    Still playing around with the spacers - as you can see I have it in the middle

    Like the one here in the middle:



    If you want to get your bars up a little higher, try an additional spacer or a higher rise bar.

    Shimano XTR Shadow GS rear derailleur
    Shimano XT front derailleur
    Shimano XTR chain
    Shimano XT 11/32 cassette
    Shimano XTR crankset 172.5mm, 22/32/BG
    Stans Arch/Hope Pro II wheels
    Continental Race King 2.2 tires w/Stan's sealant
    Sorry but I am struggling to see how your bike weighs anywhere near that weight.
    We weighed the L size demo with XT buildkit and not light wheels on the weekend and it weighed about that (without pedals).
    Full XTR build like yours should be considerably lighter.
    My large Jet9 with SRAM X9 build weighed about 26.5lb

    I am pretty confident that it is accurate. It was weighed on the same scale showing the sub-5lb frame/shock weight in an earlier post. My bars aren't superlight and the pedals aren't either when compared to something like a ti Eggbeater. One thing I'm not 100% sure on is the wheels. They are loaners and I haven't looked closely to see if they are Competition, Supercomp, or Revolution spokes. They do have alloy nipples. I also don't know how much sealant is in the tires - for all I know there are 3 scoops in each tire.

    I have those exact same hubs and rims. From memory they are around 1800g built up with Comp spokes.
    If the pedals are Atacs they are not light but they are not stupidly heavy either.
    I run XTR pedals which fall into the same boat.
    There would be grams to be saved on the pedals, bar and grips but surely not over 2lb.

    Hey - who is that directed at? Do I need to post a picture on the scale?

    Maybe you are just using heavy stuff on your build. Wheels, cassette, bars, grips, brakes... we could get that beast down to 24 in no time.

    Not directed at anyone in particular. I do know what a sub-24lb Tallboy looks like though and it has some pretty exotic kit on it. As for mine, I am more than happy with the weight. Heck, it's going to gain a little when my wheels are done. I built it to handle the way I ride and I am confident in the parts spec. Plus, it's about 5lbs lighter than my trail bike from last year

    Go away and sober up before posting again.
    I, and probably others, have NFI what you are trying to say with your rambling posts.

    And obviously you are not an expert speller or spell check user.

    I am kinda of shocked at the weights of your bikes actually, like I said I had my sj down to 24 and half pounds and I know the frame is like 7 pounds. I will have mine built soon I will post the weight. I don't have any "exotic" parts either. Interesting, maybe my sub23 pound bike was a pipe dream! haha
    Your big wheels are so awesome!

    1.) Dogboy's sweet new frame arrives.

    2.) Dogboy posts picture of frame on scale. No one balks.

    3.) Dogboy posts sweet new frame built, along with specs, and total weight*

    4.) Weight weenies balk at Dogboy's stated weight, but do not balk at any other claimed weight from other builds in same thread.

    5.) Cognitive bias.

    6.) WGAF. Nice bike Dogboy. I am sure it's a blast to ride.



    * I find it interesting Dogboy posts a picture of his sweet new frame hanging on a scale. No one argues the weight. I little deductive reasoning should indicate the same scale was used for Dogboy's complete weight claim. The complete weight claim should be as valid as the frame-only claim. No?

    A little deductive reasoning would indicate that there are many other builds here and elsewhere that are purporting to be lighter than Dogboy's and enquiring minds would then question why Dogboy's awesome bike is so comparitively heavy.

    Illogical. No other photo shows a scale. No deduction can be made to validate their claims.

    Purporting is the key word here. I am seriously not trying to start anything, but I think my posted weight is accurate. As I said, I have some "not so light" parts mixed in with my "pretty light, but not exotic ti/carbon" parts. Mine is not a spreadsheet weight, but an actual weight that when compared with my other bikes weighed on the same scale seems legit.

    So - still not sure I understand why people can't understand the relative weights of different builds. Dogboy has a really solid build, and the weight seems perfectly reasonable to me given XT disk brakes, XT cassette, 1800g wheels, etc. It's not at all hard to see how there are much lighter builds. 2lbs lighter would be super easy if that's where he wanted to go. There are some high end builds here, and add XX, light tires (like the 500g aspens) and crank bros 4ti pedals - you could see some crazy light stuff. Bottom line is this is an amazing 29er frame that shocks me how light you can build it without doing dumb stuff.
    Here is verification of the weight on my XTR build XXL frame.

    - He does have XT: Brakes, Cassette & Frt. Der., Heavy Bar/Stem and THREE scoops of Stans in each tire.

    I'd believe that build weight. Heck, my XL, Taper Float 120, I9's w/arches, Easton carbon bar/EA90 stem, FULL XTR except for Elixr CR's w/ XX 185 rotors, Spec. S-Works Purgatory 2.2's 1 scoop Stans each, KS i950r seatpost and Spec. Ti railed seat weighs 26 on the nose.

    When I swap to an EC90 seatpost I will drop a full POUND.

    Look, I agree that the Tallboy is a fantastic bike and was certainly not having a go at anyone here.
    I simply wondered whether Dogboy had made an error with his calculation was all.
    I would be happy to have any of the builds that I have seen here and am waiting patiently (not) for mine to arrive this week.
    Hopefully I will have a built up Tallboy to show you within the next couple of weeks.

    I will make sure I picture it hanging from a scale.

    Cheers all.

    OK just got my frame I weight it 4 times cause I actually had a hard time thinking it was right it registered at 4.4 pounds. Its a medium frame but damn that is light and its half a pound lighter then the 5 pound mark wich I would of been very happy with, but 4.4 is plain stupid light. Its lighter then most ss frames I have had. Bad pic sorry.

