She's pretty and she's fast. Buy her!

I gotta try the nomad. Riding in them rough made me miss the longer, more agressive feel. I do miss the enduro on the descent, but I LOVE the pedaling of the VPP.

Now that Angelfire season is upon us, I am thinking a "do it all" sounds like a worthy experiment before comitting to a two MTN bike stable again.

If the nomad leaves me wanting, nest year I'll go Bronson + V10.

The Bronson is so fast it's stupid, but I need so burly and slack it's stupid.

I'll go less than that PB ad to the right buyer, or part out the frame, if the price is right.

What's the rear wheel spacing? Dude, you need to demo the Enduro top shelf build. I am telling you, you can shred long climbs and destroy a bike park in one bike. I use it anything that isn't a dh race course. There is no comparison between your old(my old) endure and the new ones. They upped the climbing prowess on the newer version and kept them just as shreddable. have you demoed a new endure yet?

Wink

Y'all want some burn cream?

No, it's not personal. I like Speshie. But our team is affiliated with SC, so I gotta start there. That's all.

Let me know if you wanna sell those hoops. Why don't you just get a frame and build it up with all the sick parts you have?

I am thinking bout building up from the frame, but I would need to get a new dropper and ideally the M70s to complement the new bike.

I listed the frame on PB with the reverb for $2700 shipped. If someone made the right offer on the Enve M60 wheels I would entertain selling them.

Shoot me a text. If I can part it out and meet my bottom line I'll do it.

I have the drivetrain sold already, so really the wheels are the next big part.

I dropped the price on PB a little. For a TMTBer I would go even L O W E R.

I think you lost more on that bike than I did on my Corvette! At least I got to keep her for a year....

Bronson now has a new XX1 drivetrain (installed 5/23), new tires F/R, fresh bleed and pads, fresh rebuild on the dropper, and the Pike is DSD tuned and rebuilt as of early May.

It's ready to rumble and listed locally at $6,300.

Nomad is RAD!!!

I had one ride on a blingtastic Enve/XTR Bronson and hated it. We never got along.

I've only got 4 rides on the Nomad but three of those were at Moab on Porcupine Rim, Mag 7 to Portal, and Captain Ahab. I expected it to descend like a mini DH bike and take every drop like a champ (it does), but what surprised me is just how damn well it climbed. It's freaking amazing how well it climbs. Better than the Norco Sight or Ibis Mojo HD I had. It just sticks to everything. While it is a wee bit heavier and will never be confused for an XC rocket the pedaling efficiency is there in spades. The stability at speed is to be expected, but it actually feels incredibly stable at LOW speed tech too. Damn thing just rules!

Indeed. They really made a super sweet bike with that Nomad.
