I bought a new Tallboy V4 to start the season last year. Honestly this bike is the cliché indulging "quiver killer"! I was coming off a 2016 5010 and really wanted a bike that pedaled better. My local rides(Fernie) were definitely more fast (up & down), but it wasn't the slightly more xc machine I had hoped for. This Tallboy was 29lbs, a little portly for an xc rig. I soon came to realize what I had was definitely not an xc bike and that was ok. I upped the fork to 140mm and embraced what I had... an all out weapon of a bike that really could ride all I could throw at it. After 50,000m of climbing last summer the bike was flawless, more bike than I thought was possible for 120mm. Long rides and short quickies it was good for everything. This is a very complicated case Maude. You know, a lotta ins, a lotta outs, lotta what-have-yous.
