Beautiful build. Smart rear tire choice, it's going to out grip and climb anything bicycle.

Yeah, i ended up ditching the 3.5 trials tyre as it tipped the scale too much for me and went for a cheng shin 183a 3" mx tyre instead. The bike is now quite well balanced with the mx front tyre too. I recommend you try a front mx tyre... More weight yes, but more noticable grip and confidence and more balanced.

Hey
To bad all your pics are not visible anymore.

What headset did you use for the nyx?
I have a 1/8 fork and that pic of the headset on the nyx site makes me crazy.

So... Go to endless sphere and ask a NYX owner :p

Just waiting for a headset now for the rest of the build.

Next, to test the motor and controller and wire combos.

Hey Merlin, the headset is a cane creek, i cannot remember the exact size as NYX supplied it when i bought the frame as i was worried about not being able to purchase the correct size cups. It was expensive.... I remember that! To be honest, i am not sure exactly which part of the headset you mean. I will try and update some photos later today.

cane creek 40 zs series i believe.
i suspect it may not be easy to get another cheaper compatible type from memory.
