Retro Nicolai – The Good Old Days..

May 12, 2009

Nicolai are pioneers in the sport of Mountain Biking. In the engineering side of things, they have come up with some of the most timeless designs, most of which are still used on their current line up of frames. It sometimes makes me wonder why is it that when people see the bikes, they say ”never heard of Nicolai” …. Where they were, who they are and what they do best ?

Here is a photo of Leigh Donovan (1995 WORLD CHAMPION) on a Nicolai frame re-badged as a Mongoose. The shock too was made by Nicolai.

Similarities with the current Helius range:
* Top tube down tube gusset
* Horst link
* Shock placement
* Square tubing

PS: Oh, its a girl by the way 🙂
