Any pictures of the damage?

I also appreciate seeing the same bike being used throughout so many tests! I take it as an effort to reduce another variable. Either that or lots of love for the Capra!

Way to tell it like it is vital. Your honesty makes the 5-star reviews that much more meaningful.

I love the snappiness of carbon rims but until i am making 150k a year, I cannot possibly justify it.

Did you have to do any trickery to make the Zee der play nicely with the cassette?

I assure you that the gents testing this concept (Transition, FOX, RockShox, Chris Porter, etc) know exactly what's up. I'd like to think I do as well, having been at this testing game for several years. The back-to-back process typically reveals all.

On a follow up article, how about some simple If/Then tips? Ex If you keep getting bucked on the same jump, then try increasing rebound compression on the shock/decreasing compression on the fork?

Totally agree about the tire choice. But the new nomad has to be ridden to be appreciated for what it is. Definitely function over fashion for the new one.

The only part in question is the Ardent as a front tire. After seeing this though absolutely no desire for the new Nomad. Rad work!

Is it just me or did they just throw on a 29er 40 and put his rear wheel in the longer chainstay setting and call it a 29er DH bike? Also, remote lock out X2? Take my money now.

It's certainly something to consider. The average leverage ratio is 2.75, which is a tad higher than the norm. That said, Pivot does offer the Float X2 for those wanting the best performance on long descents and added damping control. I didn't notice a need for excessive...more

Brandon, have you read teamrobot's article on short shock lengths? That's one of the only potential downsides. Do you see this as an issue?
