Tallboy for a Tallman - Ben Hildred's Santa Cruz Tallboy

Ben Hildred's Santa Cruz Tallboy CC Custom.

Ben likes to ride. Like ride a lot. Follow him on strava and no matter how much you think you ride a lot, Ben's weekly totals will make you feel somewhat inadequate.

He likes to quietly go about his business, pushing his physical limits and seeing just what mind and body can do. When you see Ben on a bike he looks like it is part of him. Every pedal stroke looks effoertless and he has form that has come about from years and years of spinning away kilometre after kilometre. He has never owned a car, he just rides everywhere.

Ben has done a few super human riding feats in the last few years. The most recent was riding to the height of the Stratosphere in 30 days. Thats 55,000m in 30 days. Just think about that. All while working full time.

That is 55,000m in 30 days. Just think about that. All while working full time.

Ben has another challenge up his sleeve. For it he needed a specific tool for the job. The Santa Cruz Tallboy CC is that very tool.
