    It is more or less an 'S' level build with a wheel upgrade. The frame has a few scratches, but nothing significant. Bearings are original but everything is running smooth. Lower link recently re-greased. Drivetrain has plenty of life left. Chain is fairly fresh. The only thing the bike will need in the near future is a new rear tire. Fork and shock have bene recently serviced. Dropper has less than 6 months use. Full spec list below:

    Frame: C-level Carbon. Red Sriracha Color. Size Large
    Fork: Rockshox Pike RC 150mm 29er Boost, with Debonair spring upgrade. Also has light/fast rebound tune and custom compression shimstack to reduce HSC and bring it closer to the RCT3 shimstack. Works so much better at my ~165lb riding weight.
    Rear Shock: Two choices. Either stock Rockshox Monarch RT, L/L tune. OR Manitou Mcleod. Can sell with both for $150 extra. .
    Handlebars: Race Face Chester, ~775mm width, 20mm rise, 35mm clamp
    Stem: Race Face Aeffect, 40mm length, 35mm clamp
    Brakes: Shimano SLX, 180mm rotors front/rear
    Grips: Ergon GE1
    Dropper: X-Fusion Manic 150mm drop
    Crankset: Race Face Aeffect 175mm length w/ 30T direct mount chainring
    Shifter: SRAM GX 11-speed
    Cassette: SRAM XG-1150 10-42t 11-speed
    Derailleur: SRAM X1 11-speed
    Wheels: DT350 6-bolt Boost Hubs laced to Easton ARC27 Rims. 28 double-butted spokes front/rear. Front hub has SRAM TorqueCap endcaps (works with Rockshox forks only). Both rims have some scratches, rear has a dent that can make tubeless setup a bit finicky, but does hold air just fine once everything is seated and sealed.
    Tires: Maxxis DHF 29x2.5WT 3C EXO MaxxTerra Front, Maxxis Aggressor 29x2.3 DC EXO Rear. Aggressor has seen better days and has some plugged punctures. Also have a ~50% worn DHRII 29x2.3 3C EXO I could swap on. I'd argue it grips despite looking more worn, I'll leave that up to you.

    Will ship at buyer's expense. Can meetup within reasonable distance of Saratoga Springs NY and possibly arrange a hand-off to NJ, VT, CT or MA.

    That was always my favorite colorway in the Hightower. Good luck with your sale!

    Dropped price $100 on pinkbike, so let's say mag price is 2750 at the moment. Can split shipping costs to the western half of the country, will cover shipping on the eastern half. Will also entertain selling frame separately if I there is also someone interested in all (or almost all) of the build kit.

    I'm interested in the frame, but don't need parts at this point, but radam already knows that. :-)

    Yes, everything but the frame (the shock being part of the frame sale, however). Just add another frame and you've got yourself a bike!
