Santa Cruz Highball Alloy 29er Hardtail Mountain Bike

What is it about Santa Cruz and the bikes they make that have gathered such a rabid following?

Wolfhound Cycles just built the coolest 29er ever.

Agree? Disagree? In my opinion, this is the one of the best looking hard tail bicycle frames I’ve looked at. Which is awesome, because it’s mine. Created for me by Fred Cuthbert at Wolfhound Cycles in Talent, Oregon, this frame is the result of a dialog that has been going on for some time.
