NS Bikes Analog 2011

New and slightly revamped version of the NS Bikes Analog frameset for 2011:

"Based on a customer feedback the revamped frame received a couple of new features – mainly revised geometry and an integrated seat clamp. The 2011 version also has slightly longer dropouts with extra machining. The bottom bracket has been raised and the top tube lowered.

The NS Analog fork has also been modified for 2011. It now comes with more tasty and classic looking blades, an improved dropout interface and some more weight saving machining on the steer tube. The drop-outs are now 5mm thick and the fork is slightly lighter but just as strong as the previous model."

Having test ridden the original Analog I can say it is a super solid bike and the changes made on it sound like pretty nice tweaks. However, the components of the 2010 complete were mostly pretty shitty so let's hope the new one eventually comes with bit better parts on it.
