Hi guys , I'm looking at getting a Nukeproof Scalp as replacement for my cracked Gambler and was wondering if there is anyone who owns one that can share your experiences with the frame ?
Is there any gremlins I should know of ?
Would be nice to hear from some one whos owned one for a season.

Thanks

Leon

EDIT : I can't seem to find a Nukeproof owners thread anywhere so I''m going to make this into one.

Feel free to share your Nukeproof photos and experiences Smile


To Pinkbike Moderators , could you move this to the correct section if it's not OK here please ?

Thank you

I don't own one but looked into getting one and for the money the spec is amazing. Far cheaper than a lot of bikes with similar spec.

£2600 gets you a lot of bike with the scalp

Gotta be some owners on this forum surely Smile

There are a few I've seen. I think it's cause it's only 2012 they have done full bikes that they're not as popular yet. Reviews are that they're amazing in the air and can corner super quick while being super plush and fast on rocky sections

My buddy has one and it seems really good.

Ive got one and love it! Ccdb works amaxing with the frame and it does corner a beast, although on steep technical bits it does seem to need to be going fast to work well!

Would give you a better review but i just rode it for the first time down a proper dh track and my fork decided to be a dick and majorly need serviced Frown

Same. I've gotta wait till the end of june after my holiday to get one or the mrs will kill me haha

Cane Creek is what took me to the bike, shock looks insanely good

Yeah the value for money makes you wonder why other companys get away with charging so much.
what are you planning on getting ?

Eh the scalp pro model with the cane creek. I'd rather pay the extra and get the best one haha
