Recently took my 2011 Nickel to Gooseberry Mesa in Utah for its first time and two weeks later to Moab. The bike is exceptional. My favorite bike in 26 years of mtbing. 1600+ miles,and counting, in 10 months on the Nickel.
Here it is leaving a tire tattoo on the Trek(Twrecks) we shared the trail with on Gooseberry Mesa.
In Moab I test road my buddies rental (2013 Rocky Mountain Altitude 27.5 wheels) on a 6 mile ride. While I like the 27.5 wheels and how they rolled, I couldn't wait to get back on my Nickel. The Rocky's over all ride sucked compared to the Nickel; may have been the Rock Shox rear shock?
