    New Helius RC

    Hey Guys,

    i just wanted to let you know, that a new Helius frame will join the existing models: the Helius RC. Mainly designed for Cross-Country/Marathon. Frame weight is 2440gr (in Size "M", anodized and shock). Travel will be 95/115mm. Other goodies are the DT Carbon Air Shock, ceramic shafts and titanium screws. The frame can be fitted with all up-to-date CC/Marathon forks.

    The pictures are from the current Nicolai newsletter (http://nicolai.dbap.de/customGates/s...newsletter.php):





    There´s already a bike built up in the german forum, with which the owner competes at the moment in the "Cape Epic" Endurance Race.

    Greetings

    Just to supplement the above: angles 70/73, TT 570/580/610/630 s/m/l/xl, rec fork travel 80-110, rear travel 95 - 115, wheelbase 1071/1091/1111/1131 s/m/l/xl, tire clearance 2.3in. Should make a great race bike. Perfect for Thetford.
