17 Higbtower: 140 flip chip in low vs. 150 flip chip in high.

Differences?

I have a 150 36 on it now and like, but may turn it into a lighter alternative to my HTLT. They are too similar right now.

Mountain creek bike park

Got some nice sticky dirt at mountain creek today. Snapped the chain on my nomad yesterday so I took the 5010, I forgot how fun this bike is

I just noticed the factory setting for the HT in 17 was low position with a 140/29 wheels. It is in the high pos now with a 150 fork. Safe to assume going to a 140/29 in low will be similar?

NVM, found my answer on the model webpage in the FAQ. didn't answer the seat of pants feel difference, but that may just have to happen to know for sure.

Damn man that thing is ALL hooked-up! XX1, AXS, nice PIKEs, the works, right down to the wheels n hubs n cassette, you must be psyched over that. Love it, love Santa Cruz frames. That's awesome

You're gonna' tear SH*T UP on the trails w/that thing. Get any 'test' ride in yet, feel out the suspension, how is it?

Thanks. Only a couple mild rides so far. Just getting back after almost two year lay off. Neck surgery. I am fat and slow right now. So far the bike is pretty sweet. Still dialing suspension. Just put the Pike on. Had a yari with the charger kit installed on it. I have always liked Pikes though. My go to fork. Stuff around here is mostly rock gardens and small drops. Should get out this week with the new fork. The rear shock is very nice so far. Bought it from another rider in the classified. He was same weight and rides same terrain (actually only lives three hours from me). Small world.

Nice! The fork goes really well with that frame. I ordered the silver Pike with my custom Tallboy build intending to get the Stormbringer purple frame... well they only had yellow left. Silver and yellow is not the best combo.

I do love that purple. Was on the hunt for one myself. The yellow and silver could be good with lots of black on it. Maybe tanwalls also. I can see it.
