Fresh Goods Friday 166

November 15, 2013

Friday’s here and the weekend’s knocking on the door. Let’s peruse the Fresh Goods  while we plan some rides yeah?

Nukeproof Mega TR 275 Comp


A 150mm/130mm bike for all day adventures? That’ll do.

The Nukeproof Mega looks to be a very tidy trail bike and perfect for a bit of everything. The 6061 aluminium hydroformed frame is Stealth Reverb compatible, a dropper post being the only thing that seems to be missing from the package.


Suspension is handled by Rockshox Monarch and Revelation and the bike comes with a 2×10 mix of SRAM X5 and X7, 180mm Avid Elixir 5’s deal with scrubbing speed.

Tidy front end

Price: £2399.00

Whyte M-109


Jorji’s just taken delivery of her Long Termer – a 100mm full suspension marathon/endurance focussed Whyte M-109.


With a Fox Float 32 Evolution up front and a matching Float CTD boost valved shock handling everything else, the M-109 comes with a 3×10 Deore/SLX mixed drivetrain and 1180mm Shimano BR596 brakes taking care of stopping.

Front end looks the business

Ford Transit Custom Kombi

Long wheelbase, 310 Trend, to give it its full name.
Room for many bikes and a bobble

Ford has sent us a van to review as part of our ‘Project Singletrack New Van’ and we’ve been out trying this Transit Custom Kombi. It’s an eight seater (still with luggage room) or you can remove three, or six, seats to get more bikes and gear in. We’ll be back with a full review, but first impressions are mighty good.

Price: From £30,954 (though ours has many fancy extras)

Right we’re outta here. See you Monday; go shred some Gnar, skirt some brown pow or just enjoy riding your bike.
