    Woohooo oh me me meeeeee! Im waiting on the pikes so the fox are on loan from the shop and still waiting on spokes to get my chris kings built on to arch’s so again the wheels are on loan.

    nice (for a girls bike πŸ˜‰ ), is it a tall boy that? cant really figure out what it is from the size of (and being all girly)

    i know a few folks on here have the Tallboy LTc, just wondered has anybody built up a solo carbon or bronson carbon yet?

    im currently drooling/dreaming over them and would love some inspiration to sell a kidney/save up!

    Had a Solo Carbon in the stand at work today and it was a beauty. Full XTR and XX1 Gear. Stealth Black. Looked Quality. I too would like to see others.

    Pbooker, you should have taken some snaps of it! Sounds amazing!

    TallboyC – from when it was new last year

    *spunks* πŸ˜†

    Holy cow that’s nice, what a build, how does it ride and what sort of riding do you do/where?

    everywhere, peaks, dalby, local routes, was at gisburn last weekend

    feels like a lot more travel than than 100mm travel, its the Mk1 version which means you could chuck whatever forks you wanted on it – im sure the 140mm 34’s help the feeling of more travel, its in dire need of a service and tempted to send it to invisiframe as the frames getting some hammer now

    xx1 has been faultless, as well

    Can do a tallboy LT (not carbon) if you want? πŸ˜‰

    Ah cool cheers was think it was the LT version, still a great bike though I’m sure , weight I’m guessing around 24 lbs ish maybe?

    I’d defo want the long travel one if was going down the lt route, glad to hear it holds up at the peaks ok too

    Such nice looking bikes the latest santa cruz

    Oh go on then, heres a couple. I was quite a cynic about all the hype the mags gave the Tallboys until I took one for a spin. It is the best bike I’ve owned.

    how you getting on with the height of the front end?

    considered swapping my external lower headset for a ZS version,

    I get on fine with it. The forks are TALAS but never need to drop them to climb. In the pics it does look high but it fit’s really well.

    32s or 34s? although im only 5’6″ so quite small to be on a 29er,

    the only time it feels high is when climbing as ive got not much “pull” on the bars if that makes sense?

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a VPP bike from the non-driveside before. I know this is a Santa Cruz fanboi thread, but dare I say I think they look a bit odd?? It’s like the rear triangle has slipped down the seat tube πŸ˜€

    Otherwise they do look pretty nice

    That was exciting πŸ˜†

    some nice tallboys there, never really considered a alloy one TBH, but a fair bit cheaper too!

    can’t believe nobodys got a bronson yet though? they’ve been out a couple of months now im sure

    I imagine those who can afford to buy a nicely spec’d Bronson are too busy to be posting on STW πŸ˜‰

    Been out much Dave?

    hi mate, yep been getting out loads really, probably riding more than ever in the last few months (due to a good summer i guess)

    i would have thought those who had a bronson, would be too busy driving their nice audi’s around and taking photos of the bike rather than riding it, then by the time they decide to get out, they decide its too muddy out to go and get it dirty? no?? πŸ˜‰

    how about you bud, out much?

    I know Solo availability ( or 5010 as it’s now called I believe) hasn’t been great.
    We’re waiting for several for customers that have been on back order for months!
    Having said that, some SHOULD be arriving this week πŸ˜‰

    I find that quite amusing seeing that I both ride a bronson and drive an audi…. such a shame Im female and therefore just about miss the male cliche πŸ˜†

    Yeah I’ve been out quite a bit recently. I’ve been loving my mountain biking so much my road bike hasn’t been out for a month!

    I had an ace ride around Gradbach the other week. Superb weather and some *ahem* cheekiness made for a fantastic morning out. I’m getting my confidence back now and LOVING the Bandit. Should be out tomorrow and/or Thursday night and hopefully Sunday morning too. Can’t wait

    I’ll be building a Solo C (5010 πŸ™ ) in the new year. This thread is not helping my patience…
