    WTB: 27.5-compatible Nicolai

    Hi folks,

    Riding my 2010 Helius AC lately has me feeling a bit of big-wheel envy. If you are wanting to let your 27.5-compatible frame go, let me know!

    Thanks!

    I am in the process of building up a large (“longest”) G1 and will be selling my Long (“small”, for reference I’m 6’ (183 cm) tall) Nicolai Geometron very soon (frame, can come w shock(s) of your choice. I also have a fork, 2 27.5” wheelsets, numerous tires...
    Frame is plenty big for me, just trying something even bigger. It is a unique frame in that it has the same geometry as a Mojo Geometron but is made by Nicolai for Nicolai (not a “Mojo” branded frame; can send link to geo if desired; doubt you’ll find it by looking), custom Signal Blue.
    Rear shocks that will be available include an EXT Storia Lok v2, Fox Float X2 custom valved & upgraded by Craig at Avalanche, both in 8.75” x 2.75” flavor (yes, you can “long-shock” this frame). I also have a Bos Kirk and Cane Creek DB coil CS, both in 8.5 x 2.5” (stock size). Comes w Cane Creek headset, Race Face BB.
    Fork is a Fox 36 RC2 in stealth black, non-boost (like the frame), 20mm or 15mm axle, currently set at 170mm.
    Wheels are Roval Traverse SL carbon, and custom all-ano-blue I9 w straight pull alloy spokes, carbon LB 31mm rims. Both are in excellent shape and set up for XD driver, but can be converted to Shimano. The Roval set can be converted to boost with the Boostinator.
    Only selling because I’m making the switch to full 29”, full Boost. Oh, and this particular iteration of the Geometron lends itself particularly well to going Mullet (29” F, 27.5” R), which I ran for the past few months, and enjoyed.

    Hey Erik - sorry I missed your reply. Looks like a great bike, probably a bit more bike than I need though!

    Something along the lines of a 27.5 Helius AC is more my wheelhouse.

    Good luck with the sale!

    Thanks!
    For what it’s worth, this Geometron has 150 or 165 mm travel. Your Helius AC has 138 or 150. Not far off.
