    Custom build Bronson, 2 questions.

    I am going to do a custom Bronson build. I have two questions.

    I can only find the Fox 34 27.5 fork in 160mm. Anyone know what it takes to reduce the travel to 150mm? Is it just installing a different bumper or is it a more costly endeavor? Any black color models of this fork out there?

    Anyone have the frame only in stock for sale?

    Thanks

    Couple additional questions for you techies as continue to get the parts for my build.

    What headset do I need for Bronson C? If I get a Chris King Headset or Cane Creek Headset which are specific compatible models/sizes?

    I am going to do Hadley hubs. Which rims do you like for the build Arch or Flow.

    Thanks

    Actually you don't just add a spacer, you replace the existing shuttle bumper with a different one. (Like OP said, "different bumper".) Buy yeah, cheap and easy to change assuming you are comfortable with pulling your fork lowers and other basic fork maintenance.

    if you are buying the fork new.
    your dealer should be able to get FOX to spec the fork for travel, black diamond finish, and whichever color stickers you want.
    depending on their relationship to FOX. would depend on how long it takes to get one. probably close to the same amount of time to order and receive a different bumper..
    the new RockShox Pike would be a solid option too.

    I would say King InSet 3, check on competitivecyclist.com as if you were buying frame only, they will give you the correct headset options under the pull down menu. As for the rims, all mountain rig, go with Flow EX.
