One of our customers Christian from Newcastle bought a Nuke Proof Scalp from us recently and we have stayed in touch throughout the build he has done on it, Christian sent some pics and a little writeup of the build:
So I’ve finally got that beast of a bike together and bloody hell it looks unreal, I’m calling it the golden chariot. I had a quick spin the morning downÂ a short runÂ near my place. It felt really smooth despite the single pivot. It felt really stapple on the ground and in the air. It ended up being a little heavier than I thought it would be around the 18kg mark but to ride it the weight is all in the right spot and accelerates like a much lighter bike.
World cups up front with the vivid for the rear
Saint cranks and brakes with braided hose
Old X9 for shifting but it’ll only ever need to be in top gear ha ha ha, an MRP G2 chain device
Nuke proof seat, bars, pedals. The seat it perfect size (It was one of the first things I noticed in the corners). All nuke proof bits are super solid.
Mavic 729 on hope 2 hubs for the rolling bits
And some blue bolts andÂ bits to finish it off
I could get it a littler lighter with a lighter wheel set and tyres and few other bits and bobsÂ but I’ll see how it feels as the months go by.
Big thank you
