- Ti slackline, or keep nukeproof mega?
I have an unhealthy yearning that won’t go away for a Stanton slackline ti, I’ve currently got a nukeproof mega which I love, but the slackline keeps looking at me, in a very seductive, you need me in your life kinda way!!!!Posted 4 years ago
I can’t afford to keep both, I ride 1×10, mainly Xc and trail centres, not afraid of a reasonable drop off, and am pretty quick on the downs but would like to be better going up!! Gonna run it with pikes if I get one, or the 150mm revs I’ve got on the nukeproof, which maybe better suited. What do you think people? Do I give in to the ti side???

Basically IMO the bikes a ripper, ride Xc on mine, race dh on it and pretty much everything in between. The faster you ride it the more compliant it is, not as comfy as a full suss, not as fast down as your mega no doubt but a shed load of fun. Love mine.
Op – based in Cornwall, if you happen to be local your welcome to have a shot. Will also be at fod mini enduro in a few weeks racing ht category on it.
The souls a different beast, great Xc trail bikes but too flexy when pushed hard (well mine both were, was taking chunks out of the inside of the chainstay with the180mm rear brake rotor which confirmed the back end was as flexy as it felt)! Bfe lacked that something but steady frames for the money.Posted 4 years ago
I have but only briefly, same great geometry which is the key to the slackline for me. A few of my mates have steel ones, 2 have the older 853 version and one has the new 631 frame. If the ti is stretching the budget too far then a steel version and a few choice nice parts would probably be a better idea.Posted 4 years agoARTSubscriber
Tsk .. you stil goin’ on about this 😉 I have a mega and a Ti hardtail. The hardtail in proper lovely and a brilliant ride, but the mega gets more riding, cause at the end of the day suspension really is great. If you can afford it do both; if you can’t yet, then wait and save.Posted 4 years agomrblobbyMember
Definitely worth keeping the mega frame. Mine only really comes out for trips to the alps, but it’s still a great bike to have for the rare occasions i want it. by coincidence for uk trails I go with an mmmbop! Is a bit harsh I guess but rewards the effort you put in 🙂Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Steel slackline is mint, Ti one should be double mint.
If you liked the Bop, try and track down a Ragley Ti, obviously everyone recommends what they own but they are bloomin spectacular. All the good stuff of the bop and none of the horrible drawbacks. The only downside is the lysnkey build quality, relatively likely to crack it seems…Posted 4 years agojohnnyboy666Member
A rare beast is for sale. Could have the ti you desire with all the other bike bits as well! Keep your mega AND get this.
