Nukeproof mega TR?
Selling because Transition have made me an offer I can’t refuse on crash replacement for the old Covert. I can’t have both and the Covert edges it as it can do DH days (mind you the Tr was ace at BPW)
The TR is a better all day bike but will have to get used to dragging the Covert round again.
It’s a Medium and will be frame only (with headset and nicely matching grips/seat)Posted 3 years agost colinSubscriber
Evening. Yes, owned my TR for about two months. Great bike, really like it. Climbs well and although it’s not the lightest bike, all day rides aren’t a problem. Recently got RS Revelations and the match the rear shock better than the vanillas I had before.
Buy one, you’ll not regret it.Posted 3 years agobullroarSubscriber
I love my BFe …… could do with a bit of rear travel just for comfort. The reviews say it feels like a hardcore hardtail with some squish. Sounds ideal..”/
That is why I am also looking at a Mega TR, have you checked the sizing? I ride a small BFe but the TR is best (for me) at Medium. I’m also considering a Saracen Ariel 14X frame, any views on that option appreciated.Posted 3 years ago
Sorry I’m 5ft10 on a large, standover is fine for me. If you order just the frame I would strongly suggest you check all bolt holes thoroughly as half mine for the cable guides were threaded. I need to re-tap the when I pick up a die.
If I could have been bothered I should have sent it back but i’d spent 3 hours building the bike up.Posted 3 years agodeanfbmMember
I have one, 3 of my friends have them, really good, rapid, fun, capable.
Comes with cheap bearings, no other quality issues to report amongst us.
Debatable where the sweet spot for the forks is. I’ve run mine pikes at 160, 150 and now 140 on it. 160 did upset the climbing a bit, travel felt too mismatched, got a bit steep on steep stuff. Settled on 150mm and offset shockware for a bit, so lowered the bb a couple of mm and would have put the HA at around 66*, absolute rocket on serious terrain, too much for a trail bike on trail bike terrain really. 140 with normal shock hardware brought the fun back again trail riding, still feel just as confident on steep gnar.
Will happily do a 50 mile XC route and go ride some DH tracks on it the following day.Posted 3 years agop7richSubscriber
Love my 26″ version. Had mine for c600 miles. Bought frame only. Night and day compared to the Santa Cruz it replaced. I’m 6’2″ on an XL and standover never an issue. Running mine with 150mm Floats too. No major quality issues for me. Just had to replace some bushes at the back end to remedy a recognised creaking issue. Oh, and the paint chips if you just look at it. All this pales into insignificance alongside the fun i’ve had on it.Posted 3 years ago
Rick@twelvebikes your link does not work. This should do it.
But irrelevant for me as you don’t have any 26″ frames…Posted 3 years agoAlexSubscriber
I have an 26in AM from the CRC sale early this year. I’m 5ft11 with 31inch legs and there is lots of stand over on the medium. I bought the AM as it had a longer TT than the TR. Might not be the same for 650b. Great bike, build quality is a bit iffy but I paid about £700 for mine and it’s been brilliant fun to ride both here and in the alps.Posted 3 years agodenmark2Member
Bought my nukeproof mega tr275(2013) from crc a few weeks ago and have got few rides, love the snappiness when pedalling, great handling and jumps really well. im 191cm and bought a 18,5″ frame, runs a 70mm stem and it feels just right…i tightend all of the bolts in the links as there was som play in the rear end, now the only problem is a leaking rock shox monarch damper…Posted 3 years ago
