Hightower Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Hightower Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame is Santa Cruz's premiere bike for conquering large swaths of imposing alpine terrain where steep, rocky descents pose a significant challenge. When it was first introduced, the Hightower represented the longest travel 29er in Santa Cruz's range (now supplanted by the Hightower LT), making it the go-to choice for handling challenging alpine terrain. For unmatched versatility, it's configurable with either 29-inch or 27. 5+ wheels, courtesy of its flip-chip located along the upper linkage. This ability to swap between wheel sizes gives the Hightower speed-carrying, obstacle-rolling abilities as a 29er or voluminous traction and bump-smoothing support in 27. 5+ form. This particular version of the Hightower benefits from the significant weight savings of Santa Cruz's top-flight Carbon CC frame, which saves approximately 230 grams from the less expensive Carbon C frame. Best of all, the frame's weight savings don't sacrifice one bit of the legendary strength and stiffness you've come to associate with Santa Cruz carbon.

Regardless of what wheel size you run, the Hightower solidifies its status as an aggressive trail machine with its long, slack geometry inspiring confidence at high speeds. The head tube angle is practically the same between both wheel sizes at 67-degrees, so long as you choose a 140-millimeter fork on the 29er and a 150-millimeter fork in 27. 5+ form. Both sizes retain a roomy cockpit and noticeably long wheelbase for a comfortable and confident riding position, also lending stability when you open it up at high speeds. To help offset the longer geometry, Santa Cruz designed the Hightower with relatively short chainstays of 17. 1-inches for quick turning capabilities. It's also pretty d...

Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
