Nicolai Helius AM 29ner

January 26, 2011

With the New trend of using 29″ wheels and the growth of support from many bike manufacturers producing more and more 29ner complete bikes, frames and parts. 29ner has become the new hot topic in groups, forums, everywhere!

Follow through the success of the Nicolai Helius AC 29ner custom builds requested all over the world, we are not surprise that Nicolai now have taken one step further to develop a 29ner version of their best selling platform model and with many success models developed ( AC, AFR , Nucleon AM)- Nicolai Heilus AM –

What we know so far is that the main frame used is the same as the AC 29ners. but with a Helius AFR rear triangle to accommodate longer travel up to 150mm on the rear suspension!

It will be interesting to see what parts will be used on this build and the eventual outcome of the looks and the ride quality of this beauty!
