    Default 2018 Santa Cruz Nomad

    Word has it full details released today. But a picture has already leaked. Certainly not an initial fan of the look, but maybe it'll grow on me. Colour is meh.

    Seems to becoming more and more a requirement from enduro racing.

    New sick placement should get the weight even lower.

    Details today or details 1-6 American time?

    Default Much Fuglier

    Mini V10; but Fuglier

    No doubt it will work nicely; but it looks like the whole range is getting more 'duro (and this thing has gone FR! With a Coil shock!)

    The old one had a water bottle mount, however with this one you could no doubt fit a full size bottle whilst only a small one in the previous Nomad.

    Looks kinda dull, and being a Santa Cruz will no doubt be ridiculously overpriced.
    Some people are like Slinkies. They serve no useful purpose, but they're fun to push down the stairs.

    Strange looking bike, something is a bit odd about the lines. Reminds of a mish mash of older bikes and kona paint from mid 2000s.

    Lower CG of shock placement great, but prob offset by being coil and what appears like front triangle sitting higher? Dunno.

    Could be my eyes, but is that a post mount on the rear triangle? If so it only took them a decade, and if not, still holding out!
    Be careful with that, it was new once.

    I actually quite like that.

    Which is easy to say, because I'll never have that much to spend on a bike.

    Looks great. Certainly different to previous iterations. Unfortunately I'm no doctor or dentist...
