Nicolai have been offering custom made framesets for many years but their latest collaboration with Mojo Suspension sees things taken a little further offering bikes which will be of particular interest to riders over six foot with their own long, longer, longest geometry which are bigger than many other frames available on the market. Shorter riders might still want to consider a standard custom Nicolai bike but for many from 5’ 10” upwards the Mojo/Nicolai Geometron needs some serious consideration for it is a unique package.
More than this, Mojo offer personal customisation with the Geometron. Before this begins the bike already comes with a slack head angle at 62 – 63.5 depending on fork length, a low bottom bracket around the 340mm mark and a steeper than normal seat angle to enable riders to get over the front of the bike on climbs. One of the startling strong points of this bike are its stable climbing qualities but still, its certainly a bike that takes a while to get used to simply because many have become accustomed to much smaller frames than what’s on offer here.
After the initial getting-used-to phase, riders can then have the option to get involved further, more detailed bar, stem, damper, fork set-up with the Mojo team. Differing bar widths and heights as well as positions, varying stem lengths and stacks as well as the option of the unbeatable Fox 36 fork in versions between 160 and 180mm.
“Its strength is very much on descending with its long low chassis as well as the aforementioned stable climbing traits”
With 155mm of rear travel, the Geometron is clearly aimed at enduro style riding with continuous climbing and descending. Its strength is very much on descending with its long low chassis as well as the aforementioned stable climbing traits. On flatter terrain the Geometron can be a handful so bear in mind where and how you’ll be riding the bike. In short it needs big terrain to get the best out of it.
