    As in, chainstay length, headtube angle, top tube length, etc...

    Isn't that "geometry" ?

    There is a travel reducer in there. So it's probably limited to more like 140mm ?

    I ride w/ 30mm of sag. But to answer your question, the ride is sweet. Even n technical uphills.

    I have no idea if it's all-mountain or not, but it is YABY (yet another black Yelli).

    I will be setting it up as a 1x9 in the next couple weeks. Also adding a Gravity Dropper turbo.

    Yes, that's geometry. your statement surprised me since the p'dox has short stays and a steep HTU (slackish for 29er standards but still pretty steep in the grand scheme of things) whereas the Nomad as loooong stays and a slackish HTA...

    Actually, the geometry is pretty similar between the two bikes.

    With a 5" fork and a 2.35" tire the Paradox head tube angle is 69°
    My Nomad's is 68°

    The chainstay on the Paradox is 16.9"
    The Nomad's is 17.4" (ok, you got me there, longer but not much)

    They both have a 24" top tube.

    most nomads are around 67° HTA IIRC...but whatever, both bikes should be a blast to ride, that's what counts! Enjoy them both.

    Another Yelli here.
    This one's a replacement for my Paradox.
    Just waiting for the Rev 140 fork to finish it off.

    ^ That looks awesome. Have you given some though to the Reba RLT Ti 140mm? Basically the same fork, costs much less.

    BTW, how would you compare the two?

    The site i've been looking at the Rev on has it up for not much more money than the Reba and it's listed as white. Can't find a 140 Reba in white or i'd be tempted to get that and not wait.

    There's not a massive amount of difference between the Paradox and the Yelli TBH. I wanted to go with a tapered headtube though and the Yelli came up second hand at the right price.

    Found these sweet Banshee Paradox from Asia while looking for some pics. Definitely great taste in spec and color.

    Not really designed as an AM, but fun with the 120mm Marz and DH bars.
