Good thing the video isn't about skidding then.

Review: 2019 Santa Cruz Megatower - Stiff & Solid, But Not That Sensitive
If you get one, go for the coil option. I've been riding my megatower with a coil for about a month and a half and it has none of the harshness Mike was talking about. I do agree with him that bottoming out is a bit too easy though. I just ordered an MRP progressive spring so hopefully that'll give me better bottom out support. Here are my thoughts comparing the megatower against the nomad in case anyone's interested: So far the megatower feels more stable than the nomad charging through steep and rough stuff, the limit is when there are sharp corners on extremely steep faces. I'd say in that scenario the nomad has a slight edge. Straight line speed on the MT is nuts and the bike is noticeably more composed through chunder than the nomad, especially with the coil shock out back. They both feel similar in the air, although the megatower is slightly easier to pop and more playful feeling overall, at least in a straight line. The Nomad is better suited to being an idiot in corners and you can enter on a tighter line and hold a tighter radius better.The Megatower is just as fast if you're taking intelligent lines but less forgiving of cutting inside and spraying dirt in terms of exit speed. Climbing wise they're very similar although I think the Nomad is slightly better at grinding up logging roads and the Megatower has the edge on technical or loose trails. This isn't a straight comparison though because I had an airshock on the Nomad and a coil on the Megatower. In terms of chassis feel, the Megatower's rear end is noticeably stiffer, especially when landing a bit sideways or really pushing the rear end into a corner and braking loose. That's not to say the Nomad was a wet noodle though, and I think the frame itself tracked better through really rough stuff due to the extra compliance.

But they're running 27.5 wheels on the rear. Maybe they got sick of the Specialized GRIP-NON tires.

Santa Cruz Nomad C S XL

$5250 CAD
I bought this bike in November 2018 but have decided that I want something with a bit less travel and bigger wheels. It only has about 10 rides on it. The spec is fully stock except for the following changes: Nukeproof ARD tire inserts front and rear WTB Convict Tough Casing on the rear OneUp EDC Top Cap Pictured but not included: Pedals Fender Guide RSC Levers (Code R levers will be reinstalled) Custom chain silencer ODI grips (stock ones will be put back on) Bottle cage Zero significant cosmetic damage / wear marks. The rear end of the bike is brand new and unridden (not pictured). Any spots where the cables could rub the frame were 3M taped before the bike was ridden. Chain was replaced at the end of February and the rest of the drivetrain is above 80% life. PayPal or cash only. Buyer pays shipping.
