I've had my Bronson CC for a couple months now, and am extremely pleased with my choice. Living here in UT, it's important to have a versitile mountain bike to handle the varrying terrain - so far, the Santa Cruz Bronson CC is up to the task and taking it all in stride. Yesterday, I decided to extend my cross-country loop and headed over to the terrain park - I rode up to the top of the park, and back down the freeride trail without having to even put a foot down, just a couple suspension/seat height adjustments mid-pedal, and I was good to go.
The Bronson II is the most capable bike I've had the pleasure of riding thus far. My previous bike was a Tallboy LTc for reference (a great bike, but I am really appreciating the 27.5 wheels on the Bronson). I am 6'2 and got the Large - the size chart says I could go L or XL - personally, I like the added flickability of the Large frame and haven't noticed any stability issues.
