They cocked up the floating ratchet.

The bigger wheels didn’t help the Mega 290 in the playfulness department, but I think much of the Giga’s strength here relates to its suspension design and rear shock. It popped off obstacles with more amplitude than my personal Mega 275, which has 15mm less rear travel than the Giga. I suspect Nukeproof made it a priority to give the Giga a playful feel, and they did an impressive job achieving it, in my opinion.

Thanks for the ideas. In any case I’d bet DT Swiss would take care of an owner in the event of a similar issue.

The internals of the hub felt like they weren’t engaging properly under hard pedaling, so the cranks would turn a few degrees without turning the hub before catching again, only to slip slightly again a turn or two later. It was noisy and made it impossible to really pick up any speed. Given DT Swiss’s reputation, I believe this was likely a freak failure of some type, but I didn’t have time to figure out exactly what was wrong before the bike had to go back.

It is irresponsible for Vital to promote these bikes to its readership. I bought a hardtail in my late 30s. Now I ride only at the dirt jumps, surrounded by 15-year-olds, wearing jeans that look like they could be my wife’s. It is no way to live.

+1 for Jon Wilson. When I start thinking I'm fast, all I have to do is follow Jon down a trail to set myself straight.

Great review. I'm expecting my Process to arrive this week. Is 14.5 kg the bike's current weight or the out-of-the-box figure?

Loved the suspension shots. Glad to see they went Boxxer over the Domain.
