If you haven't already done so get some heli tape on the top tube and any other areas that are likely to come in contact with cables, knees pads shoes etc etc. The paint on the Megas is fairly thin and wears through easily


Yeah already done the "rubby" place's and the down tube (box section Laughing )

TBH, the paint on the 2015 Mega seems thicker if any think than any of my other bikes Question ... wish I'd done this when I first got the Trek for where the hose's rub on the head tube Rolling Eyes

I've always liked the look of Nukeproof. Looks great

If it's good enough for Sam Hill, it's good enough for me Shocked Laughing

That is pretty slack. My hardtail is 67 with a 140mm fork. Love it. The xc bike doesn't get a look in anymore.


Hardtails usually have quite slack headangles to compensate for no rear shock (if that makes any sense)
