I was on the Tallboy all of last season, albeit on East Coast New England rocky rooty and short punchy up/down terrain and just didn't love the bike vs. my Knolly Fugitive or Stumpy.  Maybe VPP =/= Clydesdale bike?  I would actually say its better to compare the Evil Following (had Mk I and MB but not MkIII) to the Tallboy, where I'd say its no where near as good in the all-rounder up/down and even send it category. Picked up the Spur for this season so will see how it goes, that said I do have a big squishy Enduro/Freeride rig and want something snappier for quick "dad break" rides or for long days in Pisgah or (hopefully) out and about in Whistler Valley for a couple weeks every (normal) summer... LOTS, Duncan's, Uncomfortable Bum, Out There, etc. First Spur ride was yesterday, but on top of 10 cm of well packed snow so about as useful for gathering an opinion as riding a bantha.  It is wicked light and the two little drops that were packed in nicely the Sid Rear handled smoothly (I have a Pike dropped to 120mm and stuff with custom bits and tune for the Spur).  The tech was buried by the snow so more to come.
