Just finished up a great day today building up my new Santa Cruz Nomad at Avanti Plus, Richmond. Fuelled by Sublime coffee and donuts Gazza did a stirling build of this iconic trail bike. 

Great thing about bike shops, they are the centre of the community with people coming and going all the time getting ready for their next commute through to backcountry missions. Being part of this community in Nelson is motivating, can't wait to hit the trails this weekend. The day was appropriately capped off with a few brews from Garage Project

Thanks to Mike and Sandra at Hyperperformance Hardware Santa Cruz Bicycles NZ for providing such an incredible trail machine.
