    Now THAT is a great looking Nomad.

    BTW what do you think of the '08 36 talas, i may go with the float version when available- soon i hope.

    Hey ruiabreu

    I must admit, I never was really a Nomad lover until I saw your white example. That is without doubt the best looking one I have ever seen. I am wondering, how do you find the Maz forks? I have heard many people moan about noise and knocking. Also, what model are they precisely (travel adjustment) ?
    That titanium spring looks lovely, how does that perform compared to the standard one.

    Regards

    Hey Horse,
    I've only got 2 rides on the 08's but they're the ****. They work better than the turd brown 06's they replaced. All the adjustments work and they actually get a full 6 plus inches of travel. I only got about 5 and a half inches of travel out of the 06's.

    Lowball, Paikan_hck and all the othe Lyrik Solo Air users - please give us some feedback about the fork. Any pros/contras ? Small bump sensitivity ? Linearity ? Bottom out control ? Net is full of marketing stuff, but how does it preform in real life ? Is it possible to set a sweet spot with plush ride and no bottoming on let's say 6-8 footers ?

    Yeh, Wicked's bike paint scheme doesnt have everyones taste in mind but I gotta give it to him for putting in all the effort he did to his bike. It turned out very proffesional looking.

    Not a big need to put all the specs. You can tell what we have here.
    Items of note, DB and the Totem. This is my trail bike. For me truly and all mountain rig.
    I just finished some odds and ends to prep her for Switzerland. I'll be doing the Cloudracker tour on the 22nd of July. oooooohhhhhweeeeeee.

    works very well !
    smooth, but not too much
    high and low compressions works perfectly and the difference betwenn positions is really easy to feel!
    some small drop with comparing to 36 talas rc2

    Man I get so much shizzola about my bars. I like them rolled forward. I absolutely cannot ride with them pulled back. Thing is that once you sit on the bike with the amount of sag I run the bars end up being almost straight up and down.
    The Totem I thought I would try before I agreed to buy it. Well I bought it. It's nice. I put quite a bit of sag in the front and I have a new CC headset on order that will drop the front about half an inch. I thought the rake was going to be to much but I took it out the other day and did a quick 16 miles. It felt really good on the climbs, the drops, and in the turns. I know I have not lost anything because my nemesis was out there and he tried as he always does not to let me reel him in. HHahahahhaha I don't even know the dude but he is always out there and he is decked out in his Rabo Bank tights, headband, the whole show. Not sure the bike I never pay attention to it. A pretty nice full suspension cross county rig I think. You ride what you like and I can ride that dirty girl anywhere with anyone. I think all of us on this board think the same thing. Now, whether you want to be a jerk like me and come out and say it is another thing.

    Sorry I know this picture has nothing to do with this but I am so proud my Triumph is finally running I thought I would throw it up here.

    Broke her in right. Stright off the build stand into the car and to Tahoe ( 8 hours)

    the color is great, i have a blur lt in blue. But i would change the crankset to a black one. I have a Hone crank. Nearly the same like XT, but black.

    Take a look.

    Pike Fork on the Nomad?

    Yeah, I know it's a bit unusual, am I the only one with a Pike on this thread? I went with the Pike after seeing many of the top riders at Crankworx launching HUGE jumps with it last year. If you pay attention to the bike magazines you will see how much the Pike appears from 4X to Slopestyle to Super D and so on. You don't see it in downhill races but you don't see too many Nomads there either. The Pike feels nimble at 4.5 lbs, can go from 110 to 140m of travel, and a big plus for me is that it rocks a 20 mil quick release Maxle thru axle (I have to take the wheels off when I take my bike in my car). I'll lead a bunch of riders on a climbing sufferfest, rip the downhill, and hit some 8ft drops all on the same bike. It cost me $500 for that fork and it's been worth every penny. I can certainly appreciate anyone wanting to go bigger (and I still might), I can just vouch that the Pike packs alot of thrill per mil.

    Surely you mean 190mm rotors

    Gustavs are the best- just awesome in feel and power.

    are those carbon patches on your tires or is that the construction of the tire?

    heads up...you may want to re-route that front brake hose. If its ran to the outside of the fork( like you have it) its very easy to catch on a tree/bush/rock and rip it out. Like the bike!!

    Here's few pics taken this summer. They're from local trails surrounding city of Tampere here in Finland. All these pics have been taken with my cell phone Nokia N70, not too bad quality.

    Her's mine!
    31,9lbs of pure fun!

    After trying dhx C, this new 08 ROCO TST is one of the best matches for this frame: a little bit plusher but even more active.
    It takes big hits much better and manages technical climbs very easily (pedal kickback has disappeared).

    I like it more than the Roco TST coil it replaced. The rebound of the coil version is just too slow for my riding style. On the other hand, the air can be set very active, has more tuning range and there's no worry about having the correct spring. It is plush out of the box. More so than DHX-a and DHX coil I used to have.
    For those who are thinking of getting one for their Nomad, consider the regular Roco air instead of the TST. Cos the Nomad just doesn't need it

    I admit - 6.6 looks great... But I still think Nomad is just better ! :-)

    To bad this one came out blury. The sunset and shadows provide a great contrast.

    Out in the snow and ice the Nokia extremes are excellent. The rims I'm using here are ex729s with Chris King Hubs.

    You can make out the little studs on the Nokias in this picture. Not sure what I think of the teflon chain yet.
