    Slash or Nomad

    I am thinking about replacing my 08 remedy with a new bike. I want to use this bike for more all mountain mini downhill. I have a blur ltc lightly build up for trail riding.
    My main objectives is for better performance going downhill. I have narrow it down to either a slash or nomad c.
    Any input is appreciated.

    Nomad. It's simply a better bike for what you seem to want. It feels super strong going down, but it pedals up far better than a slash.

    Nomad... Unless you want to have a crack at Tallboy LTc. You could then sell your Blur LTc, have more money to put into one bike that does it all...

    Unless you're thinking bike park only bike with 180mm up front.

    Just a thought from a previous owner of a Nomad to a Tallboy LTc

    The orientation wasn't so clear for installation, but after that, it's been excellent. Great customer service too.

    Slash or Nomad

    The One is a better choice but between the 2 you mentioned, nomad for sure. I would really like to see a geometry up date on the nomad though.
