    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
