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

Nukeproof Mega 290 Worx large frame finshed in raw brushed silver, although it is a paint finish rather than a true raw aluminium finish. I only bought the bike in summer from CRC, but unfortunately it is more of a bike than I need (I need to grow a pair!) hence it is for sale.

It has been ridden predominantly in the Lake District and it shows signs of normal use and these can be seen in the photos – a few scratches and some heel rub but no dents.

The bike comes with a top notch Super Deluxe Ultimate Coil shock with a choice of the origianl 450lb spirng or a 550 or 550lbs spring. I’m happy to seel with all three if you don’t mind syumping up a wee bit of extra cash! Also included are a Nukeproof headset with recent bottomo bearing, seat clamp, rear axle and mech hanger.

In January I built up a Nukeproof Reactor and stripped the Mega. With little else to do I replaced all the frame pivot bearings, although they didn’t have any play they were feeling a little notchy. Frame is ready to go out and play as soon as we are allowed out to play!
