    Oh yes! new frame!

    Here is my new Nomad! The frame is a small, anno slate. I have been waiting for it for a long time.

    I'll be swapping parts over from my Heckler, I would have liked to build it with all new parts but it's not in the budget. It's not that bad though since I have pretty nice stuff on the Heckler.

    Thanks to Mojo Wheels for taking great care of me as always! Lisa is the best!

    I don't think that frame will suit CO trails at all.........

    Sweet ride! I know the nomads are a love em' or hate em' thing and well, I love em'!
    What will be your build spec that is comming over from your Heckler?
    It's not a good ride if you don't scare yourself at least once.

    Oh yeah...It's peanut buttah jelly time! Peanut buttah jelly time! Peanut buttah jelly with a baseball bat!!

    Yeah, I was going back and forth on teh coil myself and just went with the air in the end hopefully it'll work great and not have any problems... I've never had a bike with an air shock. It'll be nice not having to swap springs and whatnot.

    Well as long as I'm showing off new toys... my new full face came in yesterday! Check it out... it is sweet!

    I'm all about protecting myself this year

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Hopefully I'll be up there. Think I can get away with registering without my parents there to sign the waivers?

    Also, I haven't the slightest idea how to get there, I know there used to be directions on their site but I can't find them anymore...

    Uhhh... I think you can find it

    From the springs head west on 24 all the way to 285 then go south a couple of miles and your there.

    Should be about 100 miles and about a 2 hour drive

    I have not used it yet so I'm not really sure but it looks cool! It seems to fit well, the front part of the full face sit's right in front of my mouth... kinda weird but it's not a fit issue, it's just not what I'm used to. I think breathing hard might be an issue... but I'll have to see.

    I went by the sizing chart on the 661 webpage and like I said it fit's well.

    Nice ride - that looks like a blast. Watch that helmet - I'm starting to believe that there is a direct relationship between the bling factor of a helmet and the force gravity exerts on it.
    Now with more vitriol!

    Will it be obvious where the race is from the highway?

    Yes (only becuase the race this weekend though), you have to park right off of the highway and then take the shuttle or ride to the MTX course. You are going to see a bunch of cars/people/bikes etc at the parking area.

    Just that a small seems... small. If you're comfortable with it that's all that matters.

    Yeah... I could go either way but my medium Heckler is 22.5 and the medium Nomad is 22.8 which felt a little long. The 21.9 S Nomad TT seemed like the way to go.

    When I started to build it up the first thing I looked for was to see if the fork was going to hit the downtube and it does... So i just ordered and new crown race from Ventana that should fix it. I have heard of other small SC bikes having this issue.

    Hey Brent, are you still getting rid of the Heckler frame?

    Yes and it now has a brand new front triangle, new bearings and a new dropout. The frame is brand new except the rear and the 5th Element. $500.00 and it's yours.

    My buddy just got his together and we were in Fruita for the virgin rides this weekend. He loves it. I took it for a few spins and the DHX air feels real nice. I've been thinking of replacing my Heckler with one of those now. Great bike for sure. You'll love it. It climbs like a billy goat too!
