Nicolai Helius AFR “R”.

October 28, 2010

Having a Quest for lesser maintenance for his group set compared its previous Truvative Hammerschmidt Set up, the owner went from 2×9, to 1 x14 with the 14 Speed Rohloff Speed Hub!


Now with “R” Spec’ed Helius AFR ( “R” for Rohloff )

Dropping the Cash Green XO group set & the Truvative Hammerschmidt for some Anodized Green RaceFace Atlas AM Crank set running a 34T single speed DH chain-ring on the Rohloff set up. RaceFace Atlas AM Bar and Twenty6 Direct mount stem all in anodized green as well!

As the old pair of seat stays were meant for 12mm TRAUX system, a pair of new seat stay in White has to be ordered from Nicolai to accommodate the Speed Hub with a Rohloff compatible drop out. It is so that no other mounting brackets/parts are needed to run the “R” set up.

The old wheel set was dumped for a custom build ZTR Flow rims in Specially Anodized Green to match the front Green Chrisking 20mm front hub and many other greens that follows! Special Green Bits from Kind Shock Adds on to the party and a new white Deity 34.9 bolt on seat clamp bring out the white from the rear seat stay and the Dual Crown 200mm RockShox Boxxer Worldcup fork up on the front.

With the new set up, we believe the owner should be doing some justice with this bike in his upcoming trip overseas for an epic ride in Thailand rather then our little island here with limited “hills” to go down! Drive train reliability is definitely not an issue now!
