Doug Conwaywrote a review of Santa Cruz Bicycles Bronson Carbon 27.5 S Complete Mountain Bike on October 2, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I got to demo this bike for an afternoon on various terrain.
Coming from a Nomad, I thought the Bronson was very lively and poppy and was obviously much easier to pedal uphill.
Enough travel to soak up some bigger hits, but still felt efficient pedaling. It’s a bike that makes you want to go fast and pop off of every little side hit.
There’s a very good chance this will be my next bike!
