Buy the Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon CS 2021

The new 120mm Tallboy makes big leaps again for a short travel bike. With a strong Lower Link VPP rear triangle, sporty design, typical Santa Cruz workmanship, and a rather radical geometry, the Tallboy is once again on the way to breaking the boundaries of bike categories.
Sure, 10mm more travel only sounds like a small change – but in combination with our new VPP suspension (controlled via the lower rocker arm), this is a big step for the Tallboy.
A bike that only knows full throttle and is ready to sprint at any time – whether uphill, downhill, or on a flat flow trail. The maximum efficiency of the VPP rear triangle results in pleasantly fast and light-footed handling. Technically, it’s on the same platform as our long-travel bikes, so it’s not just at home on classic XC terrain, but also on “real” trails. Paired with a 130mm fork, the new Tallboy is becoming increasingly attractive, even for aggressive bikers.

    Nice bike, amazing customer service

    Just got my Santa Cruz Tallboy CC mountain bike. Put it together in a couple of hours. It’s beautiful. Big 29er wheels are awesome. I’m totally happy with the purchase. Responsive customer service like this adds confidence to buying online.

    Superior Service

    Ordered it on Saturday night and had it on Wed. Morning, which was great. Beautiful bike packed to perfection, everything in great shape. I noticed my bike did not have the brakes advertised and this is where it becomes superior service.  An BeatusBikes’ rep got my really not nice email and answered me in only about an hour and offered brakes I wanted which he did not have to do. He was so kind I felt bad. I can’t say enough about BeatusBikes. They are the best! Got brakes in just a few days Priority Mail.

    Great customer support

    I bought this bike for my husband’s birthday. It showed up well packaged, except it was missing a front brake pad spacer washer. I reached out to customer service via email, not knowing what to expect. They took care of it right away & shipped out the missing part. Their prices are the best, and now I can say so is their customer service!

    Good Bike, nice customer service

    Ordered the bike on a Sunday evening and it arrived the following Tuesday. Found an issue after assembly and sent them an email Tuesday evening. Received an email reply Wednesday morning and the replacement parts arrived Friday. The bike is back together and working perfectly. IMO, BeatusBikes goes above and beyond to satisfy their customers. Buy with confidence knowing that they will take care of you and your purchase.

    Good bike and good price

    Ordered this bike after reading about it. Received an email with the tracking number the next day. The bike arrived the following day. Unboxed and assembled pretty easily after watching a few videos on youtube. Took a test ride and it is super smooth. I am going to order another bike from this site for my wife. I would definitely recommend this site to anyone looking for a good bike / good price.

    Great value and service

    I was a bit apprehensive about BeatusBikes at first, but decided to take a leap of faith – and I’m very glad I did. I now have purchased two bikes from them, and will not hesitate to do so again. You will not find better value for your money anywhere else.Plus, I had a service question and sent an email. I had an answer within an hour, with more tips and a link to a helpful video. Thanks, BeatusBikes.com! You made me even happier with my decision.

    Top bike Company

    This is my first purchase from BeatusBikes.com, fast friendly prompt shipping. The bike is very well built at half the price of the comparable bike. My son is looking at ordering a bike too. Thanks again.

    Speedy shipping

    I received my new bike in a short time, although I was in no big hurry. After I assembled it I found a bent part so immediately reached out to customer support. They got my new part and a little gift within two days. Very pleased, and love my new bike. Thanks, BeatusBikes
