    I’ve just bought myself a new 2019 Mega 290 frame. Was advertised as 160 rear travel but I did my research and worked out they are actually 155mm rear travel for 2019 models (did this before buying from a major online retailer).
    However, when it arrived, it clearly staes “150mm” on the back of the seat tube.

    Has anyone else got a 2019 (or 2018) model that shows 155mm on the frame?

    There is a load of contradicting info on the web about the 2019 Mega 290 bikes. A lot of info says 155mm rear travel and 65.5 degree HA.Other info says 150mm rear with 66 degree head angle.

    It doesn’t sound like much of a difference, but I’m wondering whether I’ve been sold a 2018 frame as a 2019??

    Thanks in advance for any info/opinions. Cheers

    The 2019 (and 2018) frame is 150mm and 66 HA.

    The 2020 frame was slightly revised to have 160mm of travel and a slacker HA.

    And the 2021 frame is the new shape that was released a few weeks ago

    Thanks enigmas. I found plenty of info on the web that states 155mm and 65.5 for the 2019. Including nukeproof’s own website and material. And yet I have a frame that clearly has 150mm written on it.

    I suspect they changed specs part way through the model year.
