Jim


AC 29er. Tailormade with front suspension reduced to 80cm. Dynamo rear hub ? Do these hubs exist ? never seen one.
No, it's a Rohloff Speedhub. Swapped the wheelset over from my old bike. As I did with most of the other bits and pieces.

Don't be conned, cf cable ties are the same weight as boring old plastic. I found out the hard way, I'll never get that dollar back :(

This frame: http://www.nicolai.net/161-1-Helius+AC+29.html ? If I was buying out-of-the-ordinary MTB it'd be Yeti or Nicolai!

Hi Jim

Yepp, that's the one. After having a couple of chats with the Nicolai guys we found out that I don't need that much travel (120-150) and they
gave me a few very good advices. Very helpful and I got exactly what I want.
Thought about going for the Pinion Gear box first but I had the Rohloff wheelset anyway and it is working excellent.....maybe with the next bike I'll go for
Pinion.
Pinion has problems to deliver their gear box to the bike manufacturers because a few bits, made by automotive suppliers , aren't coming
in. Bit bad, but this is not their fault. Estimated delivery time is now at the beginning of August.

I can highly recommend Nicolai. Bit dodgy in communication sometimes because they have a very restrictive Spam filter in their E-mail system, but a quick
phone call is solving all problems. Give them a AAA.

So far I think about changing the Manitou fork with my old german-a fork and put the Manitou back into the old frame to make up a "shopping-going to work single speed bike" with lower stealing risk. :-))) Therefore I need to change the bottom part of the fork from 26" to 29".
If you don't know what fork I'm talking about have a look here..... http://www.german-a.de/en/kilo.html .That would make the look of the complete bike
a bit more slim. :) .
I'll see if this is possible. If not, the world will not go down :D .

Thanks. Great ride!

My front lights are Ayups, but they are not red or black as I chose green, which didn't clash with my previous silver/grey roadie. They can be angled forward as in my photo, so they are at the same height as the handlebars. Seems to look better on road bars.

I will take a stab at it being a ride added to Strava that was a stack of rides added up maybe due to not having a GPS or similar. I think the highest NPCCI I have seen that was legit was 160.

Luckily I had my SPD shoes (recessed cleats) on as it was a mad scrabble over the loose ballast to set it up before the light ran away again (which it did)............ yes, clouds brooding, def. tights weather...........

Yep, a few people have done the same. No real issues that I can see. The NPCCI is just a bit of fun I developed to see how epic peoples rides were.

Love the bike and love the fact you set the bike up for the photo. Kudos.

Maybe a smaller cog on the back is the only issue I see. :) That is being picky though.
