    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 !

    no frame

    Shocks are at the shop waiting to be picked up.

    Wheels and tyres coming from CR any day now.

    Going to try a XT rapid rise rear D this time and XT front, should be here any day too.

    waiting for CR to get more hope brakes in and still tossing up over raceface AM and XT cranks. (today 30/01 was the day they were to get more hope gear in too )

    I see you got some more inspiration from a recent Melrose visit

    The Raceface is very nice, but I have seen a few hassles with their machining of late. Leading to tight fits and no fits around the spline area, the XT's are so simple and seem pretty much fool-proof IMO, plus they are cheaper. The only thing is the Race face BBs seem to have better bearings, actually almost every company seems to have better bearings in their BBs. But they are easily replaced.

    Went on a night ride on some sweet trails in Melrose on Monday, I am still buzzing now.

    when i read the post after i wrote it , i thought id cop it from a UK'er

    Yes, it all sounds good, but we just had the warmest day in 70 years here on wednesday ... nearly 46deg , thats 115 farenheit .

    TLR when it hits 40deg , its like pointing a hairdryer in your face and going for a bike ride... it just doesnt work

    Yep, i understand your point too mate, i lived there for 29 years and my family are letting me know how miserable it is there at the moment .... so i play along and whinge about the heat here

    That where you are bud? thought you were a uk based rider?

    Did you ever get anywhere with your stolen FR? Did you get insurance etc?

    Thing is it'll be easy to spot with the gold linkages!!! Some dirty Barsteward will have it hmm....

    Yeah like i say pass the word around AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE as someone somewhere is bound to see it at some point and with the gold links it'll stand out.

    I know how you must feel i'd be gutted if my pride and joy was stolen.

    I also wouldnt want to be the theif if you caught him/her!!!

    Things are happening

    I got a sneek peek of mine , its painted and shouldn't be too far off now , looks like 8 weeks is the waiting time for an AM

    The reason i have the pic is Nicolai (Germany) sent it to Nicolai (UK) then to dipper questioning the colour/shade

    I realise with the colours of bikes on here its not everyones pick , but its the way i wanted it

    Its certainly different

    I dont think i can get the exact colour i wanted, kawasaki green with glitter - Nicolai UK said the gold glitter would change the actual green colour (Adding an orange tinge) so i dont want to end up with a dodgy colour so i guess it'll just have to be gloss kawagrun unless they can work something out....

    What colour rear is that getting? as did you say you had red wheels?!?!?!
