- SC Butcher or Nomad (ALU)
Hi all, after looking at various brands ive finally decided to go for an SC, i like the the look of both the Butcher and the Nomad, both with R Am build, i know the Nomad is a bit more but i wouldnt mind paying it if really is worth it and is something i can progress my riding on! I will mainly be using on local trails, welsh trail centres and maybe some light DH.
I had a quick go with the Butcher on a carpark (please no sausage jokes!!) and liked the feel of it ( it gets worse!) but i’ll try and demo them both properly over the next few weeks.
Id just like to hear your thoughts to try and make my decision easier before i go and spunk a shit load of money!Posted 8 years ago

The lad below talks sense.
I’d think twice about buying a santa cruz full build as they’re hideously overpriced IMO. Wouldn’t you be better buying a frame and building it up? I managed to build up a far better speced Heckler than the top of the range version for significantly less cash, simply by shopping around.
Butcher Frame reduced at stif just now as well!Posted 8 years ago
I demo’d butcher and nomad back to back on the same trails – Nomad won hands down…Posted 8 years ago

Looks good and you can fiddle around building it !
Nickel is suspiciously cheap at Stif as well. Wonder if it’s getting binned?Posted 8 years ago
SC are stopping production with none on the water due to not being able to produce enough carbon frames and not selling as many nickels and butchers due to blurs nomads etc being more popular.Posted 8 years ago
