    Does anybody with a Yelli Screamy also have a Nomad?

    I'm trying to figure out what size I need and I can't find any reach measurements on the SC Nomad. I'm 6'3 with a 32" inseam and have a L Yelli Screamy with a 50mm stem. Going by ETT the L Yelli Screamy (24.5" ETT) is closer to the XL Nomad (24.8 ETT). Optimally I'd like to test ride a medium and a large Nomad, but that's not gonna happen. So, anyone have any experience?

    You have a very long torso...I'm 6'1" with a 33" inseam riding a Large YS and a Large Nomad. I run a 90mm stem with flat bars on the YS and an 80mm with risers on the Nomad. The Nomad is certainly shorter in the cockpit than the YS, but it isn't a problem for me.

    I have a lg Nomad2, and a lg Yelli, and I'm 6'3".

    Both bikes fit well for their intended purpose with a 70 mm stem and 720 mm bars.

    The ETT and reach on my nomad is just long enough for me.

    Cool, I appreciate the input. I was thinking the large would be a better fit for me, and I could always use a post with some offset and a little longer stem if I felt the need. I definitely have a long torso and short legs for my height, my arms are probably in the short end of the spectrum too. I think the short arms are what makes me feel so stretched out in a conventional XC cockpit. Now I need to sell a couple frames I've been hoarding so I can pull the trigger on a Nomad!
