Old Bikes Never Die..... they just get tinkered with - The General Lee's new clothes

My New-Old Tallboy - Ready to go up, and down, the Bavarian Alps
In with the old AND in with the new! I have been riding my giant orange Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon, aka The General Lee, for a few years now, and it has lost the position of race bike to become a "do it all" trail bike, as a newer, bluer Tallboy has taken this role. But that doesn't mean it ever stopped being my favorite. I now find myself living a rideable distance from the Alps and have swapped the UK's rolling trails for some seriously grown up hills. The hot weather is finally upon us, time to build a bike for the Alps......
