    i, for one, would love to have his all-white Nomadc, despite it being the trendy color scheme

    No, it isn't much different. Fortunately that's not the color scheme I went with.

    Still looks nice, no denying that. I would have run 10-speed X.0 as well, but it wasn't available when I was building my baby.

    Good for you. I never said it wasn't nice. I simply said that it follows a rather popular trend. In fact our Santa Cruz Rep has a very similar build on his Nomad C.

    The kit will be online in a day or so.

    So sick. The hydraulic actuation is super slick and 5" drop is insane.

    Nope,Hadley's with the Ti cassette body. Hub of choice by a mile for me.

    Well Said

    I'm not quite sure "trendy" is the right word choice when there are only two options to start with....

    I'm also glad no one does this black on black trend on their cars & trucks..... Oh wait, who here lives in California?

    I've thought about it many times... just haven't bucked up and bought one. Maybe I should sell all my shocks that I don't use and get one? I have heard fantastic things about it on the Nomad1.

    OTOH, it seems odd to get a carbon bike and put a big heavy shock on it. I know there are other reasons to do so, but it still seems odd to me. I will probably end up with one eventually.

    Hate to say it, but this looks like the first NomadC in the thread that is actually used and even remotely set up properly. Can someone explain to me the need for the elevated handlebar height and need for so many steering tube spacers? And can anyone actually cut their own hydro lines? I am sorry, but it had to be said.

    I've been cutting my brake hose for years, it's really not that hard. All u need is new ferrules, a sharp tubing cutter and the patience to re-bleed the system.

    Is that a PUSH'd Monarch? If so does this mean you're offering it as a service now?

    I love it so far! I climb everything around here in the 140mm setting and it seems to climb very well! Especially with the 36 t XX in the back And the 180mm is so nice, I haven't felt any noticible steering "flop" and it handles rather quickly for having 7" of travel!

    I'll have a Northstar ride report here shortly!

    I believe it is Cambria Bike Outfitter that has some T-Shirts on sale that say " Shut Up And Ride" on the back.....

    You should look into purchasing one of these. I am sorry, but it had to be said.

    Mine posted back here has a 5mm spacer, 0 deg stem(70mm) low rise bars(20mm / 740mm, fork is 1 1/18 on an internal headset so only 4mm stack height in the bottom race. Thats about as low as you can go, I'd say its set up pretty well OK! And it does get used.

    I want to see some of these bikes on a scale

    I just finished building my bike up and the weight is 29.6 lbs. on a force feed back scale. I'm happy with the weight but its not as light as some others posted. My only real let down weight wise is with the wheels 1960 grams . Look at my build and see if you guys can see where I might be able to lose some weight. Keep in mind I'm happy with the weight and this was a true All mountain build. I'll post pic's later.

    My bike came with a nice sized chip in the paint on the head tube. The paint seams to chip easy. When I installed the rear brake mount it chip when I bolted it down.

    That is a really nice build!
    In my opinion the only place you will save significant weight is if you have a different wheelset built up. My bike would weigh the same or more than yours if I did not have the edge wheels on it - they are worth a full 16 + oz of weight savings from the weight you said your wheel set weighed.

    Personally I think it should have come like this. Can't beat that clear finish on unidirectional carbon.

    I was refunded $350 back for the damage. I felt good about that. My wheel set is the only let down. The weight was a little more then i expected and both hubs were loose before ever riding it. I will post pic's tonight on my scale. I challenge everyone thats listed there bike with a weight to post pick to back it up.

    You know it's not a 180 because the lowers don't go below the axle.

    Yeah I'm glad I have the 2010 rc2. I just can't imagine why fox is making a $1000+ fork with rlc. Eeewwwwwwww. Maybe mark weir does have an rc2?

    Nomad "C", big trailbike!

    Here's some "just built" pics of my big trailbike Nomad "C" medium.....weighs in @ 27.1Lbs as you see it. With a super low and light top cup'd hybrid Cane Ck headset, along 1x9 gears and some 2.25 Exception series Maxxis turned tubeless gets it that light.

    With a couple changes in pedals and lower bars it should be high 26's.

    Nice looking bike Gripo. I'm back on the DHX-Air on mine. The RP23 (to me) wasn't really working out. The 23 seems to work real well on my Firebird though so I swapped the shocks and all is well again on the Nomad. I still have my RC4 shock as well for heavier duty stuff.

    Very nice Grippo. I'm in oz to and preordered mine in march and still no word on when it will be here. Are you going to put a chainguide on or leave it like it was on your bltc?

    gticlay - the rp23 may need a revalve as I'm only 75Kg and I'm finding I need to run 210psi to get near the 20mm of sag - 15mm would be better but that's a whole lot of pressure. I only run 135psi on my LTc?

    terrible1- I will post up a spec list when I take some prettier photos

    Q-dog - this is a medium and was a 8 week wait, i won't run a guide as the Widgit hasn't let me down yet.

    gticlay - the rp23 may need a revalve as I'm only 75Kg and I'm finding I need to run 210psi to get near the 20mm of sag - 15mm would be better but that's a whole lot of pressure. I only run 135psi on my LTc?

    terrible1- I will post up a spec list when I take some prettier photos

    Q-dog - this is a medium and was a 8 week wait, i won't run a guide as the Widgit hasn't let me down yet.
    Yeah, that's real weird. 165lbs and you should be close to that in psi as well. I think I had 230 psi (about body weight) in there when I rode it on my NomadC and it sagged properly.

    With a couple changes in pedals and lower bars it should be high 26's.

    What's the gearing on that thing?
