Santa Cruz TallBoy CC XX1 Reserve Large

$5900 CAD
This a top-of-the-line TallBoy CC XX1 2018 with Carbon Reserve Wheels. The only non-stock item is a Fox Transfer Kashima dropper post to replace the Reverb that was on it previously. Never crashed, never rained on. In perfect condition, the bike has been ridden a dozen times, less than 300kms total. Getting divorced and my soon-to-be-vampire-ex-wife is sucking my life out of me so I need cash :) Full specs: - 11.7kg / 25.8lbs - Fork: FOX 34 Float Factory Kashima -Shock: FOX Float Factory DPS Kashima - Drivetrain: SRAM XX1 Eagle Complete Drivetrain, 32t - 175mm cranks - Cassette: SRAM XG1295 Eagle 10-50T - Brakess: SRAM Level Ultimate avec rotors de 180mm - HandleBars: SCB AM Flat Bar Carbon 31.8x780 - Stem: Easton Haven 55mm - Wheels: Santa Cruz Reserve Carbon 27mm 28H with Industry 9 hubs 15x110 28H / 148x12 28H XD - Tires: Front Maxxis Minion 29x2.3 DHF 3c EXO TR / Rear Maxxis Crossmark II 29X2.25 DC EXO TR - Dropper Post: Fox Transfer 31.6 Kashima - Saddle: WTB Silverado Team Titanium

Graphene, and many others such as different formats of Carbon Nanotubes, are interesting but the technology isn't mature enough yet. We tested a lot of these in our Carbon Lab, this was one of the main reasons why we built it, and the good stuff will find its way into our bikes in the future.

First massive thing: tooling costs. Not amortized on multiple years of production, but only on a few frames. Also, we developed entirely new processes (printed mandrels, latex bladders) and used brand-new materials which required testing and qualification in the lab.

@budjoni: a rotor blade is developed with vastly different load cases than bike frames or components. In your specific image, I suspect thick sheets over a very fine mesh honeycomb, which can definitely work well for that application. The beauty with composites is that there are endless combinations of processes and materials that can solve an engineering problem

We already use fiber-filled thermoplastics for injected parts, but as far as "continuous" long fiber continuous composites as concerned, we're still experimenting. CFRTP UD tapes are still very challenging to use in bike frames because the material is dry (zero tack) and is much more rigid than Thermoset (Epoxy) UD Tapes, which makes it very challenging for complex shapes and tight radii.

Material cost is about a third of the cost of a frame, and layup time varies greatly from one model to another based on complexity, weight, shape, etc.

@jamesplum: We mostly use Creo's FEA in-CAD suite, but we also used Hyperworks (Opti-Struct mostly) in a few recent projects.
