Where in the Santa Cruz line does this bike fit?
The Hightower’s pedigree is closest the current Bronson with different wheels
What is required to change the bike between 29 and 27.5+?
A wheel set and the correct length fork (and a flip of the chip)
Yeah, but what if I’m too lazy or don’t wanna buy a second fork?
We’d then suggest going with the 27.5+/150mm fork configuration as running 29er wheels work better with a longer fork than the other way around.
Alternately you could switch out the Pike’s air shaft to a longer or shorter air- spring as needed.
The Hightower is available in 27.5 plus as well as 29er. Trims include Hightower C and Hightower CC in both wheel sizes.
