You would be surprised how good it looks built up. I have a white one with the 1.5, my friend has a white with a 1 1/8", side by side mine looks better :thumbsup:DaCruz said:Help me out:
2008 models of the nomad have a 1.5 headtube.. but why???
- It's ugly..
- For all mountain/trailriding you don't need 1.5 if you ask me.
- I just don't get it...
Chris King are almost there........... I have had a good run thus far with my FSA 1.5 Head set though...xtremesportscar said:1.5" tube can work out for some, especially if you need the extra cleareance for the right fork. and its not too big a deal to slap in a headset with a 1 1/8 headset spacer. Although I dont think Chris King makes a 1.5", and that makes me sad
Hmmm, this Honda CRF 250 headtube looks just a bit bigger then 1" ??LSDancer said:Do know that motocross bikes have 1" headtube..!? // no comment.. and 1.5" looks ugly d:
If you are running a single crown, you will most likely have to use the standard bottom like I have, then use a flush for the top. I was in a hurry & installed the lower flush cup only to find my fork would hit the down tube pretty bad when turnedtuumbaq said:For me Its all about having lowest stack as possible.Im on a 07 right now and selling it to get the new one.I personally find the front end quite tall when I run the fork at its highest setting and I end up reducing the travel to make the bike handle better
At your old stomping grounds I ride with more Nomads than any other bike, just last weekend I saw the first 1.5 though. Way nicer looking then those scrawny little 1 1/8's.inkpad said:You would be surprised how good it looks built up.

It looks cool, and allows the use of internal bearings on the bottom to cut front end height, but precludes running 1.5 steerer forks. That's a bad tradeoff IMHO.bighitboy said:the new thing specialized has with the 1.5 bottom and 1 1/8 top is sweet. i like a very much (borat)
