    The 3rd & last Nicolai Child - FMXTB DJ Bike

    I arrived back to New Zealand from Spain on Friday morning early. I had with me my 3rd Nicolai child, and the last for some time... Sheesh am a whore at the moment..

    As I mentioned previously, the Blk Mrk Mob of which I love, was slightly too small for me I felt...

    So I gave it to a good home and buddy whom has helped me out big time.

    I decided to go with a Nicolai FMXTB DJ bike....

    Long story short, finally have it back here in NZ with me.

    Started building her up yesterday, great relaxation building ones own bike from scratch... I amslo think I am enjoying being back in NZ and having a garage and workbench, rather than wrenching in the spare room of my apartment.

    The build and quality, attention to detial is typical Nicolai... The frame is straight as an arrow, putting on the rear brake and lining things up was a breeze etc...

    The hard core DJ peeps will hate me, but I am going to run a front brake for a little while, feel this will help improve my trials riding type skills, of which I can improve a lot, same in life really.... I digress...

    Have everything except for a chain and sprocket, of which is in the air as we speak, thank you Err, you rock as normal....

    Some pictures of the frame and build thus far....

    To be continued....

    I happen to agree with Cris on this one. It's been raining off and on for two weeks here in UK. It's all flooded around my area at the moment. Perhaps I should take an extended holiday in NZ, now there is a plan!

    The bike is looking good Whafe, keep the photos coming and enjoy that weather.

    Am on the search for a brake adapter here in New Zealand (not easy in NZ) for the fork to run the Magura Marta brake, silly me, forgot this piece, what a dick!

    Uncle C, sweet on the front brake, I remembered you were running a front one too. Am down with it...

    It is actually raining here today..... We need it though, trails will be sweet for Wednesday nights ride... Yeah baby...

    Thank you, much appreciated..... Called a few stores today.... Hopefully will have one in the next day or so...

    Is your FR fully sorted? If so, post up some complete pictures bro... I will add mine to the build spec database... It is finally sorted, cut the steerer tube, so it is now all good...

    The beast is finally finished....

    Have yet to tighten the chain, and need to lengthen the brake line, I run my brakes on the correct side..

    It weighed in at 31 pounds on the button....

    Will have a blast on it on Sunday in the Dirt Jumps....

    And dude, the color combo is sweeet. Really diggin' the black/grey and then the mint fork for contrast. That may well be the very best combo that I've ever seen with the mint fork.

    Whafe, you're rollin the hotness... That bike is just ill.

    So, it looks like you dumped the MOB with the 4x fork, but kept some of the other parts? Build spec please... Also, with all those fine Helius riding pics, I expect some shots from the DJ's or skate park.

    As Usual you taste is superbe

    Plus the natural Background does not Hurt...

    I hope to visit your Country someday soon.

    Ps: The "Rotating" rear drop out are amazing, what a cool way to change Bottom bracket height, head angle and also wheel base and tire room.

    Karl and his guys are Brilliant as usual.
