Nomad AL Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Completely overhauled from the previous generation, the Santa Cruz Nomad Aluminum Mountain Bike Frame moves further into the gravity spectrum with its lower-link mounted air shock and adjustable flip-chip with high/low geometry settings. Frankly, we were blown away upon first glance of the fourth-gen Nomad with its V10-inspired chassis mated to an elongated wheelbase and super-slack geometry that screams of downhill aggression. After a few minutes of further inspection, we were even more impressed with thoughtful details protecting the bike's sensitive regions--mainly with the cleanly integrated downtube and chainstay protectors, but also with the shock fender that keeps out flinging mud and errant trail debris. Seeing the previous generation Nomad aimed squarely at enduro domination, the newest generation is less of a dedicated race bike and more of a gravity/freeride rig that you can actually pedal uphill without struggling like other long-travel sleds.

The 65-degree head tube angle (high geometry 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, so you're never struggling to shift your weight forward on climbs. The flip-chip integrated into the swingarm gives you 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 position or switch it to the low setting for even slacker head tube angle of 64. 6 degrees that's purely focused on gravity disciplines. Ultimately, its adjustable geometry lends the ability to push the bike to the absolute limit on downhills or retain more balance for earning your turns across large swaths of alpine terrain. Moving to the revised shock placement, ...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
