    Just because this is the baddest arse bike on the planet and it's the one that ultimately made me decide to get mine. I don't know jack about it as it belongs to a Nicolai team rider!

    Last shot I had, it has changed a little bit since then.

    Unfortunately it's back at Nicolai for warranty at the moment, it seems the Fort William World Cup track dished out more abuse than it could take

    Here in Finland we have snow only in Lapland (Santaland ) Just can`t wait a real winter, it`s fun to ride on icy trails.

    Karve, You need to go pretty fast. I start fairly near the top and give it about 5-6 hard pedal strokes. You could do it alittle slower but it's always best to go too fast than too slow! http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/3128459997/

    I might be up on Sunday. I'll try to give you a shout next time I'm heading there.

    What bike do you ride?

    I hope you don't mind, but I may consider that black and white for my new FR colour scheme. I would love to know how that UFO would look if the Boxters were gloss black...... Now that would look just the best! I am liking the UFO ST more each day and am pretty sure that this will be my next project.

    Can I ask how tall you are on your large size. I am about 6 ft 4 and wonder whether a large will be big enough for me, any thoughts?

    some crazy set up there !!!
    I was wondering, I've got a DHX5 coil on mine. I ordered a Vivid and also the new WC Boxxer.
    I was wondering how does the frame work with a DHX5 Air ?
    There's a lot of weight saving using a DHX 5 Air, but does it work really well with this frame ?

    Just to know ?

    Thanks

    I will post a pic of mine up here soon. in the mean time can anyone help me with a problem i've just encountered. i'm wanting to run my frame low and slack but when i get up to the third hole (so 75% slack) the bolt under the shock is too short. obviously running it with only a couple of threads in isn't a good idea either so i can't get anywhere near to the geometry i want. looking through the pics on here there is at least one bike in the lowest and slackest position and the bolt is clearly screwed in fine. am i missing something here or has the previous owner replaced this bolt or what?
    Thanks
    Wattsy

    One question, it's possible mount a front derraileur in the UFO ST (the last version). How is it? (any pic?)

    There is a tower you need to buy and mount right behind the ST. This isn't the UFO, but it will look like this
