    New SC Hightower on the horizon?

    Iím considering a 2019 Hightower C S build right now but rumours keep swirling around a new one, possibly in July. Wanted to see if i could fish some views out here in case there is anyone in the know. I like the existing ride so will probably get it but curiosity is about to kill the cat here. My view is they increase the travel a bit. Maybe 140 front and rear. Could they do much more as far as geometry etc? i.e. would that make sense given current line up. If i waited i could end up wishing i had just bought the current one...

    wait until july. I am a former hightower owner and a current megatower owner. The new vpp and new geo is by far worth the weight. My megatower is a better all around bike then my hightower was, and it's far more capable.
