    Absolutely marvellous!

    Are the codes overkill for that bike? Looks sweet!

    This fork is the '07 66 RV ETA (Italian production line), is 160mm, perfectly suited for the Nomad.
    It was OEM on my Kona Coiler deluxe and I am very happy so far. It forgives very much abuse.
    At some point I will go for a Fox Van 36 RC2 but not yet.

    No, not really an overkill for the steep very rocky descents and loose gravel trails of the Athenian mountains I ride.
    But they do consume the brake pads twice as faster than the Juicy 3s on my Spesh Big Hit which was a HEAVY bike indeed.
    Going for replacement pads after six months probably this week.
    Any suggestions on what pads to choose and why? Organic vs. Metallic?

    I was all ready to wait another month or so until I decided out of the blue I would email SC to see about ano delivery time.

    Guess what? They're early so they are shipping out back orders currently. Now I can't wait even another week. If you're lucky depending upon size it won't be long now.

    All I have to ride is a 22yr old Fisher Montare...

    All they said was they were early and were currently shipping all back orders. So if you ordered yours earlier, not sure how early, and also I guess depends on the amount of each they received at SC, your LBS should be getting them soon. I wasn't told which colour or sizes they got in.

    I only ordered mine maybe 2-3 weeks ago so not likely mine will arrive until end of month.

    I ordered a L slate.

    Guess I was told the truth on deliveries. Let the ano pics thread begin.

    No offence I like white, my 06 I just sold was white, but there are way too many whites in the pic thread. Let's see the ano and other colours.

    woohooo!

    Sweet Jim, picked mine up today, bit late to do photos, maybe tomorrow!!

    As for your son, that day will come soon enough, probably a bit too soon. My experience suggests that by the time they get to around 8 or 9, your way behind. So make the most of it whilst he is still on the green machine and following...... because it won't be too long before you are shelling out big bucks and chasing his tail.... if you dare go where he does!!

    Ditching those training wheels will speed up the process. My son had the same bike and he was riding on his own at 3 1/2, your son looks older than that. Lower the seat and remove the training wheels AND pedals. He will cruise around for a little bit (like less than an hour) and will feel the balance, then put the pedals back on and let him rip...

    Have not been able to get to the trails yet, but if my experience in the driveway is any indication I am going to be very pleased with the Nomad.

    I came to the Nomad from a Specialized FSR XC. This is a much more upright riding position than the FSR had. So far I'm liking that. I can balance while stopped on the Nomad much longer than the FSR. I can ride a wheelie further, not sure how that helps but it is fun. And isn't that why I bought the thing!

    Over all I feel more in control and the bike feels more nimble than my old Spec. Seems strange to me I was expecting a bike that I may have to throw around some, but it seems easier to ride than the FSR.

    Really looking forward to Saturday to get a chance to give it a test on the trails.

    Nice Nomad too btw. Heck, there isn't a non-nice one in this whole thread.

    I'm lurking here to see if the Nomad Mk2 I saw at Mt Buller (Australia) last weekend gets posted here anytime soon. Black, BOS S**toy shock, BOS N'dee fork. Probably the best looking one I've seen.

    Ahhh you saw that one!! That is a mate of mine from Maindample, just in. I'm back in Oz next week, with mine, will try to get some pics and post them!! Yeah, he went for the full Bos set up, would have cost a bomb, but then again, never been an issue with him.

    Thank you.

    Questions, on the rear brake mounts, the screws heads that came with the hayes brakes don't fit in the inset holes. I was looking at everyone else's set up and all the screw heads are flush with the inset hole. Did any of you have go buy smaller headed screws or did everyone's fit the first time?
    Also, with the Chris King 1.5 Devolution headset, do you have to use the preloader that came with it or can I use the star fangled nut thats already in my steer tube. Thank you Ill put some more pics up when its complete.

    I had the same issue when I got rid of the avid juicys that came with my BLT2 for some shimanos xt. I sold the juicys and when I got the shimano the bolts came with a little ring that you cannot take off that would not fit into the santacruz brake holes... Had actually a hard time finding the right bolts.

    I used button head Avid adapter mounting bolts and it worked like a charm.
