    Looks pretty sweet.

    The ignitors look kinda small for such a "big" bike though. Darn maxxis and their mini 2.35s.

    Good looking rig man. Those XT wheels look dope.
    I am immune to your disdain.

    Yep, I've come to the conclusion that white SC bikes still ROCK!
    Congrats on the new build!

    Looks sweet!! I'm liking that white more and more. I have those exact same tires on my Nomad, and I was kind of enraged when I mounted mine up at how small they turned out to be. At a claimed 2.35", they're a lot smaller than my supposed 2.30" Hutchinsons were. I wish the tire mfctrs would come up with some kind of consensus on sizes. But on the plus side, they're light and flickable! Anyway, nice bike!

    nice ride. what do you think of the XT/XTR group? I'm running XTR'08 on my blur. I rarely see XT or XTR parts on Nomads. Normally SRAM XO/X9 parts with Juicy brakes. Probably since SC doesn't offer XT AM build kits. Anyways, would like your feedback as I'm getting ready to spec a Heckler and I'm leaning towards an XT build.

    thanks for all the replies...i have gotten the nomad dirtty since then and so far the xt/xtr group works dang good.. I still need to get the brakes bedded in properly but other then that the thing rides smooth and the shadow rear mech is a lot quicker then the other xtr derailleurs i have used and it is a lot more silent...the saddle does take some time to get used to but it was the only white one i could find that looked somewhat decent.

    I find your use of the handicap sign tasteless and offensive.
