    Yeah not too many on these forums. Surprising considering how great the current Megas perform.

    After years of ridding bike park specific DH rigs I wanted to switch to something that I could ride anywhere, included extended climbing, but still rip the DH and bike park the way I love. After a bunch of research I went with the Nukeproof Mega 290.

    Totally in love with this machine! Climbs like a goat, rips like a DH bike!

    Why aren't thesee around more? They seem like a great bang for the buck.

    With that said, any info anyone can give about why this bike would be better than others and why it's not around more would be helpful. I'm strongly considering buying the Scout 290 Comp.

    Website has some interesting info re, their history.

    Sam Hill rides for them in the EWS.

    Pull the trigger you went regret it

    I heard about them through CRC.

    First purchase was a Generator AM rim, then another Generator DH rim - these were for my former 650b mule.

    Then I bought a Rear hub, (FS 29er) it had some issues with the pawls - 6 months and they packed it in.

    I gave them the benefit of the doubt on that one.

    When my FS 29er-s rear triangle started cracking up. I went about hunting for an in between bike.

    Something that fit my budget, that accepted all my FS 29er parts & had similar geo.

    Initially I was planning a 12 month hiatus from full squish. Now I know how awesome the Scout 290 is, I'll likely ride it until it gives up the ghost

    My brain is already contemplating acquiring another frame... i.e. the Banshee Prime.

    But, I can wait...

    Pretty happy there is a devoted thread to our favourite bikes.

    I purchased mine in March/April this year and I am very happy about it. I like to just look at it sometimes. Something about hardtails just appeals. I was skeptical about the 290 at first but after being recommended one by another person on this forum I couldn't be happier.

    I didn't start this year a big rider but I am since getting this bike. The week I got it I took it to Thredbo for a ride down the AM track. I'm a novice and this track was so much fun. The bike ate it up. 290FTW!

    Ill get some pics up later

    Good to hear you're enjoying the 290...

    Mines a bit lame at the mo - rear wheel is with CRC for a Warranty claim & I'm waiting on bits to arrive to rebuild an old wheel.

    Guess my 2017 Giant Reign will have to suffice for the mean time.

    Just moved to Canberra, my nation's capital. Turns out there is a fair few tracks close by which is very nice. Went out to Mt Stromlo yesterday and had a blast around on the scout. Such fun.
    It climbs as well as it descends. I'm not skilled enough to get the most out of the bike but I had heaps of fun.
    Here it is with my other favourite thing with wheels.

    I bought mine from CRC and a bunch of other stuff. I've found them to be pretty good. What's their warranty claim process like?

    Also, how do you like the extra travel on your fork? Can't say I'm looking for more on mine yet but curious.

    I got the frame only (290) & built it up with parts from my former Transition Bandit 29.

    I also got the wheel from CRC i.e. Easton Heist 24. The build is awesome still running true despite being on an AM HT.

    But, the hub seems to be a weak point.

    Still going through Warranty process i.e. waiting to hear from CRC what they'll be doing.

    Got out to Stromlo again today. Lots to explore up there.
    I'm pretty impressed with how the bike climbs. I did some of the fire roads and more technical switchbacks and it smashed it. I only have my 26" to compare to but the 29er seems to handle that's stuff really well.

    Finally finished this up (minus the front Zee brake that has been forever backordered). Had my shop bleed the rear brake bled and tune the gears properly yesterday and then took it on it's maiden voyage last night. Absolutely loved this bike (which is great because I've been spending buckets of $ on it for the last 6 months just hoping I wouldn't hate it). Only did about 5 miles or so thru the neighborhood but it it a lot more forgiving than I was thinking it would be. Though that could be down to the incredibly plush Fox Factory 34's or the 25mm DT EX471's wrapped in beefy 2.3" and 2.5" tubeless exo rubbers. No creaks or pops, so pretty damn happy how the first bike I ever built from the ground up has turned out! Stoked to take it out this weekend and get it dirty!

    Post Your Nukeproof...-nukeproofscoutalmostfinished.jpg

    EDIT: Got it dirty. Absolutely love how this bike rides! Really couldn't be happier! This thing is snappy af, very confidence-inspiring on the downs and climbs like a goat!

    I've never understood this. Love Nukeproof, but buying a bike because a pro wins on it is stupid.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    It's not necessarily just because a pro won, but because the brand gains more exposure when you're on top.

    That and people will see the brand as a more viable option to stack up to the big names in America. YT got Gwin and now everything is sold out because people the see the bikes as more quality since he is racing on the same frame you can buy. People know they will not be buying junk if a top level guy is placing well with it. I race the big mountain enduro series and atleast a third of the bikes there are SB6c because of Rude killing it on one.

    This seems like the perfect place to ask this question, apologies if it isn't.

    I'm actually considering buying a Nukeproof Mega 275 frame and transferring all of my parts from my Chromag Stylus to it. Been riding the stylus into the ground but it's time to upgrade to a FS based on how aggressive i've been. Was looking into the Knolly Warden, Santa Cruz Bronson, YT Jeffsy, Commencal Meta AM, and Transition Patrol. Mostly because I have a 160mm DVO Diamond i'd like to find a home for and it would fit nicely with these bikes. My fork is also cut down a little shorter than it should have been, which means some brands, like Ibis and Yeti, are completely off the table with their longer head tubes. All of the frames seem to be $1200(Commencal) to 2000+.

    Stumbled upon the Nukeproof a few days ago. It has nearly perfect geometry and can take my DVO Diamond easily. Everything except the chainstays and the reach seem similar to my Stylus. The reach is about the same as a Cannondale Trigger, which I've rented a few times up at Kingdom Trails VT, so i'm not worried about that either.

