Anyone has the chance to try a Pole Evolink or Machine?

Thinking of making the switch from N3 to Evolink 158, but mindful of the big difference in length and weight. The Pole is about 3" longer and 1kg heavier for the frame.

Sacred ride top cap.

I'm curious if anyone else is running their N4 with a short stem and if they had tried various stack heights. I'm 5'9 with a large N4, 33mm Renthal stem and have been running 20mm in spacers underneath with the standard SC 35mm clamp handlebar. I'm wondering if I'm missing a trick with my setup as the bike seems low at the front, although with it being quite a long bike for my height I need to keep the front weighted. Also on a 170mm fork. Any advice / previous experiences would be great.
Thanks.

Hi guys, I’m currently running a fox DHX2 on my nomad 4 with a 475 spring and I’m thinking about switching it out to a fox float x2. Anyone ran both and have an opinion on how the bike runs with the air shock compared to coil. Thanks

When I bought my Nomad 4 it came with the RS coil. I rode it for a year, and was never happy with it. It felt dead and if I ran the rebound fast enough to be lively, it was too fast for bigger hits.

Then I got a DVO Topaz air. It was a massive improvement. DVO didn't have a metric coil at the time. I had not had an air shock in nearly a decade as I've always preferred coil from way back when I put one on my Blur 4X and every bike since including all the Nomad versions.

Recently DVO Jade coil became available in metric, so I put that on. As much as the Topaz was hard to fault, my bias to coil over the years made me want to try the coil. It now feels even more lively and responsive. I will not be going back to air.
