Nicolai Saturn 14 REINFORCED TUBESET + GUSSETS VideoDREAM BUILD MTB - Nicolai Saturn 14 ST \ 11/3/ · Nicolai's Saturn 14 was released in April as a mm trail bike that combined the progressive geometry of its G13 Geolution chassis with the attitude of its shorter travel platforms like. 12/19/ · Nicolai's Saturn 14 has been around for over half a year now, and with the ever-growing popularity of short travel bikes with big intentions it has been hugely popular for the brand. So much so. 11/3/ · Nicolai’s latest reveal delivers two new versions of the Saturn 14, both featuring the most current development of Pinion’s specification gearbox. There is a standard Saturn 14 and the slightly burlier ‘ST’ version, with its reinforced construction.
Doing the first oil change in close to 10 months. Gear box takes a few hundred km to break in but the weight is in the miiddle of the bike and the positives far out weigh the marginal weight differences of a standard set up I thought Nicolai was releasing its own proprietary gearbox design?
I want a durable lightweight 2-speed gearbox that would work Hammerschmidt-like with a cheap-to-replace 8 or 9 spd derailleur system.
This is nuts. Nwsurfkid Nov 3, at Can a fatty belt hold up in muddy pine needles though? Wonder if the belt lugs can get packed up like a greasy tire?
Doogster Nov 3, at I want it. I think I'd prefer chain drive though. MacRamsay Nov 3, at Davec85 Nov 3, at It's a tension bar to increase fatigue strength, details on their website.
Thib67 Nov 3, at MacRamsay : look at the type of mechanical contact on the teeth. The chain on the pinion teeth is a point that rubs on a roller.
Looks like ehrm Makes me wonder, Nicolai does produces aluminum parts for other frame manufacturers. Does Nicolai actually produce the rocker for said Vertigo?
It looks pretty similar. I think think this is one sweet ride and the cable routing is off the hook. IEver since I destroyed 2 sets of housing decade a go I stopped buying bikes with under carriage routing.
Hit a rock or hard tree branch and bye bye rear mech. Two dead rides ended my GT reign This is the 1st gear box ride I have wanted to try out.
Well done with the head tube angle as well. I had no idea that I needed a new bike, but now I'm convinced that I need a new bike. What's the little black arm from the lower shock bolt to the main link pivot?
I was wondering as well Does everyone realize that you can buy a chairing and cog so you can still run a chain It just doesn't make sense.
Kramz Nov 4, at Perfect opportunity to have a perfect drivetrain. Every ones like yes yes yes gearbox bike.. And then thay see the belt Holy hell that's beautiful but probably weighs the same as an ebike.
It definitely weighs more, but it's not as much as it seems. The entire drivetrain is included in the Nicolai's weight. For reference, the published weights of a Shimano XT M drivetrain is a hair under 2kg.
So when you do a ballpark comparison to a traditional aluminum frame we'll use a Banshee Prime - 29er, mm travel , you have to take the weight of the frame 3.
Also, the weight distribution is important to remember: the bulk of that additional weight is low and center, not at the rear axle.
Every Pinkbike e-engineer will tell you that's better. I mean, the real question is: where does the water bottle go?
On the water bottle mounts in the front triangle. See the pictures of cable routing - its on the clamps. The double cable clamps look like they are the right spacing for a bottle cage.
FastRiding Nov 3, at Don't forget that chain have a better efficiency than belts. Yeah don't think that's true bud, unless you can back it up, everything I've seen says the opposite.
That said, belts are likely to have an advantage when the conditions get nasty as all those chain links tend to accrue mud and grit while a belt sheds it.
Milko3D : interesting read thanks! Milko3D : is 50 rpms considered high power output? I've never measured my output or cadence.
True to its boutique frame brand values, these new Saturn 14s have impressive adaptability. All possible combinations of the Is the belt tensioner just behind the cranks spring loaded?
I assume its easy to remove the rear wheel to fix a puncture? The P1. When I had a p1. Interesting that those are the two options — last time I looked the P1.
But maybe the gear spacing starts to get a bit too wide? If the member you are referring to is MTQGraham he destroyed stuff at a rate that made his experience irrelevant to me.
This is making me think: yes, that Canfield Nimble 9 hardtail singlespeed is what I really fancy! In three words:. We have a great deal of experience.
In my opinion, it borders on insulting customers to announce a bike as a novelty in one year and to discontinue the same model as a discontinued model next year.
Straight drawn round tubes paired with elaborate CNC milled parts and beautiful detail solutions result in a frame design that will please even after many years.
I call it that:. Durability and value stability The manufacture of products close to the customer is environmentally friendly. This applies to bread, milk, meat and any other product.
And it applies above all to large objects. I do not want to transport bulky bicycle frames, which consist almost exclusively of air, in containers across the oceans.
I just want to produce the things that are needed. Worn phrase:. The bike is designed, prototypes built and tested until we are satisfied.
The feedback of our team riders, our customers and our own experience as bikers is incorporated. Our goal is always the same: To make best function, durability, reliability and the good better.
Every Nicolai frame can be produced in any colour according to your preferences. Choose from different frame colours, anodised colours for reversing levers and pull holders as well as frame decor to add your individual touch to the frame.
Frame color: Powder coated, anodized or factory-raw — you decide what your frame looks like. Powder coating is a melted plastic coating that is significantly more resistant to scratching and impact than conventional coatings.
Anodising is an electrochemical process used to colour the surface of aluminium. The oxide layer is even harder and more scratch-resistant than any powder coating.
Additional weight is not applied during anodising. However, the thin oxide layer can be penetrated more easily.
With a powder coating or lacquer you can hide flaws in the surface. Scratches, scoring and tool marks can be filled and smoothed like skin folds with make-up.
An anodizing does not hide anything, reveals every flaw; the brighter the anodizing tone, the clearer. This is why different colours are produced on welded frames during anodising.
The frames are not coated after production, but move directly to assembly. You get your frame without coating also no clear lacquer. With the help of a polishing fleece, however, the old shine can be restored in a few easy steps.
The decors are available in different colours and finishes — you decide. We offer various anodising colours with which you can refine your bike. Due to the process, there may be colour deviations between the components of light anodised colours due to material properties.
You can order, pay for and pick up your tailor made frame directly from us or from your Nicolai dealer. For technical details, please contact us directly.
