    Check the PSI on rear shock. To low or high (proper sag) can cause rub on VPP system.

    Just joined the TBLTc family. XXL ordered for an January delivery.

    Thanks to Kzrocky and Max_Croft for the info on the LBS, much appreciated guys.

    There must be a bit of pent up demand for the XXL as the oz allocation is almost sold out.

    Monarch RT3 2013 tune

    Hello there,
    I had great success on my Nomad C with a Monarch Plus RC3 Medium rebound Low compression tune (M/L).
    I have a new Tallboy LTc with the old FOX RP23 BV HV adaptative logic. I'd like to go to the Monarch RT3, the improved 2013 model. But for the tuning shall I go M/M this time (135mm wheel travel on a 50mm travel shock) ? -not sure as I can reduce compression speed with the 3 position lever-
    I'll only be able to by the high volume one, shall I put the rubber band kit to reduce the air volume ? -I gess yes, give it a try-
    Have a good ride !
    Laurent

    I have the rubber band kit and would not recommend it. I can only get max 3 bands on and the can is a ***** to get on, have not been able to get 4 on. I would probably use electrical tape to take up volume unless someone else has a better idea.

    I wish it was easy...tried slick butter and shock oil, TIGHT squeeze. Regardless I think the tape would harmless, effective, and free.

    Hi did not want to start a new thread to get answer to this simple question. Want to upgrade post on my Tallboy LT to Thomson setback either elite or masterpiece and was worried that the 29 degree tilt angle is not enough given the LT sweeping seatpost angle. So those that have the post do you find you have enough angle to lower the nose of the saddle. Obviously person preference aside but I am just talking a few degrees lower than flat.
    Thanks

    Well actually Strava can and does lie but that's another thread The LTc is definitely a terrain devourer on the downhills. I jumped my positions from the 75 percentile to the 10 percentile on most segments with a handful of KOMs and top 5 positions as well; and that is in a very competitive cycling area (Boulder).

    As for uphills, yeah I'm really not that much quicker but that is probably me. Overall I have probably increased my average speed by about 2-3 mph. What I did find is that climbing may not be that much quicker (I just don't have the aerobic strength) but I can pedal for longer and feel less fatiqued so my overal speed is quicker as I stop less.

    tbltc

    I decided to see what all the 29 hype was about. Never having ridden a 29" bike, I ordered the Tallboy ltc. Having raced DH and 4x/slalom on V10/blur trc I thought I would feel right at home on the Tallboy, well, except for the 29er part. The bike built up at only 25 pounds, which pleasantly surprised me. I have three rides on it and am so stoked. Of course I am impressed with the rock eating capability. I can't believe the way it rips corners (so much traction). Manuals, not so impressive. Road gaps, no problem. Super steep hills are a bit sluggish. Climbing traction is a bonus. Overall, I am a believer.

    I am having so much fun on this bike! Also loving the switch to flat pedals. I am trying to figure out my best rain set-up. Any suggestions on possible mud guards? Ran over a landmine on the trail and am reconsidering the mud in my face look.

    Ouch

    Ouch, at this rate, I don't see the rear triangle lasting long. Mostly paint, but a little carbon damage... for now. Where do I get one of those pivot protectors?

    +1 on the Cytoe protectors. Had one on my TBa and now on my TB LTc. Took my LTc on her maiden voyage and am glad I waited till I received the protector.

    Hey Guys -

    Recently purchased an alu TB with the 100mm fork, after couple of test rides and factoring the riding style I was bottoming out the fork. So I did an exchange and ordered a TB LT. It should be in my hands in about a week.

    TB is an awesome bike and love the geo of it!!
    Makes me feel like I was 10 again on my 1st roller coaster ride!! All I can say is its a BLAST to ride!!

    I had exactly the same damage inflicted on my first hard ride. Could be a design flaw. I bought from Cytoe and am very happy (he even mailed to the UK without issue).
