    Nicolai Helius FR from Asturias, Spain

    Hi everyone.
    Just posting to present my "new" 2006 Nicolai Helius FR and to "sign up" in this sub-forum

    I come from a Scott Ransom (I also have a steel hardtail, Orange P7) and this bike feels a lot stiffer compared to the Scott. It also climbs pretty good, due to the vertical ST angle, I guess.

    The setup will be posted on the setup post, but briefly, Saint Crankset, Crosmax SX, x.9/XTR, Easton and 2008XT brakes.
    Ok, no more words, just say hello everybody!

    BTW, Two photos of the bike and another two at the first day with the bike.

    Cool - your lab looks very clean. I'm surprised you were allowed to park a "dirty mtb" in there!

    Reminds me, need to go and split some cells

    Actually; I'm not allowed, but everybody (except me) are on holidays, so that's the reason why the bike is in the lab (this day, I've just picked it up from a friend's garage) and not in the mini-warehouse, and also for the lack of chaos in the lab.

    There not so much people riding enduro/AM bikes on Spain (Most of people write here), but even less in my region, where everybody do CX and XC, because we've got tons of mud and steeper climbs (but also some roughs descents). That's one of the reasons I've got an steeler, to ride in winter. Or try it. Just to figure out, we are more or less like Scotland, so, imagine te winter here.
    But anyway, I usually wear baggies, Lycra sucks!

    Very nice ride titopol. I don't normally like camo but that's now two on here I really like. That seatpost looks like it's going to bend soon. I hope you are not too heavy?

    I'm quite heavy (95-96 kg with all the equipment), but no problems with seatposts (Thomson and "Thomson") until now.

    Hehe...can't be enough of that.

    I´m asking, because I could get a 2006 Helius FR in "M" and I'm 1.83m (=6ft) and not sure if the frame suits me. My inseam is 87cm and would propably have to extract the seatpost as much as on your pictures.

    Right now I ride a Nicolai Nonius in "L". The Nonius has a 600mm toptube and the FR a 585mm toptube. I spent quite some time on the bike (and sitting in front of it ) to figure out, if 15mm toptube-length is that big of a deal. *sheesh*

    I also ride a Orange P7 (love it!) and it also has a 600mm toptube. I feel very conformtable in long and big bikes, but for the Helius, IMHO, 585mm TT is perfect for its intended use. With a good quality 410mm seatpost would not be problems. In addition you can install a longer stem, in fact, I'm gonna buy a 90mm Hope to replace my 65mm Bontrager.

    BTW, Whafe you're living near Barcelona, am i right? You are (and everyone who wants to) invited to come to Asturias and taste some no-lycra trails (and trials!). Samples (second photo By Gorbac): bit advertisment of our region, sorry .

    I think being 6 foot, you short fockers a Med would be fine. I am 6'3.5" LOL and the large is perfect for me, have a 65 mm stem, and she is all good..... Well so long as it survives this flight from LA to Auckland.... LOL...

    I don't want to brag too much, because I don't have the frame yet, although I "ebayed" it, but it is not physically here, that I most propably will own a "new", silver anodized 2006 Helius FR "M" for a IMO very,very nice price, so I hope the seller won't cheat on me, because of that.

    p.s. 1: Sorry for thread-stealing!!!

    p.s. 2: I hope the gramatics above make sense.

    p.s. 3: Whafe, you need to cut back a little on those Appletinis.

    Hey some nice flowing track there titopol. It looks fast and fun. I can't wait to recover and get back on the bike. Thanks for sharing that video and the camera is spot on by the way, care to share the make and model?

    The camera is 520 line bullet camera plugged to a Color RCA DVR with 3.5" screen.
    Can't remember, but I guess it is more or less like this one
    There're some more videos from our visit to Vallnord (Pyrenees Bikepark) on our website, in my signature.

    After one month of several ridings, from epic to solo-middle-week, I'm quite happy with the bike. It feels very "german"; I mean, is not as smooth as the Ransom or other high-tech rigs, but is very stiff, reliable and DH-capable, just what I was looking for. In our spanish forum we say the bike is very "Land-Roveric"

    So, my score is 9.5/10. The only mistake is that I need a CCDB to replace the DHX-5.

    Yes, not just pushing the CCDB cause I have one, but it will for sure help things feel as smooth as a knife through butter.....

    Hi everyone! Just updating the feelings about the 2007 HeliusFR. This bike is perfect for me; it is capable from all-day ridings to hit to a local DH next day. It sounds like a test for a magazine or an Ad from Nicolai, but I'm surprised about the bike; is faultless. These one is gonna stay here looooonger.
    Few pics from our "pro" photographer.

    Updating the post.
    With this cold weather, I use to choose the steeler to all-day rides and the Nico for local Donwhills or rides with tough descents.
    Some photos, and the one with the guy riding a Versus is my new Drop-challenge. Las saturday I wasn´t brave enough...

