2017 Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 C R1xRun it 275+ or 29er, the choice is yours.

Pictured is the 2017 Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 C R1x, built as a 29er. Currently in stock we have a size large in yellow, or sizes medium and XL in grey in the R1x build kit.

This all new Tallboy can be run either 275+ or 29. Geometry has a 68 degree head angle, a longer reach and shorter chainstays round out the Tallboy's fun geometry. A flip chip on the upper link ensures the geometry remains consistent through a full range of sizes (S-XXL) or fork sizes (for both wheel size options).

The C-level carbon frame uses a slightly heavier, less-expensive grade of carbon fiber to achieve the same strength, stiffness, and durability you'll find in the CC-level frames, but there's a bit more of the material to achieve it - resulting in only a 280 gram increase in frame weight, and a big cost savings.


  • 110mm VPP™ Suspension
  • 120mm fork for 29" kits/130mm fork for 27.5+ configurations
  • 148mm Rear Axle Spacing
  • 27.5 Plus-Compatible

AbsoluteBLACK RaceFace Oval Cinch Traction chainringRaceFace fans! A new option for your custom build.

AbsoluteBLACK is a rider-developed company based out of the U.K. Their products are strong, lightweight, and extremely easy on the eyes. Made from anodized aluminum.

AbsoluteBLACK RaceFace Oval Cinch Traction chainrings are premium 1X RaceFace direct mount Oval chainrings designed for CINCH system that RaceFace uses to mount chainring directly to the crank. If you have 4 arm RF crank, look at 104bcd Oval ring. Compatible with RaceFace Cinch system cranks, Next SL, SIXC, Turbine, Atlas, and AEFFECT CINCH cranks. Fits Boost148 frames as well. 1x12 Eagle compatible.

Available in sizes 26T, 28T, 30T, 32T, and 34T.  Colors of green, red, and black to complement any build. Our price is $74.95.


Why Oval Chainrings Work (from absoluteBLACK website):

Because a rider does not produce power evenly through a pedal stroke; they maximize the part of the stroke where power is produced and minimize resistance where it isn't. Oval rings make the spin cycle a lot smoother and are easier on legs while climbing. Believe it (or not), but a round chainring doesn't transfer torque to your rear wheel as smoothly as an Oval one. You will actually feel your stroke to be more "round" with an Oval shape than with a round chainring. With oval rings rear tire traction improves greatly on loose and slippery terrain. Smoother power delivery to your rear wheel means that you will be able to maintain better, constant cadence; get less stress on the joints (knees) and therefore be able to keep certain level of effort for longer.
