    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?

    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.

    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.

    no, you are fully in the range for XXL. I am 6'0" with monkey arms and I ride a XL Blur. And it has a shorter top tube than my dad's size L BMC SpeedFox.

    Both pics work and it looks awesome!!! Very jealous, as the sizing is very similar to my 20" Long Honzo, but my terrain suffices with a hardtail.

    It looks like the XXL LT is now available in Aluminum. Same goes for the regular Tallboy. That's nice!

    I wish SC made them with the matte paint... Not a fan at all of the glossy.

    There is no XXL TBLT, just the TBLTc. A friend emailed SC about the XXL TBLT and SC responded that they wonít be making it because they canít make the frame stiff and light enough in Aluminium.

    When the SC site was redone the "XXL in carbon only" disclaimer dissapeared from parts of the website.

    Sorry for the confusion. I guess it's a good thing - not only will we be the tallest most handsome men on the trail but our Tallboys will always be carbon.

    I have a hunch that something TBLTC related will be happening April 1. Holding my breath till then!

    No changes planned for the Tallboy in the immediate future.
    The Ď2016í model year changeover typically happens around June when the new kit/component options start to be released by the respective manufacturers, so that would be the next change.

    Just ordered xxl Tallboy LTc w/150mm pike. I'm 6'4 and I tried a XL at a demo last year and the cockpit felt a little small, so im praying that the XXL will not be to big. I'm comparing the Geo numbers with the XL Niner Rip9 I rode last year and they look really close. Oh well guess we will see in a few weeks.

    First Post on MTBR!!!

    I'm in the market for a Tallboy as I type. I'm 6'4 with a 33 inseam and am really thinking the XXL is the right choice for me. My question for the group is: Does Santa Cruz really offer the Tallboy NON LT in XXL in Aluminum?

    For anyone that is 6'4" with an XXL, please let me know how you're finding that size.
    I've just ordered my XXL and am worried it'll be too big.
