Thanks for the feedback. I was actually waiting for the new Hightower to come out but when it did the prices were so crazy for what you get that it really put me off of it.

It's interesting that you liked the Tallboy though. That's a Fox 34 setup but I guess you didn't find it too flexy?

Yeah Santa Cruz has gone full boutique with the pricing and availability, shame because their bikes are getting really good.

34s are fine for me at 130mm, but I'd prefer a Pike as it's noticeably stiffer and just as plush. Updated Tallboy 5 should be out very soon, so you could try and score a deal on the outgoing model if you can find one (good luck). Or get a lightly used one from the buysell from someone who just has to have the new one

Tallboy is pretty stout, so is the Trek Fuel EX

Coincidentally, I'm looking to upgrade from a 2020 Fuel EX8. That does have a 34, but it's the lower end Rhythm model and obvious a few years old. I've been curious how the new 2022 34 does in comparison, particularly at the Performance Elite level w/ Grip2.

Yep, the Tallboy is probably a better fit for my local trails than the Hightower, so if the TB5 comes out soon with updates similar to the Hightower, I may end up sucking it up and spending the money. It's tough to justify though. Even the $7k model only has Performance level suspension and base Code R brakes. Sheesh.

Sorry if I missed it earlier in the thread, but has anyone confirmed if a Fox Float X2 will fit the standard 2021-2022 Stumpjumper? I know it will fit the new Stumpy Evo...but curious if the Regular Stumpy has enough room?

Thanks!

I have yet to see that set up, looking at mine i doubt the aircan would clear the strut. The new float X is superior to the X2, so if you can get one of those tuned up i bet it would be sick

Good info...much appreciated!

What reasonnably priced wheelset (no more than 700 €) would you recommend to me? I read some great things about Hunt Trail Wide V2 which are really affordable (around 380 €) but not sure if the step from OEM wheels would be so big...

Just to thank all of you who gave me an advice. I'll have a look to all your suggestions. Wink
