    Tallboy sizing?

    Anyone here think their tallboy is too small?
    almost ready to buy. need a 24"(or so) top tube but tallboy carbons seat tube in a lrg. is only 18.5. i usually ride a 20" seat tube bike and run pretty close to limit. have done the math comparing to my spot ht (24.1" top tube,thompson lay back post and 110mm stem) and can make xl work without getting goofy (straight post,90mm stem) just wondering if anyone else has had issues.

    Yes the seattube is now shorter....however, I think it was done with the purpose if making it easier to run dropping posts. It gives shorter riders on large frames the ability. Plus the standover is a little shorter.

    My TB2 did initially feel smaller than my TB1, but after a couple of rides, it feels the same. It does look smaller, but I think that it is just a visual thing.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.
