Well, I've received a lot of e-mail recently in regards to what happened to the Nomad that I built this past winter. Unforuntately, the bike had a few items on it that weren't allowed to be photographed until now, so I figured I'd post it up.

The biggest change of course was going from the Boxxer Ride to a Lyrik U-Turn coil. Another big change was going from the 6.1 DT rims to the MUCH lighter 5.1's with a set of 2.4" Schwalbe Big Betty's attached.

The reviews of this bike have always been positive and mine are no different. Here in Northern Colorado we have some fast big hit terrain where this bike shines. Climbing has been outstanding and anything mid-speed or higher is rewarded with a confidence inspiring level of ease not normally found on trail bikes.

Sooooooo.....I'll be doing a few updates to the bike over the next month so I'll be sure to post the photos and info.

Darren

How do you like the 5.1 over the 6.1rims? Faster acceleration, easier on the climbs.. but how about on the descent and on drops?
