    THE best color of them all so far. I like the new baby blue OK but this one is way better, especially with the ti/white/and black colors out for forks and shocks right now.

    Lime Green FTW. Color is a little brighter and darker in real life. Pics look a little washed.

    Dang, Inspector Gadget, that's impressive. I didn't expect anyone to notice that. I have new grips that have the end caps built in. I'll be installing those tonight right after I drill out the stripped bolts on the current ones. I must need better tools or something. Good excuse to buy some Park stuff!

    So, by the time I get a real ride in on this thing that'll be covered up. Thank you for your concern. I feel the love.

    Nah, valve caps add rotational weight.

    And I like my WTBs.

    PS - the grips are changed.

    Yes as scruffy said, they are lights. Coloured frogs in front and rear combos. Use it to ride on the street at night with my kid. Cheap and cheerful.

    Does anyone know the color chart for the 2010 models? Maybe the new ano orange found in the D8 will be available for the Nomad as well - it would look killer with that color.

    and from speaking with a few long standing LBS's the ano Nomad is a rare beast. At least it is in my area.

    I love that green ano color

I was on the fence about whether to buy a LT2 or a Nomad. Now, I kind of wish I had bought the Nomad. I picked up a very lightly used Chumba Evo for a great price and that serves as my bigger hit bike. It is great for everything buy climbing and that is where the Nomad would blow it out of the water. So, it is my gravity bike for Downieville and Northstar type riding and the BLT is for everything else.

    Honestly, a Nomad would replace both of those bikes and your is set up right. Is that a 66 Light ETA on your bike? If so, that is an awesome fork and pretty hard to find now. I've been looking.

    Here's mine.
    Been lurking here a lot trying to figure if this is what I wanted. It is and it's a great riding bike. My first "big-ger" bike, but it climbs really well. Talus helps alot on the long, steep climbs in the Pisgah. Going to try to learn the flat pedal thing, but have been riding it clipless. Been stuck to pedals for 30+ years so it may take a bit...

    09 Nomad XL
    10 Fox Talus 1.5"
    Avid Elixir
    H-Schmidt AM
    XO rear D and shifter
    Mavic X-Max SX
    Easton carbon DH
    Thompson X4 1.5"



    33+ lbs seems to be heavy compared to what others are getting theirs down to, but doesn't feel heavy when you're riding. I use the travel adjustment constantly, but I hope the sticktion eases a bit...

    It finally came, and I just took my new Nomad out on it's first ride this morning. What an amazing bike. I'm sure glad I didn't go for the LT2.
    I built it up with the XO parts kit, DHX air, and Talas 36. 29.2 lbs feels lighter than I thought it would!
    I don't feel the need to post a picture because it doesn't have any special bling on it yet. . .

    Dammit, these are all H-O-muthafuggin-T.

    Erigre, what a spec! I'd be surprised if it weighed as much as 33lbs.

    Scruffy, what can I say. The green looks amazing. Forgive me if you've already posted it elsewhere, but you had an '08 didn't you? how does the new one compare?

    Also, any of you boys and girls running the new Monarch shocks, how are they working out for ya?

    Yes, I agree. I really like the green. Wasn't sold on it at first. I've always owned conservative dark colored bikes. But now I love the color.

    I did have an 08 and this one feels like home to me. I need some more time on the bike to gather all my thoughts together though. Give me a little bit more time and I'll post up some thoughts.

    Nomad 09

    Here is my red Nomad. At the beginning, the rear suspension did not feel plush but it is getting better after several rides. I am very happy about the ability of this bike as a trail bike and light free rider. I have not had time to do much downhill yet. I put Marzocchi 55 TST2 because I had it. I want to change it to Fox 36 or Totem Solo Air but cannot decide. I really wish Fox comes up with a 7 inch travel fork that is stronger than 36 and lighter than a Totem Solo Air. I feel Sun Charger wheels are a bit flex. I may change butted spokes to straight ones. Does anyone know if that will increase lateral stiffness of the wheels?

    nice looking bike!

    but what do you want to do with your new ride that a 36 cant handle?
    Sokrates is dead, Galilei is dead, Newton is dead, Einstein is dead, Pantani is dead and i am feeling sick too.

