    Anyone got a Helius Pinion AM yet?

    If so what's it like?
    I was under the impression that the first batch would be out by now but have not heard any reports from anyone.

    I've been told it could be May as well but I'm not holding my breath.

    Cyril, 2 bikes? Dipper never said I could order 2 bikes . Mind you he said I couldn't even order one......so I did .

    29ers Cyril or 26 or 650b. I've had enough pain and anguish over the geometry of my one!

    Quote from Nic UK on the AM Pinion thread:

    "Nicolai say you can order almost any model with Pinion. Might take a while but since the suspenion design doesn't change they'll just be working with an alternative bottom bracket/box assembly."

    Referring to an up-to-date short communication by Vincent STOYHE, the roll-out of all PINION equipped NICOLAI frames will delay at least until mid-August 2012. He told that a major supplier of PINION cannot keep the scheduled date of delivery, unfortunately. So, keep in mind: Good things come to those who wait.

    To make the waiting less painfully: a bunch of exciting nude ИICOLAI frames anticipating the mating with a PINION P1.18 unit each.

    Cyril, How did you manage to get your hands on one? Is that a pre-production demo bike?

    Great video. Thanks for sharing.
