Tailwind Cycles Chicago  A full-service bike shop located in Chicago, IL #wemakeyourrideeasy HOURS: Mon-Fri 11-7, Sat 10-5 CLOSED Sun. https://www.santacruzbicycles.com

The @santacruzbicycles Hightower C is in stock at Tailwind Cycles! We took it out on the trails in Wisconsin over the weekend and it was amazing. This is the stock R carbon C build which features a @srammtb NX Eagle drivetrain, Rock Shox Revelation DebonAir fork, custom tuned Fox Float Evol shock, and Race Face Aeffect dropper post. The bike rides amazing straight from the factory without changing anything. And, I appreciate the mustard/slate blue paint matches our favorite Half Acre beer! .

We just had a nice custom wheel upgrade in the shop. @industry_nine Ultralite 235 wheelset with a custom gold and black spoke pattern. We finished the wheels off with the brand new @goodyearbike Eagle tubeless tires. So far we are really impressed with the setup and ride quality of the Goodyear tires. .

Great weekend out at the Palos Meltdown! Five of the @skunkworksmtb ladies got out and raced with three of them landing podium spots. The highlight of the weekend was @bekasaurus taking the top step in the women's pro/expert race! We saw a lot of people demo bikes and even got some people out on the @van_dessel ADD set up in party-mode with 27.5 x 2.2" @vittoriatires AKA knobbies. Can't wait 'till next year. .

We're a little late on this re-gram, but we wanted to make sure to give a shout out and congratulations to a couple of @skunkworksmtb riders who made it happen at @usacycling Mountain Bike Nationals last weekend. @bekasaurus and @whitonj both landed on the podium in their respective age groups. Nice work ladies! .

New truing stand day! We've been seeing a lot of wheels with fat tires lately, so it was time for an upgrade to the @parktoolblue TS4. Beer can for scale. .

Our latest build is the @van_dessel Gnarzan. Once we got this bike built up, we couldn't wait to get it out on the trail, so we don't have any photos of it clean. The build specs are: @srammtb GX Eagle drivetrain with Guide brakes. Custom built wheels with @wildernesstrailbikes Scraper rims laced to Bitex boost hubs topped off with @maxxistires Icon Plus in 27.5 x 2.8". The suspension is handled by a @rockshox Revelation fork, which was lowered to 140mm and upgraded with a DebonAir spring. It has Descendant bars and a KS Lev dropper post and is finished off with @ergonbike Enduro grips and SME3 saddle.
This bike is so much fun to ride! We have it in the shop available for test rides, so if you have been curious about the 27.5 plus hardtail trail bike thing, come check it out. .

A special bike for a special lady! We just finished up this custom @julianabicycles build for @whiskeysundae with a @srammtb XX Eagle group. @rockshox Revelation fork, Monarch Debonair shock and a Reverb dropper post handle the suspension duties. We installed one of the new @wolf_tooth_comp headsets in the frame. @industry_nine hubs laced to Whiskey carbon rims with Sapim Race spokes make up the wheels, finished off with @vittoriatires Mezcal tires in 27.5"x 2.25". @ergonbike grips and saddle in berry color complete the build.
