    New Tallboy LTc 2014? Or Tallboy TRc maybe??

    I've been waiting to see the rest of this months new releases before buying new TBc and/or LTc frames. Just spotted something interesting in this photo - a trailer full of new SC demo bikes... from a story about the just announced new TBc...

    1st bike is the new TBc, 2nd bike in on the trailer looks like it's another
    carbon 29er, but has different graphics and more importantly a bigger rear shock. A new long travel 29er perhaps???

    I guess we'll know before the month is out...

    I think that second bike is a Solo in the matte black/green color scheme. You can just see some green decaling on the down tube and the chain stay. The silvery grey of the downtube lettering looks the same as the Solo.
    IF... IF...

    Oh yeah, just noticed the green - you might be right. Wishful thinking I guess.

    I'm wishfully thinking about a Tallboy TRc as well, so I can't blame you!

    I wonder if the third bike is pictured here: Hasta las Santas descansan.. Break time for the SCB crew #santacruzlaunch Day2 Ballater, Scotland @Solobici_MTB - img.ly

    The poster of this picture also posted that he was going to Scotland to demo three new Santa Cruz bikes. So all three have been introduced to the press. I don't think we will have long to wait for the official announcement of the third bike..

    You don't think the "third bike" is the Bronson?

    Good point, probably just wishful thinking on my part that they announce one more new bike at the Scotland launch.

    A comment from the author of the Singletrack Magazine article on the TB2 today:
    "We were also riding the Santa Cruz Solo and another, still hush-hush bike too. All seemed pretty capable

    Iím sure Iíll be back thoughÖ"

    Bronson isn't hush-hush, so there must be another one.

    Let's hope we hear something soon. A Tallboy LT with more a more aggressive head angle and chainstay length would make a wicked enduro weapon.

    here's my speculation....
    i noticed on SC's website they moved the TBLT to the AM category from the trail category.....perhaps making some room in their line-up for a Tallboy TR....