    Erigre, what a spec! I'd be surprised if it weighed as much as 33lbs.

    I was surprised myself, but I weighed it and it came in at 33.5 or so. H-Schmidt adds some and I have a crappy seatpost, but it must be the frame gets much heavier in the bigger sizes? Maybe the Ardents are heavy compared to what others are using? Not sure and it's not a big deal.
    I've only done 3 real rides on it, but felt comfortable immediately. My main rides have been Stumpjumpers, 04 Pro and lately 09 Stumpy 29er which is an awesome bike for what I mostly do in the eastern Pisgah (Wilsons Creek and thereabouts). Lots of ripping single track, but got to go back up and that usually means hour plus gravel. Full lockout is nice.
    I've been traveling alot for work and the Nomad has not been ridden at home, but was good in PA's Michaux and MD's Frederick watershed, both very rocky. Can't wait to get home and put it to the Pisgah test!

    I like slack head angle. 7 inch travel fork will give a bit slacker head angle and more lateral rigidity will make me feel safe. I will appreciate this especially when I go to bike parks with chair lifts but Fox 36 will be the best fork for most of the ride I do.

    You should go 36 Vanilla all the way. But if you have time to spare, 2010 Lyriks will have 170mm (just what you want) and will be available in both air and coil options. Well, just a thought... Nice bike, BTW. I can't wait to have mine (long story short, ordered a BLT2, a BXCc came instead, now placed an order on a Nomad), but I'll probably be using a 2010 TALAS 36. If only RS could come with a Lyrik 3-step, that would be nice.

    All this pictures just gets my juices flowing. Can't wait to get mines. To bad I live in Hawaii, I would have drove the factory to get it. SC sent it on the boat and I should be getting my powdercoat red in a couple of days.

    Thanks! I have ridden fox 36 float and liked it very much. I guess 36 Van will be as good or better for going down. I don't know how Lyriks is like. I did not know that Lyriks will have 170mm for 2010. 170mm could be the best for me. I have to keep an eye on it. I used to ride Outland VPP5 and this bike had so many troubles. So, I went to a single pivot (2002 Kona Stinky) and I was very happy until I felt I am slower than friends. Now i am back to VPP and I am much happier. This bike climbs technical stuff so well. Old VPP on Outland was only good when the trail is smooth. On a rough trail, as soon as the wheel lose traction, the bike moved downward suddenly and there was kick back on the pedal. So it was very difficult to keep going. Nomad still has some kick back but it is controllable as long as my legs are not too tired. I am also amazed by the fact that I can stand up and pedal on very rough steep stuff and near vertical rocks.

    It finally got to the island. Jason at Bikewerx, mililani put it together and I took it for a ride and it just gave me a big smile. All the reviews are dead on right. The new DHX RC4 shock is so tunable, I think I got it working to my style of riding (a little bit of everything).

    Mk2

    Here's my 2nd Nomad. Not a huge difference to 1st generation Nomad, but it feels a bit faster and more agile.



    Since the picture, I've changed the shock to Monarch, fixed the cable routings and cut the steerer tube.

    Haven't weighted it yet, but I guess it's somewhere around 13kg with Monarch...

    Man those are some really nice Nomads.
    And also, theres quite a bit of cash in this thread.

    Those pink wheels look sick! (+)

    Concerning the Hammerschmidt orange Nomad:
    I donīt want to sound like a dork, but your bars are really high and the seat + setback seatpost seems really close to the rear axle.
    I always rode similar setups, but in the last 2 years I changed it to a lot less spacers under the bar and the seat a lot more forward. My experience was, that the bike climbed a lot better and also didnīt wash out in sharp turns as much. I even felt better and faster on the DH. Itīs a cheap experiment, maybe you want to try it.

    If you feel comfortable on your bike, just forget my "advice". Itīs just that my bike looked similar

    Please do yourself a favour and take a good look at this clamping unit - it is well scary and dangerous on a hc bike:/

    SORRY FOR THE OT but this is one scary item
    where can you get these clamps from? Crank brothers? My maverick speedball needs a new clamp...

