Sure; I rode it back to back with the BXCC, and my personal ride is a Mojo carbon, set up more on the XC end than the AM end. Pedaling performance is very important to me, so I was interested to see how the revised VPP would stack up against the DW. I would have liked to have ridden the BLTC, but time did not permit. Interestingly, this is the first bike that I've ridden that actually looked like it had the correct proportions for me (@ 6'4"), when factoring in wheel size, seat post extension, etc.JohnnyG 1970 said:Diesel~ How about some feed back. I want to get the TallBoy this spring. Down here AKA East Coast. There is No way to Demo that bike. Feed Back would be great. I have a Niner EMD with a Fox F29 15QR 100mm. Thinking about getting the TallBoy Frame. Thanks
Glad you found some value in the reviews. The orange color looked good in person, as long as you are not going for the understated look. The photo I posted is pretty accurate color wise, though the nude carbon looks better in person than in the photo.JohnnyG 1970 said:Thanks to both of you guys for the great write ups. And yes, both of your reviews helps allot. Looks like this winter. I will be getting a S/C TallBoy. How did the Orange color looked? That is the color I want to get. The Fox RP-23 on the TallBoy is it the same shock like on my 2010 BlurLT2- Fox RP-23 Boost-Valve? Great write up. Both of them.
I rode an XL BXC and a XXL Tallboy. The TT length on an XL Tallboy is the same as on the XL Blur. When I first walked up, the SC guys pegged me as an XL, though with a stock 350mm seatpost, it would put me an inch past the minimum insertion. SC guidance was that I could go for a 410 seatpost, no problem. I personally liked the longer reach of the XXL, but I come from an XC background, so I'm used to being stretched out.JohnnyG 1970 said:Thanks again for the info. I have the S/C BlurLT2 c. Just waiting on some stuff. I ordered to complete the bike. Wheels and stem. I have the same shock on my 2010 BlurLT2. I have to say its really great. The best Air rear shock I have ever ridden hands down. The orange TB is the color I am going to get, w/ a black Fox F29 Taper 1.5 15 QR 100mm Fork. Very nice review. Q in the above post mudworm- had said the S/C guys had said with the TallBoy go a size down. I have mediums size BlurLT2 and BlurLT2 c. I thought the smallest size TB was a medium. Any feed back or talk from the S/C guys when you where demoing bikes? Thanks
