    Looks like you're gonna make some special links for the back. Hmmm, interesting.
    BTW, those are Boxxer crowns.

    New Swing Links like they did for the Intense 5.5 and Spider?

    Nomad

    Well, other than machining the hub bearing guides, all of the pivot pins, pivot caps, replacing all of the fasteners with Titanium, building a one-off Boxxer U-Turn with 360 Maxle, custom XO shifter perch clamps, of course Team Edition DHX Coil, as well as a few other goodies......it's completely stock!

    That guy and his company should be banned from MTBR. He does this little teasing stunt on the Turner forum regularly and now he is moving over to the SC forum. He even has accomplices (a certain Larry, relatively unknow here on MTBR!!!) on the Turner forum so sometimes it's the accomplice that posts those teasing photos or text. I just can't believe we, the mountain bike customers, tolerate such behavior, and worst of it, we even spend our dollars encouraging such a guy!

    Ho OK, so what is it gonna be Darren? I guess my Push RP3 on my Banzai will need a little brother when I get my FloatR Nomad, or is it gonna be my Rocco that will need a PUSH sticker, or my bearings that will need to be PUSHed out or am I gonna have to PUSH and shove my rockers around! Eventually, we'll start saying WTP instead of WTF!

    Thanks for providing these goodies to us, but PLEASE, let us know exactly WHAT goodies we can expect!

    Can't give you any close-ups, but here you go!

    I'll continue to post the updates...should only take another day or two to get it built. Test day at the Moto track on Thursday will keep me from the office so I'm hoping to have it finished by that morning. Glad you guys are interested....this is turning out to be a pretty fun project for us. It's been in the low 70's here so I can't wait to rip on it!

    Darren, great, you'll be riding a Nomad now. So when I send you my FloatR or my Rocco later this year you'll be able to do a good job on them for me! The Push RP3 on my Banzai is the best air shock I've had but there is still something to be desired in terms of small bump compliance on the downhill. I think the Nomad with Rocco will take care of that but I'll send you the FloatR for a treatment!

    Have fun riding it, and since you've been teasing us like that it would be just fair if you would pay us back with some nice feedback on how you like the ride on the Nomad...

    Came apart easily! Seriously, I've got limited time on my friends Nomad. This will be the first bike that I log some real miles on.

    When we're riding Moto, it's nearly impossible to get anyone to stop to take photos.

    Just remember, lots of photos of trick Nomads on mtbr means lots of money in Darren and Jimmy's pockets!

    Unfortunately No, but we will have some pretty cool DHX kits coming later this month!

    damn thats a nice fork
    And if you could only see what we've got inside of it!

    Well, had a little time this morning to make a few additions.....here's what I've got so far:

    Will it be available in other colors than RED? I was thinking of gold color scheme for my nomad, I might have to reconsider now.

    That red would really match BanzaiRider's Nomad! Sweet!!

    I am more interested in why you chose to work on a nomad over other similar bikes.
