Default Is the '07 Santa Cruz Nomad's geometry different from the '05? Does it affect

the Nomad's versatility? In Mountain Bike Action magazine's first test of the Santa Cruz Nomad back in 2005, its head angle was 68 degrees, seat tube angle was 71 degrees, and wheelbase was 43.6 inches. Now in the February 2007 issue of Mountain Bike Action, the Nomad's geometry has changed: head angle is 67 degrees, seat tube angle is 70 degrees, and wheelbase is 44.1 inches.Does it mean that '07 frames are different from those made in '05? Do these differences in frame geometry affect the Nomad's versatility as "the one bike" (the bike that can climb and descend equally well)?
