    I changed a few things. Enve wheels with DT Swiss 240s, Shimano Xtr brakes. 170 mm XTR cranks, Fox CTD rear shock. Shimano shadow derailer. Race face 1 x up front. Criss king bottom bracket and front cassette . Reverb dropper seat post.

    Pros
    Very nimble. Handles whatever you throw at it. Made me a better rider. Gets me out of bad situations

    Cons
    None

    Great bike. I was glad to purchase this bike. It can accommodate a dropper post if I desire and has the cable attachment points for it as well. Pick up the SPX model and you will be happy. Great parts and good value.

    Pros
    Lightweight, plush suspension, Tracks well, jumps well, climbs well....You get the idea

    Cons
    None

    If you are looking for a bike that kicks ass in more arenas, that will take you to more greatness, this will fit the bill (plus, it's just plain sexy). I give huge props to the Mojo HD and Remedy 9 as well. Sometimes history and aesthetic make the final difference.

    Pros
    Everything. Flick a lever, turn a dial and say hello to Sybil - climbs better than my RM ETSX-70 (which changed my life and I love) and has more descending confidence and prowess than I'll ever tap. It's stiff and tight on the climbs; accurate and terrain gobbling on descents. (It's not a plush downhill rig, though you could do some freeriding with the right set up. I went with the RP-23 and TALAS, both of which help the versatility at the expense of a little plushness, but I live in the Rockies with long, punishing climbs to get those sweet descents and it's the purest marriage I can imagine.) To top it off, I've always liked the Nomad because it created a niche and it's lines make me weep. It's the sweetest machine I've ever sat on, and I can't wait for tomorrow.

    Cons
    Nothing. It's not cheap - and I hate cliches - but you get what you pay for. And from that perspective, it's a downright bargain, and a dam good value.
