    I read 'as naked as the day I was born', was preparing myself for the worst wondering if I should have clicked on the topc...

    No **** mate, I guess you can never have enough Nicolais . I do really like the machined N in the headtube, gives it some extra class. Ion ST it was right? Not going for a Karve like finish, and keeping it more raw like on the pics I take it?

    That's an Ion ST, and it is going to be really beautiful ! You've made the good choice to wait for the next version of the Ion g-box !

    Naked is a good look for sure.
    Looking like the Nicolai forum is on for yet 1 more steed to the Whafe fleet of dream machines.
    Good work that man.
    More photos of this needed...

    Next week she will be built. Was not going to say anything at all till she was built, but hey, wanted to share the joy....

    Will go into the build later.... Most items will come off my other Nicolai Nucleon etc... Well what can come off of a GBoxx bike... LOL....

    Fork, brakes, front wheel, am rebuilding the rear wheel with a normal hub etc....

    Thanks for the comments.... The first raw frame to come out of the Nicolai factory.... it is yummy....

    Wow, I just had a second look at the welds, that is some serious coin there! Looks like someone lined up a roll of overlapping US nickels.

    The ION makes every other DH bike look like a flexy Huffy.
