    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?
    Please close.

    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!?

    OK Wharfe - you really need to post a 'Wharfe's Stable' picture, with all of your trusty steeds lined up.
