    Tallboy LTC sizing
    Can anyone help with the sizing of the Tallboy LTC . I am have a demo large frame ( the only demo our LBS has ) . I would normally look at a medium or 18 inch frame on most bikes . My current bike is an Ibis Mojo SL medium . The LBS say most people seem to go for a frame size up than they normally use with the Tallboy LTC. I'm 5ft8ins tall
    What are others experience ?::confused

    I'd say your a medium. I'm 5 11 and went with a large. Medium should fit you well

    Medium. The Mojo feels small as it is so I definitely say a medium.

    Defiantly a Med. I am 5'9" and I am running a 60mm stem and am considering going to a 50mm stem. The Medium seems bigger than a normal medium frame would. I even had a medium Carbon Nomad and this top tube length still feel more roomier than the Nomad did. Go with the Medium

    Another vote for med. I'm 5'10" and am considering going from a 70mm stem to a 50mm stem.

    LTc sizing
    Yep, your a medium. I am 5' 11" and the large fits me perfect. At first the cockpit seams short but the bike works better IMO that way.

    Is this the same with the aluminum version. I am in the same boat as the OP except I don't have a chance to demo either size, I usually ride med as I am 5" 9 1/2' barefoot. Med or large?

    I'm the same size, so went to a demo weekend last weekend at a trail centre here in the UK, the SC guys had a med and LG Tallboy LTc in the test fleet, so I could ride them back to back. Instantly felt better on the med, could really throw it around, climbs amazing and descending, strewth, it just soaks up everything. Very impressed, just need to find the 2500 for the frame. Thats about $4000!!!!!!

    Go with a medium, if you better fit on 18 inch frames, medium for sure...

    UK is so expensive for bikes. look at ebay.. im in South Africa, just got mine for $2500.