    Znarf-

    Been waiting for someone to comment on the funny seat set-up. I pulled the post and seat out of my Stumpy 29er and slid it in there with no adjustmants. I've since put a Thompson 0 • seatpost and dropped the stem a bit. In that photo the stack on the steerer was a 1.5" plumbing fitting (forgot to order 1.5" spacers, duh!) that I found at Lowes so I could at least ride the damn thing. Still have not cut the steerer. Been riding motos alot and really am used to the bars being high. Contrast to my 30+ years of road position, low and long. I also the like the handling with the Thompson stubby, 45mm, stem, but need to go to at least 75mm to get comfortable.
    This Nomad is my first venture toward a bigger bike and while I've changed my mtn position dramatically in the last 20 years, think 1.5' wide bars, bar ends, stem slammed, seat at the road position, etc for a start, it's another stretch to get to a AM (hate that definition) position that works for climbing and descending.
    The cool thing about bikes is almost anyone can find a position that works, but you look at your buddies and wonder how the hell they ride their bike like that until they ride away from you, whether it's up or down.

One caveat. That long bolt is of a thicker diameter than the standard top cap bolt. So forget using your pretty CK top cap or anything else other than the one that Gusset provides. I will probably drill out my CK one eventually but the Gusset one wasn't hideous (not the one in the pic above).

    Yep, it is up and running. The addition of the Seabright Blue is nice, liked it a lot, but ano orange is still the one color missing for the Nomad...

    Anyone that has "upgraded" to the new MK2 have a Large Mk1 that they want to sell? Frame or complete - PM or email me.

    Sorry to post in this forum, but spending an hour looking at all these sweet rides has me convinced to sell the Heckler.

    thx. i'm still playing with the build and setup a bit but it's 99% what i want now.

    i'm experimenting with the wheels - front is a Stans Flow/Hope Pro II/supercomp setup with rim strip and Muddy Marys - been a great setup so far. Rear is a DT5.1D/King/supercomp also tubeless with rim strip.

    brakes are Elixir Rs... waiting for Elixir Mags... using marta 203/180mm rotors to save a bit of weight.

    stinger chainguide with XTR cranks and bb and 24/34 specialites rings (these are a PITA to setup on XTR - not recommended)

    E2 steerer Totem air with e13 zero stack upper cup

    Chromag stuff can't be beat IMO.

    Wicked. Looks like a '60s Aston Martin morphed into a bike. If you get round to it some time, could you measure BB height (from center BB Bracket) with that totem please?

    Very nice bike. I am planning to up grade my fork to a Totem solo air or Fox 36. If you have tried both of these, I really want to know how you compare these two. I will appreciate more photos of your bike from different angles as well! Also, my Nomad is with DHX air and I bang my pedal very often to the ground. Does that happen to you with this coil shock? Do you think longer fork (like Totem) helps this issue? Again, very good looking bike with very light weight.

    I ride a solo air and spent two weeks on my LBS's talas 36 last season. I would go with the Fox. I love the overall feel, can't really pinpoint it specifically but I felt the control factor was more evident, at least it was to me subjectively. Plus you get the option of travel adjustment.

    Got a few rides on mine. Digging it so far. It weighs a few thousand pounds with the Subaru attached. A smaller car would probably lighten things up a bit.

    Nice!

    I really like that green on the Nomad. Almost as much as the Ano Green.

    yeah, santa cruz nailed it with the green ano IMO, it's a classic colour.

    my BB is 14 1/8 inches with the totem. keep in mind that the tires i'm running have MASSIVE volume which probably raises the bike a bit. i need a new lower headset cup and am going to put in a low stack headset cup to drop 5mm or so and tighten up the bike a tiny bit.

Do you think longer fork (like Totem) helps this issue? Again, very good looking bike with very light weight.
    i've had a bunch of forks including the 36 coil and talas and totem coil and air. my thoughts:

    - 09 and newer talas' are great if you want adjustable travel;

    - coil 36s are better than talas' IMO and weight the exact same;

    - air and coil totems are very similar in feel and both are a noticeably bigger, more confidence inspiring fork than a 36. coil 36s are most reliable. obviously 36s can handle anything but a totem can be legimately run on a dedicated DH bike. get a totem if you want to go big and fast with your nomad and want more fork to save your ass once in a while. i ride/shuttle my nomad on the same stuff i ride my DH bike on. air totem is 1/2 pound more than a 36 coil/talas and a coil totem is almost a pound more. the advantage of the air totem is that you can internally lower the travel to whatever you want, say 175 or 168mm or whatever to get the geo you want.

