Expirience with the Santa Cruz Megatower S

Santa Cruz Megatower S 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. With a flat 63,8 degree head tube angle and a long reach, the geometry corresponds to the current trend. On long tours, the comfortable seating position ensures a relaxed back. We like: 25 years warranty on the frame!
