I bought the frame in July 2018 while convalescing after a broken collar bone at BPW but since my injury I have been riding downhill sections so slowly, to the point I feel embarrassed to ride it….”all the gear…”. I am now riding XC all the time so I would like to sell this bike in order to buy an XC bike. Or maybe do a swap. It has covered less than 100 mi / 4 rides.
It is a 2018 Santz Cruz Hightower CC with a Fox DPX2 Factory shock, The frame is invisiframed and there are literally no marks on the frame at all. It is size XXL but Santa Cruz come up quite small so I would describe as XL/XXL, fitting someone 6’3″ to 6’6″ with a 50mm stem. For reference I am 6’3″.
– Fox 36 Factory Fork. 2017 model but new CSU in 2018 and a full service. A couple of scratches but great working order, super stiff and super smooth. A bit upgrade from the Fox 34 or Pike with little weight gain.
– New in August: Nextie Crocodile carbon 27.5 x 40mm outer rims with Hope Pro4 Boost hubs. The Crocodile stepped rim profile look great compared to most carbon rims. DT Swiss comp spokes and brass nipples, built by my LBS. High Roller front and Rekon rear, both 2.8 120 TPI.
– New in August: Reverb B1 170mm, M8000 Brakes, X01 carbon crank, ODI Rogue grips, Red Hope headset, 50mm stem and spacers.
– The M8000 XT mech, shifter and cassette are a couple of years old with a few scratches. Same for the Nukeproof carbon bar and saddle.
All in I paid £5200, including £3200 for the frame (incl upgraded shock), excluding the used XT parts, bar and saddle. Looking for £3500 for the bike or £2400 for the frame, assuming the buyer pays fees. Up for a swap for a Santa Cruz Blur of similar spec.
