    Bronson shipping delays??

    Curious how long it's taking everyone to get their Bronsons? Ordered mine 1st week of July from shop in NH and latest ETA is mid October. Ordered Large Carbon Black frame and has been delayed couple times already.

    I had a feeling that was going to happen. My shop told me in June/July that I could order a Bronson and have it mid-September. I decided to drive 150 miles each way to find one at a shop on the floor. I couldn't imagine the wait, hope you guys get your bikes quick. You'll love em!!

    In my case, I had a L aluminum Bronson. Liked it so much (and it was ever-so-slightly too small) that I ordered an XL carbon without shock.

    Unfortunately, my alu frame sold faster than expected so my Blindside has become my daily driver. Was in the shop yesterday and was told still mid-October.

    How much of a discount did you get for no shock? Just wondering cause I may buy a Solo and want to put a DBAcs on it. Didn't know you could order without a shock, so wondering which would be cheaper, Frame no shock and buy the DBAcs of Frame with shock, sell take off and buy DBAcs

    I'm on my second Santa Cruz in 2 years. Both bikes were 60-90 days later then what Santa Cruz said. Sorry guys. Waiting sucks. Just being honest.

    My shop told me two weeks ago that it'd be here by 10/10. XL Bronson C Yellow frame only. Called them yesterday to see if we were still on track and they said Santa Cruz no longer knew. Anyone from this batch heard anything yet?

    Just contacted my shop today and they were going to check with SC. Though I've been having a blast on my SS, I'm ready for my squishy bike.

    I paid in full in late August and nothing yet. If Rage comes through with a large Mach 6, I'm probably going to cancel my order. Bummed, but it's prime riding weather here in AZ.

    Finally received my Bronson C last week after 4 months wait. Happy to report that I couldn't be any happier with my decision minus hit on bank account. Loved my '05 BLT but it was beat beyond its years. No more flex anywhere, torsionally stiff where needed, geometry was instantly comfortable. Killer climbing and oh so confident on the downhills. Was torn between the carbon BLT and TB LT and then Bronson was released which seemed the perfect balance. Wheel size doesn't take away from agility but improved rolling resistance over objects definitely noticeable. Amazing what 6 years difference in technology delivers!! 3rd SC and best one yet!!!

    So shop said mine was supposed to ship last Monday, no dice. They are being told nothing by SC as to when it may ship either. Ordered mine on August 6.

    Man, I don't know how you all are putting up with that wait!! I would be going crazy. Hopefully you get your bikes soon, it's a bad ass ride!

    I ended up canceling my order, so there's one more carbon XL out there, at least theoretically.
