    How about a carbon RFX for 2011?

    Did anyone notice that new carbon Nomad?

    quite the e-love affair with the nomad-c so far, nobody is complaining about the 14" high BB yet.

    Well no matter what it's either going to be too high or too low for half the people. The 08 Highline and RFX both had bb's higher than that... right?

    1.5 headset allows for some adjustment of the head angle... too bad there isn't an adjustable shock mount, for the bb height. Maybe that isn't ideal for vpp though.

    Anyways... the Nomad isn't the bike for me, but I think they are building some cool stuff, and I am stoked to see it.

    What if Turner came out with a DW-link RFX in 2011... 13.75 BB, 66.5 HA, 1.5 head tube, carbon fiber chassis... 8 pounds with coil shock... that would be rad, no?

    It's just funny how this forum is vocal about things like BB height but with the nomad-c all you hear is it's light and it's pretty.

    Yep, SC does it again. They must have the best marketing dept. in the industry.

    Its funny how they have been mass producing frames overseas for several years now and they have been able to keep their "boutique" bike appeal and high prices. That's gotta kill DT.

    Check out the classifieds. There is a fire storm of "old" SC bikes for sale. Consumers haven't even seen this bike and they are already buying them up.

    My hats off to SC. They run a great business.
