    SC Tallboy-A 29er for a 280lb Clyde??

    I noticed on Santa Cruz's website that the Tallboy, and Tallboy Carbon's Suspension setup charts go up to 280lbs where as the other bikes just go up to 240. You would think that they must have confidence in the bikes performance at that body weight for them to put it on the chart.

    How tall are you?

    I was just looking at the Tallboy and inquired about why no XXL in the Aluminum version and was told that for my weight and height, 6'4" and 240lbs, I would be better off on the carbon frame as it's much stiffer.

    I am pretty sure the TB carbon has no weight limit, not sure about the Aluminum.
