    Thanks guys!

    Haven't got more pictures yet. When I get the saddle on I will go out and take some more shots of it. And yes, it is possible to use a front mech.

    The spalsh of colour on the rims looks real good, real tasteful and not overdone.

    We wait with anticipation for somemore pics

    I've got the older model helius st, it's a 2004 with the extremely steep seat tube, I'll have my pics and build list up in a few days. So far I'm very impressed with the st, it makes me want to do stuff that scares me.

    floki - She's a beauty! Oh, I miss my Helius-ST. The new geo looks money! Throw it on a scale when you get a chance, looks light.

    Very nice bike ! And it must be really light with all those parts.
    I'm wondering how strong are the rims, I've never seen a bike with those ones !
    Never enough singletracks !

    You are fueling my desire for yet another Nicolai project for next year Floki. The new ST does look the nuts. Will have to improve my riding before splashing yet more cash

    If the rims resist a megavalanche, then they should be fine because the megavalanche is really hard for tyres and rims
