    Looks like they are no longer selling the Hightower and Tallboy as 27.5+ models anymore.

    Now the Bronson and 5010 are capable of 27.5 & 27.5+

    I sure liked last years color combos and prices for the Hightower a lot better. Looks like the X01 build cost went up by a grand and the components haven't changed :thumbsdown:. Not seeing any 27.5+ build options either wtf:confused:? Hopefully the website just isn't complete or the info isn't all correct. I think my mango rig just became a collectors item.

    Orange is probably my least favorite color for anything.

    I hated my blue Highball because it had a few orange accent stripes on it.

    I was considering buying the frame only and joining the club since I can finally get a different color than the rest of you but $749.00 seems steep for an alloy frame.

    What about oranges? Do you not like to eat them because of their color? ;)

    "hate" is a strong word.

    Worth it.

    So... What changes have they made to the 5010? Is the increased tire clearance the only change? Help out my sleep deprived eyes. What am I missing?

    And did the base model Hightower have a Revelation up front before?

    I'm gonna say the Revelation is new... Considering it's spelled incorrectly on the website. o_O

    The 5010 slacker HA and steeper STA, wider tired, flip chip to adjust geometry.

    The Revelation on the Hightower was probably on there last year.

    So what I'm getting out of this is @mtnbikej doesn't like orange bikes and therefor he must not like my mango Hightower:D but that's fine cuzz I do:thumbsup:. My feelings are so hurt boohoo:Roflmao. OK well I wasn't a fan of the mango/orange color at first either but it has grown on me especially since I didnt want to be total twinzies with my main amigo @Mikie not to mention the 543 others here that have bought the greyish/white one(which by the way is totally frikkin awesome).

    I likey most of the new rigs and color combos but I sure hope the website info is wrong on the standard Hightower or they missed they mark. Don't dig the colors and they are showing a HT with an x01 build for $7999 while the same build(with same components) on a Tallboy is $6799. No plus sized options on the HT or the Tallboy doesn't make sense to me either cause they sold the sh!t out of them the last couple years. I get the feeling they may do away with the TB and the HT soon.

    I don't think they sold enough of the TB or HT in 27.5+

    When Suz bought her TB 27.5+ the LBS said they were not stocking them because they were not selling. I can understand that....the TB was created as a 29er.

    I'd say it is a typo on the website.....perhaps the HT reflects the carbon wheels.

    I'm a 29er guy so I get it(except that I'm on the sizing border and my MY HT is just more fun in 27.5+ mode for ME). Funny cause around here I think 27.5+ sold about 10:1 over 29. Maybe cuz our dirt is dryer than a popcorn fart year round...
