The Downhiller's XC Bike


The Tallboy 3 has been a Stif favourite since it first landed, improving it was always going to take something radical... and Santa Cruz have not disappointed. Introducing the brand new Tallboy 4.


Whilst the Tallboy 3 muddied the line between XC and Trail bikes, the new Tallboy makes its intentions crystal clear. A 10mm increase in travel, a lower-link driven VPP suspension platform and radical geometry paired with a burlier fork means the new Tallboy is here to shake up the trail bike world.


Everything we loved about the Tallboy 3 – the lightweight and super-nimble chassis and the ability to climb like a mountain goat – remain, but the Tallboy 4 now inspires the confidence to open up the brakes and send it way beyond what you think a trail bike should be capable of.


The lower-link driven VPP suspension is the first thing you’ll notice. With a progressive curve tuned to perfection, the Tallboy 4 provides radical traction and stability when climbing – whether it’s a long winch up a fire road or rocky, rooty technical steeps – you’ll be smashing PB’s all the way to the top. The Tallboy hasn’t forgotten it’s XC heritage at all.


Point the Tallboy back down the trail and the same VPP suspension provides incredible support and grip, as well as a bottomless feeling that’ll make you believe there’s much more than 120mm of travel at your disposal. Pair that suspension platform with the burly 130mm, short-offset fork, a generous front-center and 65.5° head angle and you’ve got yourself an absolute weapon of a trail bike.


A 65.5° head-angle may seem radical for a bike like the Tallboy, but that’s only if you believe a shorter travel bike should be ridden slower. The Tallboy is made for going fast – everywhere and anywhere.

DELIVERY

Ready to ride

Every bike from Start Fitness is fully checked & assembled before despatch and will arrive, almost, ready to ride. Each bike is assembled by one of our CyTech accredited mechanics and then packed into one of our custom boxes. Minimal assembly, with basic tools, is required before you can ride. Assembly tools are not usually included. Please note: Some bikes are not supplied with pedals. Manufacturers don’t know if you want flat or clipless pedals, rather than send the bike with the wrong type, they leave the choice for you to make.   This process has a lead time of between 5-7 working days Unfortunately during peak times this may be slightly delayed. We will however, aim to despatch your bike as quickly as possible.  

Making sure you are home

Once fully checked and boxed, we will contact you to book a delivery date. Our bikes are despatched on a next working day service (excludes weekends & bank holidays) for UK mainland orders, or a two day service to Northern Ireland and outlying Scottish areas. European bike deliveries usually take approximately one week.  


Taking Delivery

Any mechanical or cosmetic issues need to be reported to us within one week of the delivery date. If you do not plan on using the bike straight away, we advise that you remove it from the box and check it over ASAP as we cannot be responsible for any reported issues (other than standard warranty issues) later than one week from the date that the bicycle was delivered.  


First Check-Over

After a few weeks of riding (depending on riding style and conditions), a new bike will need a check-over to make final adjustments and to re-check all nuts and bolts. This is necessary as the bike goes through a ‘bedding in’ phase after which, final adjustment may be necessary. We recommend that this is carried out by a CyTech qualified mechanic. It is important to have these checks carried out to prevent any avoidable problems which may not be covered by warranty and to ensure the smooth running of the bicycle.   We can carry out the first check-over free of charge, at our Newcastle store (NE16JE). If you’ve had the bike delivered, it will be your responsibility to get the bicycle to and from our store for this work to be carried out. This complimentary check-over does not include any labour to replace worn parts or to fit new accessories.   All bikes must be booked in for the first service & must be clean or a £15 cleaning charge will be payable. You can book this by calling 0191 261 4191. Proof of purchase will need to be presented when the bicycle is dropped off for the first check-over.  


Bike Servicing

Bicycles need to be serviced regularly, as a guideline we would advise on at least one full service per year and/or a standard service twice a year. If the bike is used regularly in adverse conditions, more regular servicing may be required.
