Very versatile with large wheels, the Tallboy Al is one of the most popular mountain bikes of 2011. Named Al, the bike is available in aluminum yielding to an excellent geometry, line, and suspension with less weight and price.
As the aluminum version of the very successful carbon Tallboy, the Tallboy Al promises the same excellent performance as its predecessor’s. What makes them slightly different is their compatibility with chain guides using an offset lower link.
Crisp handling and fast rolling are offered by the pairing of VPP suspension and 29” wheels of this bike. The same down tube is featured in large and XL 2011 Tallboy Al mountain bikes. On the XXL frame, however, the bike does not promise sufficient tube strength.
