Santa Cruz Nomad 2016 Medium

Hi. Up for sale is my 2016 Santa Cruz Nomad mk3 size medium in black. If you're looking at this ad I don't need to tell you how good these bikes are, so I won't!!! (But they are!!) I'm only selling the bike as I'm just not getting to ride it at the moment due to work and family commitments, and I can't justify keeping it to ride once every couple of months :(

The bike has just had a full service of everything including all suspension, brakes, and gears, so it seems a good time to sell it - for my peace of mind and yours, knowing it won't need anything doing for the foreseeable. I have ridden the bike once since all the servicing and couldn't quite get the gears spot on (although they shift perfectly on the stand), so I have ordered a new XT rear derailleur which will be included in the sale, along with the XTR which is fitted and working - just not quite right.

The bike comes with a carbon downtube frame protector and has been invisiframed from new, so the frame is in fantastic condition with the protection having done it's job brilliantly. There is a small chip on the swing arm which has sadly gone through the invisiframe, but that's the only one, and it isn’t bad. Apart from that the frame is pretty much spotless.

The bike also comes with a grease kit, and full replacement bearing kit including the bearing fitting tools, and a spare derailleur hanger too. I was going to do this job after this winter as the bearings felt smooth when the shock was out being serviced.

I can box the frame up safely and post if desired, or it can be collected/inspected in Daventry, Northants.

I think that just about covers it. The bike really is in great condition. And you are more than welcome to come and view it in Daventry, or I can safely package and post it (at cost) to anyone who is too far away.

I can send photos to anyone who is interested, and will upload some when I figure out how to lower the photo quality.

Thanks for looking, Sergio
