    Nomad Went On a Diet

    Got rid of the Front Deemax wheel and the rear 5.1D laced to a 340 hub. Replaced with a Crossmax ST 20mm Wheelset and added a Ti Coil

    First Pic is 3 springs left to right is RCS, then Cane Creek steel coil, and a Progressive Ti all of them are 2.5's

    According to the ghetto scale that I have which is only good to the .5 lb, it went from 34.5 to 33lb

    That's about where mine is...32.6lbs...with an Evolver rear air shock. Good setup there.

    Is that a Vanilla in the front? Could go to a Float. I have a Talas and with a spring my scale says 31.5lbs (Crossmax SX and Crank Bros Candy pedals)

    I thought about doing that but I love the feel of coils. Granted Ive never rode a Float or Talas 36, but vs the Pike's ive been on I prefer the feel of the coil.

    My next steps might be a Thompson seatpost, maybe a different handelbar, lighter seat. After that im pretty much done with it for the time being

    Jeez, It's Quick, that's pretty light! I haven't weighed mine. I'm afraid I'll become disatisfied and obsessed if I do. Right now, I'm pleasantly ignorant of the actual weight.

    Magrsrgod,

    Never ridden on a vanilla before, but I can vouch for the TALAS. It allows me to run my Nomad eveywhere from XC, trail riding, to Chairlift country. Shucks it survived Whistler without a problem. If your looking for a light seatpost, I would go with a Race Face.

    Scruffy,
    How you been? Yeah I think having a small makes a big diff. All the chairlift operators can't believe how light it is and actually think it's pretty crazy.

    Ix - Hey man, doing well. Busy as always. Hope you're doing well, too. I can't believe my medium is that much heavier. Then again, you're running all air suspension, right?

    IX what seatpost did you have in mind? I'm currently running a Race face Ride post on it.

    My bike is a Small as well but running the coil fork and the coil shock definitly add some weight. Though Malcolm at CC said the DB with a Ti spring weighs about 2oz more than a DHXA, unfortunatly I dont have a scale to see how close they actually are.
