Hi and thanks for your advice in advance.

Basically, I have narrowed my search and know I want a Santa Cruz Highball Alloy. Now I have to make a decision on component package. I am getting a screaming deal from my LBS and it is a difference in $400 to upgrade from the RXC package with a Recon Silver fork to the DXC package with a 32 Float CTD fork.

Santa Cruz Bicycles Highball Aluminum

I wouldn't say I am very aggressive although I'd like to be more. Weight of the bike is a nice factor and the extra $400 saves me about 3 pounds. I don't 'need' tubeless tires. The upgrade would pretty much be to save some weight and have a nicer fork. I would also have a nicer component package (Deore to SLX) but I am not sure I need it.

What do you think???? Any and all advice is appreciated.

Ride that fork. I would choose a Manitou Tower Pro and sell the Fox. The Recon build has Avid brakes which need an upgrade.

$400 for a 3LB weight loss and move up to full SLX and you're not sure :eek:ut: Jump on that deal before the shop realizes the mistake they've made :D
