Thanks

the reason for asking is this: mine looks different
The rear tubes look more bend and connected to the rear instead of the connection on the sides like yours

this is a proofshot from the brochure

in the second picture it looks like the tubes are straight

and when i think about it, could you also measure the diameter of the rear tubes?,..mine look a bit bigger, but that could be just the picture

Few years ago , I had tryed the first version of Nuke Proof Ti Frame-with perfect welds and (maybe) a different quality of Ti tubes. I don't know who was the manucturer of this serie...
I really love the ride , it climbs like a dream, with ease, It accelerates well,an on the descent , the tracking is excellent!
The frame is absolutely amazing.
This is the sweetest ride I have ever tried....But never had one :(


first few were build by Litespeed and was a straight frame and not the lovely steep geometry like the one from Mr_Ship

Fancied adding a bit of colour to the old steed for Mountain Mayhem. Added Judy FSX, Cooks post and QR, Gravity Research brakes and hangers, Ringle stem and skewers...oh and I had to change wheels after the previous rear hub disintegrated :cry: Nuke Proof carbon hubs on Sun CR17 rims with ti spokes finished off with ye old Red Ritchey ZMAX tyres.

Glad to see you're finally putting that Cooks seat binder to use! :wink: That setup looks fantastic!

A couple of changes to the Nuke as it'll be my main winter rider (once I get some pedals fitted!). Weight 22.5lbs.
