I will keep an eye out for the long spindle version - that would do it for me to switch (back) to CB.

Offering my opinion on your default qf: "better clearance in tight trail" makes exactly zero sense to me as a higher design priority than being able to clip out your rear foot with level pedals.

Any comments on durability from someone who's run them for a season?

On the old mallets I remember the q-factor causing me to fall over a few times because my toe hits the crank arm as my foot tries to pivot out. Only when pedals are level is it a problem (the stance we all use 90% of the time)

I have 2 sets. No problems with either. In contrast, my buddy has gone through 3 of their rims so far. We both agree the performance is awesome. As for square tires, we both think the width takes a Hans Dampf to the next level.

CB really needs to stop blaming customers for these wear issues.

2010 Nomad

Rating:

The Good: Proven design - really does pedal well without giving up too much small bump sensitivity. Weight (7.5 lb frame w/Fox DHX Air, Size L). Great looking frame and easy access to the shock.

The Bad: Flex - why no 12mm rear option? Also would like a steeper seat tube. -1 star

Overall: Build is 32lbs with still capable parts. Fox 36 Float and DHX air rear well balanced. I can see myself riding this frame for years as a fun, capable trail bike. Build recommendations: I put a zero stack headset, a short stem, and a flat bar to bring the front end down and really like the cockpit feel. For sizing, I usually choose a meduim frame for DH steeds, but the Large Nomad fits short so was spot on for me (6' tall).
