    There is a very good point a couple of pages back about front end height. I'm running 1 5mm spacer, 6 degree stem, and low rise sixc bars. I've been working down the height lower and lower over the last few weeks. I found I wasnt get as much front end grip in corners as I'd hoped and put it down to not enough weight over the front end.

    Just wondering if anyone else has done any experimentation with front end height ?

    Cheers.

    What shock size (length and stroke) does the Nomad C need? Is it the same size for air and coil shocks? Thanks in advance.

    After a few successful rides of forcing myself to resist granny gear, I decided to remove the front shifter, front derailleur, Blackspire Stinger & bashguard and convert to 1x9 and run an MRP mini-G2. Not sure if it was a mental thing before (using granny just because it was available), the VPP or just plain new bike stoke but this bike climbs fairly well with a non-adjust 160 fork...whatever the case, the carbon Nomad has been pretty rad and has made riding that much more fun. Whenever I take the Lyrik back to Isotune for service I'll probably have the internal spacers removed and pedal the whole 170mm. 29.15lbs before the switch so I'm guessing she's in the 28ish lb range now.

    Yes, because he'll be totally jealous. It's like 3 people in the bike world think Santa Cruz couldn't have possibly have improved VPP1 with VPP2.

    BTW, been running 1x10 for quite some time now and since it's muddy here, I can't make it up everything I can ride up in the summer I need a 24 or 26 tooth granny to do it all.

    Lots of great pics of the carbon frames. Can anyone give some input on frame flex compared to an alum Nomad. I'm in the 230lb range and the Nomad Carbon or Alum is on my short list for next Spring.

    I'm the same range and had the Nomad AL for a while, then moved to the Carbon. The Carbon is extremely stiff - enough for a clyde to pay the extra coin for it. Especially the front triangle when you are doing berms that zig zag, etc. You'll really appreciate how the bike rides. Also, the RP23 with the stock tune works really well for me so you might not want to pay extra to upgrade the shock. JMO.

    I too am 235 lbs and have been riding a Mk1 nomad for last 5.5 years. Got a chance to short demo a Nomad C in the spring and It is immediately noticeably stiffer. A soon as i get the coin, I will be buildiing my last bike again from the Nomad C.

    WTF! All of you own Carbon Nomads yet there's only one review in the reviews section!! (And at least one in the wrong section.) Start writing and be a brother to those of us still on the fence. Please and thank you.

    For someone with only 9 posts and starting a reply with "WTF" I can't imagine anyone would want to help.

    Bit of an update on mine... think I've pretty much finished tweaking.. only issue is dodgy avid front brake that I may change or something newer/lighter soon.

    Bling parts all installed, sixc cranks, bbg ti bash, twenty6 flats.. hovers around 28.5lbs.

    That pic looks like it was taken in the UK..?

    Nice Nomad.

    The back plate is quite a good colour match mate.

    How do you find running the single ring?

    has it developed any creaking? does it get loose over time? happy with that setup so far?
