Fox Float CTD Adjust Kashima (+ £220.00)
With 29" wheels finding greater acceptance amongst more and more riders, it was only a matter of time before some of those riders began pushing their boundaries and demanding a bike that was designed for more brutal terrain. The new Tallboy LT is our offering to those riders: aggressive geometry, 135mm of VPP® suspension travel, adjustable angular contact lower pivot bearings with recessed grease ports, custom drawn aluminum tubing, tapered head tube, and ISCG05 mounts.
Maintaining the climb-happy pedaling characteristics of all our VPP® bikes, the Tallboy LT takes the go-anywhere ethos of the original Tallboy and brings along a whole lot more game when the trail points downward and gets steep and chunky. It's a new breed of big-wheeled trail bike.

note: weights are approximate
What kind of bb do I need?
The Tallboy LT uses a standard 73mm threaded BB. Pretty much any crank on the market comes in a version that will fit this frame.
What size seatpost does it use?
The Tallboy LT uses a 30.9mm seatpost.
Can I run a dropper post on the Tallboy LT?
Yes, and we have included cable guides under the downtube for routing the cable/hose.
Can I mount a water bottle cage to my Tallboy LT?
Yes, each frame has one bottle cage mount under the downtube.
What size rear hub do I need?
The Tallboy LT uses a standard 135x10mm rear wheel.
What size rotor will fit in the Tallboy LT?
The Tallboy LT will accomodate up to a 203mm rear rotor. The frame uses ISO brake mounts.
What cranks are compatible? Can I use XX?
Most anything is compatible with the Tallboy LT, including XX cranks with 156mm Q factor. Just make sure you purchase your cranks for a 73mm threaded bb.
It looks like the lower link is off center in my frame- is everything ok?
Yes- this is correct. With our newer pivot system, the pivot axle draws the link over to one side in order to properly preload the bearings. This offset is accounted for in the frame design so everything ends up nice and straight in the end.
What size shock does the Tallboy LT use?
The Tallboy LT uses a 7.875"x2" shock (200x51mm). The mounting hardware is 22x8mm (or 21.8x8mm if Rockshox).
