The Tazmon was manufactured by Santa Cruz Bicycles from 1994 to 1998, their first mass produced MTB frame. It was discontinued in 1998 due to its high manufacturing costs.
This is my Santa Cruz Tazmon which I purchased in California in 1996. The componentry spec has changed through the years, but it's been in its current state for the majority of the time. The ride is still awesome!
