Highball Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame by Santa Cruz Bicycles

It seems like not too long ago, this was an impressive feat on a road frame. Santa Cruz's engineers achieved this absurdly low weight by starting out with the finest carbon fiber and resins it could get its hands on and worked out an incredible layup schedule of carbon in critical zones, adding increased stiffness and structu...

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.
