The Nomad has a 1.5" headtube. To get the full benfit of 1.5, we recommend a proper 1.5" steerer fork for a stiffer front end.
There are also plenty of reducing headsets on the market which allow use of the larger bearings of the 1.5" system along with your 1 1/8 fork. If you want to continue using your current 1 1/8" headset, give us a call and we can sell you some headtube reducers.
The Nomad uses a 30.9mm seatpost. Make sure you always have it inserted a minimum of 4" (100mm). We are big fans of the adjustable seatposts on the market from Gravity Dropper and Crank Brothers, and have included guides on the frame to cleanly run the cables.
34.9mm (supplied with frame)
The Nomad uses a normal 135 x 10mm quick release hub.
In general, the Nomad was designed for a 160mm fork. The longest we allow is 180mm of travel- any longer will void your warranty. You probably shouldn't go any shorter than 150mm for geometry reasons, but that is up to you.
8.5" x 2.5" (216x 63mm)
The mounting hardware is 22mm (21.8mm for rockshox products) wide with an 8mm through hole.
The Nomad uses a 73mm bb shell, so make sure you always get something compatible with that. Pretty much any external bearing crankset will work- Truvativ, shimano, etc. Chainline should be 50-51mm.
The Nomad uses the ISCG05 interface, so most guides that are sold with these mounts should fit.
Our favorite here is the Gamut Guide, but we have a lot of good experience with the E-thirteen SRS and LG1 as well.
Please do not use the "taco" style bashguard with the LG1 or MRP G2 (see the taco FAQ for details). If you want an MRP, we recommend the System 3 ISCG05. Many bottom bracket mount guides should work as well, as well as the various dual-ring guides on the market.
Yes. However there are a couple things you need to know.
If you sustain a heavy enough impact on your guard, it may damage or break the ISCG mount on your frame. If this happens, we will not give you a new frame under warranty.
The frame still works, and you can still use a variety of chain guides and bash guards, but you might have to live with crumpled ISCG mounts. This will not effect the integrity of your frame, and we won't hold it against you if you send your frame in for some other reason at some other point in time.
At this time, we are offering the Fox DHX Air and DHX Coil, as well as the Rockshox Monarch 3.3.
The Nomad requires a 34.9mm top swing (low clamp) top pull front derailleur. Pretty much anything from sram or shimano (except Saint) that meets the above description will work.
We hate to answer this question, as tires vary so much (even tires of the same exact model can vary significantly). In general, a 2.5" or maybe even bigger should fit- but it depends...
