Hightower LT Carbon S Reserve Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Santa Cruz's professional enduro riders asked for it, andthe engineers and designers at Santa Cruz provided it. Big wheels simply havean innate ability to carry momentum and speed over rougher trails in a waythat's simply not possible on 27. 5-inch wheels. The wider open and blown-out itis, the more the 29er pulls away.

Since it's purely intended as a 29-inch application, thedesigners at Santa Cruz eliminated the flip-chip, making it more of afine-tuned machine for enduro racing without the need for switching it to 27. 5+for...

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.
