- My new bike :)
Built it on Friday afternoon then did a day at Antur Stiniog DH centre in North Wales on Saturday.
Lovely bike, nice and light to ride, handled the technical stuff with aplomb, forks are great but most surprising was how good the rear shock felt. HRII was fantastic on the front and even the rear tyre was happy in the sloppy stuff.
Finish on the frame was very good, all bolts nicely torqued, BB height perfect for me. I even like the cable routing – full outers for the win. Shame the name is such a pubescent boys webdream; non biking friends/family laughed at the name Nukeproof, so thank god only the frame has it emblazoned all over it – not being a snob, it’s just an awful name!Posted 3 years ago
one garage (with rot);
two wheelbarrows / tabletop setup.
Agree on the mudguards but that front one is a revelation.
The colour looks lovely in the flesh, really pleased! Agree on the fork colour but I think the dual position only come in white lowers..??
Grips where off the old bike and I likes them, although black to finish it off nicely.
Seat at that angle because it’s how my body (balls) like it after 23 years of mountain biking 🙂
Thanks for the good feedback, roll on Friday for it’s next outingPosted 3 years ago
Mosey, I got 10% off and a free hope headset at Bike Active, pretty pleased with that, no doubt it’ll be even cheaper at CRC shortly, that’s generally how it works.Posted 3 years ago
Really torn between this and the TR, for my riding I’m glad to have gone more travel.
I was going to hold out for the new Alpine but it would probably have been another £500 and that paid for the forks.
