    AM order placed ! check out my colours .

    The order is placed , now just the waiting game. It will take me that time to work out the spec.... the colour scheme was hard too but it was a toss up of some similar colours for the front triangle I went through every combo i liked for 3 days, though some of you might not think so THE FINAL DECISION WAS ......

    FRONT TRIANGLE - lichtgruen


    REAR TRIANGLE - bright white


    Both standard colours of the Nicolai colour sheet.

    This will also be "EXTRA LOVED" with red ano and red decals.

    It will be kinda similar to the one used on the nicolai website, but slightly "BRIGHTER"



    The rest of the bike will be built up in various red and white parts

    Really looking forward to getting it ...... BUT i know for definate a few of yous here will see it before me

    I done quite a bit of comparing other peoples colour on the bikes to the nicolai colour chart to work out the difference in shades from "on paper" to "on bike"

    The aus importers bike above is Psycho turquoise


    I reckon the colour i picked is gonna GLOW !

    Nice frame, would be nice with a custom Wotan and some louises with red alloy spiders. But no ICSG BB!!! What if you want a HAmmerschmidt. Can you call and ask if you can get a frame with one before they build it?

    Hey Hufi , my german is not so good

    Its not even 2 weeks since my order and im wishing it quicker already.

    Probably due to a few parts arriving already and no frame to put them on .

    I used to build old school BMX and i ALWAYS started with the frame and forks

    How about these ozzy? Way way cheaper than a CK and way lighter too but only a 15mm insertion, is this enough?

    Mick believe it or not , they specify 22mm insert , there is a few , i reckon i'll just go normal CK red set rather than a steel deep set .... still undecided and 8 weeks approx from recieving the frame... bloody hell mate ...you didnt tell me how hard it was !
