    Nicolai or the joy of working on something really well thought out.

    This is my third Nicolai, (Two M-pire's That I have taken apart to the very last bolt) and this Argon FR



    The way I see it working on them is how you appreciate a bike the most and this thing is no exception, I always protect my chainstay in this case with "Self Vulcanize" tape.


    Yeah the frame is a little short for my size but nothing I can not get used to, then again the large one was unavailable.


    Enjoy fellow Nicolaiers

    Ps: the handlebars are just temporary until I get the ones I order.

    Except for a decent fork I think she is ready


    Mango headset, Joplin "Dropper" seat post, HOPE Ti-6/m-4 brakes.


    Today I got some fancy Mavic wheels and even the color is perfect.

    This little Argon is really fun to ride.


    But even then I got stuck on the same stupid set of rocks going uphill so I stop to take some pictures of the views of salt lake city.


    Really fun bike.

    Ps: I do know if is not for the Mango headset she looks like a black & white picture and I'm not sure if I like it or not, the problem is to find other Mango parts to increase the contrast value.

    Oh yeah the good old days, I had to stop frequenting Ride Monkey since I was going broke after purchasing two Nicolai's, five Balfa;s and a Giant DH, but it was fun when it last.

    Ha, yeah - i hear you. Doesn't seem to be any Nicolai action going on over there anymore anyway... I also haven't seen on the trails in a very long time.
