NUKE PROOF Ti Race ATB Frame
Nuke Proof builds each frame 100% in house, from the tooling design, to mitering the titanium, to laying the beads. The frame has oversized tubes and a sloping top tube to increase bottom bracket stiffness. The seat stays and top tube are situated offset to each other which alleviates a "whippy" feel in the rear triangle often found in other titanium frames. Each frame, weighing just 3.3 lbs., is designed with suspension-ready geometry. The attention to detail and time dedicated to each frame results in perfection! Bottom bracket height: 11.5", Chainstay length: 16.75", Seatpost: 27.0 mm, Headset 1 1/8", Top pull derailleur: 1.25", Titanium (frames): 3AL/2.5V, Titanium (dropouts): 6AL/4V, Frame size 20", Center to Center 18", Top Tube 23.5", Angles Head/Seat 71/73, Head Tube 5" (127mm).
