The trail I rode had a bit of everything from roots, rocks, climbing, descending, tight switchbacks, you name it. I had a smile the whole time (except when my leg's were cramping like mad). Literally the second I sat on it at the shop when I picked it up, I was in love.

    That's not possible,the Tallboy is a flexi POS according to Muzzanic. NO ONE switches from a Niner and is happy.

    Ha Ha! In fact, it is not flexy at all. I have an XXL and am 210 pounds. I got one of the garage sale frames with the quick release rear, and am using a DT Swiss RWS 10mm Skewer with my Hope hubs, and I have not felt anything moving back there at all. Just got back from another 16 mile ride, still smiling!

    I'm pleased that you are having fun on it.

    I feel for you guys that get real bad weather & can't ride because of it, I think I'm hard done by if I miss a ride because of the weather.

    I have a EMD and planned to purchase a RIP9, but saw the SC online sale last fall and couldn't pass up a Tallboy AL frame for $900. It's a fantastic bike and I love riding it. Would love a carbon Tallboy, but the OEM price is way out of reach. I'll keep watching the online sale and if one turns up in my size for $1500, it will be hard to turn down.

    Great pic, although that bad boy looks precariously close to the edge! The blue is such a great color.

    Would you recommend the Tallboy for a 6.4, 240lb big and beefie bloke. I have come off a Turner 2010 DWL Sultan which was too lounge chair for me and the trails I ride - big and cumbersome. I am looking for something more XC set up, 100mm travel, HA around 70 and trail worthy - I dont race. I would set it up with strong wheels, TA front and rear, dropper post , 120mm up front, short stem and wide bars - as an all day single track slayer

    I'm 225, came off 5 to 6 inch travel 26ers and this bike/29er is absolutely perfect! I do not miss/notice the extra 1 inch of travel.. I pretty much ride all the single track in northern Utah and ride down in Moab/Zion without any problems. I run it with a 120 up front and the only thing I switch up on more technical trails is my front tire.. I go from a maxxis Ikon to a ardent.

    To answer your question; if you're riding mostly XC type singletrack trails with the occasional "all mountain" trail, your size is not going to be an issue at all. If you're riding more "all mountain" type trails and you're not the most agile rider I would possibly look at the Tallboy LT .. This bike is a very tough 4 inch travel bike and can handle the rough stuff surprisingly well!! All that being said, i have a few buddies who went from a Tallboy to a Tallboy LT for the extra travel and say the climbing difference is very minimal between two..

    JohnD, I agree completely with Utah 29er. I'm not quite as big as you two at 6' and 190, but my setup is almost exactly like you describe. 120 fork, 70mm stem, 750 bar, 2.35 Nobby Nic/2.25 Rocket Ron tires, Arch EX's on Kings, dropper post, etc. I absolutely love the Tallboy. It is just incredibly fun to ride. I too came off a 6" bike and don't miss it at all.

    Cheers,

    It's been a while, but I'm almost there with my build. I've put in some time on it, but I've still got some changes to make. I think I want to try out a 0 degree stem next. I originally had a MRP Micro chain guide and Sram grip shifters mated with an XO rear derailleur. The full chain guide wasn't for me so a switch it out last week for the 1x and clutch derailleur. Other than a broken chain yesterday it's been all good.

    Still lovin'

    My tallboy just got a refresh after almost a year of hanging in the garage.

    I realized I had it substantially overbuilt for where I was riding it 95% of the time. The result is a quicker, more lively, more fun bike that is just as *strong* as before but with weight dropped and added in different places to get the ride I was looking for.

    The major changes:
    - King hubs on Arch EX rims laced by Dave's Speed Dreams. These things are unreal. They weigh in at a touch under 1,800g with a steel freehub body and fun bolts. Don't miss my flows at all. I had actually bought the Flow EX's and Dave traded me out for the Arches after going through what I was looking for.
    - Lev drooper post. This was added after riding some local trails on my pump track bike and realizing how much fun it was to flick around without the seat in the way. Loving it so far...
    - Type 2 rear der. Soooo quiet and allowed me to switch from a full chain guide to a top mount only. I am getting a bit of a noise from it when compressing the suspension. Only two rides so far.
    - Ditched the angleset. I think if I was still out west, this would have stayed, but back in the Midwest it was too much. One of the greatest attributes on the Tallboy is its short wheelbase...I went back to a standard headset and I'll be trying one offset bushing for giggles.

    Hope to get a long ride in on it next weekend at Brown County.

    I bought one of the last large Tallboy (Al) frames from the Santa Cruz VPLS sale a few weeks ago and just finished the build last night. I got out on the bike this afternoon for a quick 8-mile test ride, and I'm a big fan so far. Eventually I'll try to lighten her up a little bit, but for now it's just what I wanted... a perfect compliment to my Blur LT.

