Does anyone with the 2021 Mega 290 in XL size mind posting a picture of the bike? Big Grin

Check out Chris Ross on Insta. He works for NP and rides the new bike in XL and has posted lots of pictures of it.

Its an XL 29" not sure about weight but it feels comfortable (not overly heavy)

First time posting, but wanted to share my new whip, its a custom spec sort of halfway between the comp and pro model what do you lot reckon?

What size/wheel size is this? Looks nice. Any idea of the weight?

anyone running dual crowns on their mega?

I've given this thought (lowered 40s) but I think NP have stated that this would void the warranty.

Possibly to do with insufficient structure to absorb bump-stop impact

That's what I read. Ultimately that probably wouldn't be an issue for me. I want DCs simply for the stiffness of the 40s (I'm currently around 270lb) rather than being used on a full-on DH track

Anyone fit a 200mm dropper to their Mega?

I have a 2019 Mega 290 XL. Came with a 170mm dropper but I have 284mm of exposed post above the seat collar. Brand X 200mm dropper is 559mm long, so I would need roughly 275 mm of room in my seattube. The XL has a decent seattube length just not sure if it will work. Anyone tried?

I have a 200mm reverb on my 2019 mega 290 large. It bottoms out with about 30mm out of the frame from the collar. The length on the brand x is almost identical to the reverb so it should go all the way in on the XL without any issues

Awesome, looking forward to this upgrade! Thanks for letting me know.

geo is spot on!, set-up the link in the most progressive position, add a small 5mm off-set headset to enlarge the reach a little(and the wb, at the same time) and make a roomier cockpit, mt7s, assegais and that's about it.
ordered my frame yesterday. I'll make it x11 as it will be mostly for going dh and going up on fireroads. 12 speeds seems useless in this case.

Which do you think will be raced in the ews out of the mega and the giga?
