    Very good question!

    Too much upgradeitis and to many bikes to choose from....

    Not Spam, but if there is any Nicolai peeps whom would like a TFR, let me know...

    I had it built up more for DH, then got the ION ST.... I would actually like to see the TFR built up for more AM type riding.... Would be interesting.....

    I see. But unfortunately you are not the only one* who was eliminating a G-Boxx bike in favor of (a) derailleur-type bike(s) for some reason (in the first place weight penalty?) ...
    However, it is not at all promising in the sense of the further advancement of the gearbox concept.

    Another TFR for sale here.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=150349235381

    I think about upgrading or reducing weight on my Nucleon everytime I have to take it up a hill... but I have better things to think about on the way back down.

    In the five years since I bought it things have moved on in the 6-7" travel world with lightweight AM becoming the buzz; although I'd rather have a bike that is not going to fall apart under me.

    Oh, and nice new toy Whafe ;-)

    I am not at all discounting a GBoxx type bike, I am all for it..... I didnt at all build the TFR for AM type riding, I was going to go to a ION GBoxx, it wasnt quite advanced enough to bring one to New Zealand. All good in Germany or Europe, should there be an issue, but too hard from down here in the wonder land of New Zealand....

    I will be the first to jump on a GBoxx type bike that can be like say an AM / FR and weigh 34 lbs......

    Again, to be fair, maybe I need to build up the TFR againn in a lighter weight guise.....

    Apart from the rear wheel, you could use most of the parts from your FR, I guess. Or not ?

    Don't know if it would be worth the work though, if it would only be 1 pound lighter, than before ... ?!

    Just modified quickly an existing Excel-file ... had it at 16kg dead with an air-shock and 2.5kg for fork. Guess with yor 36 Talas and the CCDB it could end up 16-16.5kg.


    BUT that's not the topic of this thread . What kind of a flipper is that ?
