    Hmm....nothing new here really, just a tried and true design incorporating the ol' horst link. I think I like it though!

    seeing as how it says 'ION' right on the chainstay, i'm guessing no....

    Yeeeeehaawww!
    There is a thread over in custom bikes about this baby if ya want more.

    Nice bike, is to replace the old m-pire. Comparably priced and about 1lb less (still 13.5lbs with shock!!)

    Frame named "Ion" shock is vivid from rock shox. Most frames will come with a special shim stacked dhx coil.

    tight DH bike...check it out! http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=328306

    I doesn't!
    Prices in US, I will guess, would be around 2400-2600 with shock? Just a guess. PM Err and he might be able to hook you up. It is a little bit more than some but it is a Nicolai after all

    Looks like a larger Gran-Mal in blue.
    The rear shock is a RS Vivid, yes.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but that is a VPP link, not Horst...

    Nah, should be around 3K for the frame and shock full retail. The pricing on Nicolai frames is not nearly as inflated as internet rumor mills would have you believe.

    yeah, that sounds about right, just a bit heavier than a Helius-ST and a good bit lighter than an M-Pire.

    I like this one cause its the only one in they're line up that does'nt give me a headache when I try and figure out how the linkage actuates the shock.

    [QUOTE='Condor[ger] Do you have much other info etc. Almost seems like the bike is in production, or are these all test bikes?

    Do you work for Nicolai or ride for them?

    Nice seeing pictures of loads of Nicolai bikes....

    Dont see any Gboxx Nicolai's though, need to see more

    Looks like a highschool shop-class product. Small diam tubes coupled to gussets that look to be made with whatever scrap metal was layin around. Maybe it rides great, but common.... 3K??

    Somewhat of an interesting post Dr E..... Each to there own, but in my opinion, no offence, but you dont really know what you are talking about....

    What a speculating in all honesty about the small tubes, are you saying that the frame will not be strong? Let us in on your theory, am keen to be sold on it...........

    A lot of the price will have to do with the current exchange rate between the Euro and the Dollar. Most bikes cost here in euro's what they will cost in dollars in the states. As the Nicolai is made here, it will cost quite a bit more. Hand made in Germany does not come cheap.

    I don't doubt the strength.
    In this day and age, $3K should buy you a lot more. Look at the offerings from Santra Cruz, Intense, Foes, etc! Moncoque construction, VPP design (if that's your thing), and an esthetically pleasing design.
    This frame is barebones - it looks like a children's erector set. The gusseting looks like an afterthought. "Lets see, we have some leftover 1/4" plate... I know, lets weld some of it to the headtube!"
    I'd expect a higher level of design for $3000, that's all I'm sayin. Nothing against those who have them, enjoy them, ride them, etc.
    On the other hand, this company is one of the most progressive when it comes to the gearbox bikes (which is very impressive to me - I wish more manufacturers would put some effort into gearbox bikes). The paradox is a little ironic.

    To each his own, but you are perhaps oversimplifying the design and suggesting that it is cobbled together. The styling of the frame seems to be a sticking point for you and I can completely understand that. However, the strength and functionality can not be called into question. You are correct that they are very progressive with their G-BOXX design but they have also been on the cutting edge of frame design for years. Specifically Nicolai has excelled at getting the correct geometry matched to the correct suspension design for top performance. Additionally, they have put together the correct combination of tubesets, gussets, and bearings to maintain ultimate reliability. Finally, they back it up with a 5 year transferable warranty.

    Ive seen souped up beemers, mustangs, and hondas that could kick the fat red ass of most ferraris for a fraction of the price.
    Who buys these 'super' bikes? Must be a VERY small percentage of the mtb community. The rest of us probably ride just as well on bikes that cost as much as that frame.
    Its all good if ya got the bling.. but nobody can tell me that that bike will last longer or ride better then a bike half the price.
    Id probably buy one if i had the dough though

    Dr E, thank you for your reply, I now have an insight to where your thoughts lie... I have a Nicolai GBoxx steed. You are entitled to your thoughts etc on the technology involved in the above mentioned manufacturers. I have owned a Santa Cruz VP Free and an Intense Uzzi, not a Foes. To be totally honest with you, and you may call me biased. Am just being honest. The build quality on this frame leaves both Intense and Santa Cruz for dead... Funnily enough, the Santa Cruz build quality was far better than the Intense.... Yep indeed 3K is expensive to many. Nicolai are not after selling frames to the masses. They are an interesting company when some research is done on them in general. It is almost like they build frames for themselves and dont follow the percieved trends out there.

    As Err mentioned, not many frame builders will give a 5 year warranty under race conditions....

    If we ever cross paths anywhere, be grea tfor you to take my Nicolai Nucleon GBoxx for a blast, you will be very surprised. You may in fact get some wood in your life.....

    All good

    Azonic or Nicolai... The two do not even compare! The Azonic may "look" like the Nico and vice versa but the Nicolai has the Azonic beat hands down, aesthetics, build etc are all killer.

    I'd love to try out a gearbox bike. That's the future right there; I just wish it would come sooner. I'll pass on the wood offer, however!

    5 year warranty is indeed impressive, however with gussets like that it should last forever!

    I think it's only a matter of time before Nicolai adapts this more trendy design to a more radical one with a G-Box.

    I'd expect a higher level of design for $3000, that's all I'm sayin. Nothing against those who have them, enjoy them, ride them, etc.
    On the other hand, this company is one of the most progressive when it comes to the gearbox bikes (which is very impressive to me - I wish more manufacturers would put some effort into gearbox bikes). The paradox is a little ironic.
    You're one of those form over function guys, ain't you? Swoopy, hydroformed, tubes does not necessarily equal better R&D, engineering, or value for the money. It mostly just gives the marketing guys something to prattle on about.

    Heh, I'm all about form AND function - especially when dropping big bucks. If you like spending big bucks on ugly stuff, then that's your MO. Maybe you can transport your Nicolai with its automobile equivalent:

    Over here in Germany an Intense M3 Frame costs ~3600 Euros (4900 US$), the M6 will cost 4100 Euros, Ironhorse Sunday 3000 Euros, Santa Cruz V10 3300 Euros, Giant Glory DH 2500 Euros,

    I think, the price for the Nicolai Ion ST (2500 Euros) is ok for what you get.

    I think I understand your problem now. I'm interested in a DH race bike, not some wall flower that never gets off the road. Something more along these lines would be it's automobile equivalent:

    err, thanks
    I must have missed the numbers...where the hell did they go? they were on here yesterday! looked really damn good! Wonder if the BB is hella low again on this one too?
    Anyone know why the special shim stack in the dhx on the stock bike...or this just speculation?

    I am thinking this would be super nice with a big single crown fork like a totem coil and a vivid in the back...galvanized fork and raw frame...aahhhh jesus...

    If I contact you toni....tell me to get lost you are not getting me an ion

    Actually DWF, the G-wagen is quite capable offroad. Apparently you've not been exposed to that type of thing. I think it makes a nice analogy as an equally ugly, expensive, yet fairly capable piece of German engineering.

    I'll bet most of the people who own these things can't use the cars full potential in anything but a straight line, so why have them?


    BTW, what does that have to do with anything?
