    SC Nomad or SC BLT2 for Moab

    Hello. my trip days are getting closer (sep 15) and I cant decide between a SC nomad or a SC blt2 for my bike rental.
    I know there are a lot of variables here, but generally speaking its 5.5 vs 6.5 travel bike but... its also 29lb vs. 34lb bike.
    Im also having a hard time deciding between a size S and a size M frame, I 5'6" and thats right in the middle of the S and M chart. what is better for moab (never been there) a slightly smaller bike or a slightly bigger bike. thanks.

    Either bike will do well. The Nomad is heavier, but it probably means wider tires and stiffer fork, which are both pleasant things to have in Moab. The Bullit will probably be less tiring if you decide (or are forced) to bust out a few 4-5 hour rides.

    Regarding size, it seems like Slightly Small is probably better than Slightly Big if it were my decision.
