Now, I know Santa Cruz has never been the most revolutionary company when it comes to bleeding edge geometry changes year over year with their bikes, but even for them this is a relatively small set change compared to the outgoing model (which maybe add up to a substantially improved bike for some? we'll see). I actually find it somewhat refreshing. We have a company who clearly felt the outgoing model, which lasted a normal length of time for a mega-company (3ish model years?), remains pretty darn good. The new one... isn't all that different. You couldn't tell them apart from looking. Maybe you'd have to look really close. They're even calling it a full generational change too - v2 to v3.  If I was an owner of the Hightower V2, I don't think I'd be looking to pick up a v3. That's kind of comforting in a "you always need the newest and the best" MTB media world.
