    Nicolai Frame Colours for Reference

    Hi All

    I thought it apt to set up a thread of which can get made into a sticky to show new purchases etc the frame colours as a frame, then built up.... As we all know, one of the hardest decisions when purchasing a Nicolai is choosing the frame colour...

    Please head your posts up with the frame colour, then show a shot of the frame pre build up, then one post build up......



    Shot from the Nicolai Factory.... Loads of colours......

    I will start....

    Nicolai Nucleon TFR - Jungle Camo





    Nicolai Helius FR - Urban Dizzy Camo





    Nicolai FMXTB - XTR Grey





    Nicolai ION ST - Raw as the day it was born





    Yeah ha, go the Nicolai's

    I don't want to spam the thread, that is supposed to be pics-only, but how is it your aircraft-grey on your FMXTB is considerably darker, than the one I posted in the other thread ?! The owner confirmed that his Helius AM is aircraft-grey too, so maybe there are 2 aircraft-greys with different RAL codes ... ?!

    Testmaen - Not Spam at all, it has me real confused, just uploading the AM now. I am wondering if my FMXTB is in fact XTR Grey? Thoughts ?

    That could be very well be it. *is this proper english?*

    I found a Argon CC on the German forum in XTR grey the other day and they look quite similar. I didn't post it here, because the quality of the pictures isn't that good.

    Ion British Racing Green Metallic with Bright White rear. Not sure they still offer it as I can't find it on their RAL chart, which would be a shame.

    Thanks Ryates. I've had a CC and an AC and prefer the CC. It feels faster and more flickable plus it climbs faster and going up hill quicly is important for me. All in all the CC is more me and I'm more comfy on one

    Defo a rohloff but this time air front and rear. I'm trying to make it as light as possible, well about or under 30 lbs

    Mugtree, Daisy looks great... Look forward to hearing how she rides.... I think Daisy deserves her own thread if you have not already done one...

    Loads of snow, Daisy looks good amongst her surroundings...

    the other reason being, you're a nobber and we wouldnt let you buy one! just you carry on letting faceless/tasteless corporate types pick your colour schemes for you so you can blend in nicely with the majority.

    Rockefoten, would love to see the 29er built up, how you getting on with it?

    Arranging a test ride of a Helius AC in the next few weeks myself, being a tall bloke too (198cm) I'm considering the 29er version instead, so would be interested to hear your views.

    Stunning bikes, head and heart are having a healthy debate at the moment!!

    Why not try the colour konfigurator on the Nicolai homepage?

    Or try this one: iscape.de Nicolai Helius AM Konfigurator

    How accurately do the colours on the konfigurator match up to the actual anodising? Especially the green.
