    My "AM" Nomad, AKA "The Pleasure Craft"

    After years of being a hardtail riding weight weenie I took the blue pill and went to the bouncy side. I love this thing.

    All mountain? Sure, whatever that means. All the new skool catagories confuse me.

    Its a mountain bike and I ride it all over the mountain so I guess that counts!

    * Santa Cruz Nomad, Medium, Polished, DHXAir
    * Marzo 66SL
    * Avid Juicy Carbons (185 ft, 160 r)
    * Shimano XT cranks
    * Shimano XT ft der.
    * SRAM XO rear der.
    * SRAM XO triggers
    * SRAM hollowpin chain
    * Shimano old 959 pedals
    * Thompson X4 stem, 70mm
    * RaceFace Next Carbon riser
    * Thompson Masterpiece post
    * Flite Ti
    * XT integrated BB
    * XT cassette
    * CK headset
    * Saris generics grips (getting some Ourys whenever I get around to it)
    * Nokian NBX 2.3 front and rear
    * Velocity
    * Marzo 20mm front hub
    * CK ISO rear hub
    * 29.94lbs. NO LIE!

    A little bit o' Cake

    Ok, this one is definitely on the light end of the AM spectrum... but I've got too many hills to deal with locally not to have a good climber. I went with a jack of all trades (5" travel heavy XC / light AM) that could do respectably in an all mountain / trail role but still cut and run / climb like the blazes when required. It is still too new to have a lot of upgrades (I'll wear things out then replace, but some of my thoughts are included):

    * Frame Size & Color: 06 Cake 2DLX, 19" frame, blue
    * Fork: Float Fox 130R
    * Shock: Manitou Swinger 3-way
    * Brakes: Hayes HFX 9, 6" rotors (likely going to 8" front)
    * Cranks: Bontrager stamped Truvativ Fire X
    * Front Derailleur: Shimano LX
    * Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT
    * Pedals: Shimano M520
    * Stem: Bontrager Race OS
    * Handlebar: Bontrager Select OS
    * Seatpost: Bontrager Select (will likely go to Thompson in future)
    * Saddle:Bontrager Select (likely WTB in not so distant future)
    * Bottom Bracket: Truvative GXP External
    * Cassette: SRAM PG970
    * Headset: Aheadset / Crane Creek
    * Grips: Bontrager Lock-on (I don't care much as long as my gloves stick to 'em)
    * Front Tire: Bontrager ACX (likely going Panaracers for local conditions)
    * Front Rim: Bontrager (will change, thinking Mavics)
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Bontrager (will change, thinking Hope)
    * Rear Tire: Bontrager ACX (likely going Panaracers for local conditions)
    * Rear Rim: Bontrager (will change, thinking Mavics)
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: Bontrager (will , thinking Hope)
    * Weight: 33lbs as shown, just under 31lbs without the night riding light + battery

    The Spring on the 5th Element is titanium (smooth) -.4 lb.
    I am changing to Specialized Pro 2.3 tires soon which will add about
    .4 lbs to the bike but should yeild a greater contact patch and
    increased cornering traction with the Stan's Tubless kit.

    My AM rig..

    I won't bore you with the specs; kinda in the middle of up grading parts, but have changed stem, shocky spring and wanting to upgrade hubs, forks and maybe brakes and discs. Oh, and new s-type rims on the way.

    I'll Play

    You guys have a serious lack of Big Wheeled rigs here so I’ll throw mine up.

    Ventana “El Capitan” (29er for those of you that arnt familiar)
    Maverick DUC converted to 29er use
    Industry Nine wheels built with Salsa 29 mm disc rims
    XT/XTR drivetrain
    Syntace 16 deg 27” bars
    Avid BB7 160/180
    King Thomson etc…
    She rolls about 29lbs and can take just about anything the southern Appalachians can throw at her. From long days in Pisgah to 100 mile races this thing gets me all over a bunch of mountains.
