NS Bikes 2014 preview at Ride It Out

Ride it Out ( crew stopped by our booth at Eurobike and put together a nice piece on our 2014 NS Bikes downhill and enduro gear.


"Polish brand NS have a product range that expands year on year, and for 2014 they go all the way with the release of their first downhill frame. You may have seen prototype versions of the bike, but we got our hands on the finished product.




Built around a Horst link design, the Fuzz will come as a frame only option as well as 2 complete builds, the Fuzz 1 & Fuzz 2. We took a look at the Fuzz 1 with it’s signature NS black/yellow/green paintjob. The frames will come in 3 sizes, all using the same rear end, with chainstays adjustable between 420 & 438mm, but with 3 different top tube lengths, all coming in with a slack 63.5 degree head angle.




The rear end uses a 12mm bolt through with 157mm axle, with a 83mm bottom bracket shell. The frames feature optional internal cable routing, but for those not wanting the hassle there are removable cable mounts on the outside too.




The frame only option will come with an adjustable headset giving more head angle options, the complete bikes coming with a standard headset. The top end Fuzz 1 will feature Boxxer forks, Avid Code brakes & Sram X7 gearing, while the cheaper Fuzz 2 gets lower grade Sram componentry & Domain forks."
