2015 Santa Cruz Tallboy
First off, i owe Chris a bit of thanks for helping me find this bike.
So this morning i drove up to New Hampshire to DG Cycles to ride some bikes.
I tried 3. Scott Genius, Giant Trance, and the Santa Cruz.
The Scott and Giant are 27.5 and SC is a 29". while the scott and giant felt like similar bikes in many ways, the SC was really a miraculous feeling bike.
Rolls over stuff real easy, and keeps momentum well once you get it going.
It was a pretty easy decision for me, so i went for The Santa Cruz. After purchasing, Chris, being the gentleman he is, walks into the shop with a couple of Starbucks Coffee's for us, all packed up and ready to go for a ride. so we sucked them down and were on our way.
Shortly into our ride, it became obvious to me why i paid $2500 for this bike. What an Amazing ride. It slopped up all the rocks like pebbles. Climbing was a breeze, as the bike just dug in and ate the hills up. This isn't a small bike, but its quite nimble and agile.
Really don't know what else to say, other than I'm super happy with it. I had a perma grin on my face the whole time we were out there.
A great Day it was....
now for some pics
