I'm looking to order an 09 Nomad. I have noticed on a few threads some of you have 09's now. According to the size chart on the Santa Cruz website I fall in a large frame. I'm 5'11" what are your thoughts? There are none in my area to to look at presently.
Thanks.

I have a med nomad and I am 5/11. It needs a min 70mm stem, 50mm just feels a touch short (up to 90 is good for trails), but I prefer my bike on the small side. I rode a large with a 50mm stem and decided on the medium.

I received my Nomad on Oct. 08 and like the Large. I am 5'11" and use a 45mm stem (1.5), but will swap it out to 70 once they become available from Thomson. Its a little cramp (mostly because I came from using a 90mm stem on a Intense 5.5) with the 45, but no front wheel flop on the steepest climbs and chutes are great with the stubby stem.
