    No problem.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Invest a litle bit of time, check Santacruz forum, there's more thread than you need on TRc and Nomad. Same to Yeti for 575. Decide what type of riding suit yours and if any of bikes you see match that.
    All three is great bikes - climbing and descending- but no one can tell you if one is better for your riding style

    11' 575 vs Blur trc vs Nomadc

    All 3 seem to be different bikes. I've had a 575 and it was a great all around bike but not well suited to my Clydesdale status. I currently have an Asr 7. The TRc has more progressive geometry including a lower bottom bracket-probably better for smooth single track than say the Nomad.

    New 575? Isn't the 575 a pretty old model/design, albeit a good one, that's being updated with new standards as the years go by?

    BTW, a search will provide you with ample opinions about that exact subject

    I would add the Yeti asr-5 to your list if you're looking at the Blur trc. Competitivecyclist has a 26lb x0/x9 on sale for $2799, about the price of a trc frame.

    i'm sure he means the "new" style, with the hydroformed seat tube and asr5/7 style symmetrical chainstays.
