Megatower Carbon R Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles

The revised suspension maintains the same efficient pedaling and climbing performance of previous generations of VPP while offering unprecedented, glued-to-the-trail grip, enabling you to push your limits with more conf...

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.
