Love this. Really hope other XC bikes follow suit. As I get older, I sign up for a handful of XC/"Ultra XC" events per year. I wouldn't mind adding a 115-130mm bike to the quiver, but I don't want something overly heavy or with lame road bike geo.

Very good review...more

"frame-integrated storage compartment"
Hello SWAT ))

Interesting, how they managed it? I mean licensing from Spesh for that type of storage..

I think the important thing to look at here is going to be overall fit of the bike and whether you ultimately want 27.5" or 29" wheels. The reach is vastly different between the two bikes, along with a few other small geo differences. Aside from that, I would say the two bikes are similarly capable on descents.

I remembered another one. Most of the POV is from Treasure Trail.

I would not summarize the update of this bike as concentrating on monster-trucking the downhills. If you dig into it, you'll see that the updates are comprehensive for a better all around ride, i.e. the steeper seat tube angle. I do think that all types of riders would benefit in some way from these updates, whether it gives them more confidence on the steeps, improved VPP performance, or simply a nice seated climbing position.

That said, the old Hightower is still a really rad bike, and I'm sure lots of people still have an excellent time in the woods on it. That is what's really important.

Some brave lines next to the cactus in a couple places. Also, good work Dylan stucki, you were hauling. Richie is absurdly talented on a bike
