i don’t wanna sound like a butthole... but... I don’t find drops of a “few feet” to be considered black or DB. Unless it’s super steep, tight, dropping into switch or D all the above at the same time. I’ve hit plenty man made doubles and tables with it. But it’s a trail bike. Not an all mountain bike. And I can’t justify an X2 or coil (even 11-6) on 135mm of rear. Flat flowy trails are sick though.

ooorrrr.. santa cruz could just refresh the LT with a seat angle that isnt a lawn chair and a 65 HA. I loved my hightower in the stock XO1 config riding blue and green trails. i tried to burly it up for black trails (monarch plus, tires, cush core, 35 stem, tall bars) but it just doesnt work...

this is why i love vital. responding to readers and giving quality feedback. +10283912074 points.

this bike seems to be as close as ever to the cliche "do everything, one quiver" bike. with moto and bmx roots i love berms and jump trails. with an X2 would this 140mm rear end still handle bike park jump lines?
