unrootedwrote a question about e*thirteen components TRS Wheel - 29in on July 26, 2019
Do these wheels come with extra spokes?

Is there a way to tell if the reviews are written by real customers, or by Backcountry.com employees? I find a lot of the reviews on this site to be BS . ..
These gloves do not fit like the pair of DND gloves I have, the fingers are very tight along with the back of the hand. They finally started to break in and start to fit after 3 short bike rides and 4 hours of trail building. . . then the seams on the fingers started coming undone. Complete waste of money.
How are people sizing these relative to TC pros? I wear a 46 in TC Pros, and would want the same or just slightly looser fit than I get with those.
How would these be as an all-day multi pitch shoe for easy climbing (like 5.8 in toulumne)?
They look cool, but the fabric used is such low quality the seat was worn through after 3 uses.
I just ordered this for my wife in a small, then I read that they fit incredibly small. She is 5'7" tall, 115 lbs. what size she I get her?
Would the 148 be too short and narrow for a 6'5" tall, 200+ lb rider with size 14 feet?
Just received mine last night, was pleasantly surprised that mine (10' 3wt) came with a full well handle with a fighting butt, like those shown on the wetfly website. The rod is a nice looking aqua blue color with dark blue wraps. I put my 4wt reel/line on the rod and did a few practice casts in the yard, thankfully it didn't break, even though my cat caught the yarn I had on the end and I really pulled on it. . .so far I'm happy with the price, and the rod should at the very least help me reach a little farther for some tightline french nymphing.
Can the rod holding straps be moved to the left side of the pack???
I try to leave my merino socks from other companies out of the dryer, but if I forget it doesn't matter, with these they will shrink to a very small size, then rip if you try to put them on. I only buy merino wool socks because I think synthetics feel horrible and I have socks I love from Darn Tough, Giro, Pearl Izumi and Chromag, I suggest getting those unless you do not have a dryer at your house.
I purchased a size large and it fits much like most size large shirts fit me (6'4" tall 195 lbs, 41" chest). The colors look great, but compared to my Troy Lee Skyline Jersey this feels like plastic, it just does not breathe well. I will only be wearing this on short rides, or on days that the temp is in the 60's, otherwise I feel very clammy.
Bought these for my wife, who wears a size xs in the Yeti Caddoa Shorts, she ended up fitting a size small in these. She says the liners are still really tight, but hopefully they will stretch enough to be comfortable.
The quality is good, which it should be for the price, my wife says they are comfortable and they don't look overly baggy or tight on her.
I bought this when it first came out in 2012, since then the geometry of the newer 29er All Mountain Bikes has become much better. The Tallboy LT Carbon still has a really steep-XC-ish headtube and seattube, the chainstays are much longer than most other All Mountain 29ers out now.
I wish I would have waited a year, I've recently test ridden the Yeti SB95C and The Specialized Enduro 29 Carbon, both bikes feel much more agile, especially on switch backs. I could never get behind my size Medium Tallboy LT Carbon to manual through bumps, and I definately can't get the bike into the air very easily, especially compared to the Specialized Enduro. I think it has a lot to do with the steeper headtube and shorter chainstays on that bike.
The Santa Cruz Tallboy LT needs some major improvements if they want to compete with the other All Mountain 29ers that have come out in the last year.
The only place the Tallboy LT shines is on really long rides, but I have to put in more air than necessary to keep the back end from bobbing constantly, even with the trail mode switched on.
The blue color is much brighter in real life. gets really wrinkled and requires ironing more than any other shirt I have.
I don't mind having to iron the shirt, but this shirt gets super wrinkled from washing/drying.
To "cheaply" convert my current roof-top rack this is the best thing going, not terribly expensive considering it comes with the lock. I just ordered a second one. <br /><br />This one is a lot easier to use than the typical fork ups where you have to hold the bike just right while putting the thru axle on, with this you already have the axle in place and just set the vice/clamp. <br /><br />Remember to either remove the mount, or at the very least re-lock the clamp. I have lost both the 15mm adapter and the t-bolt because of my ineptitude! (thankfully I now have a track rack, which is worlds easier and allows my wife to mess with the bikes without me.)
Is the sizing chart accurate??? I wear an xxl in almost all gloves and my hand measured the way you're stating is 8.5". Everyone says I have big hands too.....
Initially I really liked this harness, mostly due to it's bomber construction, but after a few months of use and very little wear I replaced it. The harness was very uncomfortable for me, I wear a size 33 pant and have relatively big thighs but the leg loops were still too big and allowed part of my body to get squished.
