    2017 Nukeproof Scout build

    Picked up this frame earlier in the year for a bargain price from the Chain Reaction eBay store - they generally sell returns and bikes that they've taken parts of for warranty etc.



    This was a Sport model that had been used to take parts off. It came with some Suntour 100mm air forks, stem and square taper BB.
    Paid the princely sum of £150 for this - frames were £375 on there own new....

    The build is going to be:
    2017 Nukeproof Scout frame with Nukeproof headset - medium
    Marzocchi 350CR 160 forks
    Shimano XT 1*11 with 11-42t cassette and 30t chain ring
    Brand-X 125mm dropper with Bontrager lever
    Superstar EX23 wheels
    On-One Chunky Monkey and Smorgasbord Trail Extreme tyres - tubeless
    SLX brakes with Uberbike floating rotors
    Nukeproof Sam Hill bars and zero stem
    Lizard skin Peaty grips
    Hope head doctor, grip doctors and seat clamp

    Taped the frame with Heli-Tape to give it a bit of protection.




    Started putting it together the other day. Spent a pleasant couple of hours in the sunshine building it.





    Just got chain, rotors, pedals and tubeless sealant to do, set up forks and then all ready to go.

    Finished the build today and took it for a shakedown.
    Couple of minor tweaks to make but pleased with how it's turned out.

    Thanks all.
    Rides really well - forgotten how different riding a HT to full suss is.
    Despite been quite slack and having 160 forks it climbs better than I expected - did some step tech climbs today and it handled them really well.
    Quite a lively ride - need to sort out my tyre pressures as still a bit on the hard side.
    Quite 'poppy' so getting the front wheel up is fairly easy.
    Love the XT shifting - nice and light, and the ability to go up or down multiple gears with one push is handy.
    So far I'm really enjoying it - even though it through me OTB earlier today lol.

    A couple of upgrades over the last couple of months - swapped the Nukeproof Neutron wheels off my Mega with 2.4" Michelin Wild Enduro's and swapped the brakes for a set of Zee's.
    Tidied up the cable routing on the bars too.
