    Are we allowed bar ends again now? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    That’s a great looking bike. You could save a little more weight by ditching the bar ends.

    apart from the bar ends, I always think they are a bit dangerous in any crash as they stick up like two prongs from the bars, but hey ride what you want – very nice bike

    Just built up a new bike. Is is basically the same as my old bike, but lighter!

    Quite chuffed so far ๐Ÿ™‚ Managed to get out on it 4 days in a row during the amazing weather last week. New bike + amazing weather = bliss!

    More pics and a write up on my blog http://niksbikingblog.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/santa-cruz-carbon-highball-build.html

    Nice bike,
    I was thinking of buying/building a highball,

    What travel up front have you opted for?

    Looks good. I’d also be interested to hear your opinions on the fork.

    Looks great fun! What a lovely looking thing.

    It is a DT Swiss XMM 120, carbon steerer. This is the same fork that I have on my other Highball. I really like it a lot, love how I can drop it from 120mm to about 90mm, and lock it there for climbing, all with the small lever on the handlebars.

    I am. You’re not.

    I find the bar ends hugely beneficial to my riding.

    No more dangerous than any other part of the bike TBH. I understand why they aren’t as fashionable with mountain biking for joe-average norm moved away (in the UK at least I think) from XC and more toward AM / #enduro / GNAR ๐Ÿ™‚

    I bet that’s bloody fast.

    And the colour coded bird is a nice touch.

    “Never more!”

    Nice build. DT swiss forks, much under rated fork if you ask me.

    Not into XC but that looks nice. Looks like a skinny Spanish el matador type bull with those bar ends (if that makes any sense!? Lol)
