Those photographs really show the bike off. It is beautiful!
I'd like to mention that your photos just cost me a lot of money as I realise that, yes, I really do NEED the rear Carradice panniers. Thanks a lot!
Are the bar ends also comfortable, and do you ride much with your hands on them? I have bar ends but dont' really like the feel of them and was thinking of either going the same route as you or trying out the Humpert AHS bars.
The Nomads really are very special bikes. I believe that there is nothing as capable out there to do what the Nomad was designed to do. Have you decided on a Name yet? I keep going back and forth between "tumbleweed", "Picaro" and "Frodo". Can't decide. What about you, are you going to imbue some Karma into the bike via a well placed name? How'bout Cisco-tech, rhymes with discotech?