    - your ride height when pedalling should be the same/similar regardless of air vs. coil shock. check your sag. my BB is 14 1/8 inches with the totem and i'm going to get it a bit lower. i don't have problems tagging pedals.

    Thanks for the comment. I have tried 36 Talas and I liked it very much but don't know Totem. I was thinking about 36 float cause it is a bit lighter than Talas and I don't think I use travel adjustment. Do you know if Float performs the same way as Talas without travel adjustment?

    if you liked the talas, you'll love the float. IMO, floats perform the same (vs. 09 talas) and better than talas' but are a half pound lighter.

    I've had the 07 Talas 36 RC2 on an 08 Nomad and I'm running a 09 Float RC2 on my 09 Nomad. Hands down, I'd go with the Float every time. I never used the travel adjust and the sticky air spring required extra maintenance to keep it smooth.

    I love the Float, never looking back.

    So I've had a the bike for a couple of weeks now and f-ing love it! It was everything I hoped for and more. Here's a few pictures. I swapped out those hideous Nevegals and put my Command Post and this bike climbs unbelievably.

    Finally! ITS MINE
    Since i lost my previous gen1 Nomad to my husband I opted for a new one rather than try and wrestle it back.



    from what i understand its the first Ano Green one in NZ and its ALL mine. Will post pics of it in a week or so when all the other bits and pieces for it arrive.

    Will be doing a build blog on my flickr also

    Nice frame

    I love the Ano Green on the Nomad. I think it is the best color out right now from all bike brands I've seen. Your hubby will soon have his eyes set on your new bike so don't forget your big stick!

    cheers for the quick answer. My totem solo air beats my 09 36 talas by far in the gnar. Tried both back to back on the tracer vp (poor thing). Now on a nomad, with only 14 1/8 BB height, no spacers and my low and wide burgtec bars...could be the lightish, heavy duty-trailbike I'm looking for.
    Hm, expensive thoughts again, as ever.

    gratiflying and hmto, Thank you for your comments. Now I know both forks are good and my fork choice depends if I want more rigidity or less weight. I want to switch two forks. It is too hard to decide on one...

    Beautiful! I love the ano green. And is that a small?

    I was told today mine is on the way, maybe arriving in 3-4 weeks or less, but I don't know which color it is yet. I was given 3 choices and I choose the ano green as the first choice, the ano slate as the second color and white as the 3rd (the seabright blue wasn't available yet by the time I ordered, if so, it would be a solid 2nd - yes, I like the ano green that much!).

    But I'm stocking the parts right now. I already got my XT 20mm wheelset and the Joplin R, as well as a nice Gobi XM and Peaty lock on grips. Next week I'll be receiving the SLX crankset and FD, and pretty much a full XT drivetrain. Haven't decided on the brakeset yet, but I'll probably go with the XT brakeset as well, or maybe Hope Minis.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/nordynz...7621565835268/ is where i will be posting photos of stuff as it arrives, I have had to order some of it from the UK and the US as I couldnt get exactly what i want from here. The frame is a medium.

    Mine is mostly SRAM, Hope and Raceface, although some of the Raceface stuff wont arrive for another month but its going to look awesome when its done.

    I love blue but find that Seabright a bit bright for my liking, so glad i was able to get the Green. My current (stolen by my hubby) nomad is liquid blue.

    @67degrees Thanks for the advice about the big stick, hes already eyeing it up. I told him he could have it if I get his TV, Car and Motorbike in return.. Funnily enough he quickly handed it back :P

    Those are some nice SRAM shifting gear... trying so hard to find those, but my LBS still hasn't recieved them... maybe online, I'm going to look for them.

    Guess you will have some nice red stuff on... maybe a red King headset?

    @hitek79:

    Your Lyrik is a Solo-Air, isn't it? How do you like it? I was offered today a good deal on one, so how it's doing, do you miss travel adjustment? Yours a 1.5 steerer?

    Hi Krolik, how does it ride with Rohloff? Isn't an unsprung mass in the rear too much obvious?
