NS Bikes, a small but rapidly growing European company that specializes in dirt, street and freeride bike equipment is announcing their brand new product line, new website and has some great news for American and Canadian customers who have been trying to get their hands on these products for some time. It’s official - NS have set up their distribution networks in Canada (Lamacycles - www.lamacycles.com) and in the US (BTI - www.bti-usa.com). As you’re reading this, all their new products should be arriving to their warehouses.

The guys at NS have been very busy lately. The variety of their product line gets bigger each year and as always, is original and unique. Here are the highlights of their new 2007 product line:

NS Capital


Build from double butted 4130 tubing made from Sanko steel (Japan), with super short chainstays and lighter CNC machined dropouts, weighs less than 6lbs. This radical frame is compatible only with 24” wheels, v-brakes and 14mm axle hubs with 110 OLD.

NS Suburban


This is NS Bikes’ top street / dirt frame that has been a favorite among European riders for a few seasons now. It’s made using custom drawn, triple butted, heat treated 4130 tubing from Sanko steel (Japan) and goes through a special heat treating process after welding. All this adds up to a really light and super strong frame. The Suburban has undergone some refreshing for 2007. It now features a slightly steeper head angle for more responsiveness and maneuverability. The frame now has more material in the tubes for extra dent-proofing, however this does not effect the weight of the complete frame because there has been some major weight saving in the tasty CNC machined dropouts.

NS District


The same hi-end steel was also used to build the new NS Bikes handlebar for most demanding dirt/street riders. The bar is 66cm wide and is available in two heights - 60 and 85mm. The special feature of this bar is the very narrow center part, so even after this bar has been cut down radically there is still space for levers and grips.

New colors, refreshed products:

Most 2007 products are available in a pretty wild color range. Check out the selection of the new re-designed Quark stems.


The Legeater pedals now come in 5 different colors, are lighter than last years models and have a cool little “anti-spin” feature that will make “foot-off” tricks easier.


Company news

Complete NS Bikes product range and detailed specs can be found on their new website. Company news, galleries, movies and much more. Go to www.nsbikes.com and www.myspace.com/nsbikesco



For 2007 NS have re-signed with a young and promising rider Wojtek Gola and are working closely with many dirt-street specialists who choose to ride their frames. NS is now available in over 25 countries around the world.

 ps : "The new 2007 arrivals are stunning. With newly designed parts, refined graphics, extensive color choices and well built complete bikes, Ns has assured itself an enviable place on the Canadian market." ------- This is garbage. Does graphics or paint really make a frame that much better. who the hell cares. Why dont people learn from companies like standard, kink, primo, and 2 hip and just keep it simple. I doubt any one that has a clue would buy a bike just for the graphics, or colors. I want true quality and performance over looks.

 Hah... and who said that top quality can't really go with awesome looks? I've these gear on a bike show this weekend and it looked great. People like to have a choice while building their bike. I want my ride to be not only good and reliable but also original. Check out their products from previous years... they were simple and clean without any graphics but now it evolved because thats what riders demand.

NS looks like they make a bit different bikes then pure BMX manufacturers like standard, kink, primo. Capital frame looks like its a mix between bmx and mtb frame giving people choice while building a bike. Suburban and Bitch are true MTB frames - so why "all the hype" you're doing?

 Hi. In only few monts I broke 3 dabomb frames (1alu & 2 cromo) just before I get first prototype of streetlegal for tests. It was in 2002/2003. I wont tell more, because I test for NS, and I'm not here to defent the company. Let the products defend themselves if they could. And primarly their function not color.

 T3h1337r - you're soooo full of shit ! I bet you haven't seen or tried any of NS stuff. The Suburban is one of the lightest (2.4 kg) cro-mo frames around and geometry is awsome for street and dirt riding. Also, haven't seen any of them broken while my dabomb grenade after one year riding cracked under headtube. anyways, the suburban is the ultimate 26'' street/dirt cromo frame.

 NS is honesty company but their parts(mainly frame Suburban) aren't strong;/ In Poland many ofpeoples broken this frame.
Maybe 2007 year bring stronger frames...

 lol all the hype. They are poser big wheeled bmx bikes. Cant they atleast try and make a mtb spec'd capable urban bike instead of putting bmx characteristics in a frame. Ive never seen a steelhead break, or a dabomb. And they somehow keep to the mtb sizes and parts, instead or running bmx spacings. O well, good to see yet another company try to make a name for themselves. Sad to say but most fail. Hense why there are only a few top quality non overseas brands around.
