The Santa Cruz Tallboy has been crowned the Downhillers Cross Country Bike and you can see why when you ride this bike. Fast, Light and Stiff to tackle the steepest of climbs then point it Downhill and it turns into a different animal. This really could be the bike to rule them all.
This popular C S bike is a great choice for riders looking for a good affordable trail bike. The Tallboy gives 120mm of travel which is managed by new lower link VPP Linkage which make this bike very pedal efficient whilst allowing you to use all the 120mm with ease. The 130mm Front Fox 34 fork gives you the confidence you need without taking a weight penalty.
This Tallboy C S Bike has Sram new Eagle GX group-set for 2021 giving you the huge 10 to 52t rear cassette so you will always have plenty of gears to get you up any climb here in the Tweed Valley.

AnEnduro World Seriesvenue and legendary in the UK mountain bike scene as one of the most prolific and exciting mountains to ride in the UK.

From World championship wins to the award winning BASE college course, we've experienced and forged it all. Our evolution led to the formation of Tweed Valley Guides and now Tweed Valley Bikes too, allowing us to help you buy the right equipment, and be able to ride with you on the best trails and help you learn how to get the most out of it. Our shop has genuinely grown from the trail.
