    Nicolai Bass?

    Hi guys.
    What's a Nicolai Bass frame intended for?
    I did some search and can't find almost any info about this frame
    Is it a DH frame or can is be used as an AM frame to build a bike that you actually can pedal?
    Info about this is appreciated

    Actually, there was a Bass CC and a Bass FR. The latter offered more rear travel. I think 110mm for the CC and 150mm for the FR, but I'm not sure.

    A friend of mine rides a Bass CC and it performs quite well. He uses it for XC touring and bikejöring (sledge dog racing with a mountain bike). You should only get a rear shock with adjustable platform damping for out of the saddle climbing.

    edit: min 7 years: my Nonius is 6 years now and the Nonius replaced the Bass (and is now history itself )

    Thanks guys

    I saw one for sale and got curious. It must be the FR frame.
    Besides the FR frame i think it's set up for DH or something.
    Does this bike make any sense?

    Nicolai even made a Bass DH and this probably is one of them.
