BIKE CHECK: WHEN HE SAYS "ION A NICOLAI"

WHO'S RIDING WHAT: ANN WEI AND HIS NICOLAI ION-15 CUSTOM SHORT TRAVEL

 

 

We ride with Ann Wei often and has been ogling his very special bike for a while. When he did a recent brake set upgrade, we could hold on no longer –  it's just not fair to let such a beauty stay under the radar. And so, here's the bike check with his Nicolai Ion-15 Custom Short Travel, a one-of-its-kind bike that is built just for him.
