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 seatpost, 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.
