Nicolai owners…..show us your bikes please!
130 to 140 mm travel will be fine. I tried riding my Pace RC40 wound down to 120mm , but didn’t feel quite right to me.
The CC (cross country) is a little misleading description (in my opinion), it more like an AM.
The AM is almost a FR frame, and the FR is very well built – as nickc said – probably too much bike for most.
CC or AM are good choices, choose either one – just depends on how aggressive a rider you are (and how much travel you want).Posted 9 years ago
Hicksville – I have test ridden the CC with a DT Swiss shock. I wasn’t that impressed with the performance of that shock, but the owner of the LBS I borrowed it from swears by it, so it’s kind of a personal choice. Personally I’d put either a RS Monarch or a Fox RP thingymajig.Posted 9 years agoHob NobMember
It was a good looking bike, and rode pretty well, but it seemed to suffer horrendously from brake jack on big tracks. Over the last 18 months my riding has progressed into a far more DH orientated state and I would have liked to have tried it on some other tracks to see how it compared, but no such luck. My Sunday rides a lot differently to it, not in a bad way, i’m used to the low BB already but it feels a lot more like a bigger bike.
MrCrushrider – its a brace to help stop the frame twisting under compression.Posted 9 years ago
I’m test riding a Helius AM tomorrow afternoon as part of Head for the Hills’ big demo day.
Not sure if I should do this really as it’s only likely to result in the genie being let out of the bottle and I’ve just found out the wife is expecting so bike purchases aren’t likely to go down well.Posted 9 years ago
