Expirience with the Nukeproof Mega 290 Carbon ELITE

Nukeproof Mega 290 Carbon ELITE Review The 170 mm trail on the fork qualify the Enduro of Nukeproof for on extremely technical trails use. With a flat 64 degree head tube angle and a long reach, the geometry corresponds to the current trend. When sitting in the saddle, the posture is neither overly sporty, nor uber-comfortable. This should make the Mega 290 Carbon ELITE suite the taste of most bikers. For friends of sending it on rowdy trails: the last argument is still the strongest, because the harmonious geometry and the grippy tires cause you to smile from top to bottom in the descent.
