    Lion came with Recovery Mode enabling you to hold option R on boot to access the recovery partition to install a clean install.

    Is this still included in ML ? Would be the easiest way to do a clean install surely?

    1. download.
    2. install ML as an upgrade
    3. reboot, hold option + r
    4. install ML from recovery partition as a clean install?

    Or would it be easier to just save it to a USB?

    Either way will work. I would make the USB to avoid doing the download twice.

    If you do the Recovery HD method that will have to DL Mountain Lion all over again.
