    It's a 400lb fox spring.

    Goes sweet, especially with new push link.

    Question for carbon owners who have chipped any paint off! I am considering a used frame that has a chip missing on the rear swingarm in front of the lower link. Seller said it was checked out and cleared by SC as only paint missing! Is this a gel coat? Any repair suggestions? I have done a search with no good results.
    I've talked to the portuguese SC dealer and They say is possible to make cosmetic repairs with some special resin. Mine has some paint problems on that área all related to high apeed rock contact.

    I wouldn't worry about those paint chips on the C nomad unless it was deep into the carbon. The paint chips pretty easy so I probably wouldn't even bother reparing it.

    I would do it just to keep it looking nice! I wonder if there is a way to recoat them, 5 years from now when bikes are looking a mess. Maybe sending it back to SC!

    Thinking about getting my NomadC custom painted, maybe the paint would hold up better? Paint chips are one thing but these chips are pits that go right down to the carbon, anyone else notice the same issue?

    If you don't ride in a very rocky area, I doubt you'll have many issues with the paint. I've had the Nomadc in white first and had almost zero chips and my newer black one has nothing. We have rocks, but they aren't flying up everywhere or anything like that.

    Then that wouldn't be the local bike shop anymore, would it?

    Not trying to debate the issue, but some folks have no choice to buy online. Me? I bought my bike at the shop down the road.

    to support what 007 is saying. it may just be the fact that your local bike shops are a bit of dill holes ndthe only bike shops you like are not santa cruz dealers. that is the exact reason i bought mine online from speed goat. good people that are a good dealer to boot!

    and trust me when i say you only need to support local bike shop to a certain extent, i use to work at a few of my local bike shops throughout the years

    31.9lb with my heavy tires. Pedals nicely considering. Can keep up with the boys on the up and leave them for dead on the down.

    Is setup tubeless.

    *sweeps dust off the thread*

    Pretty stale here so I've decided to post a picture about the new stuff on my NomadC. The additions are the E13 Turbocharger bash guard and a E13 Heim 2RS.

    Oh and some mud. Cheers!

    Been a while since I've posted pics of my beast so here are a couple (albeit crappy camera phone) pics. Just can't get enough of this bike.

    The B-line was the existing trail, and someone just built a few new berms and jumps. I <3 trail gnomes.

    Hey people.

    I've been running a Straightline Silent Guide w 32T guide ring on my Nomad C and have been seriously disappointed with the amount of noise that occurs from chain slap when riding. Before the Straightline I ran an LG1 which has seen better days.

    I've got the stays pretty well protected and put some sticky back Velcro on the drive side upright and most recently took another link out of the chain. That has stuffed up my bottom end shifting no end (running short cage X9 on a 32T rear cassette). New SRAM proto mech on Pinkbike looks promising but that's another story altogether.

    SC recommend the Mini G which is great but I have some questions.

    Does the Lopes SL come with the same back plate option for a 'medium angle' that the Mini G comes in? Can the Mini G be run without the skid plate?

    Aside from the MRP options does anyone have any experience with the various types of guides you can run on the frame and whats the best solution? I'm leaning towards the Mini G.

    Personally the only thing worse than a flexy bike is a noisy bike.

    Thanks and happy trails.

    Where are you getting chain slap?

    I'm running a Silent Guide on mine, 11-36 cassette, with a mid cage XTR mech & my bike is disturbingly quiet, to the extent i'm not used to it, and keep thinking i've lost the chain.

    Judging by how the SG sits, I would assume the noise comes from the metal plate by the lower slider. I have mine covered in self amalgamating tape there to quieten it down. Otherwise looking at the frame, you shouldn't really get any chainslap anywhere.

    I may be way off here, but try changing to a medium cage.

    I have a Straitline SG with a 33 T front cog and with a medium cage rear d XT, and I have absolutely no noise.

    I had some chain slap on my NomadC and I partly solved it shortening the chain, similar to what Yippee is saying but cheaper so you can give it a try before replacing the RD

    I think Meta is doing something wrong because I had zero noise with a silent guide. My LG1+ idler is louder than a silent guide.

    One year now, been running the Straitline Silent Guide with an E-13 32T ring and med Saint rear der, no noise whatsoever on my alu Nomad Mk2.
    Uninstall and re-install it.
