Bike 5/5 - Customer service 5/5 - Product info/Delivery time 3/5 - So I read all 1-2 star reviews and it got a bit worried at first. But the deal on my Nomad was to good to pass on. As I undertand it Backcountry acts as a umbrella organisation for a number smaller companies (I might be wrong here?). After looking closer att the bad reviews it seems to be for products that are cheap and basically doesn't have a 2nd hand value of some sort. Maybe most of these products come from the same store? Like my bike didn't actually come from backcountry it self, it was built by a company called Competitivecyclist. So for my own experience, the only somewhat negative thing I have to say about it was that when I ordered the bike there was no clear information of how it would actually take for me to receive the bike because it had to be built. Thinking it was going to take 7-10 at longest to get the bike. I contacted them and I was told it takes 4-6 weeks due to COVID-19 and all. Got me a bit frustrated but they instead upgraded the shipping from regular to 2-day express without me even asking... That sure smoothed thing out a bit. To my suprise the bike arrived already after 3 weeks, not 4-6 weeks ETA I was first told. Also pictures of the website didn't match 100% the actual bike when it arrived as I will explain bellow. Bike arrived nicely packed, the only thing I had to do was to assemble the wheels and the handlebar + set up the suspension to my weight. Unfortunately it arrived with the Rockshox Super Deluxe R and not the Rockshox Super Deluxe Select+ like this product is advertised with now. To be fair the bike was advertised back then with the Rockshox Super Deluxe R but on the pictures it showed a shock with a lock out valve like the Rockshox Super Deluxe Select+. I tried finding info regarding the Rockshox Super Deluxe R online but couldn't find any. I guess this is a model only sold together with builds only? That was a big dissapointment because for me it's essential when climbing and now I'll have to go out and source a new rear shock.

Did you get a screen grab of the product description? I noticed right away my nomad c s has the Deluxe R when I was expecting the Select+, like yourself. Seems strange because the Carbon R kit listed has the same Deluxe R as our supposedly higher tier S kit. Support assured me the Deluxe R is correct, I'm obviously disappointed, too. Also, my bike shifts like sh*t out of the box, so there's that. Packaging was nice though.

How much does this bike weight? Wondering what the weight savings is vs the aluminum frame.
