    Very nice build indeed, mate!
    How is that 36 TALAS RLC working for you?
    I am thinking of putting it on my alu Nomad Mk2 to replace my coil '07 66 RV ETA (a.k.a boat anchor-3kg).
    Where did you got it from? Evans Cycles?
    Is it worth it, considering the price?

    Well, as for the brake levers setup, it's common for all motorbikers to set them up as such, throughout the world, not just UK. Does not confuse them otherwise.

    Thanks mate,

    You in the UK..?

    The 36 TALAS were purchased from Winstanley bikes. Got them for £800.

    They need a good ride for me to comment on them but being able to drop them to 120mm is a bonus. Tried them on a nature walk near to where I live and the 120mm rides quite well. Could probable ride cross country at this setting.

    Nice bike! I had the same concern with the Kashima coating so I wrote Fox and this is what they had to say:

    Hello,

    According to your serial number, your fork does have Kashima stanchions. The very first forks to receive the Kashima coating did have a slightly brighter gold finish due to a slight difference in electric charging during the coating process. All forks with the Kashima coating since will have the same finish as your fork.

    Thanks,

    Subject: 2011 36 Talas FIT RLC - Kashima?

    Hi, I jus got my new 2011 36 TALAS 160 FIT RLC from my LBS but I'm not sure if it has the Kashima coating. The stanchions look goldish but not as golden as the pictures on your website. Maybe you can confirm this with the serial number:

    Under the crown: 324771-0010
    On the steerer: 051110

    Thanks,

    Nice one.
    I'm considering something close : 36 van RC2, flow rim on hope hubs...
    Yours is a Large ?
    Can you detail a bit the build : brakes, hubs, ...
    And what's the total weight ?

    NICE looking bike. I like it. The Kashima is pretty bright compared to the shock.

    Sick Nomad, just bought a 2010 aluminum Nomad myself. I have a gravity dropper & am having problems where the cable goes into the housing. I see that your's is metal with a curve in it. How did you do that, & what is it made from?

    cheers. Yeh, i had same issues with cable routing. I got an old v brake noodle and cut it in half. Works pretty well doesnt it. Bit of a pain with adjusting the cable clamps inside the GD lever, you need the hex key that came with the GD and id lost it.

    Mine is black and after 3 weeks of heavy thrashing it had some chips and scratches on the non-drive side of the chainstays and a big one near the BB (where the chainstays pivot). I just covered the chips and scratches with black automotive enamel paint or nail polish, so far so good...

    Thanks for the links. I'm interested in a helmet / bar cam and think it is something that recommendations are better than just buying one. The footage looks quite good on the helmet.

    Was it expensive?

    spring question

    I recently bought a nomad c and I have the rc4 on it , what rate springs are you guys running and your rider weights ?? I have a 400 lb spring and it seems not be getting the sag , it is not even close to where it should be , it seems way to stiff.
    thanks scab

    185 ready to ride. The RC4's don't need as much spring as the DHX 5.0 need.

    is that an AgleSet I see?

    a 170 will slacken out the Nomad quite a bit - are you also running an offset on the AngleSet?

    what top cup are you running now? .5, 1 or 1.5?

    slacken it if you're going to do more climbing? did you mean slacken it if you're going to do more DESCENDING?
