Fatty Fat for plowing and hucking, 26" v10 for all out speed.

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).

Ah, that makes sense. That’s kind of like my Uzzi compared to my M9.

Exactly, I like more of a playful, nimble, freeride feel, as opposed to all out speed demon race bike. In order to truly enjoy the v10, you really need to push it hard and fast. Those days of charging hard and pushing the bike are long gone for me. Plus I like the versatility and lighter weight of an enduro/park bike. Modern enduro bikes are more than enough for my (lack of) speed and skill.
