    Tallboy LT and LTc Owners Thread

    Last Wednesday I placed an order for a Tallboy LT, SPXAM kit with custom paint (satin black/red blockface graphics) and the estimated 3 week wait is KILLING ME. Literally.

    Anyhow what did the rest of you order and how long is your estimated wait until arrival?

    Any planned immediate mods?

    I ordered a Tallboy LTc, size L, black/orange... 2 weeks ago. Delivery time between mid of May and of of june . No kit for the moment. Will probably go with a full XTR group and brakes, Revelation 140mm DA, ZTR wheels, Reverb, Crank Brothers Iodine or Cobalt Carbon handlebar... nearly the same as my Blur TRc bike

    Good thread! Hopefully this will be the picture thread once the bikes are coming through?

    I ordered my matt carbon/orange LTc on April 2nd with a delivery estimated to be end of May.

    I haven't decided if I'm going to swap the XTR, bars, stem, reverb etc off my Nickel or go for a complete new build but I'm planning on using Float 140's, Mavic TN718 rims with Hope hubs and possibly a 1x10 setup.

    Deposit down on a black/orange with Fox 34. Should be here for the end of May. (Scotland)

    Most kit transferred from my current bike - reverb, flow/pro2, Salsa bars, SLX 36/22, XT 10 speed but I may gt a new XTR Plus mech.

    Can. Not. Wait.

    I don't understand . . . . all three of you make it sound as if you ordered just the frame, yet I didn't think that was possible yet . . . confused.

    Or are you just getting a kit and selling off parts?

    As far as I was/am aware it's possible, seeing as I've put money down on the first batch of frames to enter the UK, maybe my dealer is being a bit over zealous though?!

    People ordered the frame, myself included, when they first announced it. They were saying they would be out early May. It even said so on their website.

    Then, as I'm sure you'll recall, they suddenly said only the full bikes were coming out and due to huge demand frame-only would be coming months later.

    So there are people who have ordered the frame, just waitin... and waitin... and waitin... for it to come out eventually. Myself included

    My lbs has ordered a full bike and done me a deal on the frame, frok, headset and reverb. The rest is going onto another customers 'normal' Tallboy frame with some 120mm forks.

    Bonking ... not feelin' well

    Its been about two weeks for me and I'm waiting on a regular carbon Tallboy. I made the order two day before the "april fools" thing was announced. My bike still is not in yet. Santa Cruz says they are backed up on all the Tallboys, high demand!

    However, even though I ordered the SPX kit I'm considering the LTc now. I'll have to put it up for sale for what I paid for it. I say that because I'm sure the local shop would not be happy with it sitting around his shop. I must admit I haven't discussed it with him though, he just might help me out. I'm kinda unsure what to do? Should I keep this regular blk red Tallboy or get the LTc. What do you all think? Don't you hate sometimes when new stuff comes out. Ahh what to do...

    Is there a way to keep track of the status of the order? Can you just call or email S/C and have them give you an update on the estimated delivery date? Or do people just bug the LBS. I have never been the early adopter type, its an unusual process, and dosn't work well with my inner 5-year old who demands toys now.

    To Rev.14, if your bike has still not been built or delivered could you not just cancel the tallboy lt order and switch it to a ltc?

    Order status needs to be made through your dealer.

    I bought my Tallboy carbon w/ SPX kit on 3/29/12, just a few days before the announcement of the LTc. But, I fully knew they were going to release the LTc and didn't want a longer travel bike.

    I say consider what type of trails you ride. Longer travel doesn't always mean better. Additionally, the LTcs are coming in around 3/4 lb heavier with similar SPX build (actually over 1 lb heavier than the regular Tallboy carbon if you go with the 34 float 140 fork on the LTc).

