Has anyone out there had the opportunity to try these two out? How do they compare? If you can believe what you read, the Nomad seems to be quite the ride.

Got em' both

Time on Nomad is limited, but I can say that the X5 (I have 2, one setup w/5" of travel and one with 6") tracks better IMO. The VPP sits deeper in it's sag and while it's a nice ride, it's not the same as the X5. I'll post more when I have the chance to really test the Nomad.

Hello PattD, just a curious thought, being that the Nomad is labeled an all mountain bike that should take some small drops, and jumps well, would you take the 5" X5 over the same type of trails? The other would be, can the X5 take some abuse like your La Bruja does?

Thanks, (I have been looking hard at the Nomads too)
