    good choice then.
    as far as i can see / tell, the 167mm of the AM is as able as the 180mm ability of the FR.
    both bikes share similar strengths, but the FR is over-built to deal with additional FR requirements.
    the AM is an awesom [alpine] trail bike.

    i'm 6 feet tall, @ 82kg's.

    i run a ccdb [steel coil] on 450# spring [200 x 57]

    takes rock easily

    dogrock - be careful with the Top Tube length - on the AM and FR it's specifically long. you may wish to custom size your Top Tube length if descending is your priority.

    let us know what you decide upon

    Hmm never thought of getting a custom slopeing tt - awesome idea - does it affect the leverage ratio on the shock at all?

    A constructive thought. This is obvioulsy not going to be used for hard core intense XC AM riding... Could you have gone with an RP23 shock or other?

    Apparently this AM feels so much more plush then the others ( More linear then the usual exponential feel of the AMs . the owner is in this forum too so maybe i should get him to explain about this unique AM ( which happens to be the first here in Singapore) .

    One thing to note thought, the highest mounting point is 130mm instead of 160mm! Reverse from the standard AM. Top top mounting point 130mm has been lock out as the shock will hit the DT, but as of now at 150mm, it doesn't! No possibilities of using the bottle cage and the right seat stay is curved in on the inner side to escape the chain from hitting the seat stays due to the compact frame design.

    Shock wise, it was ordered with a Monarch 4.2 , but it was out so Nicolai gave us a free upgrade to DHX 5.0s and its been on the bike since, we are both looking at getting EX200 DT dt swiss shock ... not knowing if it will work, anyone has experience with the shock?

    Hey you should send that link to Nicolai

    Will have new updated pics soon , got the deep ACROS headset fitted and ordered new wheels ... EX1750's to replace my E2200's , i like the red but im saving a bit on rotating weight BUT more important is the 10mm bolt thru axel . Pics to follow when the wheels arrive.

    Ok this is soon going to be the build of my Nicolai Helius AM

    * Frame, Size, & Color: Helius AM Black with red linkages and Bolts
    * Fork: Rockshox Lyrik Solo air
    * Shock, i2i, stroke Pushed Vanilla R - 200mm x 50mm
    * Brakes: Hope Tech V2'
    * Cranks: Raceface Atlas AM
    * Shifters: Shimano XT
    * Front Derailleur: Shimano XTR
    * Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT
    * Pedals: Shimano MX30
    * Stem: Thomson Elite 70mm
    * Handlebar: Easton EA70 low rise
    * Seatpost: Syncros FR
    * Saddle: Fizik Gobi
    * Bottom Bracket: Shimano XTR
    * Cassette: Shimano XT
    * Chain: KMC Light Ti Nitride
    * Headset: Nuke Proof DC
    * Grips: Giant Lock ons
    * Front Tire: Panaracer Rampgae SC 2,35
    * Front Rim/ Spokes: Mavic 721, DT comp
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Magura Freeride
    * Rear Tire: Continental Mountain King 2.2
    * Rear Rim: Mavic 721
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: Magura Freeride, 135 x 12mm
    * Cables: Gore Ride Ons


    Question i have about the bike is whether anyones on here has experience using a 50mm stroke shock, will probably mount it in the top hole for maximum travel and it should give me about 140 ish mm of travel, (i think). obviously there will be no issues with collisions as its 200mm i2i. But just wondering if there will be any major issues with geometry because its going to sag less than a 57mm stroke, so may be a bit more skittish downhill?!

    Cheers Chris
