New Bike, Nomad 4 CC

Here’s Jo’s new bike for the 2019’s season, probably the ultimate bike to shred the Portes du Soleil area!

The bike is a Large Santa Cruz Nomad CC with the X01 build but with a few tweeks!

The handlebars have been changed for a higher rise Race Face 6SIXC, cut down to 780mm.

The brakes are Jo’s favourite and trusty Hope V4 with standard hose and 200mm discs… there might be a few Ti bolts there too!

A pair of RevGrips Medium grips for comfort and precision (you can read Jo’s review here) round up the cockpit.

Colour matched Revgrips and Hope V4

Jo’s also swapped the original 175mm carbon crankset for a shorter and burlier Hope Evo with a 32T oval ring (it does help with technical climbs).

The Hope F20 are starting their 4th season, so far they’ve only needed 1 service!

A new shock might be in here soon… watch this space!

The Reverb seatpost has also been replaced by a 185mm (!) of cable actuated travel Yep Uptimizer, Jo has been riding with a 170mm prototype for 2 seasons with no issue whatsoever so this one should be just as good!

185mm of travel!

The bike’s also got a pair of Alexrims Recon carbon wheels that are going to be tested all summer.

The tyres are fitted with Morzine made Tyre Yogourt sealant and valves, some more products that Jo has tested with success last summer.

Finally the frame decals are available from any Santa Cruz dealer, the fork ones are coming from Slick Graphics.

Ready to ride this 170mm travel “mini-DH” only weighs 13,7kg!!

Now, let’s ride!!
