@therealtylerdurden: I'm from the UK - we don't all want to eat pig crap before / after a ride.

Nukeproof Mega 275 Carbon - First Ride
@jollyXroger: CRC and Hotlines though under the same ownership don't operate as one entity - try and order a 2017 bike from hotlines, let me tell you there isn't a lot left, CRC have just taken some of the sale stock for themselves.

Nukeproof Mega 275 Carbon - First Ride
Horst link is 'FSR' but this will have almost no relevance as to its suitability for heavy riders, its not the type of suspension but how it is applied - one could be super progressive, one could be very linear, depends on the design You just need to get a new shock tune (unless you are a really really big guy or so obese you are outside of what the shock is capable of handling in which case it sounds like a coil with huge spring rate for you) on a modern bike and you will probably be OK - early 2000's was a long time ago....

Nukeproof Mega 275 Carbon - First Ride
@jollyXroger: Its all cost related and their biggest marketing machine rides a medium with a 435 reach and likes it - So thats that! I am sure if cost was no object they would have stuck an extra size in and included an XXL but these things will sell out before they are even physically in the warehouse - they wont need to worry about what sells best as the whole lot will be gone long before the end of 2018.

Nukeproof Mega 275 Carbon - First Ride
@jollyXroger: I suppose its a very specific type of riding - sounds almost like trials riding out in the woods to me, not typical of the kind of riding a 160mm full suspension is intended for I suppose. Anyway, can always size down if the frame has a suitably long seat tube.

@blank-fire: Maybe his head is still in the 70's when the company was the same?

@WaterBear: The launch pads are really good, agree with that - They are pretty cheap too compared to a $120 pair of shorts, I am good with maufacturing parts out of metal but clothes I have no idea so maybe the materials / tech challenge is much higher, or they can just get away with it.

A £10.00 (or less) 'active wear' t-shirt from sporst direct or similar will work loads better than a cotton t-shirt - I ride in a T-shirt pretty much when its not either really hot or really wet and cold. If a cotton t-shirt gets wet you end up with this cold, wet, heavy thing stuck to you thats going to take ages to dry out.

For me to get a jacket for rainy weather and one for 'windy' weather, a few pairs of shorts, a couple of jerseys and gloves and a pair of riding shoes it would come to well well over $1000.....
