This bike is a beast! I've been putting the Megatower through its paces over the last week or so and it has blown me away with how capable it is. Ever since I rode the original hightower I knew I wanted a longer travel version for the trails in BC and now its here! So stoked!
Fascinating contrast between the old walls of the Tower of London (1078) and the half mile away modern London featuring the Gherkin (2004). The Tower of London has been used as a fortified palace, but also a prison for a large part of its history. The contemporary Gherkin (as referred to by locals) because of its obvious resemblance to the pickle - which the British refer to as a gherkin. The Gherkin is primarily office space in its 41 floors totaling 500K sq.ft. in the cities financial district. There is also a restaurant (HELIX )on the 39th floor.
