Richard is getting old and his memory may play games at mixing the time of his youth and present time :D

@yamahawarrior: welcome to 2016! ???? The Larsen TT was available in DH casing. No weak side walls here!

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
@b26-4-Life: exactly. If your seat angle is steep then hou can afford a longer front center/reach without feeling overly stretched when pedalling, and you can still get behind your seat in the dh and move on your bike.

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
@g-42: I don't think taller people are more prone to ride xc-trail than others. If tou look at the uci dh, a bunch of guys are over 180cm. I did realize that the Tallboy is an xxl, but this is just a name. If they'd make a Hightower with a size called ghtg with 500mm reach I could be very interested. Although I'm not decided what to think of the integrated headset

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
@alexsin: the most sold bikes at the moment are 650b long travel. Not 29 with 110 mm. So I would rather expect the Bronson to sell more but SC may have a different sales profile than other brands

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
@SpillWay: The Hightower is just a few weeks old.... I think american brands are currently way too conservative. It's unfortunate for me cause I like them, and if the reach becomes slowly longer on some frames, the seat angles (the real once, ones you pull out your dropper post, not the one in the nice geo chart) are back to what they were on my Rocky Mountain Slayer of 7 years ago!On long legged bike really, make the seat angle steep and the reach long, we only seat on the bike when going uphill!

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
It's good, but it's just the wrong frame. Hightower, Bronson and especially Nomad are still way too short :(

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
What I find more confusing is the Tallboy exists in longer frames than the Hightower. Max Reach: 505 vs 475 when long Reach is actually a plus for agressive riding combine to a short stem. Santa Cruz, I don't follow your logic here.

Urge Enduro-O-Matic 2 Helmet - Review
I also have an Urge helmet (the AM model, whatever it's called). It's the only one that does not move on my weird skull. I love it just for that!
