Introducing the new Santa Cruz Tallboy 3, even more capable and versatile than it's predecessor. 29er or 27.5+? It's your call. A flip chip on the upper link, combined with either a 130mm fork (for 27+) or 120mm fork (for 29-inch), ensures geometry remains consistent across a vast range of build kits and sizes, from S to XXL.
A 68 degree head angle and 110mm of VPP travel pumps up the original Tallboy’s playful character. Longer reach and shorter chainstays fuel that personality, and brings the new Tallboy bang up to date with the rest of the Santa Cruz lineup of bikes.
Currently in stock, we have the Santa Cruz Tallboy 3CC with XX1 build kit in sizes small and large. MSRP is $7799.
This is the bike that we've been waiting for since the Original Tallboy was released! Tani, the shop owner, already has his ordered.
To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Portland-based Chris King Precision Components, Santa Cruz Bicycles has produced a limited run of its 5010 CC with special component spec and finish. Only 40 will be made (pictured is #28), and they’re available NOW.
The new 2016 Intense Spider 275 Carbon is a new class of trail bike. Intense has created a well-rounded machine that will pedal well and descend with equal skill. Lightweight, nimble, and fun, so you can enjoy the ride.

The ultra versatile Bell Super 2R MIPS-Equipped MTB helmet is a full-face helmet with a chin bar that can be removed to create a half shell helmet. This helmet bridges the gap between a half shell helmet and a dedicated full face helmet, giving riders the option to have greater coverage but without needing to carry two separate helmets.
Bell's Multi-Directional Impact Protection System takes the protection a step further, providing an extra layer of protection inside the helmet that rotates in order to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head on impact.
Now available in limited edition Star Wars Boba Fett and Stormtrooper models, while supplies last! In sizes S, M, L, MSRP is $240.
The RockShox Reverb Stealth seatpost may look the same on the outside, but the internals have been completely redesigned for even better performance, improved stiffness, and enhanced reliability. Now available in even more size and travel options, including a whopping 170mm travel length.
