    I heart my 05 Helius ST again!!!!

    I blew up my Romic months ago and while riding my 08 SC Bullit today I had an epiphany about how to make my ST sweet again. I had a 5th element leftover from my Gemini and I schemed that it would work. I love that Nicolai's are so adjustable, I went from a 9x3 to a 7.875x2.25 and all I had to do was move my shock mount towars my seat tube!
    The geo is great and I'm still getting about six inches, my bb is low, low, low.........About 13''. I took her to the dirt jumps and I was hitting jumps and gaps I'd never dared and I was doing it well. I took some shots with my 08 SC Bullit for reference to size and geo and one shot of the welds on my ht gusset.......gorgeous Action pics will be on their way next week Oh and btw she's no longer for sale!!!!!!

    a few more.

    My ST felt much more stable in the air as opposed to my Bullit, could've been the low bb and balance. Do your guys' ST's have a low bb?

    Man I lust love how Nics age well.. 3 years old and still looks cutting edge sweet. Cant wait for the action shots amigo

    I see u have a front der mounted on the seat tube and no seat tower.... how does that work with an ST? Is it a configuration option with an older model?

    It's an '05 medium that had been a 10-12 ride demo rig, I bought it this past fall from Matt Medore aka casino bikes and the usa distributor. It fits like a small large..........perfect. The seat tube on these models is positioned so that a tower isn't necesarry or available.

    probably about 8 or so inches, I can't find any official stats for this frame but judging from how I've got it set now and the current offerings in this model from Nicolai I'd say eight.
