    Need Feedback on Nukeproof Reactor 290 Comp Alloy

    Guys - I'm eyeballing the Nukeproof Reactor 290 Comp Alloy, but am not finding any reviews on this bike. If you have experience with this bike, let me know what you think. Just for context - I'm an intermediate trail rider...not an enduro or DH guy. I'm looking for a solid build, good geometry, and something sneaky quiet.

    Ok, just wanted to update all 148 people that viewed this thread.

    So, I did find some reviews on the NP Reactor, however, it was on the carbon version of this bike. From what I gather, it's a solid performer that falls between trail and enduro. According to youtubers, it fairly slack for getting down and holds it's own going up.

    Looking at the NP lineup and specifically the alloy version of this bike that was equipped with entry level parts really made me think hard about laying down $2,500 for something better than my current bike, but may not be what I really want. The reading and youtubing continued...

    After a week's worth of reading, watching and mulling, I settled on the NP Reactor 290 Elite Carbon...yep in Ron Burgundy. Think that was the right choice?
