluminum 29er

For the upcoming mtb season rapidly upon us Santa Cruz engineers adequately equipped the Tallboy Long Travel model with a solid 135mm worth of rear travel and is designed the same as the carbon brother with having 130mm to 150mm front fork options in mind. The head tube angle was slacked out from the first generation Tallboy by 1.5 degrees and the seat tube has been slackened as well by a 1/2 degree from where the original ride’s stand. This will definitely put the Santa Cruz Tallboy models in the All Mountain platform or category of 29er mountain bikes.

Some classic aluminum 29er mtb features like hydro-formed top and down tubes, tapered head tube, 142 X 12mm rear through axle. Except they have elected to stick with a traditional standard threaded bottom bracket for both Tallboy models of these long travel 29er bikes. Here is what they had to say, “we think this is still the best, most user friendly, widely compatible, globally serviceable way to install a bottom bracket.

By Santa Cruz changing the lower link making it offset has opened it up for better clearance for bigger twenty niner all-mountain rear tires that become available. The chain stays are just at 17.9 inches in length. They have recessed the grease ports for the lower link to protect them underneath the frame. The pivot axles have collet style hardware and the frames have continuous cable housing mounts for dropper seat posts. The new models of 29er mountain bikes also have ISCG05 tab mounts.
