Nicolai Helius AC – Golden Craftsmanship.

October 9, 2012

The Nicolai Helius AC is arguably one of the best selling Nicolai’s in Singapore alongside the longer travel Helius AM.  A lightweight frame with 120mm-150mm of adjustable rear travel, and a mix of Cross Country/All Mountain geometry makes it a perfect  ‘do-it-all’ bike for local trails.

This Anodized Black frame with Anodized Gold Extra Love options (rocker links, bolt covers, cable guides), was an upgrade over the owners previous 160mm Turner.

As you can see, the subtle bits of gold didn’t just stop there though, the rest of the components were selected to complement the frame, without going overboard.

A perfect example you see here are the gold Chris King hubs laced to black Atomlab Suprelite rims with Philwood spokes and gold Atomlab torque nipples. We even made sure the RockShox Revelation up front had custom decals so that everything matched!

The frame was spec’ed with Truvativ’s HammerSchmidt crankset that provided a reliable range of  gears and great clearance from the ground without having to run a dual chainring set up. Here’s a close up of Nicolai’s Pimp Kit for the HammerSchmidt cranks, in Anodized Gold of course.

When a frame comes out of the box as beautifully made as a Nicolai, there’s an even greater responsibility for us to ensure that the complete bike rolls out of the shop looking just as good, if not even better.

Just as Nicolai has shown us in the way their frames are crafted, it’s all in the details.
