Nicolai G1 4

Nicolai G1
Nicolai G1 Because I like to carry a bit of Prince with me Weldy McWeldface Dunno what the little threaded thing is for. Nicolai G1 Nicolai G1 Nicolai G1 10mm chip in there at the moment to run 27" wheels.
Much bigger upper rocker bearings than the G16. No additional caption necessary 453mm chainstay chips.  They're what come with a Large frame, but I might try the "short" 445mm chips later You can run the cables either fully external (as I have) or under the shock mount.  Either option has nicely machined, bolt up clamps. 5mm thick, solid alu shock plates Widely spaced pivot bearings Did I mention this thing is chunky?

Additional Info Built in a rush, because it arrived literally 1 day before a trip to Finale. Zero carbon parts. This G1 frame was a replacement from Nicolai for my previous G16 that err, "met an unfortunate end". I didn't get the EXT shock simply due to budget. This is a warranty replacement frame, but I still had to buy the Fox shock so it wasn't free (thanks metric shocks!) I haven't had chance to ride it yet, but early noticeable differences are - firstly it's a lot heavier than the G16, because it's a LOT chunkier. Pretty much every tube is wider and thicker. The chainstay yoke is particularly massive, even the shock plates are 5mm thick solid alu. I weighed the frame and shock at 4.7Kg, that's 1.2Kg heavier than stated on the Nicolai website, which is a bit cheeky. And secondly, a quick car park ride it already feels a lot more different to the G16 than I expected. It actually feels smaller? But that might be the saddle that needs moving backwards.
