    Bronson Review on Wired

    Review: Santa Cruz Bronson C Mountain Bike

    The review is pretty weak but the comments at the bottom are worth it.

    Out of the mouth of babes. As a "Bike Enthusiast" I whole heartedly agree 10k is to much
    for a production model bike. First the doctors and lawyers took over the Harley scene now they have driven MTB'ing out of reach for the working class!
    UGG boots will germinate Paris Hilton like intellect in your soles!

    Or retiring baby boomers filling out their bucket lists: example:

    Buy a $10k Bronson; take it to Fruita CO; score some legal and killer ganja, ride like it was 30 years ago, and make an ass out if yourself saying "dude" a lot and trying to be relevant even with a gut and gray hair (or no hair).

    My kids hate boomers. Their kids will hate millennials. And so on...never changes. As long as we can ride and get high together, maybe not so bad.

    RE: Bronson Review on Wired

    What's up with wired getting bike releases anyways? Just a couple weeks ago they got the first scoop on the Ripley.

    If it's on Wired, does that make it geeky?
    I like to jump to conclusions, oversimplify, gossip, and participate in popularity polls.

    pfft cheap chinese carbon will rescue us poor folks. Those of us who have realized that VPP is only one means to an end. Once you can get a reasonably well performing carbon bike with a decent pivot height and rising rate linkage, the $2000 you save in frame only costs will neuter the market, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    I kind of like warranties. And though my teeth are all jacked up, I kind of like them too. Will stick with SC or other local brands that have something to lose, thanks.
