Stolen: UK’s only Santa Cruz Tallboy

Jungle Products want it back urgently

Have you seen this bike?

Europe’s only Santa Cruz Tallboy has been stolen from importer Jungle Products by thieves who broke in to the company’s Yorkshire HQ on Tuesday, 25 August.


The bike had been shipped over from the US to display at Eurobike in Germany next week, and Jungle are very keen to get it back.

“Amongst various office computers, clothing, helmets and the like the scumbags also took a decent amount of Santa Cruz and Ibis bikes,” said Jungle CEO Dickon Hepworth.

The Tallboy in particular is “certainly the only bike of its kind in Europe. And one of only a handful made so far – so its going to stand out like a sore thumb on the trails. Please ask everyone out there – riders, shops and the like, to keep an eye out.”
