I got it for a bargain price and I knew there was a few issues with it. I've had to change the rear end bearings in it and I found a small crack on the seat post weld that I had to have sorted. But even after all that it's still come in at costing about £1100. But as I sold and swapped other parts to get it, what it's actually cost me is hardly anything :D

    I'd be worried if he had tried to weld up a carbon frame. ;)

    Yeah alloy, even I'm not that stupid to think to weld carbon ;)

    I should have listed the spec:

    Mk1 nomad frame with dhx5.0 shock
    Fox van 36 forks
    Thompson lay back seat post
    Easton monkey bar handle bars
    PRO koryak stem
    SLX 2x10 drive chain with shadow+ rear mech
    Formula 'the one' brakes
    Mavic cross trail rear wheel
    Hope hoops/dt Swiss front wheel.

    I think that's it :)

    I do believe that's a MK2 Nomad, as the Mk1's had a regular 1'1/8th" head tube and that appears to have a 1.5", the reducer Hope headset gives it away :wink:

    Ah ok, I was just going by what the guy I bought it off told me.

    Many thanks :D

    a few changes to the original spec. some new pedals, tyres and a new set of lyrics as the fox 36's I had died.

    yeah that colour was out of stock unfortunately :lol:

    I should have said I've put on a 50mm superstar stem and a set of 740mm rethal fatbars too. it's improved it no end
