Hightower LT Carbon R Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
As Santa Cruz's longest travel offering with 29-inch wheels, the Hightower LT has to live up to some high expeditions, but just throw a leg over it, pedal it up to the top, drop the post and hit some rugged lines at high speed and you'll quickly realize why the bigger wheels are chosen by its Enduro World Series riders. Simply put, the Santa Cruz Hightower LT Carbon R Complete Mountain Bike is built in the likeness of its critically acclaimed Hightower, but it supercharges it with a touch more travel and slacker angles for more composure on brutal enduro race courses while still pedaling with enough urgency up extended climbs and across ridgeline trails. If you're after a bike that's no slouch on mellower after work hot laps on your closest trail network but still has the chops to tame the most demanding trails on planet earth, this is your ride.

This dedication to 29-inch wheels also means that the LT does away with the Hightower's adjustable geometry, again courtesy of that flip chip, in favor of a fixed position upper link that's been updated to provide the aggressive geometry and stiffness demanded by some of the fastest enduro racers on earth. The LT's 150mm of travel has been painstakingly refined, drawing lessons from every aspect of Santa Cruz's enviable racing organization. As with all VPP bikes, the LT's counter-rotating links are carefully arranged to resist activation ...

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.
