    I'm hoping Santa Cruz makes this into an enduro ripper, and one that comes in a proper XXL for us bigger folk! A large enduro has a reach that is 1.2" longer than my XL Nomad C. Time to update sizes so that we can run longer top tubes and shorter stems SC!

    V10 alu or new vpfree/bullit would be cool (and about time)

    Yep. Plus the Enduro World Series logo at the lower right. A new Nomad I would guess. I would also guess 27.5 or 26 for the wheels. Can't wait to see what it is.

    Hoping for the revised Nickel with 13.1 BB and lighter weight, at least under 6 lbs. Same geo, same price.

    Or

    Update the superlight with APP and Nickel/TR's Geo...

    Hurry up with it too SC, because I'm itching to buy TRC soon to relace my Stumpy carbon Evo.

    A V10 29er... That would be completely different. A lot of company making 650b so my guess would be big wheels AND big travel...

    I kinda seriously doubt it would be a (new) Nomad Mk3, even in aluminum, since the 2013 Nomad C, is already available and unchanged from the previous MY2012, apart from the 142x12 rear axle.
    Unless they introduce a brand new aluminum design for the Mk3 Nomad (similar to how Spesh changed the Enduro design in 2010, with the X cross section in the frame, I think).
    Looking forward to April 1st, nonetheless...

    This would be fantastic. My XL Nomad is far too short in reach for a modern bike. Not hat I don't love it but I need to run a longer stem than I'd like.

    They just need to make a rear triangle with replaceable dropouts for the TRc, so you can build it with either 26 or 27.5 wheels (and fit big 27.5 tires with full travel) -- like Intense does. Same for the Nomad.

    @eleven-yo, I'm still laughing. No offense to Marky, but your post was hilarious and definitely puts into perspective what is, and what is not, inexcusable. I'm sorry, but having to wait for a frame isn't on the inexcusable list. And if it is, some perspective is in order. For a list of what is inexcusable, try a cancer board, or maybe one around recovery-- lots of inexcusable there. Not so much here.
    I'll be along... eventually.

    Here's what I see
    29 r wheel
    Flattish bars
    Full face

    My guess - 29 nomad. Maybe 29DH but my gut says 29 nomad. It also says Faaaarrrrttt!

    I'm guessing, something for Enduro (it has the Enduro World Series simbol) so something BLT/Nomad, but 29"?? almost anybody are using 29" on Enduro, at least here in Europe, 650??? well the guys from Cube are using the new model, but 95% preferring the 26".

    I also think that the Wheel Looks kind of tall.
    I wish it was a 29er Nomad.

    Rock Shox is coming out with a 160mm 29er fork, as I am told by rumor.

    a 29er with 150-160 mm travel would be sick. nomad 29 would be perfect but I honestly do not think they will be doing it. moreover, I more think it will be a 27,5 which I honestly would not buy cause 29 is the right choice for trail. i tried the scott 27,5 trail bike and I could not see any difference between 26 and 27,5 . it was quite the same.

    I suppose it just depends what trails you ride. I went from an average 2.35" tire [Nevegal] to a bigger than advertized 2.4" tire on my Nomad [Conti Trail King] and the difference is amazing on my rooty/rocky trails. The 2.4" rolls over roots and rocks without getting hung up and my pedal strikes are significantly reduced. I think 650B will be perfect for our trails.

    I've also got a 29er hardtail and would rather get a 27.5/650B FS 6" travel bike - call it a Nomad or call it something else. I'm not sold on 29" wheels for a 6"+ travel FS bike.

    If I lived somewhere buff I probably wouldn't notice a difference or care about 27.5/650B bikes.
    Safe riding,

    I agree. Long travel 29s always end up having funky frame geometry due to the large wheel size and trying to make enough room for wheel travel. I think anyhting over 4" travel should be 27.5 or 26. They just plain ride better overall. Granted, a 29 wheel will always roll over things better, but there is definitely a point of diminishing returns as the travel increases. We may well see 27.5 becoming the standard within a few years for longer travel bikes. Bike manufactures have jumped on the bandwagon of larger hoops, but they just don't work in some cases. Personally I just don't like the oveall ride of a 29 bike on any frame, but that's just my opinion. 650B for me!

    Maybe they're going to introduce a line of components -- drivetrains or wheels or something. It seems like "completely different" should mean more than just a new 650b or 29er, but that could just be marketing of course.

    Santa Cruz has me interested - been looking at the Nomad C or TBLTC. This announcement might change things a little. Intrigued so might as well jump in with some e-speculation. 150mm travel, 650b, low, slack, blah, blah, blah.

    I just heard from high up sources at Santa Cruz that they are going to have a naming contest for this bike. I'm submitting "Frankenbike", any others??
