Megatower Carbon CC Coil Bike Frame by Santa Cruz Bicycles
When it comes to high speeds and gnarly terrain, long travel 29ers are arguably the most efficient tool for the job. The current trends in geometry along with advancements in frame design and suspension technology have transformed these machines into unstoppable enduro weapons that make quick work of daunting rock gardens and unruly descents, but are still enjoyable to ride when you're racking up miles on somewhat tamer terrain and flow trails.

With some of the longest reach numbers, steepest seat tube angles, and longest wheelbases we've seen come out of the firm's headquarters, this is one progressive 29er that likes to get rowdy. While the LT might have been a quick fix to get its sponsored riders competitive in enduro races, the Megatower started life as an enduro weapon built from ...
