Riccardo Bargagli was dreaming of a bike, his dream centred around the new Nomad from Santa Cruz. This is our bike of the week.
He was thinking about it for at least a year before Santa Cruz released it. This is the realisation of his dream, his completely custom build Nomad prepared by Bagnoli Bike in Castiglione della Pescaia. Riccardo regularly rides his bike on the Enduro World series trails in Punta Ala and likes how well the Nomad handles the rough trails.
