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
