Owen Dennehywrote a review of Santa Cruz Bicycles Hightower Carbon 29 R Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 on October 4, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
After only having one ride (and having a blast) I am not sure this qualifies as review for the Hightower, but I wanted to take a moment to call out the Backcountry.com team. Bike arrived 95% ready to rock out of the box in 2 days, packed meticulously with extra care and attention to detail. Kudos to the team at Competitive Cyclist for turning it around so quickly and delivering the bike with shock set to my weight and ready to ride after just about 30 minutes of assembly. Because of this fine packing job / quick assembly I was ably to get out on that short test ride. Also wanted to throw a Shout Out to Conner Johnson, the Gearhead whose review helped a ton with the decision to go with this bike. Test Ride # 2 coming up!
