“Radical Reactor”

There is only one comic book hero for a BMX mad youth growing up in the 80’s BMX scene. Radical Rick was a comic book hero created by Damian Fulton which ran in the back BMX Plus Mag (originally between 1979-93).

Team CRC manager Nigel Page was one of these youths and in a tribute to his favourite hero he sourced some graphics from the legends at Slik Graphics to customise his new Reactor 290c. 

Nige’ weapon of choice was a Reactor 290c in Medium Size (he’s about 5’9″) in Nardo Grey finished with all the Team Chain Reaction Cycles sponsor’s components.  

The Reactor is finished with the latest Nukeproof Horizon components. 

Nige’ using the prototype version of the Enduro Sam Hill Enduro pedal at the time. 

Customised with riders named the Grey Horizon bars, stem and Sam Hill Grip combo.

With the team’s SRAM- Rockshox connection the Reactor is dripping in the companies premium components:

Riding the bike on the uplift in Innerleithan, Nige has chosen to use a similar RS spec set up with a 150mm lyrik up front (although recently he’s been experimenting using the SID and PIKE fork).
