    Seat Post to Seat Clamp Table

    Fellow Nicolai peeps...

    Can someone help with putting a list together of seat post measurement to seat clamp..

    S, M, L, Helius FR = 31.6 mm seatpost = 35 mm seat clamp
    XL, XXL Helius FR = 30 mm seatpost = ??? mm sear clamp

    S, M, L, Helius CC = 31.6 mm seatpost = 35 mm seat clamp
    XL, XXL Helius CC = 30 mm seatpost = ??? mm sear clamp

    S, M, L ION ST = 30 mm seatpost = ??? mm sear clamp

    I am feeling like a total dumb sh!t today, well most days of late in fact..

    Howdie,

    according to N-manual ("dirty-fingers") the seattubes on all N-bikes have the same outer-diameter (35mm), therefor a 34,9mm seat-clamp (and front der.) must be used.

    The seatpost diameter varies from 31.6mm on frames, which aren't designed for any "abuse" and respectively on the larger frames sizes, which are more likely to be ridden by "very strong" riders.

    The 30mm seattube is for all the DH, 4x, dirt etc. frames, which need that extra stability/stiffness a larger tube-thickness provides.

    That manual on the N-homepage seems only be available in German, so maybe thats the reason you didn't find anything.

    Cheers, TM

    I'd really like to help you out there, but there are A LOT of different sheets for all kind of things, e.g. correct installation of the swing-link, correct tires sizes, shock/travel set-ups etc. etc. etc.

    Take a look here and you see, what I mean: http://nicolai.net/download/service.html#owner

    I suggest you try one of those online-translators, I know, they translate it kinda "funny" , but IMO they became quite good in recent years and you understand it most of the time.

    If you still have questions, I'm more than glad to help you out.


    p.s. Maybe you guys could even send a "petition" for a proper translated owner-manuals-section to Falco or THE Man himself.

    Hi Testmaen, I see your point about the amount of work involved. I've fired off an e-mail
    to Mike at Nicolai UK and Falco. Thanks for the suggestion.
