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.

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)
From: ford.co.uk

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

Comments (15)

  1. How big is the Garmin cam, anything for scale?

  2. That Nukeproof looks very smart. Just need to wait for CRC to reduce the price. (cos they will, wont they?)

  3. To give you a Garmin Virb sense of scale, it’s about the size of an Etrex.

  4. I had to look up ‘biomass’ cos I thought it might be poo. but it’s twigs and stuff so that’s a relief.

  5. I bet dried poo will work tho, I’m off out to collect some 😉

  6. I saw a buiLite stove in the local LCS a few months back – Lovely piece of kit

  7. Uneven ground, a naked flame and a pot of boiling water balanced on top. The perfect place to charge a phone.

  8. “Project Singletrack New Van” – nice angle.
    Looking forward to the “Project Singletrack Private Jet” feature in the future. Perfect for those last minute trips to the Alps 🙂

  9. Only problem with the Ford are Ford Mainstealers. 2nd in line come the Revolution.

  10. Goodness gracious. “1180mm Shimano BR596 brakes” on the Whyte. Are you stealthing a new rotor standard on us?

  11. Will Madison be doing the Virb as they already do GoPro?

  12. Madison is happy doing GoPro, so the Virb seems to be going through Garmin UK itself.

  13. Like the look of the van, 5 people plus 5 bikes – perfect for road trips! Mega tr looks smart too.

  14. Not sure on the colour of the van, its a bit… meh

  15. I tried the coffee from Pact. It was quite nice!

    Unfortunately I paid full price but you can get the first one for just £1 when you use the code #joyofsix.

    Can cancel the sub anytime, no catches or gimmicks. I gain nothing out of it just spreading the love!
