Because this is Way of the Bicycle, this blog, and all its associated Bike Pron should cover all bikes, right? Well, maybe not recumbents because those things are the ultimate in Fred vehicles. Pictured above is a Fox rear shock mounted on a Santa Cruz Carbon Nomad. Despite the price tag being above $6,000, I still drool over this thing whenever I see it. Would I be able to ride it effectively? Probably not. I ride mostly asphalt and the last mountain bike I had was one of those rigid steel triangles that did a better job of rattling your bones rather than getting you places. So here it is, bicycle fans. Drool…DROOL!
