New for 2013, the Mega TR, the newest addition to the “Mega” family takes our highly acclaimed Mega AM and trims back the travel and weight to provide a more athletic trail friendly chasis. Rear wheel travel is set at 130mm making it the perfect option for ‘one-bike’ singletrack riders who like to tackle the gnarl but want a rig they can pedal all day.

Don’t want the full 160mm of a dedicated Enduro rig but still want the option of a versatile frame that can be built burly if needs must?

Check out the TR.

Featuring a lighter custom-hydroformed tubeset than the AM to shave off some weight; the Mega TR is designed to take forks with travel between 140mm and 160mm, making it just as capable of tackling a marathon event or full day of trail centre runs as it is an Alpine Enduro.

Just like the original Mega the TR also uses our 'Erosion' linkage giving a smooth, progressive suspension action with a well controlled mid-stroke to avoid wallowing under pedal loads – the perfect platform for a true trail bike that needs to climb as well as descend.

Oversize main bearing pivots are contained in a bespoke CNC-machined Bottom Bracket assembly to ensure alignment, durability and precision, while the chainstay design gives clearance for a front derailleur and compatibility with all leading models of ISCG - mounted chain retention systems.

Our aggressive trail/enduro geometry is based around a 67deg head angle and 73.5deg seat angle, while a 44mm headset standard keeps the front of the bike light. Nukeproof headset options allow flush internal, flush top/external bottom, tapered or 1.5in headset compatibility, while a 135mm/142mm x 12mm thru-axle keeps things planted at the rear.
The Mega TR also features removable cable guides for a ‘gravity dropper’ adjustable seat post, as well as internal cable routing for a RockShox Reverb Stealth post.

We have also added bottle cage mounts to meet the requests of enduro riders.

A true do-it-all platform for riders who refuse to be categorised, we reckon the TR has Your Next Bike written all over it.

Nukeproof Mega TR Frame Features:

  • Trail/Enduro frame
  • Custom hydroformed T6 6061 Aluminium tubeset
  • 130mm travel
  • Fork range: 140mm to 160mm

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great ride but poor quality finishing This bike is brilliant to ride and pretty much bomb proof but the paint is very fragile. After 9 months mine doesn't look great. The cable guide screws are made of cheese and bearing sealing could be better. 26 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by bigger wheels !!!!! not for me Im a big bloke , 17 st and built like a 47 year old outhouse . I bend bikes for a laugh , nukeproof sounds like a brand for me . out of our little group im not the fastest downhill , or the fastest hauling my bulk uphill either . This frame builds into an amazing game changer of a bike ..... now Im flying downhill like a loon, pin sharp steering and amazing compliance on the rough stuff (we call the peak district our back garden) . I expected this bike to do this , what I didn't expect was how good it is on the ups . BUY ONE NOW , I did and im thinking of marrying It :-) 29 August 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good frame, poor build quality I got this frame and everything looked good at first however half of the cable guide bolt holes were threaded resulting in the nuts having their threads stripped. I had to re-tap all the holes and replace the bolts, now all the guides are ok. From reading other reviews this doesn't seem un-common which is a shame. Also have play in the rear triangle which I understand there is a warranty kit for to fix however nobody from CRC has responded to me when inquiring about getting it. 19 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really like this frame I got this frame about a month ago, and I really like the frame does everything you would want. Goes down and uphill really well. Really fun going downhilling.. Bike feels really light while riding.. Love the way it jumps... But the suspension locks off and goes back up the hill easy! All that said my favourite bike... But I'm not sure if it is worth the asking price of £1200... But on special offer perfect bike! 22 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent all round trail frame! Frame has very good build quality and detailing. Easily comparable to frames costing twice as much that I also considered purchasing. Cable routing options are practical and very well though out. Factory facing of the headset, BB shell and brake mounts was to a very good standard. Geometry is ideal for aggressive all round Uk trail riding. My medium frame in Silver including rear shock, maxle, gear hanger and seat clamp weighed in at approx 3.48kg. 01 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good frame good frame at reasonable price, perfect geometry for enjoy in each trail, jump.... not so good in painting quality and finishes. Some threads for screws, for example, are wrong... 23 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great frame Great frame, looks good in yellow,rides as good as anything else i've owned.building up as 1x10 all the bike you need. 21 June 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Fährt sich top, aber Verarbeitung ist ein Flopp Der Rahmen fährt sich wirklich super. Jedoch hatte ich direkt einen undichten Dämpfer. Schweissnähte an den Linkages waren nicht sauber ausgeführt und haben geschliffen. Die Buchsen hatten nach 2 Tagen spiel. Das darf bei einem Rahmen in der Preisklasse nicht sein. 12 June 2014

Answers

Answer: 
You need to adjust the air pressure in the shock to achieve the correct 'sag' for your weight. On the Mega about 30% is recommended. Below is a video which demonstrates the best way to set up your sag.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHtV...

The remaining settings on your shock should be adjusted after. Rebound is rider preference. I would always suggest that you set your rebound to the slowest setting and then add about 4 clicks. This is generally a good starting point.

Answer: 
The simple way to set the Rear shock up is to do a Sag test,
Move the o ring on the shock up to the body, sit on bike with usual ride gear (for weight purposes) with shock unlocked ie for decent.
Get off bike and check the amount of travel used by your weight alone= sag amount
This is "usually" 20% of the total travel, if the o ring has moved more, put some air in, if less release some.
NOW,,,,,personally I choose my sag at around 15% but the bike may skip around a bit more so its all about preferance

Answer: 
Start at 25% sag adjust as per your preferences. This frame is dead simple & effective. So no need for fussy set ups as required by more complex twin link frames. They may work better but WILL require lots more set up and therefore knowledge.
This is one of the reasons for us normal real world riders makes this frame ACE!

Frame, seat post clamp (not a QR, perfect for a dropper, if you dont use a dropper a 34.9 QR clamp such as a hope is perfect.
Cable guides, clips and screws.
Direct mount front mech hanger inc fixings to frame and bolt to mech.
142 x 12mm rear axle (maxle) you need to buy spacers which are wheel specific not frame specific. I use Hope pro 3 hubs which are 12mm ready and just needed the spacers

The FSA Orbit MX headset is known as a Traditional Headset (34mm Outer Diameter) where as the Mega required a Semi-Integrated (44mm Outer Diameter) headset.

For use with a Straight 1 1/8" Fork Steerer the suggested headset below would be ideal.

Answer: 
Direct mount M785 allows you to connect from below or above. Best to connect from above as the frame DOES NOT have under shell cable guide (which in any case gets damaged and dirty and then does not work properly.

The cable guides on the frame make it easy to make a really neat and tidy cable install of both brakes & shifters...

No. I purchased XT 2 x 10 crank set which came with a new BB. Its a 73mm shell so you only need one of the supplied 2.5mm spacers. I did find I needed a good dolop of greese on the threads because it is new and the threads are deep so that in itself bods well for durability
