#!markdown If Comfortably Numb is the type of trail you ride frequently, I would agree and say something smaller would suit you fine - in the case of SC, Bronson, or to be frank, even 5010 should be plenty if you're a Whistler local who rides a lot and is comfortable in the tech stuff. When I wrote that the Nomad climbs well, the disclaimer is "for a bike in its class". It doesn't climb like a XC bike. That said I wouldn't hesitate to take the Nomad to Uncomfortable Bum anytime, although you'd be more likely to find me pedaling up to Gargamel or somewhere on the Flank, since those trails are more the type I'd want to ride, and where the Nomad and bikes of its ilk will shine.
