Slack, Slack, Slack......slackboy

Yeah, I know, I'm still not very good at this updating my blog often stuff. I've been riding my new Nomad (it's lovely) and working my butt off to try to get more of them into the country and some more new LT's and some more Ibis Mojos, etc.
So to keep you guys busy, you can ogle Jim's new 2009 Nomad (he's the friendly chap at Outside Sports in Queenstown.....very knowledgeable too). A BIG THANKS to Patrick Fallon again for the nice pictures.
For those of you that need to do some reading, check out these other local blogs;
Slack Boy (Ricky Pincott, the friendly chap at Burkes and rides weird bikes, who may be even slacker than me at updating his blog), but he did test ride the new Blur LT. He liked it sooo much that he manage to update a blog and write a review about it, check it out.
Also a BIG WELCOME to Rita, our latest addition to the Santa Cruz DH team. You can check out Rita's blog here Rita is very good at keeping a blog.
Blog number three goes to Celia, she's a avid Santa Cruz fan and she rides bikes. All good here;
Hopefully that distracts you guys from the fact I haven't done an update for quite some time now.

New Nomad

I got my new Nomad just a few weeks ago.....managed to land a handfull just before the dollar got too crappy and also beat the magazines to their reviews.

It just seems to do everything that bit better than the last Nomad....climbs like a no six inch bike just sweet as.

Anyhow, above is a picture of my lovely new Nomad (any colour you like as long as it's white) and below is what What Mountainbike UK have to say. Review is hot off the press, sent to Santa Cruz via the UK distributor......I think WMBUK pretty much like it. still here? Why aren't you on the phone ordering your new Nomad?
