Ok, so just got it built up my MegaTower yesterday with parts from my Transition Sentinel and been for a quick spin around, doing the usual faff with air pressure etc but hope to get it out during the week for an early morning XC spin to get used to the cockpit layout and then do some shuttling next weekend.
Feels light compared with the Tranny (which in fairness was also fitted with an 116 coil) and I need to change the seatpost as its too tall for my short legs plus Im waiting for a Float X2 to show up but very happy so far.
Note: if you get the dark grey color frame watch out with any matt frame protection, in my case Invisiframe, as it does really stealth out the Santa Cruz logs.

Wow. That's interesting. You barely see the decals... I went all in with my green MT and blue decals. Invisiframe in gloss makes it shine even more. Smile

Picked up a 2019 Hightower recently and built it to my liking, at least for now and what I can afford. LOL Amazing how different this can ride from my HTLT. I ended up going 12 speed XT after dealing with a buggered up freehub on my wheels. Plans are to go DPX2 on the shock. I have not yet decided whether I am going 34/140 on the fork, or 36/150. I tried the 150 from my LT and liked it really well, better than what it has now. I really wanted to have this as a lighter trail bike. This bike oversteers a lot and the 150 helped cure that. Moving the stem up a spacer helped too, but not quite the same feel. Current fork is 42mm offset and the 150 is 44mm. I figure this played a slight role as well.

Fresh Invisiframe, XTR brakes, I9/Stans wheels, Fox Transfer post, Renthal carbon Lite bars, and renthal stem.

Only thing this pic does not show is my RF turbine/Wolf tooth ring combo. swapped them over after.

Thanks. I was going to buy an EXT Storia V3 but for now, the RS performs pretty well. I‘ll post some better pictures, once the front i9 Hydra in blue is laced. The details aren‘t really shown in this picture.

That front rotor seems really small.

That's the opposite of "money well spent".
