Not weighed it yet - waiting until I've put dropper on. Cost wise I blew my budget..... Had set a £900 build cost but ended around £1300 as I got new carbon wheels and a new dropper instead of taking the Mavics and KS off my HT.
Took it for a blast over the Chase tonight. Mainly the Blue with a couple of cheekies thrown in.
Things I like: -170 cranks feel spot on -Climbs better than I thought it would -Less cramped than my HT -Builds up speed quickly -Gearing 11-36 and 38/26 -Brakes have bedded in nicely over 11 muddy miles
-Nano X pedals - grippy a f**k!
Things I don't like -Fox forks - bit clunky -Could have gotten away with a 125 dropper
Really liking the bike - enjoyed building it and think it should be fun to ride. Off over The Dog on Thursday evening with a few guys from work.
Things I need to tweek: -Brake lever & dropper lever position -Tyre pressures -Shock pressure -Swap spacer to lift stem up slightly
'climbs better than i thought it would' yes i thought the same on my first proper ride. cleaned a tough climb for the first time from widdop res. hebden bridge. i reckon any bike with all new components helps as everything is running nice and smooth, but yes im enjoying the mega. something i noticed instantly in comparison to my previous bike (cannondale rz) is how stable the mega feels on the fast loose rocky stuff.
31.54 with standard nukey wheels, fox 34. ive changed stem to an heavier one so maybe 100grams more. ill recheck but they seem to pedal great up and with the 38 top ring mint down.
aiming to go 1x10 asap with a 36t front ring and 42 expander as wanna clear some crap out like left shifter, front mech, granny ring. dont realy use them, just there on silly steep climbs but 99% unused.
