Nicolai Ion 14 – Trail Build.

February 1, 2012

Here’s one of the 4 Nicolai Ion 14 we have receive in the first Nicolai Shipment of the year. They could very possibly be the first few pieces out of the factory at this moment.

Finished in Nicolai Gates team blue (Sky blue) and red anodized extra-love linkage and parts, there no doubt this beauty resembles the race machines Nicolai factory riders were riding for year 2011.

Build more for trail riding as a shorter travel alternative over the owner’s Nicolai Nucleon AM with a similar color scheme, we had the longer travel setting for him with a lowered RockShox Lyric fork on the front and a 200x57mm rear shock on the 125mm travel mounting hole.

Stopping power comes from a set of Magura Marta FR brakes on 180mm front and rear SL rotors. With Sram XO 10speed group-set propelling the bike with the aid of the 2 speed internal Truvative Hammerchidmt Crank-set.

A dual purpose frame with more build possibilities then this Ion 14 and WildFire, not forgetting the different variable ride characteristic for us to explore. We just got ourselves excited as to what will be the other two more Ion 14 build going to be base on and how its going to turn out.
