Best article is online at Park Tool. In theory you could count chain links. But few mortals have tried this and come out sane. Mechanics I've worked with use the Big Big +1 method.

Wrap the chain around the front ring (or only ring) and the largest rear cog without threading it through the rear derailleur. Overlap the ends and add two "half links" (1") and cut it at that point provided the two ends will mate: Two male ends if using a quick link; male and female if using a joining pin. If you need to get a match round upward erring on the side of a longer chain.

Also check small/small the ensure that the chain isn't too long.

Yes you can I currently have a super deluxe coil (non bearing mount) fitted to my 2018 290.

Make sure you measure the mounting hardware of your current shock though as the information on the Nukeproof website and in the owners manual is incorrect. From memory I think it’s a 25x8 front and 30x8 but double check with your own first

Has anyone stuffed a 8.5x2.5(216x63), Vivid Coil into their 2018-2019 Mega 290?

How’s it working out? Has using an oversized shock made any negative changes? How’s the fitment? Would love to see a photo!

Are you planning on going up 20mm in the front with it? It's going to raise the back end almost 15 mm.

On paper, a 290 with 20mm more in the front and a 8.5x2.5 shock should be an absolute monster truck in the rough

With a 3mm offset bushing the overall difference would only be an increase of 3mm to the overall shock length, surely could't be that different, but curious to hear from someone who's done it.

I have a question for this topic. Previously more guys write 172-178 mm rear travel with 216x63 shock.

Where from does this travel ? The Mega 275 with 230x65 shock travel 165 mm. Okey longer chainstay more travel in 290, but not to much the 178 mm travel ?

Posted: Nov 19, 2019 at 15:20 Quote
One divides the original travel by the original stroke length, then multiplied by the new shock length to approximate the travel increase

150/55=2.72
2.72x63=171.8
