I am in the market for a new bike. I am stuck between the Nomad and the RFX. Both are great bikes. Looking for any info that could sway me.
Yeah, I had the 2005, which I think was at the height of it's burliness? That thing was a tank.FoShizzle said:to be clear, the new new RFX is yet another beast. The 2008 RFX was girlied down as compared to my 2006 but the next new RFX will be back to being burly...so yeah, its confusing
I've owned/own both: '07 Nomad and an '08 RFX currently.lou_b_83 said:I am in the market for a new bike. I am stuck between the Nomad and the RFX. Both are great bikes. Looking for any info that could sway me.
Seems there's a lot of mention about flex in the rear of the Nomad. I can't say I ever noticed any flex on either bike.Loll said:
I did see those earlier, but it's not worth it to bash another's product without actually having tried it. I think for those of us who have had to deal with SC's Customer service, I can say it's great. From Scott, Willie, & Danny, all threes guys that I have had to talk to about stuff, they've been super responsive.Loll said:
Well, you have to take it with a grain of salt. There are actually two threads (in one) going on there: On thread that actually addresses the original question, and another thread of "hey, you should ride some other bike blah blah blah."Loll said:
That opinion was common when the bike was in the design stage. Funny how no one brings it up now . . .FoShizzle said:The 2008 RFX was girlied down as compared to my 2006 . . .
i agree...their hurtful words and pontification about what they do not know for certain are uncalled for. I would also always base my opinion on e-responses obtained from opposing forums for the same question. I would simply take the hurtful homer responses out of the math and whichever forum provided the most responses should dictate which bike you get.Loll said:
Apperantly you haven't met Mark Weir.OhSchitt said:I've just got to reiterate that of all the SC owners that I've met, most are more than willing to critique their own bikes and will not say that their bike is best (only because they own one), but rather you'll get a variety of answers of why they like or dislike their bikes.
That's his problem, he doesn't ride.TNC said:Obama rides a Turner?:lol:
I own a 2005 and it's not nearly as much of a tank as the 2002. ;~) Talk about burliness...scruffylooking said:Yeah, I had the 2005, which I think was at the height of it's burliness? That thing was a tank.
