    Yeah delete the FR thread get with the times guys

    I reckon the FR will still be a production frame even when the AFR comes alive. You cant get rid of something that does so good.

    not unlike Dereks above. Nice. I reckon you're weights a bit more than 15kg though. 16 maybe. Even when mines at it's lightest(floats, xtr etc) I still struggle to get it to 15k!

    SWEET !!! Very nice Dennis

    I love red wheels on these bikes , i had the E2200 on my AM but bought the EX1750's mainly for the 10mm bolt thru, they roll nicer and are lighter .... BUT dont look anywhere near as good as the red ones did . Enjoy

    Karve.Thanks mate.
    The forks may look nice but the damping seems to suffer if it takes multiple large hits they tend to spike badly.Not that bad a fork for about £500
    Waiting for my new lyriks.170mm of coil plushness.Hopefully black aswell.Gone for the dh mission control damping and fixed at 170mm.

    The sx's are excellent and very easy to service.
    The front and rear run on sealed cartridge bearings and there is no bushing/plastic thing on the freehub.Ran mine for a couple of rides and then had the spokes checked and tightened.Every 2 months i pull the rear hub to bits(takes about 5 minutes) and clean out the pawls and apply fresh oil to the freehub check the bearings and put it back together.The rear has a nut on one side to remove and freeplay in the bearings.
    The pick up is much better on these compared to older mavics as these use the latest 4 pawl design.
    These wheels replaced my industry nines which were good wheels but i went through a lot of bearings and some are only available from them,the pick up isnt as good as the i9's but the reliability and durability of the mavics has been better.
    The mavics are one sexy looker aswell had more comments on these than the i9's.

    All in all an excellent wheel package.the best ust rims ,and seems to be a quality hub and spoke combination.

    I'm in Munich, Germany: so, I ride either the local trails that aren't bad at all and in the Alps if I get to it. The mountains are about an hour drive away from here which isn't that bad.

    Hi guys, great thread: going to picking up a s/h FR frame in a bit, just wondering what the b/b shell width is? I'm trying to get all the right parts together before it turns up so that I can get it built up as quickly as possible!

    Prob best to contact Nicolai and give the serial No, and or year and they will tell you 100%.

    If your going HT2 BB a 68/73mm will be fine, it wont be more than that anyway, but dependant on year they switched from 68 to 73mm.
