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.
I will echo your sentiments. I'm in your weight zipcode and am extremely impressed with how stiff the RFX is. I cannot seem to get the rear end to flex at all under my 250#. Handling is super, the RFX does well in the corners, and is an easy bike to get your weight back on when pointed downhill. It loves to go fast.ImaKlyde said:I'm a bigger guy (6'3" @ 250-260) and the Nomad's rear end wasn't as stiff as I'd want. The RFX is fine. It can be thrown into corners and just rail. I've had it built up from 31 pounds (and a little bit) to 36 pounds for shuttle days. It's taken everything I've thrown at it so far.
Funny and ironic at the same time; I like that. :thumbsup:toHELLuRIDE said:Then isn't a Turner TNT just a Kona w/bushings?
