    They cater to people 210cm tall, with a bike with a reach of 570mm (for the 29er – lets be honest, no-one a hair off 7ft tall will be running 27.5), and a wb of 1391mm.

    Wonder how many of those they’re aiming to sell?

    Not that I will get one but are the frame sizes missing from the top of the table shown?

    They are indeed, full info on their tech sheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/1/d/e/2PACX-1vTLbwN9LqbrNpG5BN9b5Iqwm45bmMFH0xbwFMi-ylaACQZ3tQ93VUP5_I0PgWiyBpRbEWGhQWL_QV0u/pubhtml#

    small – medium – large – x-large – xx-large – xxx-large

    Scary to think that at 187cm I’d not be on their biggest size (I’d go XL). Unlikely to be buying one, not because I don’t REALLY want one but because I’ve got a Saturn 14 and it’s more than enough bike for me.

    Those reach numbers are ridiculous. Longer than the G series.

    Struggling to see where this fits in their line-up, if the main difference between the G1 is head tube angle why not just supply some headset cups?

    490 reach with a 440 ST and a 78.25 STA sounds pretty sensible to me. A long but not crazy long medium.

    That’s stunning, thought they’d have gone for an eight pins dropper though!

    That CNC machining is pure filth.

    At 6ft 3in, I’d ‘only’ be on an XL, I’m normally on the biggest size on most bikes!

    Knowing how few new models Nicolai release, this could be a replacement for my jeffsy in a year or 2.
