Plus size wheels have been gaining a lot of traction over 2016 and 2017 has seen a few bikes re-designed to accommodate the mid-fat wheels. The revised Santa Cruz Tallboy is available in 2 grades of carbon and alloy frames with either 29 inch or 27.5 plus wheels.
Dion’s build is the XL Alloy frame built up with a Shimano SLX 2×11 Drivetrain, Raceface AR 40 27.5+ Wheelset and Fox Performance suspension. This bike was put together to make long days exploring the hills much more comfortable and ridable. The 27.5+ tyres provide grip-for-days and the range of the 2×11 drivetrain means there’s a gear for every occasion.
Working with customers to get their ideal build is an enjoyable process, we make sure that the bike is built around exactly what the customers needs are, what the bike is going to be used for, where it’s being ridden and accommodating people’s budget.
Putting together that dream bike doesn’t always require re-mortgaging the house or selling a kidney. Your unique ride can often be built for only slightly more than an ‘off the shelf’ option. Meaning the funds are there to get out and do some adventuring on the new rig!
