Expirience with the Santa Cruz Megatower R

Santa Cruz Megatower R Review The new Megatower comes in the typical Santa Cruz design with a low-lying VPP rear end. What is new, however, is the integrated storage compartment for the spare tube under the bottle holder. No matter how rowdy the ride gets: when shredding the Santa Cruz Megatower R, the 63,8 degree head tube angle and the long wheelbase ensure a pretty chilled handling. If you are already a little older, your back will love the comfortabel seating position of the Santa Cruz Fully. On the downhill, however, the Santa Cruz Megatower R is left in the dust by its competitors. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Santa Cruz puts a lot of trust in its products.
