Nomad Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Trail and cross-country bikes may have a time and a place, but it certainly isn't anywhere near the gravity-fueled, rock-gobbling Santa Cruz Nomad Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame. This eager and capable steed is built to plunge head first into the steepest, gnarliest terrain on the mountains, and make quick work of boulder gardens that have other riders questioning their sanity. The Nomad is purposely built to seek out rowdy lines, steep descents, and big park hits that has smaller bikes stepping aside for a quick walk down the trail. This iteration carries on with the same geometry and suspension linkage we fell in love with in 2018, but freshly painted with fresh hues that stand out against the backdrop of park booters and hidden freeride features that litter the PNW. Although 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 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 climbing isn't an issue. Ultimately, its adjustable geometry len...

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.
