NS Bikes Analog Oct 18, 2009

Probably the biggest news I got hold of this weekend was the NS Bikes Analog. They’re releasing a complete bike (pictured above, specs below) and still having the option to purchase the frame or fork (below). Looks good so far. Specs and images via NS Bikes.

ANALOG COMPLETE BIKE
The Analog is a complete bike based on the Analog aftermarket frame and fork. It’s a pure fixed gear freestyle bike, it is not a traditional track bike! It’s strong enough to trick, but still very light. The bikes is built around a frame with the same geometry as the aftermarket Analog frame and uses the same tubes as our dirt jumping frames. The fork is also made by NS and it’s geometry and overall function correspond with the aftermarket Analog fork. The bike is fitted with out with a nice selection of parts and has is in essence, a radical no-compromise trick-track bike that can also function as a great bike for high-speed everyday commuting. We made sure that this new bikes gets the same attention to detail and the same focused design as all our other products.

ANALOG FRAME
The Analog is our all-new premium level tricks frame. It has many of the features that we used to make the lightest dirt jumping frames on the market: the Majesty and Suburban. You will get an ovally machined headtube for weigh saving, our really special high-end tubeset with offset multi butting (this means that the tubes are round from the outside, but inside you will find a lot of complex thickness changes). The tubing is 100% cromoly made by Tange Japan, and what’s most important, trick specific geometry. This means you can run 38×700 tires, you can barspin and still have a crisp geometry. Like all our frames, the analog has a super clean minimalistic design. This Analog is designed to be used with a short reach stem (40-60mm) and will handle just about any abuse that you can dish out. You can build the Analog frame into a radical trick-track bike that can also function as a great bike for high-speed everyday commuting.

ANALOG FORK
Our RNS and Fundamental forks are a common sight in loads of trick-track bikes, so we decided to take these products one step further and make a fork specifically designed for fixed gear trick bikes. You will get a lower axle to crown height than on MTB forks to keep your steering sharp, but at the same time you will still be able to barspin with this fork on the Analog frame. Even though the fork is built to withstand serious abuse, the weight remains nice- we used all our knowledge from the dirt jumping fork line when building the Analog. You get triple butted legs, multi-butted CNC steer tube, a threaded steer tube with alloy top cap and our full heat treatment process that takes place after welding.
