Hey, I didn't know there was such a forum about Nicolai here !

I'm a big fan since 2002.
I got my first Nicolai in 2006, an Mpire ST and since the familly has grown !
There's also an Helius FR 2008 and a UFO ST 2007.
Probably getting an Helius CC in 2009

Here are some pix of the beasts.







the UFO is being currently re-painted and is waiting for the new components from Sram and Co

The Helius FR is a Tailor made, the top tube is a M size, the seat tube is a S size and the head angle is 66° and also it's quite flashy, thanks to Jan for that who did a wonderfull job, and thanks for painting the shock also !

I was checking French websites mostly for Nicolai, but I'll be here more often, it's always nice to share passion with others ;) ;) ;)

I got a little up grade on my FR.
A Gravity Dropper Turbo 4" (10cm).
No I don't have 2 saddles on my bike, it's just a bit of photoshop to show the 2 positions of the saddle while using the Gravity Dropper !

It's an amazing thing and changes your ride for sure !

Ready for the Mega and other enduro races for 2009 now !

I'm 1m85, if my memory is good, it's something like 6 foot 1 and 4" on the GD is far enough for me.
The KS is 125mm, 5". it offers more clearance, sure, but the cable is on the top part, so you've got that cable rubbing your frame each time, while here with the GD, you fix it and it's over !

I'm planning on getting a GD also for my next Helius CC.
