Hightower Carbon R Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Trail bikes tend to be the steeds we think of as quiver killers in our garage. They serve many purposes, and challenge the sum of their numbers to take on terrain that the big-bikes eat up, and soar up climbs with the best of their short-travel companions.

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.
