    Demoing one on Friday.

    XXL size.

    Wasnt really on my list but been finding it hard to find bikes “big enough” and a sit on one in the shop convinced me that it’s a contender.

    Will probably be the alloy S model, not sure that I can justify £5k plus

    Well when I ordered my frame only I was told that if I’d gone for a full bike I’d of had it within a week. Having said that I stumped for the womens version just because I prefer the colours but I’d of thought the hightower would of been more readily available. Ordered mine two weeks ago as of tomorrow.

    a friend of mine has had his carbon, size large build on order for a month or so now.

    he got an email today saying that Jungle are waiting for the forks and build kits to come in, so its a few weeks delay.

    unfortunately I don’t know which build he went for. I think he ordered via Rutland cycles.

    how you liking it? also what dropper came on yours?

    Still not ridden mine yet and only took a demo bike on a short spin around the bike shop car park (more to decide whether XL or XXL needed) so no idea what it rides like*
    However, mine has the newest model Reverb (apparently)

    * Insurance replacement for a crash damaged Hightower LT…I wouldn’t normally drop this amount of cash on a bike without extensive test rides!!

    Another 2 – 3 week delay on my frame only.

    Got mine last Friday, desert coloured. It came with the reverb post.

    Hi @dandasbike – generally all CC bikes come with a slightly altered spec that uses a KS Lev Integra w/ Southpaw remote instead of a Reverb. Initial orders sometimes arrive with a US spec kit which has a Reverb – but if you have a preference please let your dealer know and we can ensure your bike has that option. Cheers!

    I ordered mine in highland blue cs build in a medium on 10/8. My LBS have been abysmal originally telling me a couple of weeks then 11/9 and now 5/10. Stating that they don’t really know the delay and think that the US has grabbed the allocation of frames due to success and stuff the UK. I’m calling weekly and just off the phone and no help at all other than it’s not in our order this week.

    Any idea of the problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would say it depends when your shop put their pre orders in. If it’s a popular size & colour it might slow things, also the shops who put in the biggest orders usually get 1st pickings

    Wow, that blue colour is awesome! My hightower v1 is in slate grey; the dullest colour known to man. My first ride on it was in North Wales so at least I blended in in the slate quarries.