    With all that said, if you really need the longer travel LTc, you should get it. Nothing is worse than spending $4K - $5K+ on something that is not exactly what you are looking for. You should check w/ your dealer and see if they will allow you to exchange. I know mine wouldn't have any issues doing the exchange. They move a TON of Santa Cruz bikes and could quickly sell mine to another buyer if I didn't want it.

    Ordered my medium Black Tallboy LT yesterday. Was quoted three weeks from Santa Cruz. Plan to put the new Crank Brothers drop post and some custom wheels to start.

    Well, I just Demo'd the TB-LT up here at Sea Otter . . . lets just get it out of the way, but I was blown away by this bike. It is simply put, quite fantastic. I currently ride a Blur LT and this was my first ride on a 29er, and I had to remind myself that I was indeed on a 29er. This thing flies and it rails turns. Although the demo run was short (probably less than 5 miles, but at least it was single track) and didn't include any tech or chunk, the route was fast and flowed well, and the TB-LT handled it with ease. It did not at all feel like I was riding a 29er and was VERY comparable to my BLT2 in terms of handling.

    I know what my next bike will be. No doubt about that.

    Did I miss something but has anyone notice the price on all the TB carbons seem to have increased? I purchased a TBc SPX and it seems to be the MSRP went up from what it was when I placed my order. Still considering an LTc too before mine arrives, the question is can I wait until next month for it to come in?

    What do we have here?

    For the record, it ain't mine and no I didn't steal it. It's one of the early prototype test bikes. Had an opportunity to ride it for a few minutes.

    Yes, actually I did notice that. At the booth, the prices on (some of) the tags were scratched out and written over at Sea Otter, so whatever its due to, it happened really recently.

    Frames!!!

    I almost pulled the trigger on one, but I've decided to wait for the framesets. I want to build up a 2x10 setup with I9's and stans rims, so now it's killing me. how long will I have to wait? Come on SC, I want a frame, badly,

    So, how was it? It would be nice to hear some non-media reviews.

    Don't know how true this is but what I've heard from my LBS is the price of carbon they use has gone up and so goes the price...

    Indeed, this is his bike.

    As for a review, well i rode it around the parking lot and not on any trails so I can't say but it felt like it'd be a super fun bike to rip on

    Has anyone else noticed that the TB LT & TB TLc package deal prices aren't consistent?

    TB LT with Ram29 kit is $3199, frame only is $1999 so build kit cost is $1200.
    TB LTc with Ram29 kit is $4399, frame only is $2699 so build kit cost is $1700.

    $500 difference in build kit cost.

    TB LT with SPXam29 kit is $4299, frame only is $1999 so build kit cost is $2300.
    TB LTc with SPXam29 kit is $5299, frame only is $2699 so build kit cost is $2600.

    $300 difference in build kit cost.

    Ref:
    Santa Cruz Bicycles
    Santa Cruz Bicycles

    I know the rear hub required is different between the 2 frames (135 vs. 142) but I can't see where the $300-500 difference is.

    pricing

    Noticed that earlier today as well.

    Also-
    If you do the LT-A SPX kit in bike builder with the Revelation 29 RCT3 it shows up correctly at $4299. If you add custom paint it goes up to $4899 not the 600 dollar jump not the 300 the CCCP is supposed to cost.

    Chalking up to website error at this point, still waiting on my LT-A with CCCP, confident the LBS will go to bat for me on the price listed on the website when I placed the order $4599, any more expensive and I'd order the carbon.

    I ordered a Large LTc on April 2 from my lbs. Like others we were told we had to buy a complete bike. My man at the shop is selling me the frame and fox 34 fork, and is using the rest of the kit for another bike he's building. He said mid to late May.

    I ordered mine in matte black and orange, but have to say the yellow is growing on me. Not ready to switch the order, but I definitely dig it.

    The yellow is a great looking bike, but man the White AL with Orange lettering is sweet too. The gunmetal grey on the AL is kinda bland. Didn't see any orange and black carbons though.

