Megatower Carbon R Complete Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Santa Cruz has been known for answering our wildest dreams with real-life bikes that hit the nail on the head, and the new Megatower Carbon R Complete Bike doesn't fall short. This enduro-hungry steed satiates what we thought was a never ending craving for lofty rides with big wheels, offering us 160-millimeters of travel that's eager to please, and quick-rolling wagon wheels to charge down precarious lines that gobble up and spit out smaller bikes. While the Hightower LT gave us the impression that it might fill the gap between a trail rig and DH dominator, we had some qualms with the idea of slapping a 150mm fork and new linkage on a Hightower front triangle, which left us with a tall bottom bracket, and slacker seat tube. Fortunately the Megatower zooms into modern geometry to give us the aggressive feel we want, demonstrating the prowess of designers at Santa Cruz once again. When it comes to filling an appetite for enduro, it doesn't surprise us that Santa Cruz has been cooking up a heavy-hitting 29er to add to their arsenal.

This happens to be right where the Megatower lands, with some of the longest reach numbers, steepest seat tube angles, and longest wheelbases you'll find from the firm's headquarters, this trusty steed is one progressive 29er that begs to be let loose for berm blasting at warp speed.We may just be speculating, but it seemed to us that the LT was a quick fix to get Santa Cruz's riders competitive in the enduro races, so it's natural that its followed by a beast of a bike that started its life as an enduro weapon from the ground up. The Megatower represents a two-year project that Santa C...

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.
