    What I want to know is if it will come with insets so I can still run my 150mm rear hub, or will I need to switch to a dt 240 hub as that converts to 157mm? Would hate se sell the king hubs....

    Very, very nice, but I think I'm sticking with my old V10 Carbon. I just hope that they would release the new carbon swingarm for the older frame (in matching colorways of course). Otherwise I'm saving my money for Nomad Carbon mk3. It must be the next frame update that comes out, right?

    Wow, 2 lbs lighter and with the new Fox 40 coming out, a total of 3lbs. Wish I had the coin for that ride.

    I think DT and Hope hubs you just use the 142 caps on the 150 hub. There are threads on it out there.

    Isn't this also a substantial price drop? I live in flatlandia, but I'm pretty sure the 4th gen V10 was more expensive.. $4500ish?

    3500 is for the frame

    Yes, I know. When the V10 4th gen frames were in the SC parking lot sale, they were discounted to $3200.

    Won't fi, I contacted King, the new 157mm King rear hub has different internals, so you will need a new hub or send your old hub to King for conversion.....

    What could possibly be updated on the Nomad, except maybe bumping it up to 170 or 175mm of travel?

    That's King for you. DT and Hope you just pop the 142 hub end caps on and RIDE.

    Lighter, redefined spring curve, geometry, wheel size

    I kinda doubt they'd change the travel,,,

    Except for weight, I wouldn't want any of those things.

    66.5* HA and lowering the BB by 0.25" would be awesome. They should also have two different upper links for air/coil. I think the current design is great for coil but they should make another one for air with less wallow in the 80-120mm range

    Haha, that's great. Good luck with that one. I think that this is a very positive move for the industry and think that it will be just a matter of time before the others (Trek and Specialized) follow. That said, I would rather go with a new V10c any day.

    Jimba,
    Is the DM rear mech mount even an option yet?
  • 01-06-2013

    Whoa, that is one dialed ride! The only thing I would add is a titanium spring on the shock. Nice work and congratulations to you!

    What pedals there Jimba?

    Not sure if the DM is an option yet.

    Ti spring is on its way. also A different pair of wheels is going on the bike and a Easton stem. All that should get it to about 36 even.

    Renton spring.

    Ti spring will definitely add to the look.

    New rims in black and you'll have one absolutely gorgeous bike! In my opinion of course.

    I have just used my V10 for the first time and find that the front end lifts a bit more than I am used to when jumping. I have heard it is a bi-product of the DW link. I have a Fox 40 air on the front and a RC4 coil on the back. Does anyone know of a way to tune the suspension to calm that down a bit?
    Thanks!

    are you running it in 8.5 or 10 inch mode?

    I am running it with 10. I am not that great a rider.
  • 08-05-2013
    Jimba
    More than likely the condition you are having is a result of running it in 10" mode. You will get a more lively feel when jumping if you run it in a 8.5 inch mode. Remember you need a 50 lighter spring when running 8.5 inch.

    The '13 V-10 frame (with DHX RC4 with titanium coil) seems perfect as the one trail bike for nearly all occasions, but I'd keep a second bike, my steel hardtail, dedicated for XC racing.

    When I buy the new V-10 frame I'd have to give away my old Bullit frame.
