Our head mechanic recently built his new Nukeproof Snap up, what originally started as using a Norco to part out has become a build of its own.
Hosting an array of parts from the Sram, Avid, Straightline and Rock Shox, it is built to ride, and ride well. The geometry of the frame is perfect for 4X with a fast acceleration and works well for dirt jumps as well.
With plenty of thought to the overall look with Sram’s Gold Xo shifter and derailleur to make the simple look pop.
With the U-turn Lyrics up front wound down to 115mm it runs sweet, although with a suggested travel of 80-100mm, thoughts are already popping up to run some Argyles to get the front end down a little lower.
To keep the chain in check while riding he has chosen to run a Straightline chain guide which is doing it’s job perfect.
With Sram XO brakes it stop sharp and looks stealth all black and silver, with gold highlights, it’s definitely finished to a top standard.
Nukeproof Bars and a Straightline stem complete the cockpit.
If you are looking to build a new 4x bike but still want to be able to attack dirt jumps this frame is definitely worth looking at. With thoughts of a new wheel set and forks Craig is aiming to get this already light bike even lighter with more products from Nukeproof and Rock Shox.
