    Advice on Santa Cruz Nomad

    Long time lurker, first time poster. My probably 06 trek 4500 hardtail was just stolen. Not too pissed. Thing didn't even have disk brakes. Anyway, I'm in the market for a nice all mountain full suspension bike. I don't know too much about pricing/ component quality, but is this Santa Cruz Nomad-won't find better price a good deal? Looks like a new complete nomad is like 4-6 grand, and this doesn't look too thrashed. Also is medium a good size for me? I'm 5'10" 200lbs with a 30" inseam. Thanks for your help.

    I wouldnt say that it is a crazy good deal, but still a fair price for sure if everything works well. at 5'10" you will probably fit a medium, maybe a large.

    Yeah, looks like a really good deal. I would guess that either the owner doesn't know much about bikes or it is hot. Lol

    Look hard at all if the welds and make sure there are no areas for concerns/cracks. If it looks good, hop on it and take it for a spin. The Med could be a tiny bit small for you but you could manage. I'm 5'8 with a 31 inseam and ride a medium. They run a bit short in the top tube.
