    Nomad C and BOS Kirk - Any one tested it yet?

    Love my Nomad with the BOS Stoy and Deville combo. Now BOS claims air shock can have the same feeling their coils do, so is there any one with Nomad and a Kirk to share the experience here?

    Question is when you have a lot of pedalling is clear that Stoy is not fastest one and of course I can go to a CK air but I really fan of the BOS hydraulics, just don't know if is possible to feel that on a air shock with the VPP2.

    It's the only decent one I find too. Find strange no one given experience on Kirk Nomad combination and would like to have some, since is not the first a very good shock is not working absolutely well on a certain frame, like CK DB on a M9

    Any way Is not clear at all if the next Nomad will use the same shock size and that is very important peace of information to by a Kirk now.

    Obrigado

    I change my Fox CTD Kashima for a DB air CS XV, is wayyy better, my first impressions was, traction, much much better traction, and control of the mid travel, that weren't any with the Fox.

    Mine came from TF tuned with settings, the sag was spot on but the settings I use came from Cane Creek - The Lounge (not very different), two rides and is the way I like.
    I have a friend waiting for a Kirk but it's for a Transition Covert.
