Size? (Frame, clothing, wheel size etc. You can pick 3)
Will post in UK

Nukeproof Giga 290, size XL with a build that is the same as the Mega Pro models.


At 6’3″ I thought that the XL would be the perfect size for me but as soon as I sat on it I realised it was too small and then being easily led astray by my mates who said that a Giga is way too much of a bike for my mediocre riding skills I bought a Mega 290 Pro in XXL instead.


Everything on the bike is brand new and unridden apart from the forks that I used for 2 rides on my Mega but decided that I am a Fox forks person and swapped them to this bike.

There are some marks on the fork graphics that I have tried to show in the pictures.


Wheels are currently still with tubes fitted, tubeless valves are in the owners box.


I can ship anywhere in the UK for £40.


All the reviews say the Giga is a fantastic bike with MBR giving it 5/5

“All of the travel, none of the drawback.”

Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon Factory review


Singletrack gave it the Editors choice with the journalist even offering to buy it with his own money

“Why is it so good? Well, firstly because a 170mm travel Super Enduro bike shouldn’t really climb as well as the Giga does. It’s not Tallboy fast, but it isn’t Commencal Meta 29 slow either. For a big burly bike, it ticks off climbs with ease. Then when you do hit the top, you have a whole 170mm of front and rear travel to enjoy on the way back down again! It’s just so much fun. Nukeproof managed to make this big travel bike fun, lively and engaging – it’s a bike you ride, not something that takes you for a ride.”


And the glowing reviews go on, Enduro Mag awarded it best bike park bike
