Additional Info Have had my 2016 Mega 290 since the current shapes where released. Its a total mule, it gets ALOT of abuse, not much love and ridden hard. The only bits still original are the seat stays, seat clamp and front triangle, but that is soon to be replaced as a small crack is beginning to appear! Basically its new bike time, but with the current world situation affecting work, its gona have to continue to live on a wee bit longer! Anyhoo, i have just sent a carbon wheel away for replacement, and with no rear spare i was going to be without a bike. But Lockdown gives you time to think, and makes you do silly things. A friend donated me a broke 275 mega with a cracked front triangle, and another friend has lent me a rear wheel, to make a mullet!! With no racing or events in the near future i though why not, lets experiment. The rear stays on the 275 are 20mm shorter than the 290s, so i think this has helped keep the bb up as opposed to just putting a 27.5 wheel in the 290 stays. Also stuck the old air shock back on just to run less sag than my coil shock would. I sort of like how the rear colour matches the forks, even if nothing else does! lol So only a quick lap, but seated position seems unchanged, and it manuals a dream! Going to give it a proper off road test later once iv swapped a different wheel on the front as need to service the one thats currently pictured. Its not winning any beauty contests, but if its still rolling its doing what it needs to! Who knows maybe this will be the next variation of mega for 2021! haha! peace and Beer !!
