#SantaCruz bicycles #Tallboy v4 build part 1! The redesigned lower link #VPP, a short travel 29er that I've been waiting for. It has Enduro geometry with 120/130mm travel, perfect replacement of my old Transition Smuggler. Santa Cruz calls it extreme country, downhiller's XC bike. D-country anyone? In this part 1 I'm taking a closer look at the frame, this is a 2020 Tallboy CC version and all the juicy details are included. Enjoy!
