    Two choices, list pro vs con

    I'm considering building a 27.5 bike and have narrowed it down to two bikes both Santa Cruz. A Bronson @ 150mm and the Solo @ 125mm travel my current bike (08 Turner RFX) is 160mm of coil sprung sweetness and I plan on keeping it would the Bronson be too close to what I'm riding now? Would I not like the shorter travel of the Solo my current bike is very good for the terrain I ride.

    I keep going back and forth between the two give me a pro/con list to help make a decision.

    Can't help you decide, don't know you or your terrain. Here's what I can offer:

    I have a really, really (I mean, really) dialed '12 Titus El Guapo 160mm coil/coil. I just bought a Bronson. The EG's current status in the stable is now in question. For me, though, I didn't consider the Solo as it was available and that level of travel wasn't of interest.
