    Very nice!
    I'm thinking the 07 AL1 SL or the 06 Z1 Light ETA. Anyone else tried those?

    I had the 06 'not very' Light ETA on a Nomad - great forks but the axle to crown height was way too much...



    When I used the ETA you went to far forward and when you took it off it felt ridiculous !

    Sorry Guys, this is not an Elsworth but I'll have one very soon...Anyway, this is a very good example of white fork on black that I kinda like it...

    When trails gets tougher, Just stand up and deliver.

    Hey Justa, don't mean to kick sand in your eyes, but it seems like you might have underestimated the capabilities of that fork on the Nomad... it's an extreme freeride fork with climbing capabilities.

    Yes, when you lock down the ETA you can get a steep head angle, and this is awesome when you've got those steady 15mile climbs with the ocassional 20% grades and tight swithcbacks.
    Obviously, once you reach the top and lock out the ETA, you can unleash the freeride monster in you and the bike.
    I've got that same 66L w/ETA on my DareXC and I couldn't be happier.
    Who knows, maybe it has something to do with my size. I'm 6'4" and 170lbs.
    That Nomad is beautiful.

    Well, my wife's angles are so tight, I need to compensate with a slack ride.

    Wow, that's a pretty penny...
    The only thing I'd change is the gripshifters, my style is too aggressive an I would find myself inadvertently shifting with that set up. A set of XO rapid fire would be über sickness.

    Nice job, that bike is en fuego !

    hmmm....some downhillers use grip shifters. they dont shift by themselves nowadays with the higher quality ones. I hate trigger shifters.

    thanks. i love the bike....first ride today. what makes me feel the best is that i paid less for it than some off the shelf Specialized FSR Stumpjumper Pro which is pretty generic.

    cheers

    Thats funny. I have used grip shifters on several bikes for a number of years, including my new Epi, for the same reason you don't use them. Too much problem bashing into the rapid-misfire shifters. I wouldn't consider those bulky and overly complex rapid fire pods.
    But then your style of riding is VERY different than mine... To each his own.

    Black forks on black and blue...No white for me....but thats more luck of the draw than anything.

    I do have white forks on my BRIGHT red Klein pulse hardtail. Now there is a combination that merits mixed reviews.

    Yeah, Gripshifters have IMO largly been considered the choice for more aggro riding in the past. Though triggers are great and are just what most people use these day's.
