With 135mm of rear travel, the Hightower falls into the “trail” category; efficient, versatile, and just long-legged enough to put a smile on your face when you hit the occasional gnarly section. The Hightower features modern geometry along with all of Santa Cruz’s current crop of bikes. It sits in the Goldilocks zone with a 67-degree head tube and 430mm reach in medium. This helps it feel stable and inspire confidence in fast and steep terrain without feeling too cumbersome at slower speeds. With its VPP suspension, the Hightower also pedals extremely efficiently. At the recommended 30% sag there’s little pedal-bob or squat.

There are no surprises here. Every pre-owned bicycle we sell is serviced, inspected, and rated. Wear items — such as chains, brake pads, and tires — are replaced if they have less than 50 percent life.
Beyond those consumables, the condition chart above shows you what to expect. To create every chart, our experts inspect each bike and rate its components on a scale of 7-10. The Overall Rating is the average of those individual components, helping you tell how much overall wear this bike has. What about bikes rated 1-6? It’s simple. We don’t sell anything that scores below a 7. You’ve got high standards, and we do too.
Along with the condition chart, look closely at the bike’s detail images, which will highlight any wear or damage. Learn more about how we rate a bike’s condition to create this chart.
