Despite the April 1 release date I can assure you that the rumors that have been circulating for months are very true. Santa Cruz is building on the success of the carbon and aluminum Tallboys by introducing two longer travel versions, dubbed the Tallboy LT and Tallboy LTc.
Santa Cruz has made a habit of leading with carbon before introducing more affordable, aluminum versions. While this was the case with the original Tallboy and the Highball, the company will bring both carbon and aluminum versions of the Tallboy LT to market in the coming weeks.
Both bikes feature tapered headtubes; ISCG mounts, allowing riders run to run chainguides; an offset lower link to improve chainguide clearance; recessed grease ports on the lower link; and continuous cable routing.