    Build specs:

    Large Tallboy frame
    Fox 32 Float FIT RLC fork, 120m
    Fox CTD rear shock, 100mm
    Full X9 drivetrain/shifters
    WTB Frequency i19/XT wheelset
    Avid Elixir 1 brakes
    Race Face Ride XC crankset

    Love reading through this thread, so many variations and great builds. Nearly a year since building this I finally got around to putting it on a scale and it came in at 28.3 lbs, pretty good for the following build I recon:
    • Large frame with Fox 34 float fork reduced to 120mm, cytoe guard
    • Wheel set - lb stronger wider carbon rims, king hubs - 15LD front/142 rear, 2mm straight gauge spokes, brass nipples, gorilla tape, 2.3 s-works purg front/2.1 ground control rear (captain pictured wore out), 2 red cups stans each end
    • XT brakes with 180 rotors
    • XT shifters, 2x10, gore sealed cables, xt front mech and xtr shadow plus rear
    • kmc sl chain
    • sixc cranks, turbine chain rings, hope ceramic bb, xt trail pedals
    • sixc bar, turbine 60mm stem, king headset and esi chunky grips
    • Joplin post, wtb rocket v saddle

    latest setup


    It's a keeper.

    ^^^ I've got mine built up similar as a do-it-all trail bike. I love it. It's such a versatile bike. Solo after work rides, local rides with the guys, 50 mi all day exploring, shuttle days, family rides. This bike does it all well.

    Got mine put together just in time for a few intense thunderstorms to roll through. Wonder how many kittens I kicked in a past life to warrant that karma.

    Got about twenty miles of dirt under the wheels on this thing since getting it on Friday. Got to say that I made the right choice on which bike to buy.

    Quick. It was direct from SCB. I am building it now.

    The only hang ups so far are:
    1. I failed to notice the cable housing is full run so I had to run to the LBS to get some.
    2. The DM front der is 2x10 and it hits the seat tube before I can adjust the limiter to clear the chain in granny.

    Ouch. Mine was a warranty replacement from a cracked TB1c, I don't know if the 2 is actually released. I rode it yesterday. It was pretty spectacular. Slightly less pedal/suspension feedback in granny, even with propedal off. The gear issue I had on the stand disappeared on trail. No rub in the granny, no front der/seat tube interference. The seat tube is shorter though so I have to get a new seat post. Mine was at max extension on the old frame so I was too low on this one.
    Hopefully it will be worth the wait for you.

    Beautiful. I love my Tallboy Aluminum as well, so I have to know: can you tell a huge differance between the two bikes? Is it like riding a completely different bike or does it just feel like a nice upgrade? How do you like the nobby nic as a rear tire? Does it roll well? I run a 2.35 up front and love it.
    Thanks!

    Thanks Venturawest. I've only had it once out on the trails (with another wheelset) and it feels like a nice upgrade. 3 pounds lighter than the AL (2 on the frame and 1 for the wheelset). The Nobby Nics are brand new, so no feedback yet. Coming from a set of Stans FlowEX with Hope hubs, the 350's are almost silent.

    Contra1970, can we get a parts breakdown? Looks great! It's incredibly close to my TB build, including the polished XTR cranks. What travel fork?

    Cheers,

    Not really am maybe a small bit, mainly trail. This setup is perfect for my riding in this area as we don't really have any big hills or mountains although I have done Wales on this setup with my Superlight and climbed all the mountains no problem on all day rides. Largest climb around here for 200K is only 200 meters high and I only race for fun sometimes. Don't need any more than 100mm travel around here because its so flat but as I do go to some trail centres I prefer the 120mm travel on the front and I hate front derailleurs.

    Loving riding it more and more each day, had a 45k ride on Monday night and it was so much better than my old superlight 26.

    I'm a newbie to this forum. I have a Superlight currently and my girlfriend has a Tallboy 1 Aluminum with an RXC kit and a 120mm travel front fork. I find I am "borrowing" hers to go riding more and more as I love how the 29er floats over things, grips in the mud, on hills and is extremely stable. I also feel way less beat up after riding it. I'm considering purchasing the Tallboy 2 in a carbon. I don't do drops larger than 2 feet and the riding I do is single track with a lot of ups and downs which I enjoy both of. The area I am in has a lot of roots and mud. I am close to the Canadian rockies, however not super interested in downhill. I'm not a daredevil and prefer mountain biking more for the fitness aspect. I usually can only get out for a couple hours a day as I have young kids but I do go very hard. I enjoy the lightness of the Superlight I have. Anyway, is the carbon Tallboy much snappier and fun than the aluminum version? Should I consider the LT or a 650b instead? Is the Tallboy more a XC/Trail bike than a pure XC bike? Thoughts?

    The TB with a 120mm fork makes a great XC/trail bike, especially compared to something like a Specialized Epic which is much more XC race focused. You can build it with weight-weenie parts and a 100mm fork for more of an XC focus, or you could do a stouter build with a dropper post for a more trail-focused bike. It can handle your 2-foot drops just fine.

