Nomad Carbon R Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Santa Cruz Nomad has always catered to the aggressive rider who seeks every opportunity to get airborne and charge downhill at face-melting rates of speed, as well as those who prefer technical lines to dumbed-down options.

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 head tube of 64. 6 degrees purely aimed on downhill laps at the resort and shuttle runs up the pass where climbing isn't an issue. Ultimately, its adjustable geometry lends the ability to pus...

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.
