Another range of bikes to be given some love from the bigger-wheels-machine is the Nukeproof Mega. These popular trail bikes have been redesigned to take advantage of the new 27.5in tidal wave.
The range has been developed over the last year with the help of riders like Joe Smith, Matt Simmonds and Nigel Page of team Chain Reaction Cycles/Nukeproof. The team recently took delivery of their first samples of the 2014 Nukeproof Mega 275 bikes and the edit below shows the team enjoying a couple of sunny days in North Wales testing the bikes on a variety of terrain including Antur Stiniog and some other, more secret tracks.
The bikes will still come in a 26in wheel frame-only option (as well as a 275 frame) but the complete bikes will be 27.5in. The AM is a slackish 66°/72° while the TR is 67°/73°.
We could tell you to go to nukeproof.com for more details, but the truth is that nothing more is being given out until the bikes are launched officially at Eurobike in a couple of weeks. Needless to say, we’ll be there.
We did manage to poach the geometry charts from it though. Here you go:
