    nomad or vp-free ?

    after getting all the responses i'm left with these two.(i can get a good deal on either og them).
    the riding style is agressive all mountain/freeride and a little DH once in a while.

    i'd like to be able to pedal with them (they can both pedal but the nomad better), and to take abuse when needed.
    beeing able to take the kids for a ride once in a whule is also a plus (makes the wife happy )

    thanks

    agree with dog and ron but....

    what the real answer is, is: two bikes. Most of us on the Norshore have this dilemma; need for a trail bike you can pedal, and need for a FR bike for descents. Personally I have a cheap (relative, I know) basic '03 Enduro for trail riding, and a Knolly Vtach for Whistler.

    No I'm not lucky, I earned it and besides, I'm old, I can do what I want now as long as my wife says it'/s OK.

    i know the feeling jim
    my wife told me that one pair is more then enough so i have to find that "do it all" more or less bike.
    i still want it to be strong enough to have fun, but pedal good enough so i can take the kids for a ride when my wife tells me

    Go for the Nomad!

    and check out TNCs Nomad and others, they got some sick builds that look like they can take the abuse. Or Pushind Boxxer equipped Nomad with Titanium bits

    Holy Carp b-c...

    that's one big honkin' Nomad! You should know the capabilities, after I watched you motor up Fromme on a Specialized 9!

    I guess I should confess those bars I sent were spiked a bit
