I am more interest in a price break down Eek


Absolutely amazing build. And that thing could be even lighter if you really wanted.

I will not share the exact price I paid, but I can tell you that I have a normal job (nothing fancy, nothing underpaid either) and I worked 8 months while paying my bills and going out in weekends, doing stuff, buying presents for my friends.. to afford this baby.

I ordered at Singletrack Bike Parts, Jenson USA, Chainreaction Cycles and Bike-components. I had to do this for stock reasons, but also product availability and pricing.

I could have gone lighter, yes. I didn't because this bike is lighter than my previous bike (Specialized Enduro SL 2007) and is a lot stiffer, the suspension is much much better, the shifting couldn't be better and it accelerates much faster. I think all those advantages, in addition to some weight saving (0.8kg / 1.7 lbs) are more than enough for me to justify the hours I worked for it. I could leave the dropper post to gain some weight, but it is very usefull for my riding style since I like to climb and also go downhill. If weight was my concern, I shouldn't have bought a Nomad in the first place. A Scott Genius would have done the job then.

The Nomad is an all time favorite of mine. I was obsessed with it when it was introduced. I cant imagine how nice that must ride. Those wheels are what really grabbed my attention. With hoops that light, it must accelerate like a bat outta hell.

Glad to see we feel the same about the Nomad Wink . The wheels help a lot! That is not good for training, but I guess I'll just have to give it a 110% instead hehe Big Grin

Not something I need to remember but tobe honest it wasn't as bad I thought - all parts from CR and a few specifics out of the US. Got the frame at Santa Cruz list price which I was happy with being in Australia.

Have built all year so the pain hasn't been too bad!

COst me about 75% of what my Nomad 1 with XTR cost me in 2006!
