We caught up with Laura Rossin at the final round of the Superenduro to take a closer look at her Nukeproof Mega 27.5 / 29" bike. Laura Rossin runs her own team, Soul Cycles, which allows her to choose all of the parts she runs. She’s recently chosen to put a 29 wheel up front and keep the 27.5 in the back; she told me it’s high up front, which makes it feel more like a downhill bike. The shock has a soft tune, for extra grip and comfort. Laura also has an angleset in to reduce the head angle to 64-degrees.
Laura won the Superenduro Series overall last weekend in Abetone after looking super fast all year and comfortable on this new hybrid bike.
