Dry steeps from the other week, anyone else think the nomad is awkward in the steep corners?

I thought my large was so bought a medium, much better now.

Always wanted to try and build a bike so I found a good deal on a Bronson frame and built it piece by piece over the winter. Pretty stoked on how it turned out! Huge learning experience!


That thing looks sick! Where did you buy that top tube protector with "Bronson" printed on it?

The range is fantastic. So far I would say the shifting is not as solid as the SRAM X1 I had on my old bike (2016 Giant reign 1). The shifter feel is lighter. The shifts are reliable and smooth but don't quite have that reassuringly solid clunky feel of SRAM. Still bedding in, only been on one proper ride so far, so will see with time. Overall it feels pretty good I'd say. You can shift 4+ gears easily and it will just rattle through them without complaint.

The XT 4 pot brakes are excellent, stacks of power, better modulation than my previous Saints.

Also new Hightower that honestly looks pretty awesome. Will be considering for my next bike as I don't think I can justify a Megatower.

They still have yet to come up with a colorway that competes with the OG V3 Nomad. That's literally the #1 reason I haven't switched bikes yet.

I agree, the Industry Blue Bronson is a cool colour too, but thats by far my favourite!

had a black n3, then got hooked on a blue bronson v3. sadly, as it is kinda impossible to get in alu. so after 6 month of waiting i just cancelled the order on the blue, and got a grey in a week. got to say, in person the color is way better than on the photos. and i kinda like the new ht too.
