    Firebird 27.5 Compared to Bronson: Is more travel better for 27.5/650b?

    Got a chance at Sea Otter to hop on the Bronson and the new Pivot Firebird 27.5 (a conversion). Our take on the two in a kind of mini-shootout. If the 650b/27.5 category is aimed at Enduro, isn't more travel better?

    Honestly, I'm not really sure what your real point is in posting this thread on a Pivot forum other that to get people to click on the link to your site. Since you didn't actually test the bikes on trail conditions, kinda hard to categorize your rides as shoot outs. The Bronson and FB have different target markets, simple as that. 650b is not just an Enduro wheel - good for XC (ask Nino Schurter) to DH (Logan Binggeli and Kevin Aiello are doing well on KHS).

    No just a rider trying to figure out 27.5. Sorry if I offended anyone.

    Nah, not offended. Your post with the interview you did with Chris C. was cool and thanks for sharing it. Just seemed like you were fishing for hits with the last post which didn't really sit well.

    Blog posts seem too long for forums but I see your point about hit-phishing. Maybe there's a better way. Will keep in mind when posting...and thanks for the thumbs up on Chris interview!
