Tested: Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 CC

Nov 09, 2016

Like many, this story begins as the proud owner of either the legendary Tallboy or its updated follow-up the Tallboy 2. Both were undeniable, leading-edge bikes in the budding 29er market. In my case, it was the second version, and like countless skeptics was the bike that sold me on the big wheels. The capabilities of my Tallboy 2 never

Recently I had the pleasure of demoing four top-of-the-line bikes at Whistler Bike Park. Conditions were all-time with the mountain receiving a bunch of rain the week before and then nothing but pure sun for the days I was there.
