Wesley Eadswrote a review of Santa Cruz Bicycles Bronson Carbon 27.5+ S Complete Mountain Bike on July 11, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm a huge fan of Santa Cruz's lineup and this bike is no exception. With the new lower linkage rear suspension system Santa Cruz has managed to create a mid long travel bike climb really well. I typically don't lock my suspension out on any bike when I climb and compared to the previous version this suspension system delivers significantly less bob.
The 27.5+ tires definitely don't roll as well on the way up but grip corners really well on the decent. And the lower linkage really does preform much better at the top and more consistently through the stroke. Overall this bike is a blast to ride and delivers some of the snappy feel you may get out of a 5010 with the hard charging feel of a Megatower.
I am 6'2" 175 with a 34" inseam. I typically ride and XL but can still comfortably ride a L with some adjustment for a bit more playful feel. I usually run pretty stock shock tune in the front but I would recommend 20-30 psi more than your body weight in the rear.
