About The MegaTower:

This is a Big Day Brawler. Big travel, big capabilities for big terrain and fearless riders.

Santa Cruz are characterised by their VPP suspension, and the MegaTower is no different. The dual rotating links act together to create a bottomless feel to the rear suspension so that no matter how big that jump, when you land you won't fell any harsh bottom-out, just pure control. But VPP isn't just about big hits, it's about effiency too. The design, in concjunction with a highly tuneable Rockshox Super Deluxe Select+, is initally supple but getting progressively stiffer. This provides grips when climbing without bobbing around when negotiating rocky steps and roots. All together, it's an efficient and massively smooth platform that's well suited to a bike of this capability.

Speaking of which, the MegaTower itself features 160mm of rear wheel travel and 29" wheels, putting it right in the enduro racing sweet spot. It means excellent momentum in rough terrain with the big wheels and suspension eating up rocks and roots with ease. Whether you actually race or not is up to you; what's true is that the MegaTower has serious ambition, so if you value speed and going as fast as you dare, look no further.

Geometry is as you'd expect for a bike of this nature. A 64.7 degree head angle and 76.4 degree seat angle allow for confident descentding and efficient climbing. A flipchip allows minor tweaking to this setup and can increase the wheelbase by 10mm for even more stability at speed. For the real downhillers out there, the frame is also compatible with a host of coil shocks for ultimate descending prowess. The MegaTower is designed around a short offset fork (42/44mm) which provides sharper handling than the head angle would have you believe, but doesn't sacrifice stability. As with any good mountain bike, it's a good all round balance.

Santa Cruz's carbon technology is one of the best in the mountain bike world. It isn't just ludicrously strong (check out this video for an example) it designed for easy maintenance too. Internal cables get their own internal sleeves for easy replacement; a threaded BB is easy to service by the home mechanic; anglular contact bearings again can be serviced by a competent mechanic without specialist tools. 

The MegaTower is a real fun machine. With big travel and big wheels, it can more than hold its own on the toughest of terrain, and if you plan on racing enduros, you'd be hard pressed to find any bike more capable of getting you down the hill faster. 

Condition: This particular ex-demo bike had 10-15 rides and been fully re-built so it is in perfect working order. There are some scratches and other cosmetic defects in keeping with a used bike, as shown in the images. For any further details, please get in touch.

Ex-Demo bikes are based in our Glentress shop where they are used through the season to allow prospective customers the chance to ride a particular bike before buying their own. The bikes have no more than 30 seperate rides (often much less) before being cleaned up for sale, which includes the following:

  • Fitting clear protective tape over high wear areas to keep the paint work looking smart
  • Replacing any parts that appear worn or damaged. Typically this includes new tyres, chain, cassette, cables and brake pads, plus inspection and replacement if necessary of various bearings and components.
  • Full service before sale. This includes a full strip down to the bare frame before the bike is rebuilt by our professional mechanics to manufacturer's tolerances. This often includes suspension and dropper post servicing.

All this means that our ex-demo and ex-hire bikes are in perfect condition and ready to ride straight away. Realistically there will be some minor cosmetic damage, but in terms of performance, you can purchase safe in the knowledge the bike is 100% fit for purpose.

Each Santa Cruz ex-demo bike comes with a full Lifetime Warranty on the frame and bearings. 

Want to know more? Contact our Glentress store directly via email to glentress@alpinebikes.co.uk. We can then provide a more accurate description for each bike, including pictures of any scuffs or scrapes.

If you wish to order an ex-demo bike online, here's the process:

  • On receipt of your order, our team will contact you to discuss delivery times. It may be necessary to order replacement parts for the bike before shipping or collection, so if you need the bike ASAP, please contact us first to discuss.
  • The bike will be made ready for collection or delivery in the timescale discussed.
