if you mean the santa cruz tallboy, i did.
it's a great bike, very nimble, very active, very fast. it has a shorter wheelbase so you can flick it around and it will get out of control and nuts if you want it to, as compared to a gary fisher rumblefish, with a larger wheelbase, higher bottom bracket, and slacker head angle, making it more stable and sort of a "restrictor plate racing" kind of machine. the only 29ers i've ridden are the tallboy and the rumblefish. i'm not a fan of 29ers, i wouldn't ride one, but if i had to, between the two i've had actual experience with, i would go with the tallboy.
when ibis releases the ripley, i may change my mind, if the hype is anything to believe.
