    I like that, it looks better than the current offerings. What is mission work shop? I wonder when this new color will come forth and what the other new color will be?

    Website doesn't show it yet. I wonder if this is LT2 or something like that, you know, lighter, slacker, or something...

    I also love the fact that it has a Monarch Plus. Hopefully this will roll into production as is.

    I had this shock on my Nomad and it really suits this type of bike well compared to the RP23. Less platformy, more mid stroke support and more traction!

    Saw one last weekend in Ashland. Yeah the color accent on there is that yellowish green, essentially the same as what the Highball C green accent is. And you can see that broad stripe on the top tube behind the headset extending down a little bit where it says "Tallboy LTc" similar to the markings the Bronson has. I don't know what the new full color option will be for the frame though.
    Thank you Lord for strength, endurance, and salvation.

    The 2014 TBLTc colors are the one shown above and a new blue color. SC sent me pics of both so I could take my pick - they ran out of 2013 XXL frames around the time I placed my order. It looks like there are some other small updates including cable routing for stealth dropper, too.

    sure it's not, but it sure looks like it in the pics, looks heaps slacker, like a couple of degrees - like 67 or something? No, they wouldn't...

    looks like they've beefed up the seatstay pivot mount too.

    compare the slackness, hmmmm, sure it's just the angle of the pic, but the new frames above sure look a lot slacker than the old one below.

    Yeah it definitely looks slacker in these pics. Let me dig up the side shots, if I recall it looks steeper in those. I just assumed they hadn't changed the head angle since they didn't mention it to me when they told me I was getting a 2014. That's kind of an important spec.

    Yeah the side shots look the same to me. Honestly I wouldn't mind if it was 68, I'm already thinking about putting the Works angle set on.

    I was quite happy with the old colours and considering a black/orange frame to go with my orange TBc. I don't mind the gray/yellow colour so that's still an option but the blue one looks like it should be in the Juliana lineup.

    I really wish they would have slackened the head angle though. I realize this doesn't suit the majority of riders but for my riding a 68 HA would be ideal.

    I put a -1 works components headset on my LTc and love it. About $100. Done.
