The versatile Hightower 1 from Santa Cruz Bicycles can be run with either 27.5+ or 29" wheels.

2018 Santa Cruz Hightower 1 CC 29 X01 with reserve wheelsThe Santa Cruz Hightower has geometry that remains optimized thanks to a “High/Low” setting on the upper link that flips to adjust bottom bracket height. Add to that the Hightower’s 67° head angle, longer reach and trim chain stays, and you've got a bike that is adaptable to every terrain and riding style. 

135mm of VPP® travel is reinforced by a 148 rear axle spacing and a linkage arrangement and swingarm design built for aggressive trail riding. Other great details here as well, including 150mm seat dropper post, a water bottle mount, and internal cable routing.
