James from Fisher Outdoor’s Nicolai 650b

I popped by the Fisher Outdoor expo yesterday to check out their newest offerings – but the stand out item wasn’t even for sale.

This brand new Nicolai belongs to James Leader, the brand manager for SRAM Mountain Bike. We can only assume any time outside the 9-5 he gets to ride this work of art. However, this might be a bit of a bold statement as I’m sure he puts the hours in at the office!

The bike is the first ever Nicolai 650b bike and is spec’d with the brand new dedicated 650b RockShox Revelation fork. Other stand out features are the headset, which is an extremely pricey Reset Racing number (it comes in at over €200). The gear outer and brake hoses are all colour matched to white – a fantastic touch – and I’m a big fan of going the extra mile just for aesthetics. Those with a keen eye will notice that the wheels don’t look quite right, that’s because SRAM haven’t released a 650b XX1 compatible wheelset – but James told Bike Magic to watch this space.

What do you think of this dream machine?
