    New question here. A SC Bronson 29er?

    Hello

    What would ya say to a Bronson 29er from Santa Cruz?
    They it is no possible or something along the lines. I do not actually agree. Bronson is 27,5= 584mm rimm and 29er goes with 622mm that makes the difference of 38mm. All this makes me believe that an AM 27,5" bikes which hanles superb can't be a couch in a 29er varierity.

    Again it is not 63mm difference like it used to be between 26 559mm and 29er 622mm rim. So they cannot screen themselves like it is too far off from each other.

    Anyway Specialized Enduro 29 with 155mm rear travel has chainstays of 430mm, so why not Bronson 29er.

    Come on now you're the expert constantly telling builders what is possible and what not.

    Funny how you can't even grasp the difference between a dual link suspension and the FSR which has an effect on how short you can get the chainstays.

    Well Bronson 29er would be better off as a Nomad 29er. Really there is a chance that they stop producing this 26-27,5" kiddy wheel stuff.

    The Lenz Lunchbox is a 6 inch travel 29er with 16.7" chainstays!
    The Intense Carbine is a 140 mm travel 29er.
    The Niner WFO is a 150mm 29er.

    The TBLT is 135mm, and is a great bike, but there is no reason why SC couldn't go with an even more AM oriented 29er. Will they? Maybe when all this 27.5 hype dies down.
