She’s a downhill and enduro rider, gravel rider and the full-time manager of a local bike shop. Meg Whyte is an example of someone who lives, breathes and loves cycling. A love born from the seasons “living the mountain biking dream” in Morzine and cemented by student life in North Wales. Meg gives a glimpse of the inspiration behind the Mega 275c ‘Rave All Night, Ride All Day’.
One thing’s for sure, Meg isn’t shy when it comes to her bikes. A proud lover of the color pink and she has done everything to represent the color here with pride. Hailing from the back roads of the Shropshire wilderness, Meg’s dream, Mega, was long in the making.
âThe inspiration for the design and therefore the filming came from my wild party days at uni, we had caves hidden in the slate quarries nearby, and I wanted a bike design that represented that part of my life. “
âThink about sticky floors, glow sticks and killer rhythms. I wanted something bold and pink (of course) with a retro neon theme. I dropped the idea on Jonny at EliteRefinish, and he brought my vision to life â.
The Elite Refinish, Belfast team have the skills behind most of our Nukeproof custom bikes and love the details. The frame features Meg’s signature Great Whyte shark logo with a neon finish along with donuts and everything. Finished with custom PINK Fox 38 front wheels and pink and black Industry Nine wheels, it looks amazing.
As a part-time resident of the Lake District, in addition to having the legendary local tour guide for partner Adam âGas to Flatâ Brayton, they went to explore places that could show Meg’s Mega in its natural habitat. Thanks to Honister Slate Mine for the after hours access and sorry for the poor boy who was also staying in the Bothie.
