Nomad Carbon C R Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Seeing the popularity of the previous generation Nomad, the engineers at Santa Cruz could have gone the easy route by simply revising the geometry and decking it out with a new paint job. However, if you've ever delved into the storied history of this Northern California bike company, you'd realize they're never content with the easier route taken by much of the industry, preferring to blaze their own trail by purposely designing bikes from the ground up. Embodying Santa Cruz's legacy as innovators in the bike world, the Nomad Carbon C R Complete Mountain Bike sports a complete redesign for 2018 that pushes it further into gravity realms. You'll find its lower-link mounted shock and flip-chip with high/low geometry settings takes inspiration from the downhill-crushing V10, yet like all previous Nomads, it retains the ability to pedal back uphill for one more heart-pumping descent. Looking further into the fourth-gen Nomad's details, you'll be even more impressed with thoughtful additions to the bike's most sensitive regions--mainly with the cleanly integrated shuttle guard, but also with the mud-blocking shock fender and aluminum ear cover that protects the swingarm from dropped chains. 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 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...

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.
