    I want to grab a butcher frame so bad I can taste it! The price would be worth the trouble of making a medium work for me.

    DAMN!

    Yeah, for a moment their site didn't have the "VPLS" on the page. I had to hunt in my computer history for the order page. Thinking they might have run out, I completed the order. After that the "VPLS" link was up again.

    Strange. It worked to make me pull the final trigger. I wish it hadn't done that. Now my wallet is lighter.

    No you don't...get a 10mm thru axle and you won't know the dif over 12/142.

    What bikes like the TRc need is ISCG tabs!

    I'll pass on the new colors/142 rear end....

    The $1500 TRc w/135mm rear (or other bikes on sale) is an "absolute" bargain......

    I was totally J/K. It's still a killer deal. I rode with a 135x10 (5 Spot) before and now a 142x12 (Mojo HD) and really can't tell a difference. Now if I can find some killer deals on wheels, drivetrain, fork, brakes....uh oh. There goes my bank account!

    Looks like the Tallboy AL has sold out.

    I am 5'9".
    I don't know, but I just bought the TRc frame to find out. I also own a Tallboy, which I love. I'm 5'7" and have wondered whether 650b might just fit me better. I also have been riding a 2006 Epic Marathon 26er and find the smaller wheels are a lot more fun in certain ways, although not as good through the rock gardens.

    Compared to the Tallboy, the TRc has 1" more travel and has a slacker geometry, so it should have a different feel. It also has shorter chainstays. I expect it to have a more playful feel, quicker acceleration, and be more tossable than the TBc. It should also be easier to get the front end up and over obstacles. On fast rocky descents it might be a wash between the smaller wheels with more travel and slacker geometry and the bigger wheels with less travel. The TBc will still roll through rock gardens better -- I don't think the extra travel makes up for the bigger wheels in the rock gardens.

    I'm initially building my TRc as a 26er since I already have the wheels and tires. I think big 26x2.4 tires will provide some of the benefits of 650b and gives more choices in tires. Eventually I'd like to try the 650b experiment, which will probably put it closer to the TB, and it could possibly even replace the TB. With a set of burly 26er wheels & tires for rough trail riding and set of lightweight and faster-rolling 650b wheels & tires for racing or smoother terrain, the TRc could possibly do it all.

    My order is still showing as pending, it looks like others have had either shipment notifications sent or cancellations. Maybe I'll wait to buy parts until I know mine has shipped.

    I stand corrected... it's back. (But the L TRc is missing.) Interesting sale to watch.

    My order is still showing "Pending" too and I ordered on Monday night. Just noticed too that the TRc only has S and XL sizes left. This is making me really nervous! I'm definitely waiting until it ships before I start ordering the other parts I need.

    That's probably a good idea. I ordered pretty early yesterday morning and haven't heard anything either. I imagine they have quite an order backlog to get through.

    Yup.

    Now if someone wanted to give me $1500 for a carbon XC frame AND fork ......I may be tempted.
    But for now I don't think a tapered head tube and new colors are going to make me go any faster.

    I don't see the Tallboy on there anymore, I guess it went away again.

    Anyone had a blur TRc order cancelled? I ordered a small last night for my girlfriend, and called SC and they said they could not confirm whether or not my order would actually go through! Kind of annoying since I have to wait to order the fork and everything else. I asked the SC lady when this might go through and she said she had "no idea" and it could be a week. I hope this isn't how SC customer support usually is, as this is my first SC frame.

    I've been put off by Santa Cruz so far, it would have been my first purchase from them.

    Placed order on Monday evening, called Tuesday morning to confirm, the lady, Lisette, didn't have a clue about anything other than my order being accepted in the system. Anything you asked about the VPLS sale or inventory, she directed me to the email on the page (and said it's not her department), which was a general info@santacruzbicycles.com.

    I emailed them on Tuesday morning too after the quick call, only to get a response from Lisette to the email I sent. But wait, I thought this wasn't her department.

    Overall, I'm unamused about the VPLS sale, and definitely not impressed with Santa Cruz as a company thus far. This will make me think twice before getting a frame from them.

    What did they expect when they released the sale online, of course it's going to be a lot of interested parties, so why not set up a merchant's site with real time inventory and not just taking credit card info, accepting and confirming orders, when in fact they don't have the inventory to sell.

    I imagine they are doing each order one-by-one and it will take a while. Probably a separate department than the people who are shipping stuff out to dealers regularly. Maybe even one guy processing all the sale orders. If they say it will take a week that could mean two weeks.

    I can say with certainty from experience that their product support once you have the bike is excellent and not something I'd be concerned about. It is quite apparent, however, that direct product sales is not their specialty.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    I placed my order late Monday night for a TRc and just received the shipping notification! Frame is scheduled for delivery tomorrow!(I'm about 1.5 hours away from Santa Cruz). Super stoked.

    Awesome to hear that they're shipping some out already. I ordered an XL TRc and really hope it gets shipped without a problem.

    Credit is due to Santa Cruz for giving us this opportunity even though there may be issues with the process. This definitely isn't part of their core business so there are bound to be some hiccups.
