Wait so the gov was actually involved in building this? I always assumed they just let it be, but didn’t build it. Fucking incredible - I dream of how my jumping would progress if we had stuff like this

personally I’d have to run too high of psi to prevent potential harsh bottom out on more aggressive hits than I’d want overall without spacers.

Video: The Basics of Modern Mountain Bike Geometry - The Explainer
thanks for the input guys, lots to consider also, fyi when i said upgrade I should have specified that I would not upgrade to the v4 nomad...would probably look at a slightly overforked 130-150mm rear travel bike of some kind....that's a whole other can of worms... ripmo / hightower / sb130 lunch ride....and I'm sure 10+ other solid choices.

Video: The Basics of Modern Mountain Bike Geometry - The Explainer
@nurseben: well my predicament lies in that I wasn’t quite ready to pull the trigger on a new build, and most of my drivetrain was way overdue for replacement, so I went ahead and got a new cassette/chainring/mech pulleys/chain. Pistons were shot in one of my zees so I just swapped to a saint out of necessity. I’m tired of the lack of adjustability on my lyric, but it feels questionable whether I should swap a 36/38 on there or just rebuild my lyric and deal with it until I’m ready for a frame up. I’ve historically swapped AM bikes every 5yrs or less as I hadn’t found one I really liked the fit on, and the nomad has been my favorite so far. I’m rambling, but I guess I just have this feeling that it’s so soon to already be building a new bike when I like the one I have. Plus it’s hard to be excited about cutting a huge check for a new frame Up when I could just get a new fork and maybe be happy for another 3-5yrs.

I’m currently faced with the decision of whether to upgrade or replace my nomad 3...friends claim newer geo trends climb better and descend as well...has there really been that much change since ~2015? https://www.santacruzbicycles.com/en-US/bike/nomad/3 I do like my nomad, and I ride it so much I’d have a really hard time comparing it to any demo fleet bike that doesn’t have my suspension, tires, brakes etc...like most of us I’m particular what I’m used to. Maybe there isn’t an answer to this, but if anyone has thoughts about maybe what weaknesses they see in that generation’s geo compared to the even more modern trend I’d appreciate it. It definitely seems to have a slacker STA than what I see nowadays (visually...I probably should start comparing the actual numbers lol). Is that all it takes to make a bike a better pedaler? That said, based on the vid it sounds like geo is all over the place with different brands, so maybe not a comparison that’s easy to make? It’s funny to have taken a sport so seriously but feel clueless with stuff like this. I used to struggle dialing in my suspension back in the day, but at least with that you can hunker down and start testing on the trails etc...I just don’t know how to learn what I could / would prefer from a geo shift when I can’t get a frame up demo for several days with all my same components and setup that I currently have.

@Davec85: I never understood this argument...do you people not have a rear brake? I learned manuals and wheelies clipped in....never looped, no real close calls... I’m not some phenom, a tap of the rear brake and down the the front goes. Stoppies are a bit scarier to learn, but ultimately the same exact thing just reversed...release the brake and you’re fine. It’s a relatively slow process and some people struggle more than others, but honestly it seems most people who would buy a manual trainer also lack the dedication to learn it anyways.

@carlitouk: this happens all too frequently...and yes it drives me absolutely insane. Then you’ll hear some gaper talking about how “good of shape” the trails are in...now that their incompetent ass can actually ride them. Not all trails need to be a manicured snooze fest with supported corners and no rutted jank...feels bad.
