    Updated my formerly white fork 2011 Float! New uppers, a black 2k paint and new decals! Best upgrade is the Mobil1 synthetic oil in the air chamber side! Fox green used in the damper side. I pulled maybe 10ml out of the damper side??? The fork is super subtle now, the small bump is amazing and im now using full travel![IMG]blk1.jpg[/IMG][IMG]blk2.jpg[/IMG]

    Maybe... In fact Santa Cruz has already showed the new 12x142 standard on this blur ltc at Sea Otter, so I expected the same for the Big bikes of the brand...

    Seeing the new german bikes (liteville, alutech fanes and many more) I think Santa should revised the geos from the Nomad (More Head Angle 66š with 160mm fork) and Increase the seat angle to 73-74š...

    If SC does this changes, it won't be a Nomad anymore.
    The original specifications in geometry makes this bike so special and different from others in the same category.

    I was convinced you go for the evil......the importance of reach and stack, you know what I mean Bro!
    Licensed to confuse...

    and the nomad doesnt need a thru axle.
    the rear is as stiff and often stiffer than other bikes with a thru axle rear end.
    Sokrates is dead, Galilei is dead, Newton is dead, Einstein is dead, Pantani is dead and i am feeling sick too.

    For those of you who have gone from a Nomad2 to a Nomadc, is there any difference in the reach between same sizes? The specs on the SC sites are identical but I have heard that the reach is a tad longer on the Nomadc.

    Still debating on colour but green is in front at the moment. Here's some PS of what it will look like.

    I didn't notice too much difference in reach. Are you seriously thinking about the switch?

    I love my blue on black Nomad C.

    But after seeing the green carbon frame in shop if I had it to do again I'd probably go with the green frame.

    Do it The NomadC rides a fair bit nicer than the Nomad A I had, granted it was a first generation.

    Too bad I won't be up in Blue any time soon, otherwise you could take mine for a longish test ride.

    Few updates to the beast

    Its been awhile since I last posted my love, on page 13 I got a decent camera since then also. Most noticably new addition is the 2012 RC4 coil shock with enduro needle bearings. I have a 400 lb spring on but would like to try a 350 lb spring if anyone has one laying around that I can buy? Coming from a DHX air its definately a different feel and it seems to carry more speed and make the bike come alive and even pedals better, granted it is set up stiffer right now.

    Talas fork has been working great but I find myself hardly using the talas feature to justify and I am looking at getting a 2011+ fox 36 180 RC2 coil. If anyone has one that wants to trade for my talas?

    Reverb post died for the 3rd time and a bleed didn't help it ths time, rock shok was nice enough to send me a brand new one. Mine was the first version, while it was nice the revised post is even nicer, the black collar instead of chrome, revised stronger hose fittings and even noticed less micro side to side play right off the bat.

    Put a XX cassette on in place of an XT and even got a pewter chris king lockring to match the hubs Most other things ive done are just for personal asthetics maybe minor or negligable performance upgrades that include swapped rear quick release for Chris king fun bolts, Tune fixed seat collar, Enduro zero ceramic derailleur pulleys, formula carbon brake levers, Ti bolts everywhere, stem, rotors, brake mount, seat collar, shifters, derailleurs, also trying out aluminum pedal pins... instead of the steel.

    Once I dial in the spring weight I would like to get a ti coil, and things to come are coil fork possibly,black turbine chainrings, I need a new chain one of the links is bent on 10 speed XTR was thinking of a KMC X10SL DLC black chain, want to try a shorter stem...., want to cut steerer but holding off for now, push link want to try, oh and gonna get a black chris king ceramic bottom bracket as well when i can afford it.

    I'm pretty sure I have a 2.5" Manitou spring sitting around. It's yours for pretty cheap.

    What's your riding weight btw? I'm 210lbs and I ended up with a 450lb Ti coil on a CCDB for my Nomad C.

    Yeah it was great fun. The gravelly loose over hard pack made everything tricky. I will definitely go again.
