Meg Whyte’s Custom Mega 275c

“Sharky Mega 275c” 

To be honest, I had my reservations, but assured by Meg that her colours of choice would look amazing. Safely say she won the argument and her new “Sharky” spec Mega 275c looks stunning with custom hot pink decals.

New bike days are always awesome, pealing the sticker off the logo on the head tube never gets old. Being one of our newest sponsored athletes, this was a pretty rad day. and a first for us to see this set up on a Mega.   

Bike sizing is one of the most often asked questions, but with our team comprising of Sandra at 5′ & Meg stands 5’3 through, both on Small’s, through to other riders at 6’5, hopefully there is is a Mega to fit most people.
