Bike Check: Ben Hildred’s Santa Cruz Tallboy

You might have recently read about Ben Hildred’s exploits as he climbed 21,635 meters of vertical over the course of three days. Why 21,635 meter exactly? Well, the height of Olympus Mons, the tallest planetry mountain in the solar system, is 21,288 meters and Ben clearly decided it was better to be safe than sorry.

The bike wasn’t just built for going up, but also to be capable and inspire confidence coming back down.

Ben stands at 194cm and chose the XL size. He rides the bike in the low setting, with its chainstays in the long position. Ben feels that for taller riders this achieves better rear-wheel traction while pedalling seated.

The bike was outfitted with a 140mm travel Rockshox Pike Ultimate that was coupled to 120mm rear wheel travel delivered via a SIDLuxe Ultimate shock. The fork was run at 85 psi with 2 tokens installed. The

During some late-night perusing of the online classifieds, Nikki Dart abruptly stopped scrolling when she came across a 1970 Dodge Dart Swinger with the original slant-six and 904 automatic transmission intact. By the next afternoon, she was handing over a deposit to hold the vehicle (which still boasts the OG paint and sheetmetal) until the next day when she could get it evaluated. While the evaluation went off without a hitch, the journey home was a little rocky, as the Swinger stalled a handful of times on the 45-minute drive to Montreal, Canada.
