Nomad S Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
We've been spoiled by the ever-evolving capabilities of suspension designs, and the proliferation of pedal-able party bikes has gotten us to the point where we want to have our climbing cake and shred it on the DH side, too. That may sound like a lot to ask, but Santa Cruz Bicycles has pushed the new Nomad even further off the DH cliff while maintaining a pedaling platform that doesn't hamstring you on the climbs. The Nomad S Complete Mountain Bike feels like a DH tank when you drop in, but it's just as happy to detour into the sidecountry for a little brow-sweat R&R. Whether you live the lift life or prefer to earn your laps, the latest Nomad's blend of trail pedaling and DH aggression--combined with the impressive gear range of SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain--lets it straddle the line between what goes up and what comes down. Although the previous generation Nomad was aimed squarely at enduro domination, the newest generation is less of a dedicated race bike and more of a gravity rig that you can actually pedal uphill without struggling like other long-travel sleds. Think of it as a freeride bike for riders seeking one that's versatile enough to lap the resort park and shuttle downhill laps, then pedal along backcountry epics the very next day. The 65-degree head tube angle (in high setting) and longer reach keep things calm and comfortable on wicked descents, yet the steeper 75-degree seat tube angle puts you in an optimal pedaling position without struggling to shift your weight forward on steep climbs. The flip-chip integrated into the swingarm provides the ability to fine-tune its geometry to your exact riding preferences and local terrain. Keep it in the high setting for a more efficient pedaling platform on rides with a mix of blistering descents and steep climbs. Conversely, you can switch it to the low setting for an even slacker geometry (head tube of 64. 6 degrees) that's purely aimed on downhill laps at the resort and shuttle runs up the pass where c...

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
