So I've had my Bronson for a little over a year. Best (most expensive) bike I've ever owned; I love it. It rails beyond my capabilities. As with everyone else I was drooling over the 2016 bikes; not cause I need a new bike but just because they're dope.
I decided to invest in my 2015 Bronson as I'm going to keep it for a while. I did the OneUp conversion already and next up was a new shock. Every Bronson related shock post I've read is how the Fox ctd is the weakest link on a dope bike. I thought the Fox shock was good but then I had nothing to compare it to as this was my first nice bike. After a lot of research and saving up some coin I found a used (new) DBInline. Well, I did my first ride today, a short one cause of time. Holy sh!t...I can't believe what a difference. It was a wet ride here in the east bay (NorCal) so the trails were great in some areas and mudded out in a few. I did get a decent taste and am blown away. Climbed good on the fire road up but the amazing part was on the steep technical portion (it's called little Moab to give you an idea of the terrain). No bottom out, no pedal strikes (where I did sometimes prior), great instant pedal power on switchbacks, etc.. The other area I could tell a huge improvement was a flow section with some jumps and tight turns with drops, etc..
Rambled on a little too much but in short this shock on the Bronson is a game changer. It's like a new bike! I can't wait to log some more miles. Anyone considering this upgrade, don't wait...treat yourself to an early X-Mas present.
