    Bronson remote control of shock settings

    Does the Bronson take advantage of the new handlebar mounted shock controls provided by the new Fox CTD system? If so has anything tried that setup?

    I haven't seen this in any of the photos.

    Thanks,

    I have it on my Blur TRc, If I had to do it all over again I would just get the normal shock mounted switch. Yes it's nice to have the switch on the bars however it's big, clumsy, and awkwardly mounted and I honestly don't like it. If they made a smaller one that was designed to be used with both the brake and rear derailleur controls so it has a clean look and not so awkward mount placement I'd be all in. IMHO save the $ and just get the regular shock mounted option.

    The Bronson doesn't have dedicated cable routing for it.. Also, I don't think CTD remote is an option from SC.

    This is correct. I built mine with Colorado Cyclist, the fork come with a cable guide where it is attached to the bottom of the crown. It's a nice option and convenient don't get me wrong it's just the levers size and shape just bugs the hell out of me on my bars. I'll try to get a photo for you later so you can see.

    Here you go. If you notice the lever has 2 barrel adjusters. The second one is actually for the shock, that way you can adjust both fork and shock at the same time if you want too. Hope this helps

    Thanks much for posting the pictures! I see what you mean regarding the size and awkwardness of the cables and shifters. I agree with your comment on integration - this sure seems like something that we might see in a future version, but who knows?

    I've talked to my local suspension guy who is close with the people at fox about this, he told me another lever is already in the works
