    Nomad3 27.5 Aluminum

    Rumor? Anyone know or heard anything about it?

    They got to have it. In order to build the carbon, they have to have a bunch of test bikes in aluminum.

    What is with this wait...Sea Otter in April 2015?

    I think its more likely you will see a lower spec Carbon one in around 6-8 months and no alloy one.

    ok, you have some logic there. Perhaps the game plan is to sell the high grade carbon til sales flatten out. Then introduce the low grade carbon and let that sale flatten out. Eventually when the water calms down, introduce the aluminum nomad3 to spice up the sale.

    That means it could be this time next year or the 2016 Sea Otter before the aluminum version comes out.

    Too bad, by then I would have moved on to two other bike purchased already...