    My question is this, is it worth it to pull the trigger on the Nukeproof Mega for $500-$1k less than the brands above, or just save some money up and purchase them at a later date? What advantages do the other bikes i've mentioned have over the Nukeproof, if any?

    dude, the Mega is a badass bike at any price, heck they should probably raise the prices just so people stop thinking of it as a "discount" bike. If you like it, buy it.

    I was pretty dead set on dropping big bucks on a Yeti SB5.5 or an Evil Wreck, until I found out about the mega and fell in love with it. Glad i did. I like my 290 significantly more than everything else I test rode, and now with over 250 miles on it I still think its the $hit and even if i was spending your moms money, i'd get the same bike.

    As for "advantages" of higher priced bikes vs. the nuke... not really any. differences sure, but thats more a matter of taste than any real advantage.

    Sure, its aluminum... but for what its worth, the mega frame is even lighter than some carbon frames (evil in particular), and appears to be durable as hell. more than half of my millage has been bike park.

    Sam Hill has been ridding (slaying it on) a Carbon version updated with a metric shock, I imagine the aluminum frames are going at good discount to clearance them out before the carbon hits the market.

    I'll buy the new carbon frame when it comes out (assuming its lighter). I hope the prices stay reasonable, but they could charge prices commensurate with the competition and i'll pay it.

    been trying a coil on mine for the bike park, but i'll continue using the Monarch for climbing.

    One of the reasons i'm hesitant is that the Mega still uses 12x142 in the rear and my wheelset is 12x148. Combined with the fact that i'd have to ship it from overseas. The price difference between buying something like a Santa Cruz Bronson frame and the Mega frame end up being a wash since i'd have to pay for shipping and a new wheelset.

    Just trying to find more information about it, it's not a popular brand here in the states at all.

    right on, well price being a wash, go with the one that appeals to you more.

    Compared to the Bronson, they are certainly different machines. Geometry wise the mega certainly leans a bit more toward a gravity orientation and is slacker, longer reach, quite longer chain-stay and thus wheelbase.

    I haven't compared a 27.5 mega to a Bronson, but having compared my 29" mega to a buddies Bronson, its pretty clear that all of those geo tweeks add up to a bike that is quite a bit different.

    no, they are not popular over here thats for sure. So far this season I've only seen two more in the wild, they were British guys on vacation in Moab, both on Mega 275's.
    caught up to them at the end of the Enchilada.

    How does the Nukeproof climb, and how well does it tackle technical sections? Living in New England, it's all climbing, technical sections, rock gardens, and roots.

    Vs something like a Pivot Mach 6, SC Bronson / Nomad, or Specialized Enduro?

    I'd say it climbs pretty well, about as you'd expect from a 30 pound, 150mm bike with a horst link rear end. Probably not the best climbing bike in the world, but good enough that its my go-to machine here in Colorado. I have a 23 pound XC 29er hardtail, but It hasn't seen daylight since I brought the nuke home.

    I would say that it does not really excel at low-speed technical climbing, I think being so long and slack its just out of its element a bit when things get slow and trialzy if you know what i mean. If you can keep some speed going, its amazing what it will pop up on top of though. Note, do remember i'm on a 290, so a 275 might be a bit more comfortable at low speed. its all worth noting that I don't really -care- about cleanly climbing every bit, i'm just earning my turns and getting to the top so i can rip down.

    As for the technical descending, rock gardens and roots... thats what the nuke is made for. My Mega eats that stuff up like a DH bike, recklessly fast when it gets steep and gnarly and loves plowing through rock gardens. Its fast, stable and confidence inspiring. Just as my XC bike has been collecting dust in the basement, so has my 200mm dual crown DH bike. about 50% of my ridding is bike park and the mega just munches down DH trails.

    the bikes that you list, and the mega, are all very very good bikes that will all excel on similar terrain. I'd say in general the mega's geo is a touch more aggressive and thus leans a bit more towards descending.

    In a couple of weeks myself and a bunch of friends will be heading up to the PNW for a bike trip, we'll have a Mega 290, an Enduro, a Mach 6, a Bronson, as well as an Insurgent, a Following, a Patrol and a Ripley. I'm sure most days of ridding will end with beers and much discussion about the varying and minor differences between how each of this rigs handle the days trails, but in all reality all of these bikes are nearly equally capable on most trails, heading up or down, and all going to be a blast to ride.

    Hey guys. My stock WTB i23 rear rim is officially FUBAR. Well, 2 mechanics say its unsalvageable. Any suggestions for a new one? I'm 95kg, 210lbs riding aggressive AM on my Scout 290.

    I can recommend Easton Heist rims ^^ just not their in house bearings/freehub...

    Rode a Heist 24 on the rear of my 290 & it never needed truing.

    I was thinking of heist rim with hope or Nukeproof hub.

    I'd go for the Hope...

    I've experienced pawl failure on Nukeproof hub =(

    A mate has a rear wheel w/ Hope hub & he said it's easy to service i.e. change out bearings.

    If CRC/Easton ever get back to me w/ Easton Heist 24 rear wheel decision!?

    I'll either keep it as a spare or rebuild wheel w/ different hub.

    Should have my ZTR Flow rim built up with a Novatec D882SB hub in a couple of weeks for my Scout.

    Hope Pro 4's ftw. They're extremely easy to service (literally just pull apart) and roll fast with solid engagement (not as fast as say a King or i9, but after riding both, I didn't notice any real world difference). I'm running the Pro4's on both my bikes, and they'll go on my next bike as well.
