    evolution

    a bit of progression over the past couple of years.
    these bikes gave up their lives in search of the 'mean green'
    for some reason it wont let me upload a jpeg of the alpine which was after the remedy.

    your mojo was badass. not sure if this is an upgrade. bos and ccdb would likely be near the top of everyone's want list.

    true, ore of a sideways movement and i do miss the mojo hd. It was more lively and a better all day bike than the nomad but ive now sold my dh bikes and fancied a nomad to cover all bases. plus i just fancied a refresh.
    the nomad is in early stages at the mo, it may get a push link and coil soon.

    i just wonder if you could elaborate what the nomad does better/differently than the mojo? there seems to be quite a bit of overlap in their capabilities.

    I have owned both as well and to me the HD had a slight nod climbing but the Nomad (mine was carbon with Push link/Ti-RC4) just killed the HD everywhere else! Fast flowy singletrack, jumping, and DH! Im riding a Yeti ASR-7 now and surprisingly it is more fun to ride than both!!!

    @ waldo1, im building a carbon Remedy for a lighter XC/AM bike (keeping the Yeti for the more FR/DH duties)...I have never been on a Remedy, this should be about 26lbs...How did you like yours?

    The mojo has a shorter rear end and importantly, with dw link it sits higher in it's travel. The bos deville 170 were about 400gs lighter than the 55rc3 evo ti. I was also running 35mm stem with high rise renthals. All this made it very snappy,easy to lift the front, with quick direction changes.
    The vpp sits quite deep into the travel has a longer rear and about 35mm longer wb. I'm running a- 2deg zero stack headset too. This thing is soo stable at high speed, but surprisingly, was perfect around a VERY tight, twisty dh the other day. The mojo climbed better but not by a huge amount.

    The remedy was really good, bit fragile, but is still going strong in the hands of my mate and he has the finesse of an elephant. I bought a size too small for me so sold it.
    The mojo has a half inch longer seat tube than the nomad and with the dw sitting higher, I found the saddle was in the way a bit on the downs.
    Ultimately, I just fancied a change.

    Id like more time to let the 55 bed in, get used to it then form an opinion.
    So far the 55 is very controlled, smooths out everything and tracks brilliantly. It sits into it's travel nicely when climbing which helps keep the front down.
    The deville is an amazing fork with outstanding damping and control. Also it weighs less than nats pube and is very reliable.
    The annoying thing with the 55 is that the low and high speed compression are both adjusted by one dial with an air loaded cartridge. I've emptied this of air ATM...... so smooth.

    Nice Nomad. Lower wider bars & remove some spacers to lower the front end.

    In fact, I am changing to Renthal high rise and stem as I am keeping it high...trying some configuration...

    My bar is 740mm now and I think any wider I will have problems in the woods...

    I'm at 800 and more often than not clip trees. It's like dropping an anchor at mach 3.
    would like more rise though, but theres only one option with Easton 35.
    still keeping them though.
