    Tallboy LTc XXL size now in the works (crossposted in 29er forum)

    Due to the overwhelming demand, and some thinly veiled physical threats from big guys everywhere, we are now committing to making the Tallboy LTc in a XXL size.
    It will take a little while to get through the engineering/design, tooling and testing phases, so we are probably looking at a September release, but it will be done.
    Sizing will be similar to the XXL Tallboy C model.

    Scott this may be too early to ask but do you expect the price to stay the same or will the XXL have a price change?
    Vote with your feet.

    im not tall enough for a XXL, but man, SC is good to its customers. (and potential customers). what other bike company would do this, this quickly after releasing the bike?

    Absolute truth there. Kudos to SC . . . I bought an SC because the bike worked for me. I'll keep buying SC because of their customer service.

    Now, if only I could get Subaru to respond to my interweb'z demands
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Nicely done SC, nicely done. I'd like to think my completely rational and lucid rants on this forum helped change their minds But I'm guessing there were a few guys (and possibly girls?) who stopped by headquarters in person wielding torches.

    This is so awesome! I have an xxl tallboy right now and it fits perfect. I have wanted a long travel version of this bike, so I am already saving my cash for the XXL's to come out in the fall. Nice work SC!!!

    Saving my cash for an XXL TB LTc. Thanks SC, I was bummed when you originally announced that there wouldn't be an XXL. I'll be adding this to my stable that already includes an XXL TBc.

    Lucky you, there is no small size, so I'll need to stick to the Blur LTc

    I get the sinking feeling that they really have no clue.

    Phatass, can you put up some pics when it comes in? I'm waiting until mid January down here in oz and really want to see what the xxl looks like.

    Also went the matt carbon, with the SPX 2x10. The LBS swapped out the 26/38 chainrings for the new 24/38 XT ones for nothing.

    Thanks in advance.
