The frame is A work of art!- Nicolai Nucleon E2 Build
Already took it for a ride. Its amazing , its like a Alps/freeride DH bikes. the lightest gear is realy light ( like 22T front and 32T rear cpg?) climbing is absolutely possible! so i guess 1-2 hours of slow climb by the road for some crazy descends after wards are definitely possible u the alps or something like that at least that's what i experience in zurich when i went riding :/ i hour of climb and 15 mins of downhill ONLY!
Being a size S its absolutely agile and weight is extremely well balance! At 19.5kg it rides as fast on flats and up hill and decend of course faster then my 15.5 kg Helius AM
even before we strip out and tune the fork ( which will be done today, im just too use to BOS, i need more sensitivity! )
From my understanding theres less then 10-15 of these around now in the world :/ wonder y when its just a simple beauty of art created by Nicolai. I love every part of it. it has become so close me in just 1 week of ownership and one shake down ride.
Thanks to Nicolai and after visiting them and having this bike. Well, i dont think i will ride another bike brand. it may sound bias as a Nicolai Dealer. But at least its my persona opinion and im honest about it. I have been amazed time and time over again by every Nicolai i build. Day in, and out. The 8 months wait for the red ano Gboxx was worth the waiT!