    Hi guys.
    I'm very lucky of having these flowy singletracks just near my place, it's very easy get some speed and enjoy a lot. In other places you can find some rough technical sections, and I like them a lot; anyway this trails are quite easy and "enjoyable".

    Respect to the camera, we use this kit:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/WEARABLE-VIDEO-C...713.m153.l1262

    It's quite affordable and the videos are good enough.
    Chek out these from our trip to Vallnord Bike Prak (I'm the camera-man in all videos, riding an amazing Scott Gambler)
    Megaavalanche Trail

    Old School Trail

    And woodpark


    And this one, just from today, filming a Totem Solo air working in another flowy but rocky singletrack.

    Been only at Vallnord talking about bikeparks, so my opinion is not "complete". Anyway it's quite big and suitable for a long weekend trip. There is 4 o 5 long descents and for me was very exhasuting. Was like "speed->brake a lot->speed-brake a lot->speed again"... Need an aspirin in the night every day to sleep a little bit. And a beer, of course.

    Talking about Gambler it's super stiff and the suspension works faultless. For light people may be (a little) "Merchant-ship" but for me was not a problem.
    But IHMO it has two main problems. One is the way of attaching the swingarm to the main frame. They use a narrow axis just held by two little setscrews. It's the same as in the Ransom. If these screws get loose you have to extract the crankset and use a special tool to approach the extreme of the swing arm to the frame and then, tight the screws again. It's quite complicated and excuse my english, but it's difficult to explain even in spanish. I suffered this problem with my old Ransom and it's a shame!
    The second problem is a general problem in all Scott's bikes. It's the size of the bearings. For a Spark it's OK, but for a machine with 230mm the bearings were quite small.

    Edit. Attach a picture with a circle with the solution i don't like so much.

    6 months with the FR and I'm in love. Now, with the DHX5 coil it's other bike. It pedals better than the DHXAir (!) and of course, it's so much estable and has so much damping. I like the suspensions to be quite stiff, and with the 450lbs coil, I got about 25% SAG, using all travel in big stuff, but without bottoming out. Perfect for me.

    My weight is about 97-98 kg with backpack, protection wear, etc etc.

    The shock is 216mmX57 and is mounted in the second position in the frame (taking the first position as the one closer to the headset) and in the second position of the rockerlink (taking the first position as the "long travel" position) , to avoid rising the BB and hitting the ST with the tyre (High Roller 2.3). It gives about 156mm of rear travel, just perfect to my Van36RC2. The coil is 450lbs. I put about 170PSIs in the boost valvle and the progressivity chamber is in the middle.
    The rebound Knob is also in the middle.

    Finally, I would say that I had a Vivid on the shopping basket, but someone told me that the DHX5 fits perfect with the Van, and after a few rides, I completely agree. The Vivid's great, but the DHX-5 is cheaper and the propedal knob works very well.
    Excuse my English, but I'm almost dead after today's ride..

    In may we`re going to the south of Spain too, 'cause we've been with rain and tons of mud since october, so 9 hours of road trip and riding with 25ºC, sun and short sleeves.

    My mate took the photo from the start of the section (about 20m back from where I was), so imagine how much steep is this particular section of the trail. Add the wet stones, the mud and some rain and enjoy!

    titopol - where will you be riding? We stay with Ciclo Montana in Mecina Fondales. I can't wait to get back and ride dry dusty trails as we're currently suffering heavy snow, heavy rain and high winds. This was us last year on the Elephants Trunk across the valley from Ciclo - I go past on the FR at 13 seconds but the cameraman doesn't catch me. It's the most fear inducing trail I've ridden with huge drops off the switchbacks.

    My skills are -20.
    The rides are in great places and more importantly, my mates are such good photographers!

    Duuude,

    totally sweet pics. Here in Rohloff-City it's friggin' cold. Again. Snow ranging from zero to 3-4 inches in the woods. And not 10% as picturesque like your place.

    *D'oh!*

    I`m not sure that i would preferr some snow instead 6-7 inches of mud in some parts... I'm totally desperate with the mud, the brakepads, bearings, transmission, bushings, etc etc... Checkout this vid from yesterday. It's not riding a bike, it's fighting against the mud.

    I'm looking forward for one entire week of sunshine to dry all the trails and also the walls to pick some days off of the work and ride and climb a little bit!

    That is how it looks in the forests around here. "Stole" the pic from a local forum.

    Looks beautiful for once or twice a year. When the trails are like these for 2-3 months it's a holy s****. My suggestion is take a plain and visit whafe.

    Pain in the ass at the moment. My ride this morning was like yours Testmaen but with more deep sections on the trail. I managed 40 minutes before getting p*ssed off and headed home. This weekend was supposed to be at Glentress & Innerleithen but cancelled due to the snow with most of the trails unrideable. Looks like the thaw is finally starting so hopefully I'll get out in the next couple of days for a decent ride.

    No clue. Copied the link from a german forum. The guy on the bike is teamrider from the german brand Liteville.

    If you "need" to know, I'll find out for you.
