Big wheels big travel–that’s what the Megatower’s all about. So for those of us seeking a race-worthy long-travel enduro sled that won’t break the bank this GX build provides the self-sponsoring racer a weapon to tame double black diamond runs with enough let in the bank to fund entry fees and epic riding vacations. The bike’s lower-link driven VPP suspension provides levels of traction and confidence that are hard to match in the long-travel enduro category and we’ve put the bike together with a host of hand-picked parts that offer the perfect balance of durability and performance without breaking the bank.

This Competitive Cyclist custom build gets a RockShox Super Deluxe shock out back and a 38mm RockShox Zeb up front to tame chunder square-edge rock slabs and waterbar steps. We offer two rear shock options. They share the same design and function but the SDS+ offers a Threshold lever for adjusting the compression circuit. SRAM’s GX Eagle 12-speed group offers the same wide range of gears as the pricer X01 and XX1 groups providing plenty of ratios for climbing and descending. Brakes also come from SRAM and are Code R’s bringing the big bike down from speed with plenty of power modulation and confidence thanks to its 4-pistons and 200mm front rotor. The bike rolls on stout e*thirteen wheels with grippy 2. 4in tires and…
