    Dude - any pics of the set up with 888's - thinking about a tripple crown setup for the alps next year!

    Why did you get rid of them and get the boxxers?

    Finally my dream bike is ready.
    Fork- Totem coil
    Stem- gravity light- 60mm
    Headset- cane creek 1.5”
    Brakes- Formula the One 203mm
    Wheel rims - DT Swiss FR 6.1D
    Rohloff speed hub
    And what can I say except “I love it”. And rohloff is “the one” I don’t want to go back to other derailleurs.

    A very nice Helius FR, tiki.

    Your bottom-bracket seems to be very low - are you using a shorter rear shock than other Nic's in this thread?

    Now that randan mentions it, your shock indeed is quite a bit shorter than the one on my FR, or any other FR that I've seen. So this is not on purpose?

    Hmm, I just don't know but it looks a bit strange to me - the seatpost angle and the position of the top link seems to be quite different to the other Helius in this thread. But besides this, your bike looks awesome!!

    It's been a long time since I posted my rig here and I did a lot of changes to it, so here it is again.










    Riding terrain conditions:
    From flat XC-like trails and even paved roads to the Alps.

    * Rider height, weight, ride style e.g XC, endurance,trail, hucker etc
    183 cm / 6 ft., 75 kilos / 166 lbs., riding style would be best described as 'trail' with occasional fooling around some small drops and stuff.

    * Frame, Size, & Color: Nicolai Helius FR 2007 black anodized, no stickers, custom sizing (ETT 600 mm, ST 425 mm), standard derailleur + Rohloff cable guides, ISCG mounts
    * Fork: Fox 36 Van R 2008
    * Shock, i2i, stroke: Fox Van R 2007 200 mm / 7.875 in. eye-to-eye, 57 mm / 2.25 in. stroke, 450 lbs/in steel spring
    * Brakes: Magura Louise 2008 180 mm front, 160 mm rear (Goodridge hose in the rear, will soon install one on the front, too), 203/180 mm for the mountains.
    * Cranks: Shimano Hone with a 32t e.13 GuideRing and e.13 SuperCharger bashguard, modified e.13 32 Special chain guide (removed the roller and installed a homemade aluminium 'taco')
    * Shifter: Shimano Saint 2009
    * Front Derailleur: none
    * Rear Derailleur: Shimano Saint 2009
    * Pedals: Time Z
    * Stem: Hope 50 mm, 25 degrees
    * Handlebar: Race Face Deus XC 31.8 mm, 635 mm wide, 25 mm rise
    * Seatpost: Thomson Masterpiece 31.6 x 350 mm in-line (pictured with Thomson Elite 31.6 x 410 mm in-line)
    * Saddle: WTB Devo, steel rails
    * Bottom Bracket: Hope ceramic
    * Cassette: Shimano XTR 11-34 (pictured with Shimano Deore XT 11-34)
    * Chain: Shimano Deore XT
    * Headset: FSA Orbit Xtreme Pro Deep Cup
    * Grips: Lizard Skins Logo with black ODI clamps
    * Front Tire: Schwalbe Nobby Nic 26 x 2.4 (Schwalbe Ice Spiker Pro 2.1 for the winter, Continental Diesel ProTection 2.5 for the mountains)
    * Front Rim/ Spokes: DT Swiss EX 5.1d / DT Swiss Competition 2.0-1.8-2.0 spokes with DT Swiss Standard nipples
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Hope Bulb 20 mm
    * Rear Tire: Schwalbe Nobby Nic 26 x 2.4 (Schwalbe Ice Spiker Pro 2.1 for the winter, Continental Diesel ProTection 2.5 for the mountains)
    * Rear Rim: DT Swiss EX 5.1d / DT Swiss Competition 2.0-1.8-2.0 spokes with DT Swiss Standard nipples
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: Hope Pro II 10 mm through axle / DT Swiss RWS Thru Bolt rear axle
    * Cables: Shimano cable, Yokozuna housing
    * Misc: FSA 10 mm aluminium headset spacer, Hope seat collar, Schwalbe Extra Light tubes, Lizard Skins Super Jumbo + Jumbo chainstay and seatstay protectors.
    * Overall Weight: currently around 14.8 kilos / 32.7 lbs.

    A titanium shock spring is on the way already which will hopefully drop another ~150 grams from the overall weight.

    For the mountains I'll be switching back to 2x9 instead of 1x9: 22 & 32 Shimano chainrings, Shimano SLX front derailleur with SRAM X.7 shifter, Blackspire Stinger chain guide. But for 95% of my riding 1x9 is enough.

    This bike has just won a local unofficial "Best custom bike" contest in "Full suspension with 130 mm of rear travel and above" category

    Great looking FR jiipee. What sort of terrain do you have in southern Finland? With a 26t inner ring I assume the hills are not too steep or do have legs like Finnish pine trees

    Hey Jiipee. That is one beautiful FR especially in XL. I am so glad they have now changed the head gusset to match the rest of the sizes. I have a 08 XL with the old gusset and have always felt it ugly and not in keeping with the rest of the frame.

    The bronze looks the nuts, you have a beautiful ride there my friend, enjoy.

    Thanks all.
    One of my concerns, is that ring. Terrain is not like Alps tho, but it`s very technical often.

    There's no mountains in Finland ... but the smaller stuff sometimes gets a bit steep. You just have to hit the uphills hard and usually you can keep it up all the way to the top.

    jiipee - why not set the sadddle back a wee bit and run a shorter stem ? that would provide a more mid-centric riding position and really let you rip into the rough with your increased steering input.
    other than that, i like it a lot especially the Anodized Bronze

    derekr, that's really sweet. Interested to know what your wheels weigh.....my 823's laced to Hope Pro 2's, 36 hole front and rear come in at 2400g. I'm using the same tyres....they came in at 860g and 890g....well below the stated weight of 980g.

    nice rig !!!
    seems to me to be a CC, but with plates on the head tube, probably because the rear shock is really close to it.

    very nice anyway !!

    its a cc swinger (does that count as the backend), as the fr swinger only has two holes, and in the picture i can see more than 2.
