    You can't make a racehorse out of a donkey, but you can make a fast donkey.

    Don't tell me it lives under a blue tarp - that is sad. Put that thing in your bed if you have to, but bring it inside!!

    Ah, and this is the clamp comparison:
    (original - crap
    bonty - cool
    repair kit - cool b/o color)

    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

    Its Finally Arrived!!!

    Five months ago I was the very first person in Australia to lay down a deposit for a Nomad Mk 2. This is only the second large frame to be built up here, the first was
    the importer's as his personal ride.

    All the previos Nomads up to 08 are just refinements of the original design. The 09 (mark 2) version has been redesigned from the ground up.

    This bike belongs to my internet-handicapped buddy. Size med, 29.75lbs. It's a pretty light bike considering the build. It has a complete XT build, Talas RC2, Hope Pro II with Stan's Flow rims. It would be really easy to take another lb off this rig!

    I wonder how will the XL look like. It is soo frustrating to see all those PC running when you've ordered your ano:/ Friend of mine just received a confirmation his red pc is ready for pickup:/
    At least there is no ano anywhere in the world

    These builds and weights are amazing. I am completely sold on one for this season, crazy to have such a capable bike so light.

    bbbbking, that is one sweet looking bike. I have always been a fan of the white frames and the white forks really set the tone.

    Is that a painted frame thats been stripped and polished. If so how much work was needed. I'm liking that finish.
    You can't make a racehorse out of a donkey, but you can make a fast donkey.
