Hightower Carbon CC 29 X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles

We take water bottle cage mounts on the inside of the front triangle for granted until we ride a bike that doesn't have it. Riding without a pack is liberating and it's nice having bottle mounts we will actually use. The triangle also has room for a piggyback shock so if you want to go full gnar, tackle some enduros, or ride technical and demanding trails, the Hightower has you covered with enough room for a more capable shoc...
