    Bronson vs. Carbine 275?

    I have been riding a Carbine 275 demo for a few days, and am impressed.
    Anybody ridden both?
    Cheers.

    I've briefly demoed both, unfortunately at two dramatically different locations, so I can't provide the most constructive feedback... What stood out the most is that the Intense had an awfully playful front -- a little too playful for me on uphills (I had to get off the saddle to keep the front end down).

    yeah the carbine i demoed had a revelation 150 up front 32mm i believe.
    I just loved how maneuverable it was and easy to wheelie.
    worried that you give some of that up with the longer wb and cs...
    demo time...
    thanks for the input

    I rode both at Sea Otter last month. Ended up ordering the Carbine when I got back. Both felt very similar fit wise but even though the Bronson had Enve wheels, the Carbine just felt lighter and more fun to me. Bronson seemed a little more hard core enduro. Nothing wrong with it but just more than I needed.
