Selling my 2018 Hightower LT, in great shape. I bought it in the XE build kit, but is now upgraded with a full XO1 Eagle drivetrain and SRAM Guide RSC brakes. Both the fork and shock have had a recent damper service. The bike has not been ridden this fall due to an injury. The frame has been wrapped in helicopter tape for protection since day one. Here are some highlights of the build kit: -Fork- Fox 36 Elite FIT4, 150mm, with MRP Ramp Control cartridge -Shock- Fox DPX2 Elite, 200x57 -Wheels- eThirteen TRS+ rims, 30mm, on Novatec hubs -Brake- SRAM Guide RSC, 200/180mm rotors, metallic pads -Drivetrain- SRAM XO1 Eagle cassette, derailleur, chain, and shifter -Crank/chainring- RaceFace Turbine 175, 30t OneUp Switch Oval ring with OneUp Bash Guide -Tires- Specialized Hillbilly/ Butcher (f+r) -Dropper Post- RockShox Reverb 150mm, (Brand New) -Bar and Stem- 780mm RaceFace Aeffect bar and 50mm Atlas stem The Hightower LT was quick to gain a following and with legendary Santa Cruz quality, this bike will give you years of service. The VPP suspension climbs very efficiently and with 150mm of travel it can be ridden on anything from flow trails to technical descents. It is a very capable and stable, but easy bike to get along with inspiring confidence to push a little harder.

Used Crankbrothers Mallet E pedals in black. These have some gouges, but are still spinning smoothly. Used for about 2/3 of a season, replaced with same pedals in a different color. The spindles are the standard spindles (not LS) for a 52mm q-factor. These are awesome pedals, anyone looking for a solid pedal to use with soft-soled clipless shoe will be happy. Cleats not included.

Custom Ibis 742 wheelset. Ibis rims, raced to Project 321 hubs with 32 DT double butted spokes. Rims are 35mm wide internally, and 42mm externally. The spacing on the hubs is non-Boost, but they can be run on Boost bikes with the use of different end caps (not included). The hubs have 1.5 degrees of engagement, and are the quieter versions of the Project 321 hubs. As is, they are almost silent. The 35mm rim width is optimized for 2.4-2.8 inch tires, which means they will work well on a plus-sized bike. They have offset spoke drilling, which makes the spoke tension on both sides more even. There are currently a set of 203mm/180mm Shimano IceTech rotors (6 bolt) installed, along with a set of Specialized 2.6 inch Butcher and Purgatory Grid tires.

After some awesome time on this bike, I am ready to sell my Bronson CC. This bike was originally purchased in March 2016. Here's the specs, with an idea of when things were installed or serviced. I am a bike shop employee, so this bike has has seen plenty of professional maintenance. Frame: 2016 Santa Cruz Bronson CC, size medium. New frame bearings April 2017. Fork: 2016 Rockshox Pike RCT3 150mm travel with Vorsprung Luftkappe negative air chamber and one Bottomless Token installed. Last service late July 2017 Shock: Fox Float X Factory. Last service late July 2017 Wheels: Easton ARC 27 on DT Swiss 350 hubs (28 spoke f+r). New in November 2016 Tires: Continental Der Baron Project 2.4 front, Maxxis Aggressor 2.3 in rear Brakes: Shimano XT, 203mm front rotor, 180mm rear. Pads half worn and brakes bled October 2017 Drivetrain: Shimano XT shifter, derailleur, and 11-46t cassette. Raceface Turbine cranks with 32t Wolf Tooth Oval ring. Chain replaced spring 2017. Pictured with blue Deity Black Kat flats, will be included for additional $50 Seatpost: Rockshox Reverb Stealth 150mm. Brand new post, has never been ridden. Also has new 1x remote lever. Cockpit: Raceface Atlas 35mm rise bar, 780mm wide. 5x8 sweep. 50mm Raceface Turbine stem with 10mm of spacers under, one 5mm over. WTB Silverado saddle. This bike rides very well. It's got a good mix of stability and pop, but pedals very well even around 35% rear sag. I installed the Vorsprung Luftkappe air chamber in the fork over the summer, which made a big difference in the tracking and bump compliance in the fork. It is set up with one additional Bottomless token, which gives a level of progression similar to three bottomless tokens in the standard air chamber. Adding to the progressive setup, the Float X has the second to largest volume spacer installed. The 780mm Raceface Atlas bars are new on this bike. I swapped out the stock bar for this higher rise one to get the bar height in a better position, as the bike has a very low stack height. I am selling my Bronson to buy a Hightower LT as my race bike for next season. There was no part of this setup that I didn't like, but I have come to prefer the feel of bigger wheels for racing-oriented bikes.
