So my bike search continues for my northeast US riding. Something the can climb okay and decend well down the rough stuff. I have found some good deals on the 2018-2019 hightowers. I looked at the 2020 models but for my 3k budget the Sram SX comments seem to be pretty crappy. I can find a low use well spec'd 18 or 19 that's in my budget. Not sure if I would go 27.5 plus or 29er but I like have both option s available.

I have a HTLT, 2019, and just sold a 19 HT. I had an 18 Tallboy before that. The HT was too in between for me. If I had bought it before my LT, I would have probably been happy, but I am finding the LT to be a hoot and pedals about as well as my TB did. IMHO, I would go LT over the HT.

I was considering that. You think the long travel version is that much better then the standard hightower?

Yes. I wanted to keep the HT because Iike the color better, but it just was not as fun and they pedaled about the same, so I sold the HT and kept the LT. The LT tracks better, turned with more control, and just felt better everywhere.
