    Hello!

    I don't know the BB30 from E13 but I think it will work. I ride the Rotor BSA30 on my bike and the First presented above will also be an option.

    To mount the Hollowgram on a BSA30 BB, you'll need a special 132mm spindle without Edge: Cannondale BB30 Spindle 132mm Alloy | eBay

    I am liking them so far. They offer about an inch or so of lateral adjustment. In the pictures they are adjusted to the outside of the bike as far as they can go.

    Good to know... Not sure I want to spend $50 on them, but if I can get a deal I may change over to them. The single clamp is much nicer looking than the double.

    They applied some type of finish over the raw. I thought it was going to be like a painted clear, but it's not. It's the same finish as MrPretty's, but it looks much better in person. I'm really happy with it.

    kidd,
    I take it you're running 1x10 with the big ring as a bash guard? I don't see any front derailleur...

    Got a really good deal on eBay. For the crank set and ceramic bb. I'll never use the big ring. Unless I put some time in on the trainer.

    I've had mine for about a year and a half now, and still like it a lot. It just does everything well from racing to technical trail riding For racing or smooth trails I set the suspension stiffer and use a lighter set of wheels/tires.

    This was a stock SPX kit with RP23 kashima. I've done the following upgrades:

    Frameskins frame protection
    Cytoe bashguard
    Specialized Purgatory Control 2.3 tires
    XTR Trail pedals
    X0 crankset, 22/33/bash
    Homebrewed components bashguard
    XT Shadow-plus mid-cage rear derailleur
    XT double front derailleur
    DT Swiss 36T star ratchet upgrade
    DT Swiss RWS 10mm thru-axle
    Easton EC70 XC Wide flat handlebars
    ESI Chunky grips

    I picked up a 2012 XXL Tallboy C for an amazing price before Christmas, and it is finally complete.

    X-9 Drive train
    XT Brakes
    Revelation XX fork with 20mm axle (Replaced the XX damper/lockout with RTC3 damper)
    10mm DT Swiss RWS Skewer
    Flow/Pro2 wheels
    Thomson post
    Answer carbon hi rise bars/70mm stem
    XTR Pedals

    28 pounds on the nose currently with a pair of 2.25 Nobby Nics. Not too bad for an XXL!

    My new Tallboy Al, weird logo and graphics?

    My new sale Tallboy Al frame just arrived. I can't wait to start building it! Has anyone ever seen these graphics on a tallboy or a santa cruz for that matter? The font is differant than any photos I have seen. In fact I have never seen white letters on a black Tallboy. (I like it though.) It is going to look sick with the Fulcrum Red Power XL's I just bought.

    Is this because it is a Tallboy al 1? I know mine has the 135mm rear, but for $900 I am pumped.

    Venturewest, my Tallboy AL also was the black with white letters... I specifically ordered it that way! Here's a shot of it all built up with the same wheels you got. (Sorry, cell phone pic isn't the clearest)



    Notice that, while the color scheme is the same, the lettering for the Santa Cruz is different. I ordered mine the first week of December, also from the sale.

    I also went back through a few, and noticed several differences in fonts on bikes. There's another black AL in post 956 that has the same lower graphics as mine, but the scripted Tallboy near the headtube! Interesting to say the least...

    edit:

    After looking at SC's website, it looks like somebody put the white logo from the Jackal on Venturewest's Tallboy. Also, the scripted Tallboy I saw at the top of the page looks just like the Tallboy logo from the Tallboy carbon. Sounds like SC might be running low on decals and having to mix and match them or something...

    I kind of wondered if they aren't just using up the logos they had, or if there was a chance the painters used the wrong logos. Like I said, I don't mind it at all.

    I was happy to see the Fox CTD was a 2013 model with 2013 brochure. (I don't know if they are differant or better but it makes me feel like I am buying something brand new.

    Have you weighed your Tallboy with the Fulcrums?
