It's probably just an iPad Mini collecting data for the big S engineers.

The facial expression in the second riding photo is just epic.

the high bb thing almost makes one wonder if the bike was originally designed to be a 130/140mm bike, then marketing got involved and said "we must have a long travel carbon enduro bike! i know, let's just put a longer shock in there."

then all the engineers secretly shook their heads...more

Love the bike reviews, but I am currently on the HR2s and have mixed feelings about them. Be great to see a test sessions like approach on tires for bikes similar to those tested here.

Bturman is correct. I did have a Nomad that I bought, and rode for months. I sold it because I preferred something else. The ability to give high praise for a bike that wasn't exactly what I wanted should reinforce the idea of unbiased reviews. Star rating aside, there are certainly some pronounced negatives about the bike in the words written above. Just like the good rating for the Canfield despite its faults, the Nomad gets a good rating based on how it will work for many people, not all.

"the ideal rear suspension feel was never achieved"

I think that's why it wasn't rated that highly. Pretty important for a full suspension bike.

The welds and chain slap were just a tiny part of the review. The suspension was the main part. On a full suspension bike, if the rear suspension isn't able to work really well, on a variety of terrain, on a $6000 bike, then it is not good. Seems pretty simple to me.

Kind of ironic coming from a guy who criticized another poster in the 2013 Test Sessions Knolly Chilcotin review by saying "let's not get butt hurt because the review isn't exactly the same as how you feel about the bike."

Yet again people are taking the mountain biking out of slalom. I hope it is not all smooth as glass. Rotorua has incredible dirt and grass. Missing out on a few of those corners would be a travesty.
