Hightower LT Carbon CC 29 X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
We've been in love with the Hightower since its release back in 2016, but with the constant progression that comes along with the bike industry, it doesn't take long for us to start nit picking details, and dreaming up ways we think an outstanding bike can become outstandinger. We know we can't be alone with the feelings of always pining for more, because Santa Cruz answered our dreams in just a year from the original Hightower's release with the new Santa Cruz Hightower LT Carbon CC 29 X01 Eagle complete mountain bike. With the increased suspension the Hightower LT blew us out of the water with its true all mountain and enduro capability, and paired with SRAM's generous gearing and smooth shifting of the X01 Eagle groupset, we're having a hard time thinking of a way to beat it. Ultimately the Hightower LT remains mostly similar to the original Hightower in overall geometry. In fact, the two frames share the same front triangle all together. The key changes are those 15 additional millimeters of travel and the head and seat tubes, both of which are half a degree slacker. While increasing the travel on the bike is a quick and easy way to spot the change in the way a bike rides, the most significant difference between the Hightower and the Hightower LT's geometry is seen in the rear triangle. It maintains the same dual-upright design as before, but saw a redesign in the linkage and a new swingarm, which proved to be necessary in order to keep the well-loved VPP characteristics present with the new rear shock. The new FOX Float Factory DPX Kashima coated rear shock is paired with the most up to date iteration of VPP to dial in more mid-stroke support, so you don't have to worry about sinking through all of your travel too quickly when sending it down rock gardens or big drops. FOX's kashima coating on the Float lends itself to unmatched smoothness as you (ahem) float through your travel without jolts and harsh snags. The chainstays are stretched by a miniscule 2mm...

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. 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.
