    Now that is one seriously sweet AM! It looks unfamiliar with the shortened seattube, not in a negative way though. I so wish I asked for wire guides for an adjustable post!

    mmmmm..........dizzy urban looks just like every other dizzy urban - i'm put off it a bit now - i'm thinlking about anodized green next.....
    31.5lbs is a bit optimistic isn't it ? have you got an on-scales shot for proof ?
    cheers.

    Yeah might be optimistic. The wheels are the key, they are super light at 1450g. I wouldn't use the rear Roval in the Peak/Wales etc, I'd switch to a heavier item.
    Allowing for a few hundred grams of misc, my reckoning brings it in around 32lbs.

    I have a similar problem on my intense with a cable routing issue. the gear/brake cable comes off the front end and in an S shape level with the linkage, then the next cable mount is about 100mm down the "seat stay" if you will, so it rubs on the edge.

    This is a technique we use on world rally cars (stolen idea from work)

    Essentially you cut a 5-10mm length of small diameter silicone hose (this is the same type as used to plumb the windscreen washers on most cars), put the cable tie through it so the hose sits at the clicky end, then wrap the cable tie around your frame where you want to create a mount, loop it back through the piece of house hose and then around your brake/gear outer



    and also i used it on my fork to keep the front hose tidy

    A new medium AM for drooling over.

    Dipper will recognise this... although it has now been built up.

    Note the new Marzocchi 55 Micro Ti Forks





    I really like this.

    EDIT - I should add that this is not mine. It belongs to a good friend and I AM VERY JEALOUS!

    Awesome mate - very cool. Did you retire the Nucleon then? You'll be flying on the AM having spent so much time grinding around the hills on the Nucleon.

    Would very much like to hear your thoughts on the 55s. Are they the RC3 Ti ones?

    Oops - sorry for the confusion. I added an EDIT above to say that it's not mine

    Yes the forks are RC3 Ti - First ride report is that they are good and not that heavy... maybe Dipper weighed them? The owner is a Marz lover so he really had no choice in what forks to put on this bike

    First ride report was very enthusiastic... but he always is

    You know I am not sure which I dig the most, the colour of the frame or that wallpaper!

    The frame is awesome; good choice to get the white seat stays as it backs off the intensity of the orange ano a bit and gives it a great contrast.

    Intersting about the tailoring. Did you just change the seat tube length with regard to the sizing or is the top tube and wheelbase also different (I know you've also changed the head angle so I guess that would also shorten the TT and lengthen the WB?)

    Come on man - details and buid pics!

    - Seat tube : 427 mm
    - Chainstay : 427 mm
    - Head angle : 67° with 545 mm fork ... but I will ride a 555 mm forck so the head angle will be 66,5° approximatly
    - For the rest : same geo as usual

    Will not the 555mm fork void warranty? Sweet bike, the white seatstay makes a great combination to the orange.

    agree with you yetimeister - i'd prefer full ano, but the rear stays are an extra €200 in ano alone .
    however, it's a small cost compared to the overall build cost so can easily be "lost" / "justified" [delete as appropriate]

    I was looking at the ano blue but 400 euro?

    not being overly familiar with anodizing what would they have to change to anodize something blue instead of black? Tool change? paintshop setup?

    its getting a case of ... how good can you afford your nicolai to look ....

    Its not as if they have to go to a bit of hassle to do a camo paintwork....as said before - black or bronze ano is free .... whats with the 400euro charge for any other colour ?

    I think it looks awesome .... but they can stuff it up their ass !

    NICOLAI ... we buy your frames coz we love the build and the ride , they are awesome , dont rip us off mate !!!!!!

    Anodised is anoidised ...... ask Mr Raceface who doesnt seem to have different prices for his colours . His black is the same as red .
