I'm delighted to see you using your Nomad (Camel) as intended, Julien. It continues to look fantastic and fit for many more adventures.

Safe and happy travels,

Dan.

Wow! Fantastic Julio. Definitely some for the Thorn marketing literature.

Wow!!  Brilliant stuff, Julien.

That photo from Mauritania makes me think of St.-Exupéry's stories in Wind, Sand and Stars.

Safe journeys, take care of your Camel, and enjoy!

John

Super photographs -- John and I know the red dirt of Africa well.

Great stuff, Julio.  Your Nomad has a purposeful look about it, unfussed by distances and dust.

Safe journeys,  John

...and I like how and where you have a fuel bottle mounted. Thanks for sharing.

My new cockpit   









I replaced a flat handlebar by a comfort ( thanks at Julk who gave me his handlebar  ;)), GP5 Ergon grip by a GP1, and replaced a Rohloff shifter grip after around 20000 kms. 
 
I cuted 45 mm of my steerer, add a Quad lock system for sometimes use maps.me on my Huawei

Interesting, Julio. Why did you change your cockpit? Did you need a slightly different riding position?
Thanks

Not really, even with the flat handlebar i felt comfortable, no pain but just sometimes (i don't know why..) a numbness on my left hand.
I wanted just a slightly more relaxed position, cut my high steerer, and get only one and perfect position.

I'm not a Dr so I'll confine my thoughts to bike matters. :D
I too am fine tuning my Nomad cockpit and am considering changing my Kalloy  AS-021 UNO  1 1/8"  Ahead  Stem  +17 Deg  -  31.8mm  Clamp -  Black  -  90  mm for something slightly shorter. I flipped mine to achieve a more comfortable height but would also like to bring my bars, with Ergon gp5s  a little closer to me. 20mm will probably do it. All good fun and I might take a closer look at the comfort bar geometry whilst I'm at it.
Thanks for posting.
