from the Nicolai website:
If you have never been on a BMX race bike you really should try it. In terms of acceleration and quickness there is nothing that compares. When we began to develop a BMX race bike in 2005, we didnâ€™t even want to attempt to build something economical or low-tech. We just wanted the best BMX build - that means a frame with a superb stiffness to weight ratio and a superior geometry designed for victories. In the development of the Ro20 BMX we were proactively supported by the Swiss BMX champions Roger Rinderknecht and Yvan Lapraz. The Ro20 was only built for one purpose: Victory. In 2007, Yvan Lapraz became BMX world champion on a production Nicolai Ro20.
