Put him on a 26" rigid single speed for a day? Must've just forgotten what it means to ride a bike, you know, having fun and all. Everyone in the world of bikes must ride/buy what he says, otherwise I guess we're all doing it wrong. Wonder why the marketing dept of a large company hasn't picked him up yet, with all of his valuable insight.

Some people like to 'play' when they ride MTB. 27.5" is more responsive to rider input and changes in direction/acceleration/braking. Speed isn't everything, sometimes its more about the sensation with the bike. Wheels/tires/frames/forks are always lighter, don't need carbon rims to keep things feeling tight, easier to pump/generate speed using terrain vs maintaining momentum on 29". I'd say its a more engaging process, and for some riders that feels more rewarding. Why would you care if someone doesn't want to ride the same wheel size as you?

@lickmycrinkle This dude is a joke on the forums in our local community, now he just takes all the embarrassment to an international level. It's really funny to see him write about speed and product management, while 1. he couldn't properly ride if his life depended on this, not to mention speed 2. the ”product management” he does actually refers to some Walmart-type bicycles that happen to be some of the worst of their kind. He's also on a personal crusade against the new-look Nomad since it was launched and believes the ”knows” what Santa Cruz ”should've done”. It's also comical and contradictory that he uses references to Trump all over the place, while he actually is a local cycling Trump, but minus the public support. Oh, the irony to say something like that when back home everybody laughs when they hear of you. Don't give him too much attention; I guess he feeds on that. It's like when you poke a bear, get a huge ”get lost” paw across the face and then whine that the bear isn't ”a good guy” like he's supposed to be.

Or just like not be a dick who keeps harping ideas they know are unpopular. But I guess you know better than everyone else.

Our choice to grab a 27.5-inch version took into account a number of elements that do not merit defense in this context. I will assure you, it has nothing to do with the existence of the Santa Cruz Nomad.

I tested the Nomad (medium)
The Giga (large) is being tested by someone else, in another state as part of a larger project.

Let us all please keep these comments civil and in context. This is just a bicycle, after all.
