Increasing your Carbon Fiber Footprint.

Before the environmentalist's blow a fuse, I am referring to 2 carbon bikes.

Enter Santa Cruz Tallboy. Went out today and had a chance to see these in action as both Brent & Kieth have just gotten theirs. Can you say flex free frames ? I was watching them climb and the stiffen up on efforts and it is not that common to see people stand and hammer climbs on full squish bikes without using lockouts.

The Silk ti was not feeling the love but judging from the perma grins from the above I know they did. Could not believe how light they build up. Mind you build kits go along way to hit this magic number.

The other thing to note is how nice Durham Forest is at present. Little soft over on Walkers but Durham proper is mint.
