Tallboy LT V2 MY15


If big wheels, big rides, big races and big adventures are your thing, the Tallboy LT is your big ticket.

Our 135mm VPP™ 29er hauls riders through such brutal events as the Downieville Classic, Andes Pacifico and Trans Provence.

29" wheels are a noticeable advantage on long rides and multi-day races.  They keep up momentum, smooth out terrain and give an impression of more suspension than the travel suggests.

Still available in different color options for aluminum, the Tallboy LT is like a Bavarian sports tourer for the offroad World.

Looking for something more XC/Trail?  Check out the Tallboy.

Interested in other All Mountain/Trail options?  The Bronson and 5010 are worthy 27.5" wheeled candidates.
