    Summary

    Expirience with the Santa Cruz Megatower X01

    Santa Cruz Megatower X01 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. The combination of a 63,8 degree head tube angle and a long wheelbase calms down the handling of the Santa Cruz Fully, even if you ride fast. The relatively high front allows you to sit upright in the saddle. If you look at the frame as the heart of a bike, then Santa Cruz has done everything right. The frame leaves a very presentable impression. For trail lovers, one point dominates: the Santa Cruz Enduro scores in the decent with an extremely good geometry, a high-quality suspension and grippy tires. With 25 years warranty, you can not go wrong.
