The road salt is long gone and I've finally been able to get out an use this. Just over 1000 miles of the quietest Suffolk backroads, lanes, tracks and bridleways.   Perfect for my needs. Well done Thorn designers and the workshop team who put it together.

Hope that rides as nice as it looks.  At a glance it doesn't look that dissimilar to my Mercury, I'm curious to ride a Nomad to feel how different they are, though just curious, not looking for another bike....

For me itís kind of like a mercury but for a heavier rider. It has 700c wheels and marathon supreme 40c tyres which are comfy

It looks fabulous.
After all the years of shoving 26" wheels.............
I bet it rides great too.
Beautiful place to park it for that photograph. A proper camera too I bet. I simply use my mobile phone these days as cant be bothered carrying a camera, which is a shame really.
Enjoy it!
John

Thanks for the comments. Iím very pleased with the ride and comfort. Iím not bothered about speed and just use it to go exploring at my own pace. But the pic is from a mobile phone. Iíve just upgraded. My last phone lasted me 6 years and would have kept going If I hadnít dropped it without the case on. You can see how camera tech has developed in that time.

That looks great.  Is this the 58L size and if so, do you mind me asking your height?

Iím considering getting one of these fine bikes and think Iím between sizes.

Many thanks

John

Hi. Yes it is a 58L. Iím 5í11Ē

In 2014 I had a trip to Somerset to get measured and got nomad mk2 590L. Perhaps give Thorn a call and speak to them about your measurements.
