    Awesome, I've been beating this up for about 4 years now. Looks like they've kept the design the same.



    Actually though, I've got a hankering for the new Automatic!!!

    It is the same design, just using different alu. Anyway, very nice bike you have there. I also have thought of replacing my 2006 stumpy with either one of the Tomac fullsus(Carbide, Snyper or the Auto). Just one want to choose from. Have tested all of them. All are very good climbers. It is not that the Stumpy is no good, just that I would prefer a better climber.

    Holy hell, I didn't know they were offering a hardtail in the new lineup. Guess I should have kept up to date. I see they've kept the CNC yokes which allow big rubber to be fitted. Good stuff. The head tube badge is cool.

    I've been riding a Taos for over 18 months now - it's nice riding a one of a kind bike (and it is around here, at least).

    One frame I'd like to own is the Omen - still available in a few places. Would build up into a nice trailbike IMO.

    Nice looking bike. I have a 97 Manitou HT, and I have been looking into the Tomac Cortez, but I can't find a price for the frame anywhere. Can you give us an idea of the cost of the frame?
    Thanks.

    Sweet bike. I have a tomac buckshot as a backup bike from 2001 and the frame is the same. One problem I now have is tomac changed the dropout depth ~2001 and now all the replacement hangers made by tomac and by all the alternative hanger suppliers do not fit my bike. Even Tomac couldn't help. Have been searching everywhere on the internet to find an original hanger but to no avail. Take some advice, buy at least three hangers from tomac and don't make the same mistake as I did and use the last one without getting a cnc shop to duplicate it. Anyone out there with an old original hanger from 2001 want to donate it to me? Sweet frame, kicks @ss.

    That is one sick build Jamdel. How is the flex on those cranks? Think they would hold up to a Clyde? I'm already heavy at 220, but I will likely reach close to 250 pounds.

    Shouldn't be a problem. I do have a friend about this weigh, useing the same crank. They are superb. Very stiff. That why I have them on all my bikes. Cheers.....

    Jamdel,

    You still thinking of replacing your Stumpy? Santa was good to me and left me a Carbide XC1. We've had record setting snowfall this year so I don't have nearly the miles on it that I'd like, but initial impressions are great. The build quality is top notch, frame is a beauty. With all the snow I've been limited to fairly flat trails, so I can't give a good review of climbing for a few months

    USE Shim

    How'd the shim work out..., I see you eventually changed the post.
    I'm to be getting my Type Xin a few weeks and must shim it.
    I love what you've done here.
    I'm a little lighter in some areas. But some you blow me away. What's the wheelset weigh?

    It was this or a Yeti Arc. After reading this thread I ordered one.

    I always wanted a Manitou back in the old days - this is close.
