 That's really, really nice build. Smile

I wouldn't mind a Nomad for myself.I bet it could handle everything with proper FR/mini DH build.
Have fun on yours. Wink

 Thank you!

It is proven to be a solid frame than can handle some FR and DH, although 160mm rear travel forms a limit. I use it for Enduro.

I had a lot of fun today, so I'm sure that won't be a problem Wink

 Sick build. I'd do a similar build but I'm a big fan of X.0 drivetrains and I'd slap a coil shock out back. Awesome ride though!

 X.0 and a CCDB was my very first thought. I don't know what made me go for XTR, but I'm not complaining at all! Probably the cheap feel of the shifters, as far as I can remember. Plus the brakes, not a big fan of Avid's. Mixing was out of the question since I wanted clean bars (matchmaker / Ispec). Or maybe X.0 in gold and a CCDB were too much gold... I've had many dreams, visions, thoughts before building this pearl and now it's an ultimate, clean, stealthy, black/gold/chrome, AM machine and that's what I was aiming for!

 sick bike man! i just built up an Intense Tracer 2, and i have to say that you need a kashima shock! noticeable difference in small bump sensitivity over my old rp23!! either way awesome ride

 Ok, that makes sense. You can tell him already he's going to have a lot of fun on it. I've just ridden about 170kms (110-120miles) through mud, gravel, sand and some tarmac and it was just perfect. Only issue I had was a nail in the tyre, but we all know (and if you don't, get some!) Stan's NoTubes tyre sealant is indisputable.

 Ya know what's kinda weird is that my Nomad C was just about the same weight with a dropper post, but with aluminum wheels, heavier cranks, a bash guard, and DH brakes.

 I can try and explain that: Altitude? Different Scale? Decimals?

 lmao, perhaps am I one of the few who don't care about weight THAT much, and actually don't lie about it :p
  • 1 2
 I never lie about weight. I'm just confused why your bike weighs as much as mine did with clearly heavier parts.

 Frame
Frame (including shock) = 6.06lbs / 2.75kg
Fork = 4.75lbs / 2.11kg
Headset = 0.32lbs / 0.15kg

Cockpit
Stem = 0.32lbs / 0.15kg
Handlebar = 0.37lbs / 0.17kg
Seatpost = 1.17lbs / 0.54kg
Saddle = 0.51lbs / 0.23kg
Pedals = 0.79lbs / 0.36kg
Grips = 0.35lbs / 0.16kg

Wheels
Wheels = 3.20lbs / 1.45kg
Tires = 3.60lbs / 1.62kg

Drivetrain
Chainguide = 0.15lbs / 0.06kg
Crankset = 1.50lbs/ 0.67kg
Cassette = 0.55lbs / 0.25kg
Derailleurs = 0.69lbs / 0.31kg
Shifters = 0.48lbs / 0.22kg
Chain = 0.50lbs / 0.26kg
Brakes = 1.71lbs / 0.78kg

TOTAL WEIGHT ACCORDING TO MANUFACTURERS = 27,02 lbs / 12.24kg
(That is without grease / tyre sealant / chainstay protector / frame patches)

Weight Weenies unfortunately doesn’t list a lot of my components, but as we all know: these claimed weights are mostly not to be trusted a 100pct. Is 1lb / 450gr so wrong? I don’t think so. Not if you keep in mind that those liquids and protection can weigh 1/3 of that easily. 0.6lbs or 0.3kg isn't much to be mistaken.

I’m sticking with 12.7kg, not unhappy at all!

 Ok so my tires, pedals, stem, and handlebar are all lighter than yours. That should make up the couple hundred gram difference in my wheels, cranks, and fork.
  • 1 0
 That sounds reasonable! Smile

It is actually your nomad that made me go for a carbon one instead of the alloy version. I wanted to combine it with gold as you did, but then I found the chrome bits a little more appealing to me.

 Yours looks really nice with the XTR. Perhaps a 2012 XTR with the flip switch is in your future? Wink That little gold accent may be what your bike needs.

 I'm not sure... That feature is all cool, and it works (knowing Shimano...) but I don't need it yet. Perhaps I'll upgrade, if I have some spare cash. The derailleur is tight enough for rough terrain, yet I can remove and install the wheel without to much effort.

 12.7kg or 28.22lbs

 light! your carbon wheelset certanily did its job in weight Smile
  • 1 0
 What I get a lot is people asking how is it possible that my bike weighs that much with all those light components... I have no answer to that; bike is here, this is the actual weight. The dropper post and the guide on the 2 x 10 setup is not what everybody uses. But for those who consider that, I guess the weight is awesome.

 1 pound is 453.6 grams according to Wolfram Alpha. Which is ~~ 1.3 × mass of a full 12-ounce aluminum soda can (including the can and soda) (~~ 355 g )

 right....forget about the mass of a soda can, though...TMI
