    Show me your other current bike(s)

    here's mine - they get much more use than the Nicolai as they're easier to clean and I'm a deep deep hard riding hardtail fan. especially Titanium hardtails



    hummer is currently being re-specced and re-built.

    Unfortunately, as you know it's not a Nic. No sooner do i build one for myself, someone goes off with it. there's a few culprits on here! (not that I'm complaing of course) I'll have to get pics of the new FR I'm building. In the meantime I'm riding the not so lean green machine. Still an awesome bike just a bit porky for trail use.

    My slightly modified 2005 Enduro. It started life as a regular SX Trail with Fifth Excrement coil shock. Then it gained a Fox DHX coil with Ti spring. In both guises it had 150mm front and rear. Then about a year ago I retro fitted a DHX Air shock to reduce the travel to 130mm and reduce the weight. It now rides so much better.

    Oh go on Whafe I can't believe you're the modest type

    I only have this crappy pic of my other bike. A Dialled Bikes Prince Albert. It's so good it went off a drop off last night without me, landed on it's wheels and carried on down the trail for a few metres. It's actually bright orange and not salmon

    Bought from HFTH by any chance? The combination of Nicolai and Dialled is a clue.

    As TLR says - The Nicolai was from Gravity Sports. The PA was direct from Dialled Bikes. Some pics from the HFTH website were used for inspiration though.

    Simon - No probs, give me a bell next week..

    Hey whafe, don't worry i've also got a lot of bikes, even if i'm still a student !
    Here is my "trial" bike, I don't use it really often, but it's very fun to ride with a trial bike, you can jump on the rear wheel as much as you want !



    And my new bike which should be at home tonight !!! A Sunn Kern lt, 160mm for enduro in my lovely mountains (which are under 50cm of snow today ....) I would have bought a helius AM if I had enough money, but now I can't afford it, so this bike will be perfect, elected for two years best enduro of the year by a french magazine !



    And of course I've got my Ion ST and my bmxtb...
    Never enough singletracks !

    Why that topic in a manufacturer related forum? Just to present yourself?

    This one is my favourite. The Helius FR is amazing, but the P7 go sweeeet and it never complains.

    In few weeks is gonna receive a serious update, probably the SXs from the Helius and a new Stem+Handlebar.

    Sorry, but I only have action photos. ;-)

    titopol - brilliant pics.
    my ex-girlfriend had an original P7 about 12 / 15 years ago - brilliant bike, my riding buddy still has one from back then too....the new one's are great - especially now they're designed around a 130mm fork

    It leaves me speechless constantly. It is a freak of nature. It does things that I never thought would be possible. It climbs, desends, handles like a dream........

    I absolutely love my 3.5 Nicolai's, but if I could only have one bike, I would choose the Jones for sure, wouldnt even think twice about the choice.....

    Yep, always the same argument. Interested to see other people's stuff but posting own stuff first. It's about being vain, right?
    I still don't see the point why other than Nicolai bikes have to be posted in a Nicolai specialized forum. Isn't there a gallery thread, for example!?

    Who cares - I think its a certain type of person who buys a Nicolai, and im keen to see what that type of person also has in their shed.

    If a Nicolai owner invests some cash in something other than a Nicolai then in my book it must be pretty good, thus worth sharing.

    Heres mine!



    Looking to get a big bike for the summer - Helius ST is in the running along with the Scott Gambler and Knolly V-Tach!

    whafey - i must agree - i have had all the 'best' suspension designs, but the Ti hardtails are simply the best option ime / imo.

    Here you go - my current hardtail, Cotic Soda. A very nice bike indeed, and with the Nic down and out at the moment, all I've got to ride right now!

    Yes, I have actually never put all my steeds together and done a group shot... Will have to sort it out. The ION ST is still in California. Need to get it back to New Zealand, thought I would be travelling back there, but didnt eventuate for the time being..

    Yes glad am not the only one that loves a blast on a HT bike....

    Still awaiting to see if Nicolai will be building a FS 29er, have asked, but have not heard any more in detail. Nicolai always said they would build one.

    The Nic is currently in my LBS, stripped down, with the plan being to ship the front triangle to Germany for repairs and a re-spray. My LBS is waiting for Nicolai UK to get back to him as we speak...I will let you know in due course how things pan out.

    I really like the Soda. I must say I didn't notice the flex when riding it on the trail and I ride it reasonably hard and commute on it a lot (well, until a few months ago when I picked up the morning nursery run a few days a week!). When I got it on the turbo recently and started looking down I could definitely see some flex down there. But I have to say I disagree wholeheartedly with a lot of the recent reviews (e,g, What mountain bike, MBR) who think it is too flexy on the trail. I just find it super comfortable and it handles fantastically on the singletrack. Having said that, I understand the Soda is temporarily off sale owing to some design changes to stiffen up the backend for '09. Before this I has a Pace RC303 (ok, but not too comfortable, over-rated IMO) which I snapped the seat tube on, and before that I had a Trek carbon hardtail, a 9.9. It was a nice bike for sure, but I trashed the frame in 2 months (carbon, over-rated material for mountain bike frames, again, IMO!!) - it left me phyiscally scarred, when I rode it and forget I wasn't on my full suss and went steaming over the bars with it following. Result: chainrings deep in the back of the calf). It also left me financially scarred as well!! Ti hardtails are definitely the way to go.

    Anyway, here we go, a few more pics as requested...

    interesting thT Cy has taken the SODA off sale until the stiffeners go in!
    when I initially enquired about the SODA, all he kept telling me was he'd FEA'd it to death and he was a structural engineer, well versed in design, etc .....
    my hummer is too stiff, the Ti 456 just sublime in comparison..
    keep showing us your other bike people - great to know who's riding what else

    Aight, check it out, my rides

    My favourite bike by far, my tiny Commencal street/skatepark and dirt bike:



    My highly modified city machine, 26" front wheel, 28" in the back, and just check out the pedals...it rocks hard :



    My old Cannondale, which has to go:

    Slightly rubbish pictures, but you'll get the idea:

    Specialized Epic Marathon, a few goodies on it and handed down to my son with the advent (timely punn!) of the Nicolai.

    Brompton - possibly the coolest form of transport on the planet?

    Scott Epic Racing - Aluminium single speed hard tail with new Mavic wheel set and Avid Juicy ultimate brakes and an On One SS conversion - weighs nothing and as hard as you like on your lower back..

    I've got a couple more of those city bikes rotting away, like every Amsterdammer should have . But they don't really qualify as bikes, more as disposable items. Proper road bike on the way though (more roads than mountains in Holland), but the Cannondale has got to go first.

    Balfa Minuteman - I got pissed off with breaking frames and having pivot probems on full sussers so I built up this dumb-ass hardtail... and it's now my usual ride... I love it and I doubt even I can break this. Not for big days in the hills unless I have to but for the local forest with it's bike breaking habit this is near perfect with it's BMX type fun ride. Seatposts are a problem though .



    Kona Explosif Singlespeed - owned since 1997- snapped at the driveside dropout and had track ends fitted by local frame builder (Alves). We've been through a lot together



    Tricked out retro Dave Lloyd CATS WISKAS - scary light and hence not for hard riding but beautifull on a sunny day out scorching the fireroads.

    I got it from kudu bikes - retail is £4000 but its an 08 and I got an end of season discount - they were offering them at 2800 and I got them down a bit more than that. Worked out less than a Nic and some forks
