    Default Transition Patrol Carbon (Nomad Edition)

    Sold the Nomad frame and put all the parts over.

    Frame- Large with custom decals.
    Fork- Pike 160
    Shock- Tossing up between Float X2 or DHX2 with 350 spring (will write up my thoughts on the two later on)
    Bottom Bracket- Sram
    Rims- Light Bicycle 38mm hookless with 12k weave matte finish (found a crack in the front, and cracked a couple of rears)
    Hubs- DT Swiss 350 straight pull, rear with XD driver
    Spokes- Sapim cx-ray
    Brakes- Saint M820, will be giving some Hope V4's a go shortly.
    Rotors- 203mm front & rear, centerlock ice tech
    Cranks- Sram X01, 170mm
    Chain guide- Shovel Carbon
    Cassette- Sram X1
    Rear derailler- Sram XO1
    Shifter- Sram XX1 with Problem solver adapter to fit Shimano Saint lever.
    Chain- KMC 11SL Black
    Headset- Canecreek
    Stem- Enve 40mm
    Handlebars- Enve 800mm DH
    Seat post- KS 150
    Seat- Bel Air
    Grips- ODI
    Tires- XC/Trail riding DHR 2.3 and Minion SS 2.3, for gravity riding DHR 2.5WT and HRII.
    Pedals- Xpedo Spry Flats w/ grub screws
    Weight- No idea

    Only had it on a couple of rides, still trying to get the shock dialed. Will do an update and Nomad comparison soon. Did some custom cable routing as I'm not a fan of the brake cable coming out the same side as the lever.

    Future Mods: Long shock attempt, and hope four pot brakes in purple :)

    To scroll down and see a bike so bright was a big surprise but good on you for being different. Good to see someone going with the LB rims also. (shame about the crack)

    Thanks :)
    Loved the Noamd colours and thought what the hell, they are only stickers, if it proves too ghey I can pull em off.

    I copied and pasted the specs over (as they were all the same), I've since cracked 2 rims, I love the LB wheels, great for trail riding, but if I was living near a track with a rock gardens I'd prob run alloy rims. First rear crack was user dumbness, second one a clipped a rock at Stromlo, wouldn't of thought it would of cracked but it did. Need to pay more attention to tire pressure when rocks are around me thinks.

    Reminds me of this:

    Some people are like Slinkies. They serve no useful purpose, but they're fun to push down the stairs.
