Behind the Bike: Developing the XXL Santa Cruz V10
The seat is actually used to control the bike in turns. That is the reason why the seats aren't slammed.

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
@hellbelly: How many volume reducers did those two bikes have in them when you demoed them? I had a db air on my bronson v1 and it was good, but did take a lot of tuning to get right. Even the recommended settings weren't up to par for me. My Nomad was tuned before I got it with the monarch plus, however the fox float x2 is way better and even pedals better now. Rides a little better than the CCDB air with small bumps and big hits. Pretty similar other than that. It took me about a month to get my v1 bronson right and I'm a licensed suspension technician.

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
@hellbelly: That was a trait of VPP bikes in the past. The current models don't have much of that at all. I understand that they used to hang up some, my V1 bronson did that until you really learned how to ride it. I've never seem any recent reviews that said that though. I came from riding different FSR bikes, and it took a while to learn how to ride VPP bikes, but when you get them setup right, they're really fast. VPP bikes do need very aggressive spring curves to function at their best. You have to run about 4 volume reducers to get them to ramp up well and keep them high in their travel. Suspension setup is more critical with VPP than any others that I've ridden. DW link bikes do pedal well, however VPP is still one of the better pedaling designs out there. Especially with all the 4 bar/ horst link bikes out there these days.

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
VPP bikes are known for their good pedaling. May not pedal like a Yeti, but neither does the Trek. Santa Cruz has a much better warranty as well. Each to their own though, the best thing that one can do is buy the bike that rides the best for them. Plenty of good bikes out there these days.

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
@Mattin: That may be the prices over there, however in the U.S. the starter model hightower is $300 more than the Jeffsy. The prices came right off their website. I also compared the hightower to the Jeffsy, not the tallboy to the Jeffsy as they are very different bikes. Santa Cruz is legit about their warranties as well. None of those games apply when buying from Santa Cruz.

The Bakery: Are Trolls Eroding Our Culture?
@WAKIdesigns: No, it's just disresectful, irresponsible, distasteful, and low class.

The Bakery: Are Trolls Eroding Our Culture?
@WAKIdesigns: That's totally not true. I've never seen him do that. And seriously man, the words you said are brutal and completely unacceptable. For you to say that kind of stuff and be a part of this article is the most disgusting, hypocritical thing. You are what this article is about. I'm not friends with badboyleroy, however I've lost a lot of friends over the years. One should never joke about death like that. Karma is a bitch man.
