Trevor’s Nomad is currently setup to slay descents and climb comfortably from the bottom of the day’s last bike park run to his car. That climbing handicap can be almost entirely blamed on the Sram 7-spd XO1 group. The crisp shifts and rear derailleur security are all part of why full DH rigs are so fun to ride.
