So after making a hard decision and moving on from my Yeti I decided to build this Carbon Nomad up to complete my quiver (for now)

I plan to change the cranks out for the new e13 AM when they come out but that's about it

And yes, I need to cut some cables and knock the headset race down, I was just pretty stoked and wanted to take a pic now :0

Real nice Stunz...

It'll be a work in progress but I had the same idea of Black with subtle gold highlights for my Mojo HD.

The devolution looks real weird. I know it won't, but it looks like the steer will snap off.

if you are talking under the bottom headset cup, the race is not completely set yet, need to go to shop to knock it in place since I dont have the tool

HOL-EE crap that is a sweet looking ride. seems almost a shame to get that sucker dirty. LOVE the gold accents and the Kashima coating really ties it together. Sweetest Nomad I've seen so far.....

You don't need a tool for that, just buy a $3 PVC pipe at Home depot and knock it down. I was reluctant to do it myself the first time, but it was a breeze...

Even easier if you buy an end cap for that pipe, flip the fork over, and use the fork like the hammer ;)
