selling my Santa Cruz Hightower (v1) frame. The reason for sale is that i have recently changed to the v2 frame.
The frame is a Medium in the top spec Carbon CC. I have owned the frame since new and got it from Pedal and Spoke in 2016 (proof available on purchase). It been invisi-framed since new. All of the invisiframe is still on it except the piece on the top tube has been removed as it got a bit tatty.
The linkage bearings have been replaced in January of 2021 (receipts available)
It comes fitted with the original RockShox Monarch shock which has hardly been used as i swapped it with another shock as soon as i built up the frame. I have two more shocks that fit this frame (Float x2 and Cane Creek DB coil) for sale on here too separately but could do a deal for one or both of these with the frame as well if they are still available.
bad points: there is a scratch from chain suck on the drive side chainsstay which i have tried to show in the photos. It cant been seen when the drive train is on. There is a scuff on the dowm tube junction with BB shell from where the water bottem rubbed up against it. There is a chip on the paint on the inside of the non-drive side chainstay. I have left all the invisiframe on as its mostly in good condition but there are a few marks on it in places but obviously, these will disappear if you take off the invisiframe or replace it.
This is a great frame that i have really enjoyed riding in all conditions. I do mostly light trail/ XC and a few bike park days now and again but nothing crazy. This frame can be built up to either run 29 or 650B+ wheels. i have run it in both configurations and like both for different situations. It also has a flip-chip to adjust BB height and HT angle
More pics available on request. Looking for about £1400 but open to sensible offers and as i say can do a deal with the other shock i have on for sale here too if that is of interest
will post to UK mainland and Paypal pls. collection possible too from RH20
