    V1 Bronson?

    Hey guys!

    I've ridden a GT karakoram hard tail for the last few years. Been fun, but time to try out something just a little nicer. I've got my eyes on a v1 SC Bronson (2015).

    This particular bike has had one owner, and after meeting the guy, my review of the bike, and the trails he rides, I'm confident that the bike has been well maintained, cared for, and not ridden too hard. The components are as follows:

    2015 V1 Bronson C
    SRAM GX drive train
    Pike RCT3 fork
    Monarch rear shock
    SRAM guide brakes
    KS lev integra dropper

    I like a playful bike and I ride a lot of different styles of trails. I live in Colorado Springs, but will be taking the bike on trips to Moab, St. George, Durango, Park City, and wherever else the wind takes me.

    Asking price is $2100. In your opinion, is this a good purchase?

    Yep. I have the same bike, and have ridden it in a lot of the same places you ride. I did replace it this year with something with more "modern" geometry. It'll handle all but the double blacks at most resorts, but something a little longer and slacker will be more forgiving of any mistakes. For reference, I replaced it with a 2018 RM Altitude. If I wasn't single and kidless, I would still be on the Bronson.

    Thanks a ton for the input! I ended up going ahead with it. Took her on her first ride today in Colorado Springs. A 15 mile loop on a trail called chutes and a black diamond called Captain Jack's. Never had more fun on a mountain bike in my life!!!
