#!markdown Pete, great review. Although I'm not sure I agree with some of the comments about the Nomad's climbing ability. I think it's really, really good. Better than some of the 140/150mm bikes I've ridden. I've been blown away at this bike's versatility. It is certainly an All-of-the-Mountain bike. I rode a quick XC ride in Whislter (Kill Me Thrill Me) and then went to the park for a few laps. There's not too many bikes out there that would be happy doing both on the same day with the same set up. I have also really enjoyed the RockShox Monarch on the rear. When I bought the bike, I figured I'd ride it for a couple weeks, then buy a Cane Creek. But the shock was (is) awesome! I got it rebuilt at Fluid Function this summer and Sean added a bottomless token (or the equivalent for the rear shock). I now run 187 psi vs 202 psi before. The shock climbs a little worse, but has way, way better small bump and is still good on the big stuff. Anyway, awesome bike. The only downside I can think of is the super, crazy, high price. Mike
