Video: Sam Hill's Custom Nukeproof Mega 290 - EWS Madeira 2019
@chriskneeland: I guess you should DM Sam to let him know how much of a cheater/bitch he is. It would mean a lot coming from you.

**FREE SHIPPING (see below)** Custom built 2018 Transition Sentinel carbon. Fox factory suspension with SBG spec'd offset and shock tune, SRAM X01 drivetrain. 15 hrs since last suspension service, chain shows 0.2 wear, tires are good. The Reverb could probably use a service soon, that's about it. Some scratches on the seat stay and a mark under the downtube from tailgate shuttles-- basically what you'd expect from a Transition (they have delicate paint & finish). No cracks or chips in the carbon. This bike is an absolute monster-- pedals really well, destroys descents. It's really fun on my local trails in the foothills and I still wouldn't hesitate to enter a DH race with it. Perfect enduro weapon, and still punchy enough in the back to enjoy jump lines and flatter stuff too. I hate to sell it but I'm moving and I need to thin the herd. Shipping included to the continental US! I'll use BikeFlights and it'll be packaged properly in a Santa Cruz shipping box. ______________________________________________ Frame: medium Transition Sentinel Carbon, black powder Fork: Fox Factory RC2 160mm 44mm offset Shock: Fox Factory DPX2 Headset: Cane Creek 40 Series Stem: RaceFace Turbine R 35 (40mm) Bar: Renthal Fatbar 30mm rise Grips: ODI Elite Flow Saddle: ANVL Forge Stealth Seatpost: RockShox Reverb Stealth 1x Remote Brakes: SRAM Code RSC Rotors: SRAM Centerline Shifter: SRAM XO1 Eagle Derailleur: SRAM XO1 Eagle Cassette: SRAM XG 1275 (10-50t) Chain: SRAM XX1 Eagle (Gold) Crank: SRAM Descendent Carbon (170mm) Ring: Raceface Narrow/Wide 34t Wheels: E*Thirteen TRS Tires: Maxxis Minion DHF / DHR Extras: MRP SXg Guide/Guard, spare der hanger, fork token, extra cable port *pedals not included

Bought this helmet for my lady, but she upgraded. (The helmet, not me. Yet.) It's about $130 on Amazon, so $85 seems like a good deal.

Wife's bike, maintained by me. It's perfectly dialed in because she won't stand for anything less. Priced for a beginner/intermediate rider who doesn't want to drop a lot of cash to get a top end bike, or someone who just misses little wheels and wants a snappy trail whip. Head angle with the 150mm Fox 34 is about 66.7 deg, so it's still relevant. Would be a great first bike for a junior rider, woman between 5'3 and 5'8, etc. This was the overall EWS championship bike a mere 4 years ago, and was 3rd at DH Worlds the year before that. I'd wager it's the best 26" trail bike ever made, simply because Yeti held out on the wheel size for so long. So yeah, it's "outdated," but it's an amazing bike at a great price for the right person. Maxxis will never discontinue their 26" Minions and Ardents, so no worries there. All bearings are smooth and pivots have been torqued to spec. Fresh seals and oil for the fork and shock, absolutely no scratches on the stanchions. Brakes were just bled. Brand new chain, zero miles. Both wheels are true enough, no major dings. The only noteworthy wear is one cosmetic spot on the seat stay which happened during a move, and some small chips right at the drive side dropout (see pics for both). All normal stuff. Text with any questions. I live in Folsom but if you're on the west coast (or NV/Tahoe) we can maybe work out a meet up. If you're further away, BikeFlights shipping is cheap and I'll use legit bike box/packing (lots of experience shipping bikes). _________________ FRAME Small Yeti SB66 Carbon, 150mm travel, black/turquoise SUSPENSION Fork: Fox Factory 34 Kashima, CTD model with an updated 2015 damper for more mid support Shock: Fox Factory Float CTD, Boost Valve (55mm of steerer above headset cap, 4x5mm spacers with Thomson stem) DRIVETRAIN Shimano XT shifter & derailleur / XT 11- 40 XT cassette with Wolftooth cog / SLX crank 170mm / RaceFace Narrow Wide 32t ring / New Shimano Chain/ E Thirteen bash ring BRAKES Shimano XT w/ ice tech pads, SLX rotors COCKPIT KS Lev 100mm Thomson X4 stem 50mm Easton Haven carbon bar 720mm (some scratches, I've protected them with nail polish) Cane Creek Forty headset ODI Ruffian grips Saddle is TBD (I don't think my wife wants to part with her Bonty saddle) WHEELS DT X1600, rebuilt the rear with a Velocity Blunt SL rim, both set up tubeless TIRES F: Maxxis High Roller II 2.4 EXO / R: Maxxis Ardent 2.3 EXO both in good shape PEDALS Shimano Saint EXTRAS INCLUDED Wolf Tooth 42 cog (replaces 40t) Original XT cogs if you want to run the stock cassette Original chainrings from the crank XT Front Derailleur Spare SB66C derailleur hangars x 2 ($40 MSRP each) Spare 2.3" Butcher tire with GRID casing (just a nice backup to carry)

5 Things We Learned at EWS Tasmania 2019
@dubod22: I've come to this realization as well. YUGE wheelbase bikes with sixty-nothing degree head angles are designed for safety, not winning. If you're an average rider, you're stoked to just survive rock gardens at speed, so any bike that gives you that superpower is better in your eyes. This is no different than all the Joeys running 45mm i.d. rims 4-5 years ago and raving about how "confident" they felt, when in reality their tires were totally closed down and couldn't be leaned over in a turn at all. We're being sold a bunch of stealth interventions to make up for poor riding skills that detract from the things that actually result in fast riding: cornering and exit speed. But the avg rider doesn't care about those things. They care about plowing rocks, freeride flicks in berms, and riding manuals. So we're getting 420mm chainstays coupled with the front-end of a single crown DH bike, and it's a disaster for front wheel traction because the bikes are so imbalanced. Hey I know, let's slap some 800mm bars on there-- we'll just force everyone to fold over like a road bike so the damn thing isn't pushing in every corner!

Staff Rides: Mike Kazimer's Nukeproof Mega 290
Hi @mikekazimer, (Just sent this as a DM but wondering if others would benefit from the response): I am considering the 290 as a replacement for my Transition Sentinel. I really don't like the imbalanced nature of the Sentintel with a long front and short chainstay-- it makes the bike unpredictable in hard leans. The 290 has the longest chainstay on the market, and I'm just wondering if that results in better cornering traction as the theory suggests.
