I'll chime in here way late just to defend the honor of the Nomad for anyone that's considering one.

I've had my Nomad for years and have hauled it all over the place with multiple bikes. No...

One thing I like about the BD is that the rear is built to the xtracycle dimensions, if I'm not mistaken. That means all the xtracycle accessories should fit. There is not one dominant standard in...
