I assumed that was his lost car dissection pit.

Looking forward to your comparison with the Nomad. Hope Thredbo is kind to your downtube !
Haha, yeah, I do have a habit of removing cats limbs! Mind you the kitten I’ve got has all limbs attached.....for now.

First day on the SB150, felt good on the jumps, not as smooth on the DH as the Nomad, but that’s comparing a 180mm coil bike to a 150mm air shock. My mate used the DHX2 on his SB150 today, not sure I’m getting it back....

So far so good with the SB150 :) looks nice too...

I read the posts on some forums about the issues some riders are getting which makes me unsure about ownership, but damn that's a good looking bike. A coil must make it sublime to ride.

Heya team,
So small updated. SB150 going good so far, sorta miss the plushness of the Nomad, but maybe some more setup time will fix that. Also just got my coil 36 back on, had to borrow my mates air fork......eewwwwww, air is gross.
SB150 went really good at Thredbo, I’ve never ridden as fast or committed before, not sure if it’s from new bike or just getting better in general.
Had a little misjudgement, that resulted in a fairly significant huck to flat, all good rode it out, got to the bottom, wonder why my water bottle was covered in oil.....cracked the DHX2, and later found a deformed rear rim (not entirely certain that happened at the same time, but wouldn’t surprise me).
Anyway, fox warranted the shock which was awesome and rim cost me $330. But I’ll keep riding on the deformed rim and keep and eye on it, and save the new rim for a proper fuck up.

Also, have a rattle in the frame, going to have to pull it apart and find the source.

No rub so far from the rear wheel, I think I’ve felt a small bit of flex on a couple of occasions, but not 100% sure. Aside from that, this bike feels fast, not sure what it is but it just seems to accelerate out of corners super easy.

A mate had borrowed my DHX2 so it’ll be a few weeks before I get back on. Fork orange doesn’t match the frame orange, might see if I can get a vinyl wrap to match, or maybe just leave it. But def need some better decals then my mate put on....

I see you found the Rockshox Specialized Push 36 Coil Orange Lowers you were looking for.
With free floating brake cable.

Got some custom 36 decals for the forks, really happy with them. Threw a couple of extra yeti stickers on there that came with the frame, they look a bit busy so might take them off later on. I got the 36 decals from....

They look great and I will be using him again, nice to have a local option, 2 thumbs up!

Next thing to do is put the DHX2 on when I get back from my mate, considering a custom black orange paint job on the coil to go full matchy matchy......
And off to Canberra this weekend for the the corc enduro, looking forward to it :)
