Steel. Geometry. Quality.

Weakness:

Paint easily chips

Love this bike. Upgraded from an OnOne 456 Evo II, and the geometry on the NS just us amazing for aggressive trail riding or even some rounds on the DH track. The bikes 650b wheels maintain momentum, and the short chainstays, slack low geo is stable, flickable, and begs to be ridden hard! The steel is of good quality as well. I purchased the frame only and built it up. If you ride hard, do manuals, jumps, and shred on the trails, you cant go wrong with the NS eccentric. I still feel like im on a 26er but on steroids!

Weakness:

A bit steep on the seat angle

This frame ticks off all the boxes for a fun all mountain do anything hardtail. Long, low, slack, threaded bb, iscg tabs, oversize head tube and a stealth option on the seat post. You can run this ( I have the alloy version) with the supplied 12x142 or 10x135, and the rear is very short for a day on the jumps or an all epic in the high country. The only gripe I have about this bike is the seat angle, it is a bit steep, which is great for steep seated climbing but I don't do much of that since this frame begs you to stand and grind. The steep angle makes fun wheelies in the parking lot and up and down the neighborhood a little bit more difficult. All in all this bike is more fun than it really should be. I have some great dualies gathering dust in the garage as this bike makes me feel like a kid again..
