    Any guys riding on a sea bright blue color?

    I'll be getting a nomad soon and can't decide what color to go with. I'm considering the sea bright blue but not sure if it's too girly. Any of you guys riding a SC with this color?

    Also, should I go with the rp32 or DHX air shock on the Nomad? I do mainly hard trail riding, steep ups and steep downs, and have heard some bad things about the DHX even though it seems to be more popular on the Nomad. Thanks

    When I bought mine the '10 frames were rolling out and were way more expensive(Saebright was new in the '10 model year) than the white '09 that I bought. And I ordered it with a Monarch because I couldn't afford to upgrade to the RP23 and didn't want the DHX. It shipped with a DHX Air because they were out of Monarchs. Lucky me I guess. It's been okay. To make a short story even longer, I wanted Seabright with an RP23. I say go for it.

    I think that the Raw is the best looking AL frame, but if I had to pick a color, I'd go for the blue. There are a few pics of built bikes in the nomad and blur threads. They look great.

    Agreed, I love the blue. I am in the market for an AM rig and blue it will be. I have a Driver 8that is yellow, I like it, but it's not as good as the blue. Second choice would be the green.

    I wish they would offer the Nomad or Blur in the Orange that the TB comes in . . . . that's a sweet color. Though its not like I'm in the market for a bike now anyway, so what do I care
