Santa Cruz Tallboy/Hightower - Review
Quote: "The Hightower is a consistently strong all-rounder; a far steadier and more confident descender than its predecessor and a bike that plays solidly in the same league as the BETTER long-travel 29ers out there."...... So an Evil bike or a Jeffsy and huge pocket change for a holiday. Sounds. Good.

1 Question - What's Keeping the Gearbox Down?
P.s. I really hope the Zerode sells well to those who can afford them. Then other manufacturers will take note.

1 Question - What's Keeping the Gearbox Down?
I take issue with: "Over 6,500 of the 10,000 replies stated that it had either been more than two years since they broke a derailleur, they couldn't even remember the last time they broke one, or that they've never even had an issue". When a bike costs as much as a car, i don't expect any component to fail on it within 2 years when said expensive bike is being used in the way it was designed for. If your using an XC bike to Downhill on thats another story. Some may say, but thats the owners fault for hitting the derailliuer against a rock. And i would reply isn't the mountain bike as a whole designed to go up and down mountains which contain rocks e.g. its a product design fault and can be bettered by utilising a gearbox. Bicycle companies seem to pass the buck stating its not our fault with our bike (e.g frame) its the fault of the component. They sell the product and should take ownership of what they are selling as a whole. A vehicle manufacturer wouldn't pass the buck if an integral part of the vehicle, like a gearbox, fails within its natural life span. They'd fix or replace it or be expected to make a better product. Rock or no rock. A mountain bike is designed to encounter rocks. And a multi-thousand dollar bicycle should definitely be able to cope with them. In short. Bike manufacturers know they can make a better bike but choose not to. Component manufacturers know the derailleur, at its heart, is a faulty design but choose not to fix the fault by making a better drivetrain.
