Santacruz Nomad 2, a classic.

$800 GBP
Hello there, hey, do you want to be rad and own one of the best classic 26in bike ever made?! Well look no further! Here we have a stunning 2010 Santacruz Nomad markII in classy white with matching Lyrik forks and everything else black as it should. My personal highlights are Lyrik forks and ust tubeless Mavic Crossmax ST wheels which are lightweight, strong and performed so well throughout the years. Note many of the spokes have been scratched but tbh they were like this when I first got them but they stayed strong throughout time no problem, I loved them, if you don't want them I'd happily keep them. Note it's a 20mm axle. Tires are Maxxis High Roller II exo 2.40 and Continental Rubber Queen 2.40 mounted tubeless but you'll need to top up the sealant as they have been in the garage for a while now. I will include another set as I still have loads of 26 tires spares. The 160mm RS Lyrik forks have the mission control, floodgate settings and freaking u-turn so useful to drop the fork to 115mm on the long climbs or when it doesn’t fit in the boot lol I love that feature. The forks work great I have personally changed the oil several times for best performances. There is one or two small scratches on the stanchion, see pictures. The floodgate setting cannot be adjusted but it can still be turned on or off. The steerer is 1.5in and with the sick Thomson 4x 50mm stem it perfectly complete the oversize headtube for a solid look. Fox DHX air 5.0 on the rear, not much to say about that, works well in open and closed (restricted) position. Oh yes I have changed the bushings to the low friction upgrade Fox made for maximum smoothness. Gears are currently set up with Sram X-9 as 1x 9! I know. But at the time it was the cheapest option to upgrade and it has served me well, never felt the need to change for that extra gear. It has a 40t expander cassette cog. Raceface Ride crankset with a shimano 34T chainring which is pretty hard so let me know if you need something easier Im sure I have a spare 32T. I have fitted the aftermarket derailleur hanger from North shore billet which are machined aluminium and much stronger than the stock cast hanger but you'll get both anyway. Note the DYI chain tensioner, take it off if you're precious about look but this is giving you the best performance to cost ratio you can get, ~10p to replace! Ask me for more info. You'd be sitting on a great Fizik Gobi saddle providing comfort for the long rides, a must have, and controlled by a 120mm reverb which I flushed once, other than that work perfectly. Cockpit is equipped with recent shimano XT M8000 brakes (I kept the original X0 as I prefer the feel) paired to 180mm front and rear discs. Some typical Giant lock-on grips that are suitable for small hands, but I also have various lock-on grips options if you prefer something else, just let me know. All of this mounted on 760mm nukeproof bars that I found of a good size and shape for me, go carbon if you want to save a bit more weight! What else? Ah yes, flat alu pedals because it's rad and fun to ride flats. Frame is Medium size and is from 2010 with the grease ports, I have the official Santacruz grease gun which I will include with grease in it! The reason for sale if it is so awesome? Well I got a deal on a new big wheeler rig and I wanted to keep both which I did for a year now but looking back at how little I actually rode, I cannot justify the two bikes sitting in the garage unfortunately. I'm based in Cambridge so I can ship it in the country, contact me for a quote or feel free to arrange your own courier. Any question or extra photo you would like to see let me know!
