    same gussetry, same linkage / pivot location ?
    what are the differences (if any) ?

    seriously - thoe welds are purely fishscale monsters.
    for true artisan welding, you should see my Lynskey Ti.

    What are those pieces on the chainstay anyway?
    I saw them on an AM frame on the Nicolai site and could not figure out the function.

    what's changed on the cable mounts? cables routed along the down tube and chainstays instead?
    also the shcmidt mount, is that the same as the iscg 05 mount?

    cheers

    you can see the plastic piece is for chain slap i guess. but it acts as a cable guide for Rear D and pretty much solve the old problems when its ran onto of the seat stay which cases cable rubs.

    rpm-100, so far when we order the frame with hammer it says ther ISCG 03 mounts . :?

    I think I prefer the routing on the 09 a la down the seat stays.

    Ozzy, What cable rub issues if any do you get with this set up?

    Thanks attitudebikes , im in oz (Australia) Tyres have now been changed to 2.5 WTB Weirwolfs due to the recent rains

    Rpm100 , I missed a bit of helicopter tape out at the beginning and it rubbed through to the alu , when riding if you look down at the rear brake line it is touching the frame ..... but get the bike all helicopter taped before riding it and all should be good . So no issues now

    see topic To new owners - Dont forget Helicopter tape as part of you Nicolai build

    Do you really need the seat there? Looks bad for the rail seats life, and not brilliant for the post bushings either.

    I think RAPIT's point is that the seat is so far back on a set back post. There must be pretty big loads bending the seat rails. Don't know how much extra stress that would put on the post.

    (I put a set back post on one bike because the seat tube angle forced me to mount the seat so far back on a straight post that the seat rails were beginning to bend.)
