Nomad Carbon S Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Never a bike to shy away from ridiculously steep, downright sketchy lines that would have you questioning your sanity on a less aggressive machine, the Nomad is the closest thing you'll get to a true freeride bike in Santa Cruz's line with its long, slacked-out design and lower link-driven VPP suspension borrowed from the downhill-crushing V10.

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 is less of an issue. Ultimately, its adjustable geometry lends the ability to push the bike to the absolute limit on lift-accessed days or retain more balance for earning y...

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.
