Mike’s Bikes Exclusive Build: Carbon Builds For Less.

These exclusive builds feature a range of affordable ‘D’ build components on a Santa Cruz carbon frame that delivers an impressive ride at an affordable price. Like any other bike from Mike’s Bikes, these exclusive builds have been assembled and hand-tuned by one of our expert mechanics before shipment. This item is new, and given the nature of these builds, slight variations in components may occur. Lifetime warranty applicable to all frames.


Tallboy takes a leap further into what short-travel bikes really are capable of. With kick-ass lower-link VPP suspension, a streamlined design, the typical Santa Cruz refinement, and rather radical geometry, the Tallboy is back to being a genre bending folk hero. 

Sure, 10mm more travel might only seem like one small step—but coupled with a lower link-driven VPP suspension design this is one giant leap for the Tallboy. 

It’s the kind of bike that makes you sprint while going up, along, over, or down due to the maximum efficiency of the VPP design and responsive, lightweight chassis. But because it shares the same engineering principles as our longest travel bikes, the progressive lower link-mounted shock feels equally at home doing cross-country as it does in extreme-country. Paired with a 130mm fork the new Tallboy becomes ever more appealing to riders who like to open it up.

Established theory suggests shorter travel bikes get ridden slower, therefore require steeper and more conservative geometries. In reality though, when was the last time you ever throttled back on a fun trail because you weren’t on a bigger bike? Caution to the wind and all that. So we’ve done the same here and mimicked our longer travel geometry to create a bike with a 65.5-degree head-angle, generous front center, and short offset fork. Something rarely seen on a bike of this ilk. 

The Tallboy is no slouch but certainly no softie either. It has earned a loyal following amongst those who seek a bike that will hold up to the relentless hammering of “power hour” hot laps or hour after hour on solo missions. Its composure at speed gives it a little swagger, as will you after hauling into every pocket turn and launching out the other side. 

There’s no label that quite fits what this bike is. But the name Tallboy says it all. Have at it.
