Hightower Carbon 29 R Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Once relegated to the wheelsize of choice just for the cross country set, more manufactures and riders are experiencing the advantages of the larger wheels on trail bikes while riding demanding terrain. The industry trend towards bigger wheels is building with a momentum akin to what we experience when riding bikes with wagon wheels. The 2018 Santa Cruz Hightower Carbon 29 R is another example of a do-it-all trail bike, and it's dressed up with SRAM's excellent NX componentry and powerful Level T hydraulic brakes.

The 1x only setup on the Hightower allows Santa Cruz to shorten the chainstays to provide near-telepathic handling in tight terrain and crawl up techy climbs with relative ease. When the time comes to bomb back down, a 67-degree head tube angle, the added stiffness afforded by the boost spacing, and the latest version of the excellent VPP suspension allow for a shoot-first-ask-questions-later demeanor.

Santa Cruz sets the bar on carbon frame construction, and the top-notch fit and finish is present on this frame. The Hightower Carbon C is fully constructed from carbon fiber and boasts the same ride quality and durability of Santa Cruz's top-of-the-line Carbon CC frame. It packs ...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
