yeah that's why i was looking into a ripmo to replace my hightower. the issue is i dont really have trouble on the hightower, for example i went to downieville for the first time ever a couple weeks ago and cleared the Waterfall section my first try, without much difficulty at all. so i'm not sure how much better a ripmo will be compared to what i have now, although i guess it is a bit slacker and the seat angle is steeper. i think i may just wait it out like others have suggested and try and ride my hightower how it is till i come back from taiwan and hopefully by then i can get an XL druid frame on order.

Now retired. Haters going to hate Hahahaha lol lol

Wonder if putting those reserve wheels on an e-bike voids the warranty?

"Lifetime Warranty

Lifetime. No gimmicks. Not limited. If you do actually manage to break our rim while out riding, we'll replace it for free. And probably high five you in the process! If it gets run over by a truck we'll help you out with a low cost accidental 'crash replacement', because life's too short to argue. We know riding time's too precious to keep you waiting, so we'll do our best to sort you out fast."

Haven't posted my ride in a while. Spot Rolik 150. Recent adds are new tires (Onza Ibex front, Continental MountainKing rear), XT 11sp shifter/derailleur, and e13 TRS+ cranks.


I love this bike, it's so much fun to ride. Kind of eyeing Manitou's Mara Pro shock as an upgrade to the DPX2 performance that's on there now.

Hehe- youve got summer breaks I assume?
Every time Ive got more than usual time on my hands I keep thinking about buying this and that...but when the learning sessions kick in I forget about it 95% of the time.

Focus on your grades instead of searching for new bikes, will help more in the long run.

If youre happy with your bike: Keep it and be happy with what youve got- Im more than happy with my Stumpjumper now and wont even Change anything on it as it rides to perfect.

The colour is just charming.

What are good riding spots around Vienna?
I could go on Trailforks or Strava but that takes effort.

If you can, try to stop at Schöckl, close to Graz. That place is quite rough, but ton of fun to ride.

The shared Trails are in Trailforks (all legal)

I would ride: Wurzeltrail (you end Up in Weidling auch), Go Back up and ride the Roan Trail and pedal either to the Südtiroler or take the singletrail from the Hermannskogel (a really nice Trail) and Finish with the Rollercoaster at Leopoldsberg.
Kahlenberg Trails are roughly the same as the ones on the big hill in Zagreb- but no big jumps as on the on insane line there (forgot the Name)

You can combine the trails at Kahlenberg and Leopoldsberg very easiely+ you cross fire roads which you can pedal up fast.

For a day you can check out the Trailpark Mauerbach too- 3 trails and 1 uphill trail- really nicely shaped.

And dont forget the Anninger in the South of Vienna (Mödling/Gießhübl)... Rocky, rooty and technical and no leafes as there is softwood forest.

You can send me a PM If youre in Vienna Smile

alright i hate to be that guy but im gonna do it anyways. i need some "what should i buy" advice.

Ive been riding my hightower LT for the last 1.5 years, and i love it, but recently i think ive fallen into a bit of a weird funk where im just not as stoked on it. I had actually ordered and received a megatower frame, but ended up returning it as there were a lot of negative reviews regarding the rear suspension from pb and various friends. i also needed money for school so returning the megatower freed some up.
My issue now is i have about ~$2k. i'm wanting to either retire my hightower frame and buy a Ripmo AF, or keep my hightower frame, buy a Trust Shout fork, since i figure if i like it i'll keep it and if i don't, i can use ye olde 30-day money back guarantee.
or i guess i can just stop riding for a little while and try getting something like a forbidden druid next year.
In 2 months there's probably gonna be a pretty game changing mid travel bike available, so holding off for a bit might be real wise.
