I don't generally get to review many bikes because I am busy taking pictures of them but I had the Nomad for a week this summer while Pete was finalizing the Altitude review. I have to say that I was quite smitten with the MK4 from the start. I would agree that it doesn't climb as well as other bikes we had in the NSMB stable this year but it for my slow-diesel climbing style it suited me just fine. I don't have much to add to Pete's review of its downhill prowess but after every single ride I got to the bottom and stared at the bike with lust and found any number of reasons to keep her an extra day longer. I'm not saying that I was responsible for this long-term review being a little stretched but I had to reminded numerous times that Pete needed to get some time on it for his review. If I wasn't keen to try a 29r for an extended period this bike would be on my shortlist for 2018.
So aggressive in your old age.
Everyone has cameras on their list. Writing is on the wall for Cousin Dave.
Update: I won a $50MEC gift certificate which resulted in the very same YETI mug I asked for in my list and yes, I promptly filled said mug with beer. Thanks Santa!
re: item 1 on this list. This is a gift for me as well - i should really add it to my list.
It's all about those Roach pants.
blurry foreground object status awarded.
again. i couldn't find a picture at large enough resolution so i went with one that was big enough.
i couldn't find one of the 29r in a decent resolution! it is pretty though!
Performance and bling factor aside, there's an interesting discussion to be had here on being able to buy a bike with a clearer conscience by going aluminum over harder to recycle carbon.
Amazed. Simply amazed. Thanks, Dave.
Rest assured this was only a prop
I'd personally call this a Seymour shuttle solution. Its amazing what some people will do to avoid pedalling, including seeing past their own personal space issues.
