    Here my Nonius CC. Nice (budget) all-mountain ride without to much bob for a single pivot. Although I always fancied the Helius CC (or FR) more, I have to admit i like it from ride to ride better. The Nonius in the 2008 catalouge looks great with its bicolor design. A black RS Pike and a bit beefier built-up it would go like hell to a very reasonable price too. Damn you Nicolai ...

    I really have been quite curious about this model for some time!
    Yours looks great. I would love to get one of these with a bit more beef in the HT/DT region and a much lower stand over...ooooooommmmmmmm

    pike, dhx air, 10mm axle and single ring. That thing would rip it!!

    btw you do not need the 100mm front QR ... Pike fork ... maybe a 10mm rear QR? ... now that would be a tough cookie!

    Hey,

    for building a more race-oriented bike, i´d say there are be better choices than a Nonius. Don´t get my wrong, the Nonius is very versatile frame, which you can build from race-ish to All-Mountain. I add a picture of a light build up. I can´t remember the weight exactly, but think it was 11,9kg.



    But since you already own a Giant Trance, which is IMO out of the box better suited for a race-bike, you may think about upgrading your bike with lighter parts or thinking about another bike.

    Nicolai has a more race-oriented single-pivot frame in its line-up, the Saturn. It looks kinda similar to the Nonius, but uses a lighter tubing and also has less rear-wheel travel. Downside is a shorter warranty (2 years) instead of the standard 5 years. A weight around 10,5kg shouldn´t to hard to achieve.

    May be you should also take a look at the Helius CC, which is also a great allround frame. You can build it like a light All-Mountain bike in full travel mode (130mm) and for more race-use decrease the rear travel to 88 or 115mm, throw a lighter wheel-set with lighter tires on it and you got yourself a great bike for a long day on the saddle. Weight-wise a light build-up should be around11,5-12kg.

    Don´t hesitate to ask further questions,

    Mike

    I'm looking for a new singlepivot full sus frame, and Helius CC is also on my list...

    How does the Nonius CC's low single pivot feel when pedaling?

    How is the ride quality when compared to high forward single pivots, like SC Superlight?

    I'm coming from a Stumpy FSR and I hated how the suspension compresses when you stomped on the pedals...

    Few updates.



    Plussa, trust you are from Finland, right? Anyways I'll continue in english...

    Nonius's rear end is very stable, especially when equipped with a platform adjustable shock. I personally don't have any experience from other single pivot bikes so can not tell the difference between hi and low pivots. Have been riding lot's of 4-link systems though and compared to them Nonius feels like a hardtail.

    Toivottavasti jeesas jotain.

    Nonius got an update. Read it on Nicolai-UK...

    In line with Nicolai’s policy of continuous improvement we’ve quietly slipped through some changes. Althought the Nonius is our best value frame there’s no skimping on the great Nicolai build quality and design touches. On the Nonius the ‘tie’ between the seat tube and downtube to countacts shock forces and keeps everything super stiff.

    In response to rider feedback we’ve dropped the top tube to give more standover. To bring the looks up to date we’ve added smart new gussets to the head tube and seat tube and the machined Nicolai ‘N’ to the head tube.

    Available now.
