I'll be the first to admit I don't really care how a bike pedals up hills. That said, I think this thing pedals quite capably. I will say, that my flat pedals combined with the low BB ensure I am a bit pickier when climbing tech stuff. Climbing rocky notches and that have become a thinking man's game for me now (not my strong suit). Whatever shortcomings it may have in that regard are quickly forgotten once the bike points down the track. It's simply amazingly fun to ride.

I was lucky enough to get one of the early new Nomads and I can tell you that with a 160mm Pike and Minion DHF exo 2.35 tires, the head angle measure out to 66. I'm assuming 65 is measurement for a 180mm fork.

Although I did stiffen up my suspension for this track, in retrospect, I might have gone even a little stiffer. Don't think it would have helped with my confidence though, just with skipping across the bumps.

Look closely, y'all. Elixir 9 up top and Code caliper at the bottom. Popular, effective combo for those who can't get on with the shortish Code lever.