    Are those L frames? Seems that every pic of the LT has been a large frame, don't think I've spotted an xl yet... Thanks for the review too, it was great. What I would give to go to sea otter...

    Think TB LT owners should have an official anthem. For now, I propose this:

    The yellow one was definitely a large, and I think the white one was too, just not sure. I demo'd a medium and I ride a medium BlurLT, and the fit was good. They DID have an XL TB-LT available to demo . . . but the line for that was looooong.

    I was told by one of the proto testers that there was only the medium & large frames to test.

    That might explain why the line was so long!

    In all seriousness, when we were there, my buddy asked to demo the XL Tallboy LT and he was told it was available to to sign in for the wait. There were a few other names on the list waiting for the same demo, and at an hour a piece, he opted to run a Nomad instead. So truth be told, never actually SAW the XL frame . . . just told it was available. Kinda seems a bit of a fast turn around to get an XL frame out considering they very recently decided to make one.

    I thought there was always an XL planned, it is the XXL frame that they are now planning to make.

    I think I saw it briefly, but there were like 2 people ahead of me waiting for an XL. Nomad turned out to be a good ride though

    Oh, maybe that's what I was thinking . . . I stand corrected!

    $500 difference in build kit cost.

    TB LT with SPXam29 kit is $4299, frame only is $1999 so build kit cost is $2300.
    TB LTc with SPXam29 kit is $5299, frame only is $2699 so build kit cost is $2600.

    $300 difference in build kit cost.

    I know the rear hub required is different between the 2 frames (135 vs. 142) but I can't see where the $300-500 difference is.

    Sure did notice this. Also noticed that all their carbon prices went up across the board even on the regular TBc. I've been hearing different stories about why but not sure. I do know that SC has nailed the 29er FS so well in carbon that the wait is over a month on them. Could be demand is so high and the way they build their frames in one piece, not like the other companies, probably takes time. IDK, just my 2 cents...

    the pricing on the package deal completes when using the CCCP builder had a code glitch, and was tacking an extra $300 onto everything. sorry about that. should be fixed now and showing the correct pricing for everything. good catch thanks to fine forum folk!

    as for the carbon prices, EVERYTHING is getting more expensive at the vendor end of things. raw materials are costing more, labor costs are skyrocketing, energy costs likewise. you might notice that several other bike brands also went through some re-pricing, due to the same factors. it's not confined to the bike industry either. global economics at work. sorry about that as well, but it's not nearly as easy to remedy as a code glitch on our bike builder.
    hold my beer...

    - If that was Sat. you may have been behind me. Ha!

    I rode the XL with XTR Triple, 34 and Reverb down trail 50 at Ft. Ord. It used to be the opening single track (conga line) for the XC Course. Some fireroad climbing to get to the trail followed by flowy ribbons of mixed dirt/sand singletrack with a couple of sharp turns mixed in with fast approaches. Did I say FAST? NO techy bit's to report on because my local BLM has F'd (don't get me started on this) the fun trails up.

    The bike. It pretty much sucked. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Kidding!

    LOVED the new shock & fork tech from Fox. REALLY nice. The new ProPedal features actually have distinctly different feels to them in a very good way. Geometry felt great to me, well refined and different from my Tallboy. Of course right?

    I did unfortunately have to climb back to Laguna Seca via Barloy Canyon Rd. (Otter road race finishing climb) due to the XC race coming down the singletrack that I wanted to climb back to the track on. I sat and spun the big-ring up all but the last 200m without noticing extra weight or susp. movement. Really impressive.

    Upon returning I joked with the fine folks running the demo (great job guy's & gal's!!) about the bike being a gamechanger which IMO was a pretty BIG challenge because the Tallboy is still a rippin' bike. - Everyone smiled and then I said there was one HUGE problem with the bike. I don't want mine at the end of May. I want it now.

    This one like all the other SCB's I've owned over all the years will be WELL worth the wait people. I'll enjoy waiting "on Santa Cruz time" with the rest of you....
