Review: 2023 Santa Cruz Nomad - Yes, It's Very Good
This will be buried in comments but here's my take. Santa Cruz bikes at a mid tier spec / price point are amazing, modern, dependable and solid bikes. Ride out your entry level parts and eventually replace them with what you really want. Lifetime bearings, crash replacement frames, cascade components options and fun paint that always looks better in person. Picking one up from the used market is about as safe a bet there will ever be in a used bike. My 2018 Hightower V2 for example is still relevant with minimal upgrades from SC for 2022. Has two different cascade links available (mullet or longer travel). Pedals really well, descends everything within reason (can be upgraded or beefed up) is around 31lbs and rolls with new bearings every year. As of last week you could buy a brand new 2021 for $5000 on PB buy and sell and there are lots of used ones. Should anyone ever buy a SC, Trek, Yeti for the sticker price of $12,000? Not unless your passion is affordable at that level. For anyone else the options around the mid tier are amazing pickups. Santa Cruz in particular are perfect in this market even if the name isn't as cool as it used to be.

While true it is also hard to build a trail that 90% of riders cant use. And official trail builds are extremely expensive and complicated.
