    400 euros.........,
    I believe that to be a lot of money.

    Is the high price, perhaps because Nicolai have to get this finish done by an outside company and they are simply just passing on the cost + a bit for the bother.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the whole coloured ano thing came about because of a one off special request. Having sourced a supplier and fulfilled the order, they have now decided to offer the finish to anyone with enough folded/enthusiasm.

    Been covered on another thread - coloured ano costs extra because it has to be done elsewhere - hence additional costs to cover shipping and out side work.

    If you want it, pay it, if you don't, don't.

    I'm happy to pay money for improved performance or longevity - hence buying a Nicolai

    But I ain't no poser so the fancy colour ways are not for me

    This is the thread that has covered the question previously, pretty rational answer,

    if you cntrl F search word cost it'll give you the jist of the answers (the threads not primarily about ano cost)

    First 2 Anodized 2010 frames arrive at my door!

    Looking through the thread and thinking about adjustable seatposts, seems about 2/3rd dont run one, what do you guys think about them,

    when i get out on the bike it tends to be for all day rides, lots of miles, lots of ups and downs, is the weight penalty offset by having greater utility?

    they're great, but imo [joplin r] very pernickity regarding maintenance.
    i like the idea, just not the hassles.
    i've also broken 2 clamps on mine, but the importer [2pure] have been fantastic with their service.

    My AM is now being built and the only missing part is the seatpost. I decided to go for the i950 for various reasons (mostly due to no side play and colour choices) but it seems they are out of stock for the moment.
    Aesthetically the new Joplin is the best IMO but my LBS just received one and the side play is very noticeable out of the box, so it's immediately out of consideration.
    I will get a thompson elite for now, and I will keep it as a spare when I finally install the i950 since you can never be sure of their reliability.

    I have a KS i950 for one year on my all day rides bike, and I can't ride without it anymore. If you are tall, don't hesitate and take the KS because it has 125mm of travel, I would even need a bit more. The 400g more are really worth it !
    Never enough singletracks !

    ztr flows run tubeless should get you nearly there. longer storke shock and Ti spring will take you all the way there(assuming you're still on the CCDB?)

    Here you go TLR - a weight weenie tastic 12.6kg (27.8lbs in old money)



    Perfect spec for tiptoe-ing round the trails.

    NOTE - This is not mine. Picture stolen from another forum.

    I just don't get this weight weenie business.
    Especially on an all mountain bike.

    @rpm - it's about getting strong AND light, irrespective of cost.
    i like a bike to ride agile, with feedback and that's not possible on a kikkassa.
