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
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).
