NEW NOMAD CARBON – APRIL FOOLS TURNS OUT TO BE NO JOKE

The New Nomad Carbon has arrived in all it’s wonder, details below, but many of you may have missed the inclusion of one time local Wollongong resident Dylan Wolsky, smashing turns in the big leagues on the pink and blue nomad in the above edit. Sick work Dylan.

“The new Nomad sends the all mountain category into Andean Mountain sized territory. Now in its third generation, the full carbon frame has been completely redesigned to stay ahead of enduro racing’s ever-more DH trajectory. An aggressive 65 degree head angle delivers V10 handling at Syndicate speeds. We’ve also added a V10-style upper link, increased VPP travel to 165mm and improved small bump performance.

The one-by only design also permits a neatly recessed and protected lower link, resulting in some seriously compact chainstays. Match that with an inch more reach in the cockpit, and you’ve got the ideal set-up for tearing down the side of Chilean stratovolcanoes.
The ground-up redesign incorporates a steeper seat tube angle, creating an efficient pedaling position for total liaison stage domination.

And as ever with carbon technology, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The internal cable routing is so trick it’s a shame it never sees the light of day. Thin carbon fibre tubes molded into the frame from entry to exit, ensuring completely integrated hassle-free routing every time. All wrapped up in stealth black or aqua/magenta colors with coordinated fork and wheel decals, the new Nomad shows just how rad things can get with some single-ring-minded focus.” ….View More

ALL NEW SHIMANO – XTR, WHEELSETS & MORE

New XTR caliper & Freeze disc

It’s around every three years that a component group at Shimano will see a update and many thought that this release would be the big change. Speculation led many to believe perhaps a electronic driven drive train or perhaps a move more toward eleven speed with XTR groupset due for it’s overhall.
There is no indication of a new groupset here although there are some adjustments to XTR however the release  also focuses on some of the gaps in the market introducing some 27.5 wheelsets and indeed lighter wheelsets on the whole. … Read on

SILT ON STONE – NSW STATE RD 4 STROMLO (PICTORIAL)

After complications with a little project on Saturday (nothing serious), I only ended up going to one day of the fourth round of the NSW state series at Mt Stromlo. Race Day.
This is certainly not the first time I have been to Mt Stromlo and neither is it the first time the track at Stromlo has been seen (World Cups, Championships National and World, Nationals, State), this presented a challenge ripe for one days worth of photography fun. Even with the new section barely touched photographically, I was much more panicked. Would and could I get the shots, the right shots. Much used to a days worth of practice to bag those safety shots, there could be no screw ups.
