You were the reason for going with the dark side. I remember seeing them and liking them.

I miss my Session with the high pivot & 10 inches of travel back in the day i trimmed it down to a 36,3 lbs build with DH tires, if i went for tubeless,carbon cranks,carbon wheelset & air shock this bike would be somewhere around 33,7 lbs.

My other metal DH bike i also owned

My Session again with WECB Marzocchi forks

Nice! I think the 15 V10 also looks the best out of the bunch.

Yes, definitely a looker! Didn't quite get along with it though. It was a fast, race bike thoroughbred, thru and thru, and felt great at speed. But at slower technical DH trails, it felt too long. I like more of a park bike/freeride feel, not so much a race oriented bike (I'm slow and very conservative).

My 2020 Nomad handles all my bike park duties nowadays, light and nimble, and just the right amount of travel (for me).