    I think your scale is off. My large black was 5.26 and a large orange was 5.39 lbs. I highly doubt that there is that much of a difference in weight between the M & L frames.

    Yeah, you can use that or any other grease. I think I used the Park grease.

    Just Completed Tall Boy Build

    Turned out great. Ran rear der. shift cable underneath top tube and added a couple of self-adhesive cable guides to tuck Nokon's neatly in place.

    Actually got into upper 30's (F) around here, rode around neighborhood for a couple hours. Felt much more nimble and responsive as compared to my 2008 Specialized 29 FSR.

    Can't wait to get it out on the trails.

    LBS scale showed a little over 25 lbs., no claim for any verified scale calibration, does agree with my running spreadsheet component weight summation.

    Components:
    2010 Santa Cruz Tallboy - Matte - Medium: rear shock Fox RP23
    Fork: Rockshox Reba Team 29er Fork tapered
    Crankset-FSA K-Force XC MegaExo - ceramic BB
    Brakes: Hope Tech X2 - Front & Rear - 160mm disc
    Chris King NoThreadset 1 1/8" - 1 1/2"
    Thomson Elite X4 Mtb Stem - SM-E140-110mm, 10 deg.
    FSA Headset Spacers 1 1/8"
    Cassette SRAM PG990 11-34
    SRAM PC991 Hollow Pin Chain 9 sp
    Seatpost: Thomson Elite-setback 30.9/410mm
    Thomson 35.0 Seatclamp Black

    Finished my build

    Here is mine finished comes in at 23.8 pounds for a FS 29er its like cheating I took it out today for the first time I ran into a guy that usually brings the pain first time I ever dropped him!!! hahaha The fact that I can peddle through corners is awesome with the stumpy it was a guarantee that I would stick a crank on the ground. The ride on the tallboy is very unique the bike feels better the faster I went, very lively feel to it. The Tallboy really has fixed most of the 29er disadvantages I think Rob Roskopp is going to be way richer with this bike under his belt!!!

    Your big wheels are so awesome!

    Here is my Tallboy configured for endurance mode (26.5lbs). The King hubs and Arch wheel are a little on the heavy side – might get a set of AC (for race mode) and drop a pound. This bike feels great with a stiff, nimble and plush ride. The frame with headset weighed in at 5.7lbs. A big thanks to Steve at Bike Man

    Any tire recommendations? I am running the racing ralphs front and rear and the tires seem not to grip very well with this build. Perhaps I need to run the PSI lower but I run them low as it is. I ride sandy and loose terrain.

    - My new favorite is the Specialized S-Works Purgatory 2Bliss 2.2
    They're a little heavier than the RR's at 675ish but have a pretty full knob and grip well in all conditions I've tried them in so far.....

    How do people like the Conti Race King's? I am considering those or the Saguro's for my new Tallboy.

    I have always liked the Crossmark rear, Ignitor front as race tyres and will continue to run this option.
    I also have a set of Racing Ralphs to try out for this purpose.

    For general trail riding I like Ardent rear and either a Rampage or Weirwolf up front.

    The racing ralphs gripped better for me on the heavier bike feel too loose on the Tallboy on loose conditions. I changed the back tire to an s-works the Captain that I already had see if that helps.

    Here's an updated pic of mine with my wheels (Stan's Flow rims on I9 hubs). Ended up just over 26lbs. Very happy with it so far.

    EL fox

    Dude EL fox!!! Problem is getting it, I would try calling Speedgoat and asking about the fox just say you don't see it on their site. They will say something like we don't sell those and then they will say something like I might have one I can sell you. etc...

    Can't go wrong with the ignitors for an all around great tire. I'm trying out the captains, but have a sneaking suspicion that I may be back on ignitors this year, after trying out mountain kings and racing ralph last year.

    Tires

    I have the Racing Ralp on the front and the Captain in the back I really like the Combo, It's not a death grip on corners but not at all bad with the ralph on the back was not fun but the tire was worn a bit too.
    Your big wheels are so awesome!

    It is here!!!!!
    Been talking options over with Shannon from Blacksheep Imports over here in Australia for quite some time now.
    We could not find a dually that we were 100% happy with from his range but he was fantastic in investigating what could be done to get us on the Santa Cruz Tallboys.
    Test rode one a couple of weeks ago and was extremely impressed with how it rode. Another of those bikes where it just tempts you to ride it harder.
    Many many thanks to Blacksheep Imports and Santa Cruz Australia.

    Looking for a good deal on 2 black tapered steerer forks (100 - 120mm convertable)
    Anyone able to give me a lead on where I can get them for a good price??
    I have not had much luck sourcing them within Australia.
    I can get the Fox with a 15mm QR but we want standard QR for compatibility of wheelsets across both my bikes.

    Definitely need to be black.
    Dont tell me I should go to 15mm, I am not interested at all.

    speedgoat.com is the only place you might be able to get the fork, but you will only be able to get it in 15mm more then likely and you have to call them they don't sell it on their site. They will have to make you a shopping cart etc. That is how I got mine, I had to go to 15mm but I have hope hubs super easy to convert. Good luck.

    Will contact them but 15mm is NOT an option.
    I have 2 bikes and need the wheels to be compatible between them in case of mechanical issues.
    I have Hope hubs too so know how easy it is to convert but this would mean a new fork for the 2nd bike which is not a cost I want.
    Mucking around swapping end caps in the middle of a race would not be ideal either.

    Coming along.
    No rush seeing as though I have to source the taper steerer fork.
    I have a lead on some Fox F29's but just waiting on some responses from some other shops to see if they can offer any cheaper.
    Just installed the rigid fork so that I can get on with sorting out cockpit setup in the meantime.
