    I think my bike with a 170mm fork and a full height headset is a little unbalanced. Your bike with a low stack and the same ATC as a 180 fork will only be a little slacker than mine, but will travel deeper. I really don't know how it'll ride, but it should be plush

    Hello guys,

    Has anyone experience mounting a Gamut P30 dual chain guide on a nomad ?
    Does it need adjustement of some sort or is it straight out of the box to the bike ??

    This is possibly the most beautiful Nomad C i've seen to date. Anyone have any idea what size frame this is as well?

    Would you or anyone happen to know if this is a S or M size frame? Looks like a small but its hard to tell with these 'quality' photos.

    No, sorry. Looks pretty darn small though.

    Large. It will be XTR and Haven CF wheelset and Haven stem, bars and post-projected weight to be 25lbs. Bikers Edge in SLC UT. will be doing the honors. Zack is the man-very knowledgable and fair. I live in LA so that counts for a lot.

    Finally! I ordered my frame and fork yesterday (Black Large DHX Air w/36 Talas160 taper Kashima). Now the wait begins. Any insight on how long I must wait.

    Just make sure it's got "real" tires. At least Weirwolf 2.3 front and back or a set of Fat Alberts.

    A 6" travel bike without a dropper post (or even a seat quick release) not to mention those XC tires tells me that's just a long travel XC bike. Kind of a waste of that frame but to each his own.

    Thats exactly what I thought. Why buy that frame if you wanted to be a weight weenie. Should of got a Scott frame as they are lighter. I have the same bike but mine is built up for freeride, drops etc with slack angles.

    You should put some more weigth on the dropper post and coil shoch. The weight can be lower in the stem is to long for this bike

    Very nice wheels but these tires I use in the Ellsworth Epiphany, not in SC Nomad C, where I prefer Max HR or Conti RQ

    Rest is great. Nice rides

    To improve mine to the dream bike category, would like some reviews about:
    - The whells Easton carbon in agrassive riding. Not freeride, but some lower drops
    - waitings for news about fork Bos Deville

    That is sick. Green with envy. Please tell us how those wheels ride. Better yet, find out what it takes to break them, get a brand new pair from the no questions asked warranty and then tell us. I really want to buy a pair and put king hubs on them if they are tuff as they are light.

    Just ordered my frame, shock and fork. Yippee!!

    But can't decide on a build kit. I really like the X0 1x10 kit from Santa Cruz but it is about $500 out of my budget, and pushing the versatility bracket.

    Can anyone recommend a build/products that I should consider that wouldn't push the envelope of my budget? Bearing in mind I can only offered a little less than the cost of the X0 kit and slightly more than the SPX AM kit.

    Cheers.

    Get as much fork and shock as you can afford (and want). The rest is way less important, IMO.

    That's taken care off and was the 'somewhat' easy part. Went with the DHX Air and Talas 160 with Kashima. Now for the rest.... Too many options.

    1st ride today-sweet! This is super smoothe and a lot of fun. I like the tires but do see that a dropper post would be in order. I am 6'1" and 180 lbs-any pointers on the suspension set up would be much appreciated.

    Looks like you have a high clamp FD. Is that thing hitting the wishbone?

    Here's one from the Tallboy thread that should fit the Nomad as well. They said they ship world wide. I haven't needed anything on my bike (yet!).

    I'm normally pretty quiet on forums, but this thread has provided so much inspiration and info for my build, i thought i would share mine. All it is missing is an orange seat collar which i'll be getting soon

    Weighs 27.4 pounds at the moment with tubes.

    My understanding when talking to them in regards to the FIT cartridge is there really isn't much they can do to tune the forks other than using lighter weight oil in the rebuild.

    Do you know what they did and have you noticed a difference?

    Looks great. How are you liking the wheels? Why are you running tubes in them though? I thought they were tubless rims.

    That's true. Unfortunately I wasn't really aware of that, until after I sent it in. So I guess only the shock was pushed and the fork was maintained. I believe the oil was changed to their preferred viscocity, seals etc... nothing I couldn't have done.

    Looking forward to riding it to see how the shock feels. My first ride out after the maintenance, I ended up in the ER after 4 miles. I'll have to hold off on that report.

    I was wondering are any of these bikes being used to free ride? They look like long legged XC bikes to me. I guess I am curious as to how much punishment these bikes can really take.
    Your big wheels are so awesome!

    Took mine up to Whistler (with 2.5 tires) and rode it all over the Garbanzo area. I realize that's not freeriding but it was great with nary a creak afterward. I'd say with the 160 travel fork I had on there at the time it was pushing my limits on the bike to ride it on Dirt Merchant. I'm sure some of you more skilled riders would be fine on that trail with a Nomad, but it was definately my max there with the 'mad.
