    I'm 5ft 10. I use a large TB LTc. I went for a fitment recently and my line up was way out I've had to move my saddle Max forward on a zero post. Secondly I went from the 70mm stem to a 90mm. What a huge difference. Climbing is a lot easier. Now I also feel equal stress in both legs. I don't think I would of fit on a medium. Really happy with the large

    Whats the thoughts on the M9020 XTR on its way? Will the new style front detailed work on the TB LTc?

    I'm 5'11" and I could only test a large LT and a medium Tallboy. The moment I sat on the medium tallboy I felt cramped, the large LT had a better feel. Only problem was back then the guy who did my bike setup was a hardcore XC rider so my fork was cut maybe half an inch lower than I would've liked. Lots of pressure on my hands on longer rides, but yeah, test them both, for me you will know within a few pedal strokes whether or not the bike is too small or big.

    What's the logic with moving everything forward like that?

    Its the relationship beween the knee and the pedal when the crank is horizontal. Mine was to short so my saddle went fwd. I did a specialized BG fitment. Well worth it. What a difference.

    Just curious -- What caused you to pull apart and discover that? Was it just routine maintenance or was there crazy flex/squeaking?

    Well our trails have just dried up so I guess spring maintenance. It must of happened last year. But I don't remember excecive flex or anything. The side with the collet was still locked in place so just a slight amount of wear on the thread side.

    I think my TBLTc is just about finished up for now. I think it looked a hell of a lot better with my white Sun Ringlé Charger Pros, but I'll take performance over looks in this case.

    I started with RAM kit in the fall, and the long winter gave me a lot of time to pile up brown boxes with goodies.

    I love this bike. But, we have a newborn, and riding time is perilously limited.

    I've just ordered a Easton EC70 wide flat bar..... 720 I think looking forward to trying that out... new wheel's 2. Easton EA90 XC that hub is a nightmare I've send them back on warranty waiting for there return.. So I'm leaning heavily towards mavic crossmax ST. The hope pro 2 hubs have had some good reviews.

    The EC 70 came on my bike. The shop set it up with The sweep pointed more up than back. I thought that was dumb and changed it, but now I'm thinking it might have felt better that way so I might change it back.

    I've been putting alot of miles on my LTc over the last couple months. I have the 150 pike and CC DBA cs. There is a pic a couple pages back. I took it to Moab a week ago and rode down Kokopelis. awsome trail conditions right now!

    What I've noticed on these upgrades is how forgiving the bike is. I have launched off of some unseen ledges, 2'-3', and thought in the air-this is gonna hurt! Then I ride it out. I think it has to do with the seemingly "bottomless" feel of both shocks. they don't bottom out and send me flying. They pretty much take the hit and keep moving!

    I posted my settings a couple pages back also, I don't remember them right now.

    I think this green strip down the back of the seat tube might be a bit too obnoxious for me. What would be a good way to cover it up, like with some black or gray or carbon looking tape?

    What size stem are you using and is that a medium frame.

    It's a medium frame with 60mm stem flipped down. I'm 5'9 but with a long torso, and still playing with fit. I think I want a little more reach and the bars a little higher, so my next plan is to flip the stem back up, and raise it with some spacers, and rotate the bar so the sweep is partially up. I could also move the seat back a bit, since its at the middle of the rails right now. that will probably give me the bit of extra reach I want, but if not, I have a 75mm stem laying around I could try as well.

    Do you have a specific product name or number? Did you actually wrap your bike, or just lay down a strip? Got any pictures?

    Here's a picture when I picked it up at the shop. You can see the stem was higher and the bars are swept upwards.

    Having done both the 3M and Framskins- I'd suggest Frameskins.

    Yes more expensive, but it's laser cut and fits perfectly. Saves a ton of time.

    That's pretty cool. You linked to the Tallboy 2 however. Here's the link to the TBLTc

    Santa Cruz Tallboy LTc - Frameskin

    So the stickers have the graphics printed on them? It looks like they have the sticker set for last years colors, which is pretty cool, since I like the orange better than the green, but the stickers were in different places last year, and I don't think they provide a sticker for the back of the seat tube.

    How'd your bike come out?

    After more research, I think the frameskin stuff is transparent, and wouldn't work to cover up a color.

    There is this company called Vidiom that is doing some cool replacement graphics stuff. The stickers go right over your old graphics I guess. This blacked out Bronson looks awesome:

    Yeh...I see the bar angle. 1st glance bit like a riser. . Im 5.10 with large. Ive had to bang my seat max forward ive gone 90 on the stem. Climbing is now so much easier. If you get a chance a good fitment is worth it. Saves a lot of testing expenses. I also needed a wider saddle. Nice bike pics!

    I put my trusty Specialized saddle on. I think it's called an Avatar and it's the widest version. It weighs 355 vs the 235 for the WTB saddle it came with. A quarter pound gained, but my booty is worth it!

    This was today. I switched my stem from 60 to 75, and it seems to be about right. Also rotated my bars so the sweep goes a little upward again. Felt good.
    Did some good climbing today and got plenty of use out of my 26x42 granny.

    I also realized that my Reverb post is about a half inch too long even with the lower part of the post completely down into the seat tube.

    I wonder if there is a way to put in a spacer to reduce the amount of post exposed at full extension?
