    Great color! Normally appreciate Nicolai’s but don’t particularly care for how they look – love this one! Pics when built.

    That’s a really nice looking bike in a great colour.
    What shock are you putting on it?

    CCBB air Cs and Pikes up front, although i almost wish I’d gone for Bos Devilles…

    Is that an Ion 16 265? I have the 16, love it.

    What’s the colour? It’s ace.

    Ion 16 650b, its Semi Permeable Yellow apparently.

    Looks awesome. You’ll love the CCDBair and Pike, they’re incredibly good. I can’t see how BOS can be sufficiently better to risk the almost comedic support for servicing and warranties!

    That looks ace. I test rode an ION 29er with Pikes and CCDB CS, it were brilliant. Looking forward to seeing this built up.

    Yetiman, was it dippers 29 you had a go on?

    I know that Bos aren’t great with parts but there are more and more threads popping up about problems with Pikes?

    Philbert – yes, it was dippers demo bike. Did you get yours from Gravity Sports?

    I’m on my second set of Pikes (150mm dual air, and 160mm solo air), and so far I haven’t experienced any problems.

    Here’s a pic of my ancient helius FR, just for the hell of it πŸ™‚

    There are a LOT of Pikes out there. Most threads I’ve seen are people questioning the top out knock which is due to the small coil spring to initiate the negative stroke – you only notice it when you lift the front of the bike up, not when you’re riding it. Not a fault, just a side effect of what makes the small bump sensitivity so good.

    Yep, Richards gonna build it up for me, I’ll be heading up in the week or so with some parts then have a mooch on it around Scotland for a couple of days!

    Thats a very good point and glad its not a fault!

    That’s look very nice, just about to order my helius tb and cannot decide on the colour !!

    I hope one of these:

    is in your future plans. Full lime green semi permeable yellow must be the only way to go!

    Full beard needed as well of course.

    It’s got to be called that because of school Osmosis experiments with semi-permeable membranes. The fluid used was always that colour.

    I thought that was part of the helmet – Enduro Strap? 8)

    Blimey, that is nice!

    looking forward to seeing that built 😈

    Lovely colour, but…

    …when will Nicolai realise their graphics look shit and was it welded by a blind man with no hands?

    Now that I like. Funny, although I like the agricultural looks of a Five I’ve never really seen a Nicolai I like. Just a bit too industrial looking. But then I haven’t seen many that are in colour.

    Agreed but I do enjoy watching peoples faces whilst they try to work out what bike I’ve got!

    Awesome colour. Love it.

    It makes my ano black AC 29er look positively dowdy.

    Enjoy.

    In that case I reckon you’ll be getting mistaken for Jerome Clementz πŸ˜€
