    Eurobike 2008 Nicolai pics

    Just found some Eurobike pictures with Nicolai's ... most of them are pretty self-explaining. I'll post more as I find more. If someone got some more, just post them up.

    Also: if you look very close, you can see the AM has that tapered head-tube. At least I think it looks like it's tapered.

    Sweet pics, thanks!

    Why is the front ring on the belt drive bike soooo damn close to the frame? And how in the hell does that bloody thing (belt) go on and off there?

    That helius AM with hammerschmidt is friggin amazing!!

    well there seems to be a small gap on the lower part of the dropout...... on other belt drive bikes usually the whole dropout is removable...

    Bit of yummyness all round really...... yes the belt drive would be really quite, that was the freakiest thing about my GBoxx TFR, was just how quite the bike is, takes some getting used to....

    I will be out there sometime shortly. Depending on how the net connection is, I may or may not be able to post until I come back, sometime in the middle of the night on Sat. At that point, I'll have spent nearly 24 hours on the road in three days, all of your ungrateful asses.

    Yep, I have to drive from nearly the Czech Republic to the West of Germany, then from there, head south with my party, and camp and party for the night.

    Luckily, we're all heavy metal fans, so Celtic Frost, Testament, and death metal will rule the radio.

    That young dude on the bike is btw (i guess) the youngest N-"sponsoree". Check out his site: http://www.moritz-bauer.com



    Everbody who have had contact with Falco from Nicolai via Email or phone and wondered how the face to that voice looks like:

    Bionicon/Nicolai B-Boxx







    Gary Fisher looking ridiculous.



    Quick promotion for a very nice looking German made disc-brake:





    Unfortunately no "nice" picture from a coloured caliber, therefor a picture from their catalogue:

    So, it took me a while to watch the video. Not so much new: FR stronger frame for Totems/66's, ExtraLove ano parts, a gazillion colours available, Helius AM.

    From ~3:30min on Falco explains the Gates drive on the FMXTB and how they solved the problem getting the belt "in" the frame. On the FMXTB prototype is a gap between seat-/chainstays, in serial-production they will change it to changed yoke, where the belt can be fiddled in. In addition to that Nicolai is a development partner for Gates, the belt is available for all gearhubs (Alfine, Rohloff etc.) singlespeed as well, all necessary parts (pulley, belt etc.) can be ordered over Nicolai and they take over the complete Europe marketing for Gates.

    Pretty much at the end Falco said something interesting, that all the models where it makes sense (Helius AM,FR,ST, ION ST) can be ordered with a Hammerschidt OEM.

    Thanks Testmaen for doing a brief and a translation for us.... that last sentence is indeed a good take away though.... Good to see..... I want to hear some more real time riding on the HS before we all wade into it..... Also by the time the bugs are ironed out, the B Boxx will be here...... Yeah ha

    I heard from Nic UK last week that the AM is HM-ready straight out of the box. Kind of interesting, since I'm assuming it'll need ISCG mounts, and I'm not seeing them on any pics (hence assumed it'd be a paid for option). Something i'll be considering though for the future.

    You're all right about GF too - he is looking like he missed the fancy dress party alright! (much like his '09 range of bikes!)
