So having sold my previous 2014 Mega TR I decided to build a newer Nuke.
Picked up a NOS boxed 2017 Mega 275 frame (black & yellow), RockShox Yari 160's and Nukeproof Neutron 27.5" wheels for a really good price.

Postman had fun delivering all this...... even the dog was excited!

Forks including service kit

Wheels ready taped, valved and with spare spokes 29mm rim width.

Frame looking awesome!

I was originally going to swap the 11speed XT off the Scout and break my previous Mega and put the 10 speed SLX stuff on the Scout.
In the end decided to sell the previous Mega whole.

Ordered some more 11 speed XT kit for this build instead.
Gone for 11-46t with a Works Components 30t oval n/w ring.
Picked up some SLX brakes for a good price too with 203/180 XT rotors - was contemplating Zee or Saint, but decided to stick with SLX for a bit.
170mm dropper from OneUp in the recent sale with Wolf Tooth remote.
Going with Magic Mary/Hans Dampf combo on tyres which I picked up off a mate who's moved to 29".
Nukeproof headset, bars & stem with Ergon grips.
Sticking with Superstar Nano-X Evo pedals too.

Build will commence after I get the invisiframe fitted at the LBS next week.