    The carbon version is lighter and stiffer than the alloy version, but I wouldn't say it rides whole lot differently.

    I thought that you could only fit a 28 front chain ring on the XX1 crank?

    26 tooth will fit but sram doesn't make one that small. The 26 works just fine and I have never dropped a chain even without using a clutch type derailur.

    They are Chinese rims of the 30mm wide variety, handbuilt on Hope hubs with a mix of spokes by my wheels man Zoran. World of difference to the Crests I was running previously.

    2013 Tallboy Carbon X-Large with Shimano XT. Carbon bars and seatpost. Saved over $1,000 by getting the old model. My first new bike in over 10 years. I'm happy with it.

    Nice! Where'd you get the stickers for your Pike?
    Can you show pictures of your gripshift set up for your dropper? I can't imagine!

    FYI, there is another thread for the TBLT, here:

    Got the custom decals for the Pike and the Ryde rims from Slik:Slik Graphics

    Gripshift operated dropper is quite simple: I removed the ratcheting spring from the left 'front' Gripshifter (not really necessary, but operates smoother) and connected the other end of the cable at the dropper, of course this only works with cable actuated dropper posts (like the Specialized Command Post). Just 'shift' the Gripshifter to actuate the dropper and release once it is in the desired position.

    That's pretty cool. I was wondering if you somehow were using that along with a front derailleur shifter, (which would be quite a trick), but I see you have 1X up front.

    Got my ltc about a month ago and it's just so damn sick - loving it. The seatpost I originally ordered wasn't available at the time, but I finally got it and installed it last night, so she is now compleeeeete! (p.s. anyone need a Lev DX?) Gave her a nice cleaning while I was at it so it's like she's brand new again. Here she is, posing with my other favorite inanimate object...

    highlights:
    Pike 140
    Industry 9 Trail 32
    XX1 (28 tooth)
    gripshift, biyotches!!
    XTR brakes

    With all that you want to upgrade, did you talk to the dealer about customizing up front? It usually works out cheaper that way.

    Are you going to add a dropper?

    They gave me 15% off accessories, but as you know you don't get anything for "trade in value" and I'm also working on some upgrades for my BearGrease, so it's based upon priority.

    As far as a dropper, I had the new Thomson Covert dropper, but neither the shop (or I) could get it function properly, so it went back. No biggie, I've been riding without a dropper for a billion years, a couple more months won't matter.

    New tallboy build

    This bike is amazing...the only debate i have is whether or not to bump up to the 120mm fork...currently riding my old reba xx 100mm with no taper or thru axle so i am losing out on stiffness up front.

    It's truly so amazing it made you finally post after six years!

    And soon to be 20mm even more amazing.

    Have fun! Looks terrific. Every now and then I try my SLR again.

    Cool bike man. What year is that frame? Have you thought about a dropper? How tall are you?
    Just so you know, there is a separate thread for TBLTs here:

    One picture, one line. No whining. Something about YOUR last ride. [o]

    I believe it is a 2013 frame based on the fact it does not have the internal seat post routing, but I got it new from a bike shop(I traded my 2014 Specialized Epic Expert WC which I rode for a year for it). I will get a KS Lev TI for it (I like the all blacked out look) but the cost of admission is a little steep for now. My experience with the Rockshox Reverb (1st version) and both the Command post and Command post IR has been less than stellar, and I have ridden 18 years without a dropper (2 years with) so I have riding experience without one. Here in Colorado they do come in handy, but they are a headache. Have you heard anything good or bad about the KS I should be aware of? BTW I am 6 ft tall, why do you ask?

    I've heard a lot of good things about the KS Lev. One of the top posts out there right now.


    BTW I am 6 ft tall, why do you ask?
    I was curious what size guy would fit on a large with a 90 mm stem. I was guessing you were taller, but now that I think about it, the TBLT is not as long as some other bikes these days, so it sounds about right. I was between a medium and a large. I'm 5'9" with long torso and short legs. I was hoping to use a 60 mm stem, but the medium feels a bit short so I upped the stem to a 75. The Large has a nice long front, but standover and wheelbase felt better on the medium.

    TB Upgrade

    Took advantage of the sales and upgraded my frame from a TBc L to TB2c XL. (At 6' 1" the L felt small especially when off the saddle. XL is definitely a much better fit.)

    Thanks. Need to wash the frame and regrease the pivots and then it's going up for sale. Have a large 2012 Highball C SPX build kit that might be going too. One too many bikes and not enough time to ride them all as much as I would like to.

    Anyone got pictures of a blue Tallboy (LTc) with orange (mango) anodized parts? Please post.

    Question on behalf of a friend: anyone got a yellow Tallboy LTc frame (size Large) for sale?
